A Gift of Love......

Good morning everyone, Debs and I went to the Which Craft show in Doncaster yesterday, it was fabulous...I love the craft shows, as I get to meet some of the lovely people I follow on my blog, also I get to buy some goodies that I really, really need lol!!.....I must share this with you...last week I had several challenges that I wanted to enter my "Tutu sweet" card into, I listed them on my blog....but dozy me...didn't link them to the blog challenge pages lol!!! I still can't believe I did that lol!! Hope I remember this week lol!!.. Anyway It's time for Make It Monday#112 Linky Party, and we are sponsored by the lovely Mandy from Cupcake Cards and Craft....My card for this week is a lovely image from Saturated Canary called Blanche .  I made this card for Debs 40th Birthday, and this image is just as I see my little girl now... Beautiful... inside and out, Sophisticated, Confident and she truly is a "A gift of Love" to both myself and my hubby David...

This is the inside

I coloured Blanche with my Prisma pencils, and the lovely papers are Prima - Madeline collection. The beautiful lace is Wild Orchid Crafts. The corners are from Whimsey Stamps. The dies are Spellbinders Lacy Ovals and Marianne LRO157 Flower.. My card is Bazzil  Black, and my sentiment was from the lovely Hannelie at Desert Diva...this lovely lady gives so freely of her talent..please go and pay her a visit, you will not be disappointed with her lovely creations, and regular free sentiments!
