So Kawaii...

Good morning. Firstly I'd like to thank each and everyone of you who have taken the time to visit me and leave a comment or email since I've returned. You really have no idea how much it means to me! Secondly, I hope that those of you who follow me in the UK have escaped the storms and floods that have been battering us for the past few weeks. We've been really lucky here on the South Coast and escaped with nothing more than a few damaged fence panels. The only good thing to come out of the seemingly relentless rain and wind is that I've managed to squeeze in some sneaky craft sessions. The bad news is I'm still playing with very limited stash... (well apart from the new Graph'It Markers my lovely hubby bought me for Valentine's Day :D).

This card is aimed at those difficult to please teens! Hopefully it will be met with approval - but hey who knows??!! I think you'll be surprised to see that I've used the fantastic Dollie Daydream Goes East CD to create this card!! See not a fan in sight!

The image and sentiment have of course been coloured with my new markers and the ribbon was in my stash. I've then placed some washi tape across the papers before adding some sequin waste and paper flowers. The little skull and crossbones embellishment was made by taking the character image into paint and then selecting just that area and erasing the parts that I didn't require before re-sizing in a word document. I've then added some black glitter to the eyes, nose and mouth and then put Glossy Accents onto the bones.

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm hoping that I'll be back at somepoint in the next week with another project for you, but it will depend upon what is happening with the house.
