Afternoon, Happy Jubilee Weekend! Are you partying the long weekend away? We were meant to but.... sure enough the kids are on holiday and its tipping it down! We did have a busy day yesterday, Amelia had a little show to do over in Stoke Poges with her dance school, it was lovely and we had some friends join us there too, it was a shame about the weather, and it turned into a very late night! 

I have to tell you its been a bit of a rubbish week, things have just happened one thing after another, unfortunately we had to have my mum and dads dog sent to heaven last Thursday, its hit us all a bit, she was 16 and will be missed so much.  I haven't even had the get up and go to have my pens out, so I'm sharing a card I made at the beginning of last week.  

Meet Hopeful from Wee Stamps,   I have to say that when I made this card I was hopeful that the week was going to get better not worse! 

I fell in love with her the moment I saw her, she has a longing look, The papers are form Prima Fairy Belle collection 6x6 stack that I purchased here.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, the pin and cheese cloth are all from my stash and the butterflies die is from here.  She was coloured using Copics,

Skin - E000, E00, E02, R20
Hair - Y21, YR12, YR14, E15, E18
Top and Flower - R22, R24
Trousers - B000, B00

I die cut the circle using Spellbinders Large Circles and the went round using my SU distress tool, I then used Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink pad around the edges.

Im so happy with how she turned out,  I just hope the bug comes back again soon, I have a fir bit to get on with, hope its just a glitch with the horrid weather! I would like to enter this card into the following challenges; 

Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - Add a Butterfly
Crafty Ann's - Flowers and Butterflies 

Well I hope you all have a fab jubilee weekend! Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon
