Girly...


 Good afternoon,  hope you're enjoying a pleasant and relaxing Sunday. I've had a lazy day today, it's a bit windy for sitting in the garden although the sun IS shining, so it was a toss up between summer house and craft room- craft room won. I had every intention of making a Christmas card/s but this happened! Never mind, being the proud 'owner' of 4 granddaughters I can never have too many 'girly' cards, they like them for their friends birthdays. As you can see from the photo it's fairly CAS, digi image (so girly!) is from Polkadoodles as is the stamped sentiment. I coloured with my Copic markers and added some sparkle to her bodice with a sparkle pen, cut out with  a stitched edge die and matted onto DP. I stamped the sentiment, it all looked a bit bare so I added a little stencilling in the top left hand corner..... then sat on my hands to stop myself adding anything else! 

My daughter has just messaged me to say that my son in law, just back from a golfing holiday in Portugal, has Covid...again...along with 4 others from the golfing-party! He tested himself before visiting his grandmother who is in her late eighties- thank goodness he did. Anyway, take care out there-there's a lot of Covid about again just now....

Thanks for visiting

Chris

This is just so sweet and pretty and beautifully coloured Chris. Covid is definitely doing the rounds again and symptoms are pretty rough. My niece has just caught it for the third time and is aching all over. Hope your son-in-law doesn't get it bad.
