What a fantastic night we had last night at the open evening. The shop was bursting at the seams and the atmosphere was wonderful. I almost wish we could do it every week........but only!!!
I managed to get just about everything tidied up and back to normal today and by the time I got home I was ready for a bit of 'me' time so I decided to finish off the card I had left drying the other night.

Again I have used the Beautiful Lady With Music image from Karen at Graphics Fairy. I love it so much.
Colouring has been done with various inks and pencils then I added two different Stickles (Crystal and Diamond) to the gauzy fabric she has wrapped around her.
For the background I masked out the image and stamped with a Christmas text (Teal StazOn) and then a snowflake (Moonlight White Brilliance).
The card has been finished with Basic Grey papers.

Once I have had a good soak in the bath I shall be back on track.......well apart from the infection I seem to have picked up on my elbow of all places. I suffer with very dry skin there so it must have cracked and let in a buggy thing. It don't half hurt and I am having to type with my elbow on a folded towel to stop it pressing on the table.
Doing the demo last night was agony when my arm touched the table but hopefully nobody!!!

Right then I am off for a quick squizz around some blogs and then off for my soak and a read.
Bye for now and thanks for your visit.


  1. Beautiful card - I love the image too. Hope your arm feels better soon.

    Glad to hear you had a wonderful evening at the shop!
    I did pop in earlier about 5.00pm but I think you were busy upstairs and unfortunately I couldn't pop back later as I was up for work early on Wednesday!
    I'm glad it all went well!

    Many, many thanks for the Wonderful Award and thank you for thinking of me!
