Wild Rose and Papermania Papers At Grimsby Crafts and Fabulous News

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Today I am showcasing one of the new Wild Rose Images and a Wild Rose Sentiment along with some more of those lovely Papermania papers from Grimsby Crafts.

However, I have had to hijack my own post to tell you my Fabulous news.  
After a really hard day at work I came home to loads of wonderful e mails, comments on today's HM card, but slotted in there quite quietly was an e mail from ..........................................
okay cannot hold you in suspense any longer
Krista, the uber talented artist of the 
Saturated Canary Images
if you remember this image
you might now know why I am so excited.  
I along with numerous other's left Krista a comment on images we would love her to draw
I was one of those lucky to be selected.
I cannot show you my image although it is just perfect, as the Design Team at
Saturated Canary Challenge Blog
are going to be showing you them soon.
But Krista said I could tell you all my news
but keep watching I am sure they will all be out soon
Thank you so much Krista, thrilled!!!!!!!!

Okay so back to the original task at hand, if you have not been in the Grimsby Crafts store for a while, make sure you either empty that piggy bank or take your flexi friend, as there are so many new things in the store that it is so hard to leave empty handed. 

Everything on this card can be purchased within The Grimsby Crafts Store

So here is what I came out with
The base layer is some pale blue card stock and this is also the contrast. The pearls have been coloured with copics, and the image plate and sentiment has been edged with Tim Holtz shattered glass.  

The image has been coloured in copics, isn't he so cute and the balloons have a layer of glossy accents on them, so they shine :)
I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for the lovely and inspirational comments you leave, which allows me to hop on over in return to see your own lovely work.

I would like to remind you all that my 800 follower candy is now running and can be entered here

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Creative Mondays - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Anything Goes (thank you ladies for my selection last week)
