Take care your special to me

Hi guys, I'm full of a cold and about to go on hols soon  but I just so had to make a card using this gorgeous digi by Sylvia Zet called Daphne,
Isn't she adorable!!!!
I have used distress re-inkers to colour her, and added a hint of snowtex around the image too,
The gorgeous papers A Day In May are by Pion and were a lovely gift to me from the lovely Sandy at Live and love crafts, yes I got the whole set how lucky am I!!!!
I also couldn't resist another of the Maja design clocks peeking out from behind the seam binding also from LLC,
the awesome crochet doily was made by my lovely sis again thanks Ann I love it, I can't crochet for the life of me but Ann does it beautifully lol xx

Closer view, the sentiment strip came off one of the Pion  papers too

The sentiment at the bottom is a Stempelglede stamp from the Just a Note set, again Sandy has these in store now, I was so made up to see Stempelglede back in this country again so love these stamps,
The flowers are by sweet lilac and last week my hubby was good enough to run me to their shop, wow do they have some lovely flowers!!!!!!
I used the stems to make twirly twist effects too,
lace is from my stash as is the pearl string,
Pion papers a Day in May - Lady
" " - Borders
" " White Blossom
Maja Design Clocks -Vintage Autumn Basics - No XVI 
Stempelglede - Just a Note stamp set
 shabby white seam binding 

Magnolia-licious - Birthday

Happy Crafting,
Hugs Liz xx

Oh my Liz, she's beautiful! I coloured her tonight for a birthday card for my granddaughters little 5yr old friend and it's almost the same colours you have used - I've only just seen your post on FB but it's so spooky! Hugs Sandy xx

What a gorgeous card! Congrats on your special treat from Sandy (you lucky duck)! I really love both of the sentiments. Very nicely paired. I have a huge container of Snow-tex. Thanks for showing me that it doesn't just have to be used in December and January!

Thank you for joining the Birthday Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Good luck to you!

Hi Liz,
