From Little Things.......

Australian News:
The news from North Queensland this morning is pretty good all things considered.  So far no reports of loss of life or serious injury......which is fantastic!  The winds got up to 300k an hour which must have been scary!!  There will be damage, already talk about banana crops devastated, so lots more cleaning up to do..... the storm is heading west now and still destructive but it's been downgraded some. 
  
~~~~~~~~~~~




I'm sharing a card made with another of the lovely images donated to help raise some funds for Katie Renz.
(Click on the link in the right side bar).




This image was donated by Mo Manning, another of the generous digital illustrators and it's a great image if you enjoy colouring.


I've kept my card quite simple with blue gingham digital paper over a darker blue card base.
Then I went berserk with ribbon, linen, buttons, paper punches, pearls and Sprinkles.......
well I haven't done that in a while!!!!!
Hope you like her.

Thanks for dropping past today, I'll be back tomorrow with this weeks AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge hope you'll come by to check it out!

You do such a fantastic job with these cute images. You did not go berserk with embellishments - they all really coordinate well. Happy to hear the storm is calming down and it didn't hit your area.
