Hiyah peeps!!

I got some crafty time in over the last couple of days and this card is one I made for Papertake Weekly's challenge this week which is Fancy A Punch! 

I just loved the title of the challenge so I had to give it a go!!! and armed with my totally gorgeous new 'Did You Hear' image I got busy!! I still love the fact that I prefer to make a challenge card just for one challenge, then I can just really enjoy making it and not trying to think of plonking stuff on it just to match another challenge too- that would tax my teeny crafty brain too much!! lol ! I am such a slow crafter!!!

I felt like getting a bit messy too so I printed out my firendship defintion paper and distress inked it antique linen, then I screwed it up good and tight!! once I had opened it all up again  gave it a quick rub over with frayed burlap and I love how it came out. I teamed a bit of rafia in to match the colors up and made a couple of mats with some card that matched her boots and top.
I distressed the all the edges of my paper and my punched edge too.

Promarkers I used were....... Skin- blush and soft peach.Hair- sandstone, caramel and cocoa. Overalls and bird- denim blue, powder blue and pastel blue.

Oh and while I remember,  I printed out my image, coloured it in and stuck it on my challenge card....then Christy emailed to say she had changed the thumb on Lilli claire's right hand so if you do love her oodles and go to buy her, she has had a little cosmetic surgery and looks even more gorgeous than this one on my card now!!!

Right got to get me to work. I am feeling a little off colour today :(  so another cuppa is required in Lou land me thinks!!
Have a fabulous hump day peeps!!

Huge hugs Lou xxxx
