Beautiful Evening Bags!

Hello Blogging Friends,  I do hope everyone is well and having fun in the sun. Early morning here was boiling and then the clouds arrived and it's been dull for most of the day, just the odd peek of sun at intervals, but temperature was certainly more comfortable.

Thank you all for your lovely comments, I know it takes time, but I do look forward to reading them and really appreciate your visit.

I've been having an IT day today.  I have finally managed to get myself a Watermark, from Digital Designs, which was very inexpensive, and worked out how to add it to the photos of my cards, using Picmonkey, which is a photo editing site which is free to use, I think it is really good and I am so pleased that Wendy (Confessions of a Papersniffer) put me on to it.  I have a very limited photo editing programme on my laptop, and Picmonkey does so much more.  So I feel quite clever.

This is just going to be a short post tonight, I've spent way too much time on the computer today, so here is my card, Warning!!! put sun specks on it's bright;
I've used one of the LOTV latest stamps and coloured with Prismacolour Pencils
SB Floral Ovals
Flowersoft Sentiment
Core'Dinations Card
Fizzy Moon Paper
Dovecraft Flowers and large butterfly from Princess Fairytale Range
Sizzix and Marianne Foliage dies
XCut Butterfly Punch
Hobby House pearls
Ribbon from my box
Glamour Dust and Star Dust

I think this is such a lovey stamp with these gorgeous evening bags, and I enjoyed colouring it. I used an 8x8 card and had to fill it, hence all the flowers, maybe I've overdone it a bit.
Anyway I wish to enter this card into;  http://joannasheenchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/citrus-colours_14.html   I is certainly very Citrus.

That's me for now, thanks for visiting I hope you like what you see.
Hugs Kate x

Hi Kate your new watermark looks fab! I love the card the citrus colours are just perfect for the lovely weather we are having! Have a wonderful day! Susan x

Hi Kate,
a very lovely citrus card. I love the image and design.
Good luck with the challenge.
Did you say you payed a lot for your watermark.
Because you can do your own for nothing, or at Pink Gems web site they are very reasonable.
I have 2 but never use them as I think we are trying to give others inspiration, and if you use a watermark they would not be able to use your ideas. All the big names very rarelly use a watermark, as they are giving you their inspiration. For example Sue Wilson you never see a watermark on her projects.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Oh this is stunning Kate, love the colours. Glad you got your watermark sorted and found PicMonkey easy to use, I use it all the time as my camera tends to under expose indoors, I find it really user friendly. xx
