Welcome to another challenge from Basic Grey and apologies for the lateness of my card which I will explain later in the post! We have an amazing sketch to work with this week created by the boss lady herself Martine and I loved working with it! I used papers from the Wisteria range and a stunning image sent to me a very long time ago by the lovely Gina....... sometimes when you're sent an image you just have to sit on it a while until the right day comes along. I have to say I was a bit worried about colouring her in but really enjoyed it in the end and I think the glitter (part of the candy I won from Kath) looks really pretty!
The girlies on the DT have produced stunning creations for you as always and would be so pleased to receive a visit on their individual blogs I'm sure ;o) And don't forget that if you enter the challenge you may be picked to go into this month's drawer for another amazing prize!
So, why was I late uploading my card today? Well I had hoped to post it this morning before going out but overslept, so then everything was the usual mad rush and there was no time. I took the kids all the way to Altrincham, just outside Manchester, as they were invited to an ice skating party. As I was driving them there anyway I thought I might as well have a skate......... big mistake....... I was RUBBISH!!! Took me twenty minutes just to do one lap and that was with both hands firmly gripping the side barrier the whole time, lol! That's the longest two hours I think I've experienced for a while!!! Then on the way back we got lost, arghhhhh!
Never mind, I'm home now and just about to have a nice soak in the bath to relieve my poor old feet........ there's a chicken in the oven and X-Factor and Strictly are on TV tonight, so all is good with the world really. Plus it's windy outside and the leaves are falling rapidly from the trees, my kind of weather I have to say when you're all cozy indoors!
Ingredients: Papers: Basic Grey Image: received in RAK Flat Backed Pearls: Quixotic Paperie Colouring: Polys and Koh Pencils Sentiment: K&Co
Have a lovely evening and don't forget to batten down those hatches if it's windy near you..... I love that expression, hee hee!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
