TA DAAAAAAAAAA - Yes a card & New Releases woooo hooo

Hello my darling lovelies how are you all?
 I'm finally here with a card, yay get me. I tried last night but my step-bro had probs so I was on baby-sitting duty. I couldnt decide what to colour first then the gorgeous Krista of Saturated Canary sent me some new images
OMG...........they are so gorgeous & will hopefully be out for release sometime today.....I know I say this everytime but this set is fantastic...........isn't it against the law to be that talented, I'm sure it is!! Yes my green eyes are coming out in complete jealousy but also in total awe of the pretty lady who draws these.............
........isn't she gorgeous!! This is called 'Butterflies', I think lol. This I had to do first 1 because I love her hair & hair is my favourite thing to colour. Secondly because of the butterflies, I love love love butterflies & a whole lot of things that have wings...........even my watermark which is still the first one I got 18 months ago has a butterfly on it..........butterflies & angels I love!!!

I have no idea what challenges are about so this is made from the heart completely, tbh I was worried incase my mojo was still in its sick bed lol. The papers are the gorgeous MME 'Paris & Co' & the edges have been inked with walnut distress ink & matted onto thick kraft card.

The beautiful flowers are Prima 'Miss Godivas' & these ones are 'Mermaid'. You can 9 gorgeous fabric flowers in a pack & they are available in a range of colours.

Of course this beautiful image has been coloured with my trusty copics.....once I got them out of their sulk from not being used lol. The beautiful image of course will be available today from
 Saturated Canary Etsy shop . The butterflies have also had stickles added to them.

The edging along the bottom I used a Memory Box Die 'Butterfly Delights' onto kraft card & edged it with ink. A few of the liitle butterflies from the cut out die I also attached to the card.  The lace above the border is 'The Enchanted Collection'  which are just so pretty. The pearls are Melissa Frances pearls.

Well thats it from me there is a new challenge over at Saturated Canary Challenge blog & its such an easy one, we want to see 'Happy Birthday' creations. How easy is that!!!
Will try pop around see as many of you as I can tonight in between looking after my grand-daughter who is here for the weekend. Thank you soo soooooooo much for your lovely get well wishes they really mean a lot mmwah mmwah.

Papers, lace, butterfly die, pearls, flowers & stickles used are from My Crafty Heart.

Hi all my lovelies how are you all? Yes its me I'm back.......see you just cant get rid of me lol. I'm so sorry for being MIA I've been extremely ill & stuck in bed & not up to using laptop or copics I'm sure have cobwebs on them I've never neglected them for this long before. I am back on my feet now altho still feeling weak but I've also been diagnosed with a couple of things so I need to adjust to a new living style so to speak I shall not bore you all with details tho. I've still got more tests to have but I'm just glad to be out of bed. I have to say thank you to my totally fantastic hubby who has looked after me so well............he really is a total gem & the love of my life. He did offer bed baths but you know men...........yes indeedly doo..........naughty boy lol. When I did feel well enough to feel like using my laptop the darn thing had broke on me, thankfully I back everything up on a weekly basis on a portable external hard-drive so I dont lose anything if the unexpected happens.......phew!!! So hubster brought me a new laptop & I go & pick the one that PC World didnt have in stock.............yep thats me!! I'm totally excited about having it & just kept stroking it yesterday, I've gone girly & had a pink Sony Vaio, its my first ever brand new laptop I've always brought my sons & Craig new laptops & then I've just had their hand-me-downs lol. So I'm so excited about having a brand new all for me so yes its getting lots of strokes at the moment lol.

I have had 3 lots of fantastic news but I'm not sure if I can tell you about 2 of them will keep ssshhhhh for incredibly good tho lol.
However 1 of my fantastic bit of news really cheered me up & if I had the energy I would have been dancing away, arms in the air waving around like a complete loon.......... Ok let me tell you.

Anyway the candy was for £50..........yes I won it!!!!!!!!! Can you darn believe it, I'm still gobsmacked & still keep reading the email, I only found out today so it was truly a big welcome back to blogland.
So my darling Kitty from the bottom of my heart I thank you a billion times sweetie, altho saying thank you just doesnt seem enough but thank you thank you thank you.....pop on over to her blog she really does fantastic creations!!!

Well I think thats it, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has sent me emails asking how I am its meant a lot, it truly has my friends. I'm still on catching up emailing you back but I will email you all back lol.
