This little miss is called Wee Peggy and is available as a digi image from the Wee Stamps Store, or as a rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps, although she is currently OOS on the main store site but you might find her at Bunny Zoe's here in the UK. I've coloured her with my Copic pens to match the pretty digi papers from Nitwits Spring Whimsy Too collection - the peachy tones are E93 and E95.
And here is the card I made. I coloured a length of pink organza ribbon with E95 as well as a scrap of card with E93 & E95 so I could punch out the little flowers then backed them with a Marianne open flower. I've used a Martha Stewart punch to decorate the edges of my horizontal layers before finishing with the green swirls to tie in with the leaves in my image, little butterflies and peachy pink gems.
I've used just a few Marianne dies on this card: The swirls and open flowers are from set LR0 and the butterflies are from LR0
It seems that Mr Blogger has has an off day as I can only go back 12 hours on my blog roll, thankfully I keep a notebook and write down the challenges that might interest me .. .. and the ABC challenge with the letter G for going dotty fits with my card! At Moving Along With The Times it's only girls allowed, and the Papertake Weekly challenge is anything goes (with the option of using lemon, which I haven't).
I've been up and down a bit myself over the weekend, and feeling incredibly tired, so perhaps I've been trying to do too much too soon after the nasty virus that is knocking everyone for six finally cleared up. The internet played up, as usual, so I didn't get to do any blogging or visit anyone - lots of catching up to do now! Trouble is, on the DIY front we can't leave holes in walls or wires dangling especially as it's Mum's end that we have made a start on. Jason tells me that we will have to do the kitchen floor sooner rather than later as the underfloor heating controls will be in a little bit of wall that is included in this phase of the work .. .. so I have to go looking for tiles with him today. He is doing all the hard work - I'm just chief tea maker and queen of the dustpan and brush, mind you, I have been known to take a hammer and hit at the walls that are coming down - wow does that feel good!
