Girlie - MilkCoffee DT

And another good morning to you all!

First of all. Am I the only one who has had trouble with Blogger these past couple of days? It's taking a dozen refreshes or more to load my blog feed, and I have trouble reaching individual blogs too. It's driving me cuckoo!

Anyways, I'm here to let you all know about the new challenge over at MilkCoffee! The theme this fortnight is Girlie. Easy peasy, no?

For my DT card, I chose Tiffany playing violin and paired her with paper from a calender that came free with a cardmaking mag last year! It's soooo pretty, don't you think? (I'm a sucker for text and music score papers... The best way to get me to buy a paper pad is to include one or both of those!)

The flowers are of course WOC, and I added some lace, cheesecloth, pearls and an adorable violin charm. The image panel also has a touch of shabby pink Frantage, and some tattered rose ink around the edge (inked the edges of the paper with the same before distressing) And it's hard to tell, but her jewellery has of course received the Stickles treatment!

Now, before you rush off to join us with something girlie, please do go check out what the rest of the MilkCoffee DT have prepared for you. It's worth it!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Wags N Whiskers - Bingo (pink, die cuts, glitter)
The ABC Challenge - E is for Embellish (pearls, flowers, charm & lace just for starters, lol)
Sparkles monthly - Show us your new stash (The large pink roses are new, as is the digi and the charm)
Paper Sweeties - February

Love this card. Love the image, love the background, love the embellishments. I'm in love....With this card.

As you can see I have been having the same problems and more. Some one must have lost a huge wad of gum into the gears. Not surprised if bugger chokes even more with these storms. Be safe and blessings to you....NOT bugger.

Girly to the max, Sammy. So feminine and pretty. I love music score too it always looks incredible and of course it is perfect for your image. Great colouring and gorgeous flower clusters by the way and that violin charm is just too cute!!

I have also been having problems with Blogger. In the end I had to re-load Google Chrome and now everything seems to be working fine. I've probably jinxed it now :{ xx
