Now don't fall off your chairs!!!

I'm posting a card...I'm back to blogging. Just spent a couple of days, blog hopping and leaving some comments, wow...did I miss a lot, so many beautifull cards, so to all my blogging friends if I haven't visited you yet I'm on my way.

I have no idea where I got the image from, but I thought she was such a pretty lady so I could bling her up a bit, 8" square cream pearlised card, so it was quite a large one. Love these papers, been waiting to find an image to use with them, charms, ribbons,pearls etc from stash, used an ink pad on the flowers to distress them a bit and gave her a little feather in her hair.

Well there is a first time for everything...Joanne a blogging friend of mine has just started a new challenge blog over at ....Craft Your Days Away, I thought it was about time I entered a challenge....then thought well in for a penny...I may as well enter a couple, so I hope I'm eligible to enter it into these..and that I've linked it right
