Introducing Kai

NO post from me yesterday as I was busy in the morning and out in the afternoon. Then Angie added my lovely new blog header and background to my blog. I gave her the sort of things I like, including purple of course, and didn't she come up withe the most fabulous design. If you would like one designed for you click on her banner on my sidebar. The only problem was it took off all my customised settings so it took me a while to get the fonts etc looking like I wanted them again. The only thing I can't work out is how to remove the box around my blog. I fiddled around for ages and ended up with no time to make a card yesterday.

So my card today features Kai, a new digi available tomorrow from Crafty Sentiments Designs. Every Friday there will be 2 new digis released and there is also a chance to win a digi by placing your card made using a Crafty Sentiments image onto their Facebook page. I love blue but never seem to have many blue papers. I also wanted stripes to match her top and found these papers in my Christmas paper stack. They are Papermania Winter's Tale. Must remember that in future as so many Christmas papers are spots and stripes. I used my MS double loop border punch, one I don't use enough. I added some striped ribbon, Sizzix die cut corners, Wild Orchid flowers, punched MS fern leaves, pearls and a flower charm.
