Psst....Little Bit of Gossip....

 Ooh... now I bet you thought I was going to tell you some really juicy gossip? Lol - ah sorry no...  I have used an image from Funky Kits called 'Little Bit of Gossip', hence the title of my post!

I thought I would show you a card that I made for my lovely blogging friend Debs Birthday.

Image: Funky Kits - 'Little Bit of Gossip'
Paper: First Edition - 'Boho Chic'
Die: Memory Box - 'Corner Bow'
Flowers: Papermania
Brass Butterfly - Vintaj

I layered up with some Coffee coloured card and some Pearlised Mink card... and added some Sparkly Papermania Flowers to the Corner Bow! and a lovely brass charm by Vintaj.

I coloured her with Copics
 added lots of Stardust Stickles to the Flower and Wings...

Ah well... my new printer has arrived and is all set up... it is printing much better than my old one ever did and also takes my card blanks through it... so I'm very happy with it. I also have my new Magnetic Shim for eBosser... so all is well again in Craftland! :-))

The weather is very dull here in Manchester today but at least it's not raining. My daughter is in Llandudno today for the Victorian Extravaganza, so I'm hoping it stayed fine for the parade!

I have a few cards to finish off now that I have my printer up and working. Lemon Risotto for tea and then will relax later and watch The Crimson Field and might have some choccies!!

I hope you are all well and having a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend! Big hugs to those who are not feeling good... I hope you feel lots better very soon!
Love and hugs
Take Care
