Hey! what's new at CCT

The new theme at Cute Card Thursday is Hey! what's new .. .. interpret as you like.  Our challenge is being sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts, please stop by the CCT blog to read all about the prize and see what the rest of the DT have created.

For my DT card I used a new Wee Stamps digi image called Jillian that Sylvia Zett gave away as a freebie on her blog just before Christmas.  I've managed to print her off and colour with my Copic pens.

Here is my card:

I've taken one of the 7" square cards I recently got and paper from my stash - no idea who made it as it's a single 12x12 sheet I picked up at a craft store years ago.  I've inked the edges of the mat card layer and paper with soft pink chalk ink, and also the die cut image and mat too.  Then it was lace, pearls and die cuts to finish things off.  I kept it quite simple, and left off a text as I'm not sure what occasion it will be used for yet.  The die cuts are all Marianne Design - these ones:

Creative Inspirations challenge is for flowers, so I can enter my card with them.

Short and sweet from me tonight as it's been a tiring day.  Izzy is all smooth and sleek from the doggy groomers, but feeling the cold especially as we are getting stormy hail showers!  Either we stay indoors or I'll have to buy him a warm rain coat!  I risked visiting Mum and didn't cough too badly, she is very down in the dumps but cheered up chatting to me.  Unfortunately her short term memory is virtually non-existent so I have to keep repeating conversations over and over, and she is not too good physically although is brighter now that her iron levels are back up.  There is going to be a meeting next Tuesday afternoon with family and health careers to decide what and where is best for her - the family think she will do better back home in familiar surroundings, but we will need support from the community doctors, nurses and careers.  We will have to wait and see .. ..
