Hi everyone thanks for popping over.A little while ago crafters companion had a blog hop and I was very lucky to win one of the new SWALK stamp sets and this is the one I won which is called'old Friends' it also comes with extra flowers and the most adorable sentiment which I haven't used on this card but I am sure it will pop up on many cards from time to time.I have coloured the image with promarkers but I am not very pleased with how her hair has turned out its just all wrong but I can live with it for now.The white matt has been embossed with a cuttlebug folder(sorry not sure what its called),Papers are from papermania,Punch is one of my favorite martha Stewart ones called heart Doily or Doily Heart lol,greeting is from Crafters companions Tom Kitten set,I have also used raspberry liquid pearls(I so need to practice with this stuff) and the flowers are from my stash.I also used circle nestabilities for the circle lol.I also Highlighted the greeting with a little glitter glue.
Also this picture was taken round Robs friends house and I really do think its about time someone told my gorgeous little Noo Noo that the World Cup is over lol.

I also wanted to share with you a picture of the prize I won on the Wild Orchid Challenge I am so excited about this one as I don't have any of their flowers mine usually come from the local Hobby Craft So these should arrive sometime this week and whats more there are lots of pink woohoo.

As you know (!) this is a real favourite of mine though I've not had a chance to use her just yet. She's ideal for making grass around so perhaps I'll have a go at that if I can get something sorted with the current chaos.
Well done with the Orchid Crafts, so so pleased with that.
Take care of yourself too.

I was smiling when I saw the dog photo! My fiance is from Sheffield and is a huge Manchester United fan so when the World Cup was being played, he was going crazy. What a beautiful card you made here! I love the little girl image.
