Dancing through Monday

What a beautiful day here in the south east of the UK yesterday, can you believe we ate lunch in the garden cos it was so warm in the sun. I also felt a lot better and spent some time in my craftroom.
It meant that I finally used this cute girl  from Mo called Georgia, she had be coloured now for ages and even though she looks like she has quite a few layers she was still a delight to do.
I've used the sketch from The Sketchy Challenge and the papers are Love and Bloom from My Minds Eye. I've used the EK success funky flowers and the do-craft tinky flower punch too. There is a memory box border hidden under all the layers and all fininshed with a peach ribbon that I had to distress because it wasn't orange enough.
I've had a couple of questions in my comments lately so here's the answers hopefully.
Do I colour my images underneath the layers.
Yes I do, if I'm colouring a pink jumper I make sure the pink jumper underneath is the same colour but I don't bother to colour shading. The reason for doing this is when the layer is slightly raised and may be slightly out you won't see white which would stand out.
Can you link to the sentiment one a Cup of Tea post.
I've been over to the website and I don't think its made anymore maybe you can e-mail them.
Are the corners on the Cup of Tea post are they a punch or a die.
They are a die from Quickutz and again I've checked around there doesn't seemed to be many people who sell this make and I wonder if they're are no more.


I've also been given this amazing award, I need to find out what the rules are but many thanks to the lovely
Amanda, Vicki and Sue for the award.

Hi Debby, gosh it feels like I've not been over to visit your blog for ages!

I'm still having trouble with my dashboard - so many people's blogs are missing from my updates, it's unbelievable!! I've had to un and re-follow a couple to see if I can get them back.

Anyway, enough waffling - been having a wander back through your blog and admiring your wonderful cards. All of 'em are just beautiful - love the paperbag and scrapbook pages as well.

Hope you have a great week.
