finally a card!

what's it been nearly a week with no cards?  Just waffle!!

Hello blogworld

Well finally she's only gorne and made a card I can hear you cry!!  Yes, I know, I know, nearly a whole week and no card, what's more this is the only card I've made this week!  What a week it's been, properly getting back into school routines, I've gone back to swimming & T'ai Chi and loads of housework.  Ah, and that tap!!

So stop the waffle Sarah and back to reason for post.  It's Saturday and that means we're in for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin and this week we're all being extremely charming - oh look how clever a play on words!  Sensibly now - we'd like to see a charm on your project, along with the stamping of course, please.

Our sponsors are: our monthly regular Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher

and this week the lovely Emerald Faeries

I had a dreadful time with this card, that charm just wasn't working whatever I did - so I gave up.

This is my card:

I used:

Sugar Nellie - Simply Sassy: Tease Me (which looks to be out of stock right now - oh dear!)
coloured with my Pro and Flexmarkers

Die-namics - Stacking Stars (blaming you here Faye!)

First Edition - Isabelle

Anything else?
Craftwork Cards - card blank and sentiment
Oh, and the charm (yuk, yukity, yuk) from my stuff.

There you go blogworld, hope you have a good weekend look forward to seeing your 'charming' entries in the challenge.


A challenge, or two:

The Sugar Bowl: Challenge 92 - Erika's Sketch

Polka Doodles: Week 38 - Inspired by a song title.  OK, I'm not sure if this properly applies or not, but Whigfield's Saturday Night (watch it here) - I know the sentiment is a birthday one, but the Sassy getting ready makes me think of the song and, more especially, the video - loved it!!!

Re the Neenah card - I can't colour on that at all! Oh, I did quite like it for prisma pencils though - you could try them on it just to use it up! Hugs, Lisa x
