Well it's partly true!!

Good afternoon blogworld,

Am still behind with the housework - but I'm also still making cards.  And I know which I'd rather be doing!!!

So here's my latest card, I totally agree with the sentiment but I don't look like the image!  Maybe I did once, but now not!  Wish I did, but (unfortunately) I found I like food and I don't like exercise :-)

The Front Slightly Skew-wiffy shot:

Her Close Up:

I used:

Digi Stamp:
All Dressed Up - Love to shop
coloured with Copics and Pink Grey Graph'Its

Memory Box: Border
Die-namics: banner

First Editions - New Leaf

Anything else?

That's all folks.


A challenge, or two:

Sketch Saturday: Week #296

All Dressed Up Challenges: #8 - Love is in the Air.  Sorry I only make one Valentines (and I've already made it) - so I hope a love of shopping is OK?

Allsorts Challenge: Week 245 - Colours beginning with 'b' - Blue (her jacket & bag and a brad) Black - the matting card.

CMC Copic Challenge: #86 - Girls just wanna have fun

Love that super stamp, Sarah and you've coloured her brilliantly! You must be getting to grips with your Copics then?! Fab CAS design and love the black matting too!
I'm not avoiding housework, just getting the kids to do it!?! Rofl! Well I can't do much on my PC at the minute coz my tablet pen has decided to play silly beggars and I think my mouse has gone to sleep too! Did spend over 2 hours ironing this afternoon though, so I think that's my quota for the day! Hugs, Lisa x
