Huge Apologies this was supposed to post at 12 noon but it ignored me!!

Good afternoon my fellow blogsters out there!  I would like to welcome my new followers, I hope you like my cards and stories (mainly of our cat called Blossom (aka Dirty Gertie) and her husband Donny (aka Don, ie when he gets his two bits chopped off).  Thank you all so much for following my little Planet on its journey through the crafty universe.

Now, before I show you my card I just wanted to tell you some good news, I have been invited to join the Crafty Calendar DT, I am so chuffed, I can't tell you how much.   This is a monthly challenge and I will explain more about it when I do my first post for them, hopefully next week.

Anyway onto my card for the One Stitch at a Time Challenge blog.  This week it was my turn to choose and I picked the 'Love in a Mist' digi by Delicious Doodles from the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.  I lurve this flower and would have them all over the garden if I could.  

This plant has a ferny foliage so I got my new Spritzer bottle, the one that works like an airbrush, and blew two different Copic greens onto my digi - I had masked the flowers and seed pod before I played though!!   I wanted to achieve a sort of wispy feel to the picture.  These seed pods are corkers aren't they - just like little green aliens!

I hope you like my card, thank you for any comments you may have left, I do enjoy reading them!  I might not make as many cards as some of you do - 'cos I take sooooo long to come up with my ideas  ......  then I change my mind - but I still love my blog and I enjoy my DT cards as well.  Thanks again for visiting me and following!

Hugs to you all, take care
