Life returning to normality and of course a card :-)

Well Hello out there!  How is your weekend going?

I'm good and seem to be getting back to normal health ways :-)  Sleeping better and feeling like I can achieve so much this month.  So lets see how we go eh :-)

Emily loved her birthday card and had a lovely birthday present at school, she was presented with an Honour Roll certificate for the first half of the school year :-)  She was so pleased with herself and we are very proud.

Shannon's exams for the end of the first semester went really well (she says) and we get the results and report card the end of this week (14th Feb), I think she will do well.  Also, she is in the process of selecting her courses for next year, can't believe she will be in Grade 11 this September!

Andy is also coming home this coming Friday for the long Family Day weekend and will take the girls to Winterlude here in Ottawa - so hope to have some photos to share with you of that the following week.

Anyways, enough of my waffle!  I do have a card to share with you today, the third card in my oriental series.

Oh, you want to see the full card, silly me !  Don't you just love that sentiment though!

Showing off those lotus blossoms again :-)  I love the colours on this card and this sweet image.

Once again all the elements for the card are from the fabulous Polkadoodles CD, Dollie Daydream Goes East.  All the pieces were cut using my Silhouette Cameo, and I digitally paper pieced her outfit, using the papers of the CD.  The lanterns and the butterfly are pre-coloured images on the CD.

After cutting out the image, all I had to do was then colour her hair and skin with pencils, wonderful and quick.

I popped up the image, to give it a little more depth and I love those lanterns!

For the inside I used the same layers as the front and once again the scroll for the sentiment panel.

Just wonderful - so enjoying this fabulous collection.  Hope you will pop back soon, for the fourth card in this collection.  Working on a box too :-)
