Sweet Dreams

At last I am able to share my card with you .. .. after browsing the blogger forum it seems that lots of folks are having the same problem as me trying to upload pictures.  I tried various 'solutions' until eventually I came across a post from someone called Katney who said to try switching to HTML version for my post .. .. and it worked! once you come back into the compose version you can see your picture and make it bigger or smaller as normal.

So, better late than never, this week the theme on Cute Card Thursday is Something New - new home, new job, new baby etc.  Our sponsor for the challenge is Nikki at Bunny Zoe's Crafts with a £10 gift certificate for our winner.  I have made a new baby card with a very old stamp from my collection, it was a naked rubber ebay purchase several years ago and I've no idea who it is by, but it's certainly a sweet image.  I've coloured with my Copics then cut out with one of my new Marianne dies.  The patterned papers are from my large digi stash that I am determined to shrink .. .. at least not having easy access to a printer at the moment means I shan't be adding to it!  I've added a doodle stitch edge to the base layer, and looking at it perhaps I should have added the stitching to the cicular blue layer behind the image, not that much of it is left on show .. .. needless to say my embellishements are cut with various Marianne dies then finished off with a pretty organza bow and blue pearl accents.

Marianne dies I used:
LR0235 to cut out image
LR0112 for large scallop doily and swirls with pearls
LR0111 for swirl without peals (bottom right)
LR0106 for daisies

The For Fun challenge is also for something new, and the Papertake Weekly challenge is an anything goes theme so I can link up with them too.

I'll eeek out my posts until I catch up with the days .. .. fingers crossed the solution works for the next one!
