China Girl

Good Morning Everyone, 
I'm sorry I've been a bad blogger over the last few days. My cold seamed to get worse and now the kids have come down with high temperatures and bad coughs!! I can't wait for half term, just a few days to chill out! 

I've used 'Aimi with Lantern' from Lili of the Valley for today's card. 
I've coloured her with promarkers and the background papers are from First Edition.
I've used a MB Cherry Blossom die, a Marianne Creatables fence die and a Cheery Lyn corner die.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
LOTV Ideas to Inspire - Name that Tune : David Bowie - China Girl
I'd also like to join in with Brenda's 5th Blogaversary celebrations - My favourite crafting items are my promarkers and my little cuttlebug! (not to mention Lili of the Valley andd Penny Black Stamps!! lol)

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today and for all your lovely comments and encouragement.
