Fushcias - Thinking of You

Morning everyone, it's a wet and drizzly Monday here.  The gardens are loving it and I think I will have to order mulch so I can keep all the moisture in the ground.

Today, I have created a card using one of the beautiful Digital Images I won from Ruth over at Passion for Stamps.  I have printed it off onto watercolour paper and given it a quick spray of hairspray then coloured with my wonderful new Aquamarkers from Letraset.  It has bled a little in places so if anyone has any tips as to what I should do to stop this please let me know.  I am still enjoying the lovely colours.  So the layout for the card is the Sketchy Therapy Challenge from over at Stamping Vacation.  You have until 2nd September to enter this challenge.  I have used a Blue Edge Crafts white card, a layer of purple paper and then this wonderful patterned paper from a magazine giveaway.  Layers and strips of pink bazzill bling.  Finished with a 'Thinking of You' greeting printed on the computer.  This card will be jetsetting over to my friend in New Zealand...just to say Hi!.

I still have my giveaway planned.  Just waiting on some stickers as I would like to post a photo of them when I offer the keep checking in for my post. :-)
