Hey everyone!

Today I'd like to show you a card I made this morning for dd's teacher. Only this week and next week left at school before we break up for the summer hols ... ooh can't wait!!!

I followed Mina's scrumptious sketch, which is this week's challenge over at Just Magnolia.

I thought "Tilda with Pencils" would be perfect for this card - I coloured her skin/face with Copic Ciaos and the rest of her with my Whispers:

Finally, I'm going to enter this card into the following 4 challenges:

1. Just Magnolia - Week 13: I have followed Mina's sketch.

2. Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 68 "Thank You Miss": Thank You card for dd's teacher.

3. Creative Inspirations - Challenge 16 "Gems and/or Pearls": My card has three orange pearls in the top LH corner!

4. Papertake Weekly - My Favourite Things: My favourite things have just got to be embellishments.. LOTS and LOTS of embellishments!! LOL! My card has pearls, spacers, brads, prima flowers, charm, ribbons, cord ... tee hee!!

Well, that's it from me for today folks! Thanks for dropping by my lil ole blog! And if you have any comments, I'd really love to hear them as they REALLY brighten my day!!

TTFN! Hugs, Sem xx
