Ta Da

I was reminded today that I have been neglecting this blog.  It's not like I have been doing nothing, I've started digital scrapbooking, we had our baby's dedication, Evie started school just to name some of what's been going on, lol!!!   So anyway I thought I better post and send out a little love, are you feeling it????

I am loving the Presto Patterns Specialty DSP from the Summer Mini.  I love that you can customise with any colour combo and use a whole bunch of different techniques to achieve a unique piece of patterned paper quickly and easily.

I had a friend ask me last week if I could make a special thank you card for her mum who had made her a lovely hand made gift.  She said her mum likes mauve's and pink's and she wanted something with a bit of dimension.

I discovered it's harder to create something that's been commissioned but I think I did OK.  I don't have alot of purple ink or paper but was really happy with the result ( I might even have to case my own card and make another one) and this is my very first easel card.
Here it is in all it's easel glory!!
Not sure how well you can see but I sponged some shimmer paint over the Presto Patterns DSP and also on the butterflies.
 Here it is when it's closed.
