Anyway, enough of my woes, it's Friday so it's time for a new challenge at Polka Doodles and this week is rather special as We're Hopping!
Emma Canning whose cute images are available in the Polka Doodles online shop, has given a really cute image, the challenge being to make a project with it and take part in our hop.
I printed the image out on to thick smooth cartridge paper and then coloured her with my treasured Aquamarkers. I die cut the image with a Papermania die and inked the edges with pink then added some pink pearls.
I covered my card blank with some green corded card from my stash and some very pretty floral paper. I then added a blossom border which I cut out to leave a narrow white border.
I finished off with a die cut, inked sentiment and a really sweet little bird. The paper and all elements are from the gorgeous new Cherry Blossom Lane CD.
You should have arrived here from Astrid's blog but if not just go back to the challenge blog where you'll find the full hop order listed.
Your next stop on the hop is the lovely
You have until 12 noon on Sunday 13 January to enter the challenge and complete the hop - don't forget you need to do both to be in with a chance of winning a prize.
Happy hopping and good luck!
