Lili of the Valley - Annabel Texting

Good evening crafting peeps! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far.  

Must say how excited we are in this household that Wales have made it through to the quarter-finals of the Euro's.  However, I do feel that Northern Ireland were the better team today, their defence was awesome and my heart went out to the team and their fans when they scored an own goal.  I don't know what's come over me these past few weeks as I don't normally like football.  But I am so extremely proud of the Welsh team and the fans, waiting 58 years and doing tremendously well so far, Da Iawn boys!

 My son came back from Toulouse yesterday after spending one of the best weeks of his life thoroughly enjoying himself at the Wales v Russia match, (such a superb game!) and meeting football fans from different countries.  

Anyways,enough of football and  back to crafting.  I've coloured Annabel texting with Copics, then heat embossed the entire image with clear embossing powder.  The patterned papers are a mix of Stampin Up! and from a digi kit.  Martha Stewart butterfly punches. Sentiment tags. Prima paper flowers,  Dew Drops in the centre of the flowers and gems for embellishments.

Cute image, great coloring and such bright, cheery colors for your background. If it happens to be donated to SAS4Kids, it'll be going to a great cause.
