Made it Monday #7 - Milking Time :-)

Hello. Happy Monday fellow crafters and bloggers :-)

Did you all have a good weekend?  We are getting ready for Shannon to leave on her exchange trip this Wednesday.  She is off to Spain :-)  She is getting quite excited now, only two more sleeps :-)

No Sneak Peek Sunday, yesterday cause, well, there wasn't anything to show you :-(  Never mind, back at it today.

I disappeared into the craft room this morning.  Needed to get a DT card made for Friday and then had a little time left to make todays card too.

When I first got into card making many moons ago, I used to do a lot of layered (decoupage/3D) cards.  But then life stepped in and we emigrated, and when I started back up with cards detailed layering seemed to not be done as much. However, I have really enjoyed doing these last lot of cards, it's fun deciding where to cut the layers etc.

Also, I wanted to clarify something.  Some people have left a compliment (thanks) saying how fabulous my colouring is - however, I do state in my posts that they have been pre-coloured (like todays) by Nikky, Polkadoodles, boss lady :-)

I go through different stages with colouring - sometimes I do a good one, other times they just end up in the bin LOL!

Anyhows, on to todays card.

I have used another fabulous pre-coloured digi from the new Work and Play 10 - Country Life.

I made a spring fold card again today.  Everything is from this wonderful new collection.

Aren't those little cats, adorable - they come as digis too - for you to colour if you wish.

I did a close up shot, to show the depth.

I inked all the edges of all the layers and then added some pearl dots to the butterfly and the flower in her hair.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leaving all your fabulous comments.  Once again, I am playing catch up on visiting your blogs, so will be around soon :-)
