Crafts & Me DT card - Petal Melody

Hello all my lovely friends how are you all today? Did you all have a nice weekend? Well my daughter is back at school today after being off for the last 2 weeks........hopefully she will cope well & they wont push her too hard especially physio.
Today I am showing you 'Petal Melody' by Lemon Shortbread which is exclusive to Crafts & Me only you can find her & her friends here.
Here is my version of her.....

As you can see the weather is beautiful up here along the coast so I took advantage & took the photo's outside. She is coloured with Copics.....unfortunately I dont have the colours used I kept them out so I would write the list down but then yesterday I sorted a new storage solution for my pens as I needed something to hold my Copics & my Promarkers & being mobile so accidently put the all the pens in order lol. I will put piccy's on my blog soon of my new pen storage altho its not a new concept.
Speaking of Promarkers Teresa has them in the store now so pop on over here to take a peek.

The bottom edge of the card I did myself I was playing over the weekend to give my cards a fancy edge lol. So the edge was done with a die & I even kept the hearts that were cut out cus you just never know when you could use them & I ended up using a few on here lol. They are inked up with Weathered Wood distress ink.


The papers are from a lovely friend, thank you again soooo much Marie mmwah. I dont know what sort they are & to be honest I did not want to use them they really are that pretty & it made me weep cutting them :0(
I did stroke them for a very long time tho & drooled somewhat to lol.
The inside is decorated to compliment the front. For the actual layout I followed a sketch.

Here she is in all her glory.........she is soooo pretty & an absolute dream to colour she will be used often because she is perfect for so many occasions I think. Altho I've barely used a stamp twice cus I have that many to ink up......I am trying my best to get through them so I am stopping myself from buying any more til all my existing ones are inked..........heaven help me lol.
Teresa has had new stock in so as well as some Promarkers she also has the new Kraftin Kimmie stamps as well. She will also be getting some new Sweet Pea stamps so you will want to keep your eyes open for them as well......I certainly will lol.
Remember the stamp I've shown here is exclusive to Crafts & Me only.
Pop over to the challenge blog & join in the fun there we are now a weekly challenge with prizes every week. Also for this week Teresa is celebrating so another person chosen by random will win 8 digi images.....yes 8 so why not pop along & join in after all you have to be in it to win it.
Well thats all from me I will leave you in peace now lol enjoy the rest of your day.
Thank you so much for stopping by I do love reading your comments they all make my day & really put a big smile on my face....hugs to each of you that come along.
Challenges I'm Entering......

What an adorable image.Perfect colouring, soooo beautiful.I can feel your pain cutting into those papers, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Love your fancy edge, time I started doing fancy edges..mmm...think I have an edge punch.Gorgeous work.
You asked me about my digis. I get them open the zip file then press ok, and they get sent somewhere and I spend the next 4 days looking for them.lol. I'm hopeless..I have no photo shop or programmes of any sort, they usually are found under 'Chrissy'file and then I can do nothing with them.They print out that size or very small.I have very basic computer skills.lol.Maybe it's time to download a programme.
