It’s all about the Girls


Hi everyone, I hope that you are well and thank you for stopping to say ‘hi’.


We have a warm weekend here is Sydney but I love my weekend time.  I have caught up with some people I used to work with and just spent Saturday talking and laughing.


Sunday is time with my daughter and just getting ready for the week to come.


I love weekend’s like this – so I hope that yours wonderful too!


I also wanted to share with you my card for the new challenge at Come and Get It for this week.  Our theme for the the challenge is:


Make It Girly


We would love everyone to share the ‘girly’ project with us and be in the running to win some wonderful prizes.  We have two sponsors for this challenge, Lacy Sunshine and Limited Run.


I have used a Limited Run image called Molly.  To me this image yells ‘teenager’ but I loved it when I saw it.


The layout for my card has been inspired by the current sketch at Sketch n Stash.


The beautiful paper I have used is one of the items you can earn free with Sale-a-bration and I love the colours.  The paper is called Sweet Sorbet and I have used Crisp Cantaloupe card stock which compliments the paper.


I decided to create a square card today as I wanted to showed off the image and the sketch a little more.


The image is die cut with the SU Ovals Collection and the flowers/bling are from my stash.  I have also added some embossing using the retired SU Lacy Brocade embossing folder.


Here is my card:






At the moment I have only a few copic markers but the more I use them the more I want – like most crafty things  :)


So from my stash I have used the the following markers to colour the image:


Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11

Cheeks & Lips: R21

Eyes: B02

Hair: E000, E30, E33, E42

Jacket: BG0000, BG10, BG11

Shirt & Bow: Y0000, Y21, Y23

Shorts: B93, B95










I am very happy with my card and I just love the all the soft colours.


Here is the sketch:
