Busy, busy, busy

Hello blogworld

As always, when it's half-term, am very busy keeping missy entertained (and struggling with a cold, again!).

So this is going to be a quick post and then I'm heading off to bed as am off out all day tomorrow.  We are off to Skeg-vegas - soft play in the morning (altho by the time they get to nearly 5 is one of those climbing, sliding, ball pool things called soft play or is it something else?) lunch out and then 10 pin bowling in the afternoon.  Oh what a busy life I lead!!

So here is my card, made it last week for a monthly friendship swap on the Do-Crafts forum.  So, oh shock horror, another card made and sent!  Know it's arrived now, so can post it here:

Front shot of card:

Detail shot of image:
I used:
Tiddly Inks: Fairy Fae, hair and base colour I used my Promarkers and then wings, flowers and shading I used my Prisma pencils.
The papers are scraps from my box.
Paper string from my stuff.
Craftwork cards: card blank and sentiment

Hopefully will find time to post again before the weekend, but you never know!  Back to normal next week.


A challenge, or two:

Flutter By Wednesday : #190 - anything with wings

Digital Tuesday Challenge: #147 - use your stash

I used to love going to Skeggy - all my summer hols as a kid was there! :) We used to stay in Ingoldmells. Last time I went was about 10 years ago though, and it had changed so much!

Hope you had a fab time.

Wonderful card, so sweet, delicate and pretty :)

Gorgeous card Sarah - you've coloured her beautifully and I love the BG papers you've used. Hope you feel better with the cold, have had sinusitus on and off since November so I know how annoying it can be hugs Karen x
