I was up till 2am this morning crafting, I just couldn't sleep!! Since I have had the flu I am finding it hard to sleep during the night as I am hacking away but I'm able to sleep during the day - I don't get it at all! So, my nights have been turning into day's.
I thought I would have a go at the challenge over at Dottie's World as back in December before I had the massive shopping spree at Craft Central I bought the wonderful new collection Girls About Town, oh my!! it is just GORGEOUS!!! What are you waiting for, get yourselves over there quick if you haven't already!
The challenge was this:
This week the challenge is in the theme;
After all the over indulgence you've most likely had over Christmas ( a few poorly tummies and heads I guess?) The theme this week is Get Well Soon .You don't have to use those words, but it has to be aimed at cheering someone up or wishing them well . If you don't know anyone who's poorly your creation could be wishing them well in their new job or a new home...basically, lots of positive vibes in this card please AND of course a Charmed Download. Nice and easy?
So, it is a friends birthday and she and the family have been having a bit of a rough time of late so I hope this card puts some shine into her life. I just loved creating this card, at first I had a page of the gorgeous My Minds Eye 'Be Merry' paper, I was just staring at it, too good to use and I was just stroking it, I mean it is just so lickable (if that's such a word) but I stopped just before it reached my mouth as I really didn't want to ruin this gorgeous paper! I thought the paper looked like some funky wallpaper so I made a little scene, it looks like she is shopping in a cute Boutique! Ooh La La....
On this particular card I used Nicola, isn't she fab?? I coloured her with my Prismacolor pencils and used Sakura Soufflé pens to add details to her bags and added touches of glitter to make her sparkle.
Base CS is by Bazzill & the strip of blue CS is by Crate Paper & the 'Canopy' is by Sassafrass Lass.
