Welcome to my blog and thanks soso much for spending a little while peeping into my world


whichever order I put them in, these are my passion!

Three more of my drawings are now available as digistamps at the Digistamps 4 Joy store, and the first I have to show you is one called Pinup -Dear Valentine. 

Here is my card using the new image, together with an older image from the store, called Pinup - Pippy Poser.  I merged the two image to make a new single image, using the png versions of both :

Alcohol markers and a white gel pen were used for the colouring and the elements on my card are according to the EASY AS 1-2-3 Challenge on CDAC where the following are required:

1 image
2 designer papers
3 items of bling

Together with those I used:
3 red CS diecuts
paper rose
sewn on sequins and pearl beads
and a key charm tied with a piece of baker's twine

So, my sentiment is on the key.

I think these two images have merged to form one new image in a perfect match, don't you?
I think I will give this card to my friend for her daughters to give to their dad.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
CRAFTY CALENDER, WHAT’S NEW – The baker’s twine is VERY new – I bought I yesterday from a vendor at our Card Guild meeting and the charm was bought on Friday.  The circular die was also bought at the guild meeting yesterday)
