SPIRAL WHISPERS CHALLENGE - FLOURISHES/INTERNET PROBLEMS

What a day so far, its 4.15pm and i've only just sat at my computer!!! This morning I couldn't get internet access at all, its so frustrating, BT are I have to say useless!! They should replace all the cables down this road according to the engineer we saw this morning, but of course they wont, too costly apparently! Anyway im posting this before I lose my connection again. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. We have been preparing for Jasmines birthday party tomorrow, my baby will be 10 years old on Monday, I don't know where the times gone. We are having a party tomorrow for her school friends, I need to sort out party bags and make the thank you cards, so still have alot to do. To anyone that has emailed me I will reply when I can, depending on the internet. I havn't forgotten any of you though I promise. Thank you for being so understanding.

Havn't had any time for crafting today, but here is the card I finished at midnight last night!


SPIRAL WHISPER CHALLENGE - FLOURISHES
This is my entry into this weeks Spiral Whispers challenge titled Flourishes. I have used the lovely Autumn Milly, I think she's adorable. I have used papers and card from my own stash, unknown brand im afraid. Flowers are Primas, it is a flourish stamps from one of the QVC TSV. Flower gems free from a magazine. I coloured Milly in my pro-markers and used glossy accents on her adorable wellies. I'm becoming very fond of my pro-markers, although I still need to get more practice with them. My camera really isn't giving me the results I hoped for, if you double click on the image, you can see the detail better. I apologise for the poor images.





Spiral Whispers challenge this week is titled Flourishes.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, big hugs Linda x

Hi Linda, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment. I love it when new people stop by, so I can then visit their blog for more inspiration and to admire the creations made by others.

I love your Milly card, she is cute. I have the same flourish stamps as you from the TSV, but haven't used them yet. I must give them a go. Hope your daughter has a great party. sue.x
