and put it in your pocket, never let it fade away.
Great song that one - been going round in my head (and probably yours now) since I started making this card this morning. But enough singing from me, I'm scaring the cats!!
Well hello blogworld
Want an update on little miss boss? OK she was in bed for 7pm last night, but then spent from 1am to 3am awake, on and off, in our bed - in her bed - then a trip to the bathroom - then standing in the hallway once I'd put her back to bed again, and so on. Oh it took me back to when she was little! She's never been what you could call a good sleeper, but last night was a doozy! At one point, just before I did get her to go to sleep (at 3am) she is sitting up in bed saying that as daddy has gone downstairs (he ended up sleeping on the sofa) she wants to go down too and play as 'my body just isn't tired mummy'!
Needless to say I was tired today, hubby was tired and she was in fine fettle! I should've been going swimming this afternoon - part of a new trying to get rid of some of this fat routine - but was so pooped I feel asleep on the sofa! Luckily Peter was awake and went and picked her up for me!!
Anyhows, enough of my waffle and onto card:
Only the one picture as I thought I made a good job for once of taking the photo!! The only problem with it is that I used my Prisma pencils to try and get a good colour match for the papers - as I couldn't think what colour Promakers to use, hmmmm didn't get that one right!
It's one of the things I struggle with the most - colour matching. I'm not colour blind, but I certainly couldn't name you colours or shades and sometimes I get in a right pickle trying to colour match - there that's my moan for the day!
Pollycraft stamp: Sharing Sherbet - Catch A Falling Star; coloured with a little bit with my Promarkers but mostly Prisma pencils: Sherbet Words for the sentiment.
I inked the edge of the die-cut as otherwise I felt it got lost a bit.
Stickles on the stars and flowers.
First Edition paper pad - Isabelle
Memory Box die - Valerian Flourish
Shapeabilities - Fancy Tags for the greeting
Flowers and pins from my stuff.
So there you go, I'm still not sure about whether the one paper is too close in colour to the other - does it get lost a bit? That's what I think, anyway.
Hope everyone else is well, back soon,
