Good afternoon bloggers. It's teaming with snow here so I have been wrapped up indoors and have taken the opportunity to do some much neglected crafting. It has been quite some time since my last post. The reason being is that my mum has been in hospital for the past 4 and a half weeks so between visits to the hospital and work I haven't had much time to spare. I am glad to say that we were able to bring mum home on Thursday. The hospital have arrange for home help for six weeks so hopefully with a little time she should be back to her old self.

Right on to my card. Let me know what you think because my mojo has been much lacking recently


I have decided to go with this really cute Mo image called Billie with Bear which I have coloured using my trusty Copic's. Dont you think that she is just so cute?. Like a twit though I got so carried away with colouring her that I had forgotten to choose my papers and then had to go delving around my paper box to look for some that would match! I think these work ok. They are my First Edition from the Love Letters pad. I am not sure if you can see but the chocolate background paper has tiny blue polka dots, though in this photo they look more green. 

I made my base from a sheet of kraft card and then set about seeing if I could use by Cricut Expression to cut all of my layers instead of using die's. All of the scalloped circles have been cut using elegant edges and so has the scalloped boarder. The beautiful banner is a die by La la land. Unfortunately I dont own this die it was kindly sent to me as a sample from Dies to Die for and as soon as they come back into stock I will be buying one!

Challenges I would like to enter
Alphabet Challenge - C for Coverted (I need that Lala land die)



Any way that's all from me and thanks for stopping by
Hugs
Jayne
