Wee Peggy

At last I've got the printer working!  well I had it working the day we got it but then when the router died I couldn't get it to link up to the new one .. .. after a long, and no doubt expensive, phone call to Epson a nice man walked me through the hassle of re-loading all the software.  And hubby told me how to resize the pictures easily so I can print out my adorable Wee Stamps digis the size I want!

Here is Peggy, she is coloured with Copic pens and I gave her a sunny shadow to pic up the warm tones in the paper, although I'm not altogether sure I like it.  Here's the card:

It's a deliberately bright card as I've made it for Mum to send to one of her friends, and at nearly 90 years old, neither of them see pastel shades too well.  The bright pink card is SU! from my stash, the text is an old PB stamp and I've coloured some of the pearls a darker shade of pink with a Copic marker, the rest of the stuff is all Marianne Design, so here's the list:

paper from Rose Garden pack PK9102
Scallops vintage lace JU0907
pink die cut along bottom edge is the plainer die in set LR0300
flowers cut with Mulberry paper RB2219 from die set COL1323
skeleton leaves LR0156
little butterflies LR0261

There's quite a few challenges I can enter with this card, so here goes:  Stampin' For the Weekend are all for the girls as is A Creative Romance, Papertake Weekly are all so cute! At Craft Your Passion the theme is for pearls and lace, and Totally Gorjuss is also looking for lace.

I've had to clear all my craft stash away as my youngest son is arriving with the family tomorrow to stay for the weekend so we need the dining table for meals! Hopefully the weather will be kind as the grandsons are wanting to have a bbq on the beach - and I don't fancy that in the wind or rain!  Enjoy your weekend, and as it's a BH here in the UK on Monday, I'll not be around 'till later next week - catch up then!
