Live Life Glamorously

This card was made using a Digi's With Attitude image called Prom Tween. I'd had it coloured for ages and she just just begging to be put on a card. The base is from a Kanban card kit that my MIL bought me for a birthday present from QVC a couple of years ago. I never make the cards up as they are intended, just use bits and pieces as I fancy to make other cards. It has this lovely black and white damask pattern on the front and back panels so is a bit posh really for me :)

The image has been coloured with Promarkers and matted onto red cardstock scraps. The sentiment is a freebie from TLC Creations and I have really gone to town with the gems on the tiara and also on the sentiment.

Now if you love your sentiments, and you love your freebies please head on over to TLC to become a follower. Paulette is one of the most generous people in blogland with her freebies but she is going through a rough time at the moment as she doesn't get many thank you's. For instance on just one post nearly 700 people downloaded it but only 50 said thankyou. That is just bloody appalling behaviour !! It upsets me to know that she is being taken advantage of so badly so goodness only knows how low it makes her feel.

If you take freebies from any site, please spare a few moments to say thanks. You may not be able to do it every post, afterall we all have busy lives etc but it will get to a point where these lovely freebies will dry up because designers will get fed up of people who just click and run.

Card Size - DL (letter size) Printed card by Kanban
Paper - none....OMG withdrawal symptoms LOL
Sentiment - TLC Creations
Embellishments - Star and round gems
Tools - 3D Foam & Scissors, Promarkers

This is fabulous! :) I must, however, blink more the next time I try to read a brightly lit laptop in a dark have sworn it said "porn queen"!!! Ha ha ha. I'm bad, I know!

Thank you so much for stating the obvious! We as artists really do appreciate those who say "thank you" for the freebies we put out there...and I totally understand Paulette's frustration. In fact, I emailed with her about it yesterday!
