Hello there blogworld
So another absence from blogland, I'm beginning to doubt that I'll ever get back into posting on a regular basis. Just when I think I've got it nailed - life goes and throws a wobbly!
So where were we when last we met? I think I was off for a haircut, which I did and I'm not entirely sure about! You know how it looks lovely when you leave the hairdressers, then it takes a day or so to settle (and I don't know about you, but I can never get it looking like it did when I stepped out of the salon) then you make your mind up if you like it or not? Well at the moment it's settling and I'm not sure I like it! I will let you know the final verdict in a few days.
We've had daughter off school, again!, this time with a cold. I thought she would be well enough to go, but after a lot of tears and wails of 'I'm too poorly to go to school!', I gave in and let her have the day off. Poor thing did have (and still does) a cold, but not bad enough not to go I thought, but then who am I to know! I'm just muddling through this parenting malarky!
Friday evening was spent in total darkness in our house - we were in bed for 9.15 (and not for anything naughty!!) just because the blooming electrics decided to fuse. We ended up with one light for the whole house - no sockets, no other lights anywhere working. We don't have any street lights here (only the posh areas in town have those!) so it was pitch black outside and in - so off to bed we trotted. I didn't even have any internet connection - we've got a BT hub and without the phone, the hub don't work! How I survived the evening and morning I'll never know.
Yesterday and today have been quiet and I've finally got a chance to get a card made! Yay - I was starting to get withdrawal symptoms, but then I was finding it hard to get in the colouring groove and chucked quite a few images! I'm still not 100% happy with the colouring on this one, but I'm letting it go and posting for you all to make up your minds.
So, mega waffle over, here is card:
Detail shot of image:
Saturated Canary digi image: Let it rain - coloured with my Promarkers. I then swiped a Distress Ink pad around the edges and stamped with one of the Lili of the Valley additions corners in the same ink. Not tried this before, not sure how it's worked!
All papers are First Edition - Desert Blooms pad.
Pins and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts - I coloured the smaller flowers with my Promarkers to match the colours of the image and put a touch of stickles on the edges (again not sure it worked out!).
Card blank and sentiment: Craftwork Cards.
Hope you like and am off now to try and catch up with you all and my commenting duties!
Best wishes, hope you have all had a good weekend.
