I'm Back!

Hi All sorry been MIA, had such a busy Christmas and New Year that I'm only just getting back into the swing of things.  All my crafty bits had been packed away and I've been too lazy to get them out again  :-(  but had a couple of cards to make this week so they've been coming out in bits and bobs, soon won't be able to move again for all the boxes and bags!

I'm hoping to get down to Bonus Arena in Hull on Sunday there is a Ross Papercrafting show on down there and as I haven't bought any stash for a while I think it's about time I treated myself to something new!.....My new LOTV stamps I bought in the sale just before Christmas were a present for me! lol

Today's card is for a friend at work for her MIL.  She only just found out she collects Geisha ornaments and pictures so asked if I could do something along those lines.  As I didn't have time to order a stamp I had a look for a digi image and found the one I've used here also the little lanterns bought separately...details at the bottom of the post.  I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and think it's worked out really well.  Hope you like her!

This is the sketch
