Home again =]

Hi everybody

I'm home from LA and feeling a tad jetlagged! The travel home took so long - we had to transfer in London and had a really long wait time there, and I'd run out of my normal painkillers in LA, so I had to use different over-the-counter useless ones and they made me feel so ill - turns out I'm allergic to them too, now my hands and mouth are covered in blisters from them :-( other than that, we had an amazing time :) 

Here's a picture of the crafty goodies I bought Stateside, taken with the camera I bought! Excuse the quality of the pic, still getting used to my beautiful new camera :)
It was a major operation trying to fit a Cuttlebug in my suitcase home lol, but for $50 (±£31/€38) I couldn't refuse it. 

Anyway, here's a card I made a while back but never blogged (my mojo must've taken a different flight home, because it's not back yet.) 

The sentiment and number I printed out myself, the image and papers are from Lili of the Valley, the ribbon, flowers, gems and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the charm is from Ribbon Girl and the flourish is a Cheery Lynn one. 

A closeup of the image, coloured with Promarkers, I put Glossy Accents and Stickles on there too.

My flowers, also covered in Stickles.

A closeup of the bow and charm.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking :)
