A very warm welcome to my blog, which is mostly about card-making, a bit about work and family, and a few odds and ends. I am fairly new to this blogging lark, so please bear with me if I make some glaring errors.

I'll be delighted if you would like to become a follower, so please leave me details of your blog, as I'd love to visit.

congratulations card for my daughter

I used the A Gem of a Challenge inspiration picture and the  LOTV challenge sketch to make this card.
Just love the pink, green and burgundy colour combo for the Pink Gem Designs challenge this month - it's really one of my favourites. The sketch, which is just a beautiful layout, is by the ultra talented Bev, for the Lili of the Valley.
The image is by Magnolia of course, from Craftsulove and I really love this little cutie: she's coloured with copic markers from Wendy at Stamps and Memories, who also supplied the nesties.  The paper is Papermania Henbury Lane, which has to be one of my new favourites, with coredination cardstock from A Maze of Memories, who have the most enormous selection of plain cardstock ever!  The little sentiment, the larger flowers, ribbon, gems and leaves are from Hobbycraft, with the little roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, with stardust Stickles providing the glitter.

Thank you very much for visiting my blog, and for any comments you would like to leave.  xx Jill
