Girly Card

Hello Everyone. It has been a few weeks since I have blogged. Unfortunately I have been dealing with one of my cats over the last 4 weeks. She is only 7, but has been diagnosed with Arthritis in her right hip & Osteoporosis in her pelvis. They have also discovered that she has an extra vertebrae in her spine & are now waiting for tests to see if it has caused any nerve damage. However, I am pleased to say that the medication they have put her on seems to be working. So today I have actually been able to blog a card.

If you follow my blog, you will know that I am not one for doing a lot of pink girly cards. However, I have to admit, with the huge range of images that are now available, I do seem to be enjoying these more. I have used this great image that came free on a cd with a magazine. I have coloured with my Promarkers.

I teamed it with these great Nitwit papers. I then found these flowers hiding in one of my drawers & added gems to the centres. The sentiment is also one that I got a few years ago & hid in a drawer lol!
I have followed the theme of the papers & the sketch through to the inside of the card.

I am hoping that I will begin to get a few more cards made again as I have loads of new things to play with x Clare x
