Confirmation

I'm soooo excited today... there is the first Semifinals of the Eurovision Song Contest and my friend Thea will be singing for MALTA !!!! Ten will be qualifying tonight and another ten on Thursday... I can't wait to see her :)) ..

hey...

.. are you from Europe ?? ...

Well you know what to do if you like Malta's song .. hint hint .. vote for us please

She is singing in the 11th place ..

Here's my card for today, and again I'm using one of Karen's digis. Today I decided to try something different and so instead of colouring her dress with my promarkers I filled it with the same background paper.. not paper piecing though. What I did was I turned the dress only to ALPHA in the GIMP program and then filled it with the paper which was a digi file as well! I think it came out ok :)



Here is the sketch that I followed.



and these are the challenges:

1 - Critter Sketch Challenge No 15 - THE SKETCH
2 - Karen's Doodles US Challenge No 12 - STITCHING

Thank you so much for looking. I've been a bit busy this week, sorry if I haven't been able to get back to everyone who have been leaving me such nice comments, I appreciate them all, but I'll be visiting surely sometime soon .. and to all my new followers, thank you for following me, welcome, I do hope you will enjoy visiting and come back often :)

I did make a set a year ago for my church.. it wasnt so great.. just really started crafting then, and knew nothing about all the fab challenges.

Wish your friend and Malta all the best !!
