Guest Spot at the Crafty Bloggers Network

Afternoon Everyone, and another lovely one it is too.
Today I am lucky enough to have been invited to be the Celebrity Guest Blogger over at The Crafty Bloggers Network.
They sent me a list of questions to answer, like how long have I been crafting, what is your favourite product line etc. Why not pop over and see what I have said.
You will also pick up some great ideas from the other posts, and you might be inspired to enter their challenge this month which is Anything Goes. 
Each week they have a Monday Design Team Inspiration, a Wednesday Guest Blogger and a Friday Show and Tell Technique, so definitely something for everyone.
The card I decided to share for my sopt on the blog is actually one that I made for my friend Lorraine. She has probably been wondering why I haven't posted it yet, so I hope that this will explain my reasons.
Those of you that follow my blog will know that Lorraine like to set me a challenge but it is always one that I relish. This time it was a floral card for a lovely lady who likes blues.
I would say that I definitely rose to the challenge.
I like to make Easel cards for Lorraine as she likes her cards to stand out and Easels definitely do that don't you think!!
The greeting on the card is by Hobby Art, and I used one of the lovely Memory Box dies Swirly Tree that I purchased from Jenny. It works brilliantly under the flower, and who would guess that it was actually a tree!!
I added some ribbon, lace and a ribbon slider as well as Frantage Embossing powders on the Hero Arts Leafy Swirl which is a favourite stamp of mine to embellish my background papers with.
I added lots of tiny white dots and some stitching with a fine black pen.
I did a bit of decoupage with the floral image which is by Stampendous, and I added some glitter glue.
So don't forget to check out The Crafty Bloggers Network, and leave me a comment, I love to hear what people think of what I make.
