Thanks Blogger - Under The Weather? - Charisma Cardz GDT

This is a re-post of this card, as the original was deleted due to Blogger Maintenance

Well, what a lot of pants and bobbins the last two days were, and now what a palava! :(

tut :) lol

This card was made as my second GDT project for Charisma Cardz this week, where the theme is 'under the weather'.  There are some great prizes and some fabulous inspiration from the DT, so well worth popping over and playing along if you have the time.

I used a Bugaboo digi-image from the 'Sunbonnets' collection, and they are all this cute!  I hand-stitched K&Co and Fizzy Moon papers, used Spellbinders and Marianne dies, and my favourite MS punch.

Now unfortunately, as the previous post was deleted - thanks again Blogger :(  I have lost all the lovely comments that were left, and as the downtime spread from last night through to most of today, I have been unable to visit back and I am gutted.  Sorry.

I think, though I am not sure, that I entered this card originally in the following competitions:

Moving Along with The Times - 2 B's - Blue and Bonnet
Crafts and Me - Punches
Papertake Weekly - Fancy a Punch
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking at my card, and good luck to everyone in these challenges,

Hi Alison, Love this card and such a clever sentiment with the theme of the card! The crystal droplets look great and very effective! I love your colouring of the image too, this has to be a an overall winner!
I'm in exactly the same position as you with blogger, Thurs post gone AWL, seems to be deleted and comps entered that I can't remember, debating whether to try and re-post :-( Hugs, Teresa xx

Hi Alison. Love your card. The soft colours and image are gorgeous and the little rain drops and sentiment are beautiful.
Sorry to hear you had lost this post, think I had managed to comment on it before Blogger went on the blink. Took me ages to load a photograph the day before. You don't realise how much you miss blogland until you can't access it properly. Donna

Delphine said...

Paula said...

Love the gem raindrops & the soft colours plus multiple layering of the dies for the image panel. I'm all at sea with Blogger. I particularly like the way those lacey edges of your mount for the sentiment echo the raindrop shapes. Nice touch that.
