Keep in Touch

Hi there,

It's been another fast weekend and I haven't got half my 'to do' list done! Thankfully though, I did manage to finish this card, and if my wee girl sleeps this evening, I might even get some colouring done :)

My card today features 'Texting Abby', who is one of three new releases this month over at Whimsie Doodles. The layout is based on the clean sketch by Jen at Freshly Made Sketches. It's great to be able to play along again.

Here is my card.

I coloured the image in with my copics - believe it or not her hair was supposed to be blonde but I made a complete mess of it so had to go darker to salvage it!  I fussy cut her out and mounted it onto a tag. I had extended the length of the tag by adding some desert storm cardstock to the bottom and grounded the image with a scrap of blue designer paper.  To the card base I added some MFT chevron paper. I then adhered a smaller piece of white card which I had stamped with circle scribbles stamp and blue ink. I stamped the sentiment in rich cocoa ink and die-cut it out using a fishtail flag.

I would also like to play along with the following challenges:
Thanks so much for popping by,
