It's nearly crop time

Another busy day here but I managed to find time this evening to finish the second layout for crop this Saturday.  So again I used the Sakura Park papers from Kaisercraft.  I did add some chipboard letters and extra clear gems to finish this layout.
The finishing touches were inspired by the challenge at:
Tuesday Taggers - Diamonds are Forever - well there's lot of diamond style bling on this layout.

I'm loving this pocket card, I really enjoyed decorating the outside to match the inside.  It's funny where a trigger can take you:
Moxie Fab World - Tuesday Trigger - this trigger just had me set about making a totally girly project with a bit of red thrown in.

This outside of the pocket card and was inspired by the challenge at:
Chicken Soup - recipe #10 - those handbags had me searching through my stash for the handbag charm I knew I had somewhere and started this whole card off!

The inside was inspired by
ICS - sketch #83
Stamp with fun - sketch #76

She's a Penny Black stamp - evening glow and I used my Copic Ciaos to colour her:
Skin - E00, E21, RV10
Hair - Y21, YR31
Dress - R27, R29
Stool - C3, C5, C7
Gloves and shoes - 100
Pearls - Prima
Punch Martha Stewart
I used my very last scrap of paper to make this card and was inpsired by challenges at:
2 sketches 4 You - Kazan #61
One Stop Craft Challenge - fashion throughout the years

I found some 7 Gypsies texture rub-ons and added black velvet to it.  It's that piece on the right and was so easy and not messy to do.
The stamp is an old one that really belongs to my lovely friend Anna and I "coloured" it with my Copic Ciao's and glitter:
Skin - E00, E21, RV10
Hair - E08, E11
The message stamp is Papetrey Ink from Just the Ticket set.

Thanks to all those who've wished me a speedy recovery for my neck, it's much better today and I'm going to have a hot stone massage tomorrow, just to help it on the mend.
