Music and Bluebells

Good morning all you wet bloggers!!  And a big welcome and thank you to my new followers I'm thrilled that you have joined me!  I am scheduling this post in case I have a lie in in the morning hehe!  I went to a fashion show last night with my sister and it was lovely to see all the summer clothes can't imagine ever wearing any in this weather but a girl can dream can't she??

Anyway for today's post I have followed another sketch and also a photo inspiration:


I really love these Paper Shelter images they are so cute and lovely to colour too.  I have coloured this sweetie with Copics and Prisma Pencils and added Glamour Dust.  The papers are all Nitwits from the Possibilities Collection - Nitwits are having a sale this Friday and Saturday with 32.5% off everything so don't forget to check it out.  The sentiment is a Hero Arts wooden one I've had yonks.  I have done a fair bit of wet embossing too: - the hearts has been stamped with a Lili of the Valley music stamp and then embossed with White Seafoam EP, metal corner embellishment has been embossed using WOW Sparkling Snow EP and the lyre charm has been embossed using lilac EP.  I have used a Nellie Snellen die for the heart and Spellbinders for the sentiment banner.   The ribbon is from my stash although I think it came on a present and I snaffled it as you do!  I have followed the sketch at Papertake Weekly and also followed the photo inspiration over at The Paper Shelter which is this:

that's so nice and cute, Susan! Love these soft colours that you have used too! Sun is shining here since yesterday... it was rainy and cold on thursday and beautiful on friday... and I prompt got a sunburn...that's the downside of being a redhead :o)
Have a wonderful weekend (although it's raining... at least you can stay in your craft room and all those who suffer from hayfever are happy over the rain...).
xxx, Alessandra
