Hi there, I managed to get a card finished tonight, Yay, I seem too have so many projects half finished at the moment, not quite sure why. Still they'll get done eventually.
This is a new digi i found at The Emerald Faerie Garden they are so cute. I coloured it with copics, used Diamond Glaze on the wings, I'm not sure what the papers are I got them out of a sale bin at the NEC a few years ago now, I've nearly used them all, which is a pity cause there gorgeous, the flower is a woodware punch six layers held together with an old brad. The letters are rub ons from doodlebug.
Weve had quite an eventfull couple of days, the water main burst right outside our house, it looked like a river running past, at one point it was just a yard from our door, the fire brigade came and pumped out a few of our neighbours that was not quite as lucky as us and did get flooded, the pub down the road and the chip shop both got flooded aswell. They've managed to mend the pipes now and the road is open again, thank goodness.
