Sweet Baby Girl

Evening everyone .... is it just me or has this week seemed sooooo long??!!

So after weeks of trying desperately to find my long lost mojo, i've taken some great advice from some of my lovely DT sista's and made something just for fun - not for an order, not for a DT and not for a family birthday ... and ... it worked!

I've had a lovely couple of hours this afternoon making not one but two cards (i'll save the other one until tomorrow)

So here's what I made:

I used the adorable "Butterfly Baby" by Krista Smith at Saturated Canary, i've had this image so long it was about time I used her.

I coloured her with my Promarkers  (it's been such a long time since I used my markers I had to go on the hunt for tutorials and came across some fantastic ones on You Tube by the Uber talented Kimberly Brown at Just - you should check out her channel her vids are amazing!

The papers are 1st Edition "Sweet Owl" this pad is filled with my most fave colour combo Pink and Brown and i've almost used it up :-(

I put everything together following a sketch from Flutter By Wednesday's

The sentiment was a freebie and I finished off with flowers from WOC and some pearls from my stash.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and I truly hope it means my mojo is here to stay ... for a while at least!
