Getting there!

Hello blogworld,

Well at least it wasn't a week again between posts!  Am starting to get  back to normal, whatever normal is, so normal blogging service should be resumed shortly.

Not much to waffle about today, so will get straight on with the card, which is this one:

Front shot:

Close up of image:

The arty farty:
I used:
Digi stamp:
Pollycraft image (and sentiment) coloured with my Promarkers

echo park - A Boy's Life

Nestie square

Anything else?
Just a sticker - which I don't actually like but was stuck solid before I could take it off again!

And finally SHMbO made her own card!  We invariably turn up to parties with two cards - one I made and one she did.  At the moment she seems to be going through a stage of not decorating the outside, but putting everything inside!!  Her colourings' not bad though is it - she's managing to stay in the lines.  Of course, it's all done with my Pros - she sits next to me and barks out what colours she wants.  Woe betide me if I give her the wrong shade as well!!!


A challenge, or two:

Here come the boys: Challenge #43 - Sketch
Creative Creations Challenge: #1 - Anything Goes (new challenge - best of luck ladies!)
Inky Chicks: #1 - Anything Goes (again a new challenge and best of luck ladies!)

Hi Sarah
Had to smile reading your post, you and Emily sound like me and Katie, with both making a card for their friends and she too loves to do all the decorating inside.
Yours and Emily's card are fabulous, love your monster image and Emily's colouring is brilliant.
Hope you have a great weekend.
