dont you just love a freebie...

Good morning everyone thank you all for your kind get well thoughts, my headache has eased and I'm just left with that hangover feeling, which is not very fair considering I don't drink (well not often anyway), now you expect the fuzzy head and feeling when you have had the best part of a bottle of wine, or one to many cocktails but not just from a headache lol...I felt loads better yesterday afternoon and managed a few cards too...I paint at my desk but for cutting and making card I always do that one the floor, daft isn't it, I have a sofa, office chair and loads of desk space but I love kneeling on the floor to craft, the thing is you need to be tidy to craft on the floor as me kneeling on a pair of my teeny curved scissors can tell you...ouch...see I knew that curve in them was for something I just didn't realise it was to stick in my knee lol...anyway onto my card today, the fabulously talented Victoria Case was offering this freebie on Facebook, isn't she just stunning...of course I had to yell yes please didn't I, I couldn't pass up the chance to colour her...I used distress inks and added just a few sparkles, well she has wings so you know the rule...the amazing papers are from the Kaisercraft Blea and Ivy 6.5x6.5 paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, lush soft colours isn't it, the quote is Shakespeare and I typed it on my laptop, that's one of the brill things about digis being able to add things isn't it...I finished with a lush ribbon bow, Prima grey lace and a metal flower...the lush sketch is from the Ribbon Carousel challenge and the Deep Ocean challenge...I feel in the need of some retail therapy today, I might even buy myself an early birthday present, so a mooch in town is on the cards for today...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

WOW, I love the card and the image is absolutely perfect. I'd so very much love to get a copy of it. I 'googled' Victoria Case, but didn't come up with anything. I don't 'google' very well. LOL!!! Could you please give me a contact for Victoria; I'd be more than happy to buy one if necessary.
