Ava's Lost Her Balloon

Hey guys,
long, long time no see :) Believe me I have wanted to craft but there's been so much going on! We've just finished two weeks school holidays and I have been crook nearly the entire time! Not a fun way to spend the holidays.... But, I'm on the mend now and I have some lovely new stash to play with :)
Oooh, and I have just purchased some more hehe... do you every have little shopping bursts where you just can't seem to stop and then you don't purchase anything for months? I do. Although my little bursts seem to come around a bit more often lately ;)

So, onto the card. I cut off her party balloon.. just didn't look right when I fussy cut her out. All the goodies are from my recent Simon Says Stamp purchase which I made because I'd won a voucher. I was a good girl and didn't spend too much, but have since placed another order!

I'm entering the following challenges:
Marker Pop - Oldies but Goldies (oldest markers... mine are the yellows that I won in a Blog Candy. My first Copics!!)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (& Celebrate!)
Saturated Canary - Office Supplies (My staples are in there somewhere..!)

Stamps- Saturated Canary 'AVA' & Simon Says Stamp 'Handwritten Sentiments'
Colouring - Copics: Skin: E00 E11 R20 Hair: E33,35,37 Greens: YG03,06 Yellows: Y00,02
Paper -Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6x6
DoodleBug Twine
Hero Arts Flowers
Kaisercraft Rhinestones

btw - the rhinestones are just the plain ones coloured with yellow marker. If you have purchased the entire colours of the rainbow in rhinestones and you have any kind of permanent coloured markers, you have wasted your money!! Just colour them with your pens!!

Thanks for stopping by.. oh, and I won some Unity Stamps from Marilyn, so thanks mate!! Look forward to having a play
