Spent my evening making inserts and bagging cards to give to a blogging friend and DT colleague who, all being well, I'm going to meet tomorrow for the first time. Kym  is holidaying about 25 miles from where I live so we've arranged to meet for a blether and a cuppa tomorrow afternoon - we could be some time lol.
Made this one earlier:

Everything except the base card, flowers, leaves, buttons and pearls came out of my bit box. I printed the image (freebie from Whoopsi Daisy) months ago and I've coloured her with promarkers. Daisy backing paper is from Popcorn CD and the other is from DCWV Linen Closet stack.

Challenges entered:
I Love Promarkers - paper piercing ( either side of image)
Digi Doodle Shop - anything goes
Shelley's Image Blog - garden party
2 Cute Rubber Stamps - anything goes
Pixie Dust Studio - tag your it
