Shades of Blue

Got here by the skin of my teeth lol  Had a relaxing trip back today although it was torrential rain from Stirling to Edinburgh and arrived home about 4pm. The second load is in the washing machine and the unpacking is done, mail is sorted and fridge is tidied out (two sons home alone!!!) so thought I just had time to print out the cards I'd designed whilst away............and do you think I could find where they were saved........a very BIG resounding NO is the answer to that. So I started again and here is what I ended up with:

Apologies for the photography and the size of the cards - they should be twice the size but the printer decided to have a mind of it's own.
The first is using a digi flourish from Daisie, sentiment is computer generated. Finished with a ribbon flower and some gems.
The second is a free digi image from Kwed which has been coloured with promarkers. Sentiment is computer generated in Santas Sleigh font.

I think I've come down off the ceiling now after finding out I was the June winner. Many thanks to everyone for all the lovely comments you take the time to leave me and all the hints and tips you give out so freely on your own blogs. I can see you've all been busy this week so hopefully I'll get around a few blogs this weekend to see what you've all been up to.
