Fabulous Friday - Pink and Pretty

Hello everyone.

I hope that you have all had a most fabulous week.

Shannon is having a fabulous time in Spain, and is due home Sunday :-)  We have all missed her, even Jess the cat has been like a lost soul :-)

Haven't had much of a crafty week this week, hence the lack of posts.  But this weekend I hope to get back on track once again.

For today though, I have my bit of inspiration for the new Polkadoodles challenge that starts this week.  Our theme is Pink and Pretty.

I have used the new Work & Play 10 - Country Life Collection and once again a pre-coloured digi.

This one is called "Foxy Friend" and can be purchased as a single digi download too.  Talking of downloads and stuff, Polkadoodles has a new website (for the shop) up and running and you can now get instant downloads of digis, bundles and collections.  Why not go check it out - there is 15% off until Sunday to celebrate the new website! (clicking on the picture will take you to the shop)

So, on to my card for this week.

All the elements are from this wonderful Country Life  collection.  

I distressed all the edges of all the layers and then inked them with CTMH Sorbet. Of course I had to layer her up - she was perfect for this.

For the inside I added the same papers, a message panel and couldn't resist adding that adorable little fox too!

I added some Flourish with a Bling Rhinestones in wine, to the body of the butterfly.  Some ticket sentiments and Live, Love, Laugh banner - all from the collection.

As I said earlier - hope to be back on track this weekend.  So looking forward to having Shannon home, should be back by early evening Sunday :-)
