Just beacause.........




Just Because....... I have been missing for a couple of days I thought I would post this little cutie tonight.  I've spent the last couple of days surfing the net ready for our trip, which is looming up fast!!!
If you clicked onto my blog about an hour ago you might have thought you were in the wrong place!!! I was playing with new blog backgrounds.......I feel like a change but can't find anything I like yet!!
This little card is going into the following challenge:  A Spoon Full of Sugar   which is cute and girly.
This little image is one of the ones we stamped off at the Copics Certification Class. I thought I might use my Inkadinks to colour her for a change but wish I'd stuck to Copics for her little face!!!  Nothing I've tried colours faces like Copic markers.
The Base card is a 5 inch square of black card with a layer of American Craft followed by the Basic Grey  Kiosho Paper.   Mulberry Roses and some punched leaves  fill the top corner and I used Copics to colour a white heart pin as well as some white double faced satin ribbon. A Spellbinders Fancy Tags die was cut for the Annabelle Stamps Sentiment.
That's it for now, my friend is home from Hospital and coming for lunch with me tomorrow so I'll have my catering hat on.......Poor her!!!!!

Till next time, take care............
