buttons and bows, its ok Im not going to sing...

Good morning everyone, how are you all...I hope your keeping well and are happy and warm...I'm still working away at the farmhouse so cant be here except for Mr Blogger's skills...I love technology and gadgets don't you...its usually the man in the house, but poor Phil has to get me to record TV for him so hes not exactly technologically gifted...I was sitting typing a few posts for this week and was thinking how much technology has come on even in my lifetime...if someone had told me at school that not only was it possible to show everyone your cards but that people would be posting work on the internet for people to look at worldwide I would have been gobsmacked...thank goodness for technology I say...right now onto my card for today which is for the Crafts and Me digi teams brand new challenge at Crafts and Me challenge and this week the theme is Buttons and Bows, I used this stunning Juniper digi from Crafts and Me for my card, coloured her with distress inks and added loads and loads and loads of glitter, I used a couple of Graphic45 papers for her, the fabulous seahorse one is called Life's a Beach and the scrolled brown is Enamored Embrace and finished with some buttons and loads of bows...right I will leave you in peace and have a lovely day...oh and when you have time pop on over to Crafts and Me challenge to have a look at the digi teams lush creations

Hi sweetie!
Your card is just soooo beautiful. I believe you must have the most gorgeous collection of papers, lol. I looove everyone of your cards. Not only because of your fab colouring but you do such a great job on the layout too. Wish i could colour with distress inks, lol. But i think i`ll stick with the things i can, hahaha. Fabulous job on this, hun. Hugs...mona

Not ever having been a mermaid I can't be sure but it looks most uncomfortable having one's tail in a knot!
