Good afternoon everyone!

Well I'm surprised I've managed to add a post today....... I seem to have very little time for cardmaking or blogging this week and I've so much to do! Luckily I remembered I hadn't uploaded a card I made a while back when I was giving away blog candy so I'm happy I have something to show today ;o)

I coloured the image very lightly using my finger and some sparkly chalks..... well it's different, lol! I just wanted to create something very subtle and pretty. The papers are Basic Grey and I edged the top of the card with a Martha Stewart punch. The hanging foliage is die cut and the gems and ruffled ribbon are from my stash. Finally I added a little bit of faux stitching to the edges.

Hmmmm, now for a challenge to enter........ I think this card fits in with the theme at Allsorts this week which is stitching. I thought I'd also enter the Raise The Bar Challenge which is all about 'Movies' this week and I've chosen Tinkerbelle The Movie as mine ;o) Finally I spotted that ABC Challenge are inviting us to use sparkle for their latest challenge and although mine is subtle, those chalks definitely have it!

So sorry I have been a bad blogger this week....... I am missing you all and will hopefully get back up to speed very soon!!!

Thanks for stopping by today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
