Still here!!

Hi peeps huge apologies for the lack of blogging and posts but you know how it is house, kids,house,kids you get the idea!! so won't bore you with the details.

It was made for my gorgeous friend Susan who's birthday it was and we just had to celebrate it by having a wee girlie night out.Can't beat food, wine and gossip hee hee.

This was not the card I had running around my head no, it had a bear image, an oval and it had pink papers so how did I end up with a fairy a square and the colours orange, pink and green?? Who knows as it's not my usual colour choice but kind of like it, a bit different reminds me of chocolate oranges mmmm chocolate might need to raid the cupboard hee hee. I thought I would try colouring my image using different shades of the same colour and I was really pleased with the results unfortunately the camera doesn't show it too well.

The challenges I will be entering is are as follows

Lili of the Valley- Fab sketch
Passion for Promarkers- Fantasy/mystical
ABC Challenge- U for unused (my papers)
A Spoonfull of Sugar-Cute and curly
Pollycraft-Summer blooms

Stamp- LOTV thanks Susie
embellishments- stash
ribbon- From my fab buddy Mel
sentiment- Hanglar
c/s- The papermill
Dp's- Don't know possibly given to me by Susie a while back
PM's- fushia pink,mulberry, apple,meadow green, buttercup,blush,soft peach ,oatmeal and mango

I have been asked to make another christening card which I am hoping to do Friday night but that will depend if I have recovered from my first zumba lesson thursday night!!1
