Can't believe the clocks have gone back today - the year is just disappearing so quickly. Hubby reminded me yesterday that Christmas is only a short time away - my response was don't tell me until November and he said that's next week!!! Arggghhhh!
I am sorry I've been a bad blogger this week. I've hardly visited any of you, so I will make serious efforts to remedy that either tonight or next week.
We ended a busy week with some friends of Emily's coming over on Friday. So there were three girls here of 5, 4 and 3 yrs and a tiny baby boy (who was very well behaved, hardly made a peep!). They had a lovely time, up until the afternoon!
The girls' mum and I were talking at the corner of the house, with Em and her friend playing round in the small garden over on the other side, when I heard screaming, it was the friend who had fallen into our pond! I haven't run that fast for years - didn't think I had it in me any more but, my god, I flew! I only looked away for seconds, after checking that I could see them both, then one of 'em had gone. Luckily it isn't too deep a pond and, with her friend being 5 already, she is tall enough to climb out again, but she was soaked and shocked. Got her in and cleaned her up, by the time we all calmed down I was in tears. Can't believe that happened when they were visiting at my house - I felt terrible! Her mum was fine, very calm and said no harm done - me I was a shivering wreck.
Right I think that is enough of my waffling, and I've done mega waffling today! So I'd best show you my card! I made this for a challenge, but I've missed it - again - so I'll post it and then go wander see if I can find a challenge to enter it into. Otherwise I'm just sharing with you all!
So here is card:
I'm actually quite pleased with this one - I coloured the image horribly with just my Promarkers, but then just as I was about to bin it, I thought of Vicky and Lisa and all the others of you who colour with Promarkers and Prismas, so I tried adding shading and depth with my Prismas - and hey presto!
Image is Tiddly Inks: Druscilla - coloured with Promarkers and Prisma pencils and a little bit of stickles glitter on the wings.
Paper: Prima Inc: Fairy Flora paper stack
Trim across the top is a Memory Box Die - Meridian Border
The word is made up from rub-on letters that I've had for ages.
There I think I've bored you all silly with my waffle, I'm off now to waffle away on your blogs!
See you soon,
Ah-ha! I've found a challenge, or two:
The Secret Crafter - Challenge #158; Spooky or Whimsical - I hope my card falls into whimsical?
