Two Challenges....

I followed the sketch from Truly Scrumptious and the 'patchwork' theme at Daring Cardmakers with this card, adding the faux stitching to create the patchwork effect. The gorgeous Gorjuss Girl is coloured with Copics and all papers are Blonde Moments (they're actually from a Christmas collection, but the colours were just right and you wouldn't know!) I stamped the flowers onto the patterned paper and cut them out, raising some of them with foam pads and the sentiment is also a stamp.


I start chemotherapy tomorrow, so it depends what effect it has on me as to whether I'll be around blogland for the next couple of days. The last hurdle in the breast cancer battle!!! Oh, and I got two wigs today in case the hair disappears - one much like my own hair and a long glam one. I may just post some photos one of these days LOL.

Have a great evening xxx
