Oh no!!

Good morning blogworld,

Finally I'm slowly getting through my commenting - so you should see me popping up at some point soon on your blogs.  Taken me a long time though, hasn't it!!

Onto business - As today is Thursday and it's time for a new challenge over at MAWTT.  It's Team A's turn to provide the inspiration this week and the lovely Kelly is the hostess.  Kelly picked the theme of Pretty Pastels this week, ummm not something that I go to naturally, hence the 'oh no!' reaction!

Still I got there in the end and this is what I made:

Front shot:

Close up:

I used:

My Favorite Things - Birthday Balloon Jolinne
coloured with my Copics for the skin and Prismacolour pencils for the rest

Lili of the Valley - sentiment

La-La Land banner

Just a scrap from my box.

Anything else?
Just some string behind the balloons - I had a bit of a technical issue when cutting out!

Got a busy day today - going to get a cut and colour at the hairdressers this morning, taking SWMbO to her swimming lesson this evening.  Then we've got our first paying guests of the year in the holiday cottage on Friday - so got to get meself in cleaning mode and go tidy!

See you soon,


A challenge, or two:
