My girls are back to school today, so I can finally get back into a routine and post on my blog a lot more often :) Liam goes back tomorrow, but hes no trouble. Hes a typical teenage boy and lays in his bed all day!! lol (sorry my apostrophe button on my keyboard is broken, so just pretend there is apostrophes where there should be! lol)

So today I am sharing a card that I made for this weeks challenge at Digital Tuesday where we have a sketch made my Maya to follow.

Our sponsor this week is Stitch Stamps who is giving away a $10 gift voucher to spend on anything from  3 of their designers, Stitchy Stamps,. Floppy Latte Designs and Barbara Jensen, who the design team also got use images from.

Sorry about the dull pics!
 The image I used is called "Yo" and is by Barbara Jensen for Stitchy Stamps. You can find it here.
She has been coloured with a mix of Copics and Promarkers.
Not sure what make the striped paper is, but the other one is by Websters Pages (love their papers :))
In keeping with the sketch, I used a Tim Holz ticket, but I only had one left which said "dream" on it and it didnt really go with the card, so I cut out a sentiment from a sheet I found in my stash (sorry no idea where it came from) and stuck that on top.
Also used some lace, ribbon, ribbon slider, a Prima flower (havent used these in ages!!) which I added a charm thing on top of. It is not a spacer even though it looks like one. It has a little hoop at the top but I just snippet it off :)

You can just about see here that I added some stardust stickles around the edges of the leaves, also on the flower, ticket and around the edges of the image. Oh and I also used some glittery cardstock to mat with.

And some gorgeous sheer applique leaves from Little Snippets. I love these leaves! They are so pretty and make a nice change to paper/card die cut or punched leaves. I think these were my last ones, so will need to go stock up. Ger has loads of lovely "snippets" in her Etsy store, including the prettiest embroidered butterflies and flowers (she also does some crotchet ones) and one of my personal favourites from her store is the  Venice lace style scrapbook/card corners (you got to check them out, because they are so pretty) loads of different embroidered embellies, ribbon, pins and I just noticed while browsing the store that she has added a Christmas fabric selection pack which also includes a bonus embellishment kit (I love the snowflakes!), which I want....no need!! lol
If you have never been over to the Little Snippets Etsy store, you really have to pop over and have a peek :)

Hope some of you will join in with the challenge this week.
I am still struggling with my numb hands (both are numb now, except my thumb and first finger on my right hand which means I can still hold a marker and colour......just lol :) So sorry if I havent left you a comment lately. I have been vising blogs, but it takes forever for me to type so I havent left much comments these past few weeks (this post has taken me ages to write!! lol), but as soon as my hands are back to normal (hopefully sometime soon!), I will be back commenting as much as I can :)

Thanks so much for stopping by
