The ABC Challenge - U is for Under the Weather

Good morning again my dears,  I'm back with my Dt card for 

This fortnight we have the letter   
U = Under The Weather
We would love to see your get well cards/projects.

I've chosen sweet Tilda with flowers from the Summer Memories collection.  I've coloured her with Derwent colour Soft skin tone pencils using sansodor oil.  My papers are part of a Candy that I won from the lovely Elaine and they are from Inkidoo Forever collection and are stunning. I will post a list of ingredients at the bottom of my post other wise we could be here all day. lol

Oh! but I must tell you that I made the large satin Flower from half inch ribbon and the little pearl embellishments I made from individual pearls and string pearls.  I caught a tutorial over on youtube.  I'm going to be making a lot more of them. So easy and economical to make.

Any way back our challenge.   As you can see from the banner below we have a wonderful sponsor in Craft & Create who carry an amazing array of crafting goodies in store.

Please pop over to Abc and take a peek at the wonderful creations my fellow Dt chums have made for you this week.

That's all from me just now but I wish you all a wonderful day ahead.
