Good Luck Jemima

I've known Jemima since she was a baby, a few years younger than my own girls. And yes....she did have a Jemima Puddleduck, duck and Beatrix Potter pictures on her bedroom wall, and I did have an unopened freebie packet of Beatrix Potter Card Toppers from a Crafty Magazine just begging to be opened ~ use me use me use me!!!~ I could hear them squeaking, used this little image instead. I'm not sure who she is (a Tilda friend?) as she was a forum swap, but I think she's cute. And, I at last (very bravely) cut into one of my very first buys. K & Co 'Purple Butterfly Flat Paper', so it says on the back, but I think it looks more blue.
Because we arrived home quite late yesterday after chasing the yellow clad T shirted bike riders, I hadn't had a chance to make this card, so 'pottered' (bad pun) about until the early hours trying to get it finished. A Good Luck Card. You may've seen her. (Who? Jemima. When? Sundays, just for a few minutes)...But I don't want to tempt fate. She has an interview coming up. A very important one. Life changing I should think..So fingers crossed! Sssh! I'm whispering this, as I don't want to say too much in case it all goes pear shaped.. or worse...banana!
The flowers and leaves were punched out using Woodware punches, and that silver swirl down in the right hand corner is called Glitterations, by Anita's. I got them from Trago Mills for 79p when we were down in Cornwall, but in most places they're about £1.25. Wish I'd bought more packets now! I think the pearl brads were Papermania. I coloured the little girl in with a blue-Prussian ProMarker pen and a water brush. The pink leaves are that linen look Bazzill (Basil?) card but the pink on the flowers was some scraps of Pink Petticoat (I throw nothing out!) There's also some micro glitter on her wings and heart, but, at last my Quickie Glue Pen has run out (I've still got it, hoping it might magically refill hasn't) and instead, silly me, thought I'd bought a different make of glue pen only to suddenly discover, as it squirted out all over that little heart and her wings that it wasn't a glue pen at all but a white correction pen! Thought it was a bit well, no one'll know if I don't tell them!!
Right!! That's enough rabbiting! We have some more followers!!! Five more! We really must have a party!!! ((I'm right on that Rose!!...what film is that line from??? Hmm??) I may have to pop back later to put in links. So, a big thank you (((wave))) for joining Spyder's Corner goes to Rita. who not only has some lovely cards but boxes and little handbags too! We all 'know' Susie Sugar from her blogs and forum activities! A very busy crafty lady with a fantastic Challenge blog , a Crafting Blog a Die Cut Blog and a shop! So loads of things going on! Pop over and say hi! Then we have Elfie with a mixture of cards, ATC's, door hangings, and boxed cards for weddings and then (((Hello)) to Victorianangels... I'll have to put a link in later, as there isn't one at the moment! Or there is, but I can't find it! Then say (((Hi)) to Sweetdesigns who makes cards as well as Jewellery and also has a shop, so pop over and have a look! That's all for tonight, (It's about two in the morning) I'll be back tomorrow, or later today, if I'm not abducted by aliens or locked up somewhere away from sharp things, to correct all the smelling mistakes and to make sure the links work...
Sweet Dreams everyone!!
