And another!

Hello blogworld

I've gone from not posting cards to posting one a day, it won't last I promise.  I've been super good today as in actual fact I've made two cards!  I'm posting this one today and will put the other up one day during the week when I don't get time to make anything.

So how are we blogland?   We are all well at our house, back in the swing of normal school routine - Emily is very happy!  I've got a treat tomorrow and so has she - I'm going out to meet my friends, we are going to be 'ladies who lunch' and Emily's latest club starts.  It's Gym club this time, hmmm wonder what they do with a group of 4 / 5 yr olds for gym?  Get them on treadmills, the weights or rowing machines!!  What a picture eh!!

So now that I've suitably numbed your brains with the waffle - here's the card!

Front shot:

Detail shot of image:

But no 'arty farty' side shot tonight - didn't feel there was enough depth to do one of those!

I used:

The Greeting Farm - Miss Anya collection (can't find them!  Does anyone know which set it was?) Coloured with my Promarkers.

Blonde Moments: Sugar Dumpling

Dies / punches:
Nestie - ovals for cutting and matting
Memory Box - Prim Poppy (got mine from My Crafty Heart here - great service!)
Heart - punch (not sure of the make, had it for years)

Lace from a boot fair that we went to recently - it was a bargain!
Pearls are from Kort & Godt at Joanna Sheen, but I couldn't find them on the website.  Hah and I glued them all on myself they are not sticky backed - blooming fiddly, awkward little blighters they were too!
Card blank - Craftwork Cards

I'm not entirely sure that I like it, and was just about to say it's not my normal style but then what is!  Don't think that you could look at one of my cards and say, yep that's Queen of Waffle Sarah!!!

Am off now, trying to catch up on my commenting before heading off to bed to rest well in anticipation of my exciting day tomorrow ;-) 


A challenge, or two:

Passion for Promarkers: Week 145 - Theme (pink, pearls and lace)

I love Promarkers: Challenge #113 - Let's go shopping

I haven't any of these sort of Anya's, well not yet Sarah - she is so gorgeous. I love the way you have coloured her, the colours and the embellishments are yummy - such an adorable card love it!!!
Being a rubber geek I checked the web and she is called 'Miss Anya Collection'. Guess what I want now? lol??? My rubber/clear stamp addiction will never ever be a UIU pledge. Enjoy your lunch out! hugs Karen x
