.... how are you all???  Just a quick post before I get settled for tonights viewing of life at Harrow School followed by Educating Yorkshire - complete contrasts to school life - lol.

Got a couple of cards made that I am going to enter into a couple of challenges.  The first is one for one of my best friends son who will be 13 in November, I know he was a fan of Dr Who so I am hoping he still is, as I have used a great free digi - I first saw it on Ellas designs blog and she had kindly posted the link to it here:

I have coloured the image with promarkers and added glossy accents to the light and the window.  It has been matted onto blue card and the dp is Amy Tangerine - again matted onto blue card the star was a freebie from a giveaway and I have added the numbers from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:

Passion for Promarkers - one for the boys

The next card is not made for anyone in particular - other than I wanted to practice my colouring and I liked the sketch  on the papertake weekly challenge:

The image is a lovely Saturated Canary one (and I have just realised I seem to have lost two of her images from my computer - I'm hoping hubby did a back up not so long ago and stored all my images and they will be on the memory stick :-( )  Anyhoo, back to the card I have coloured her with promarkers and then die cut her and distressed the edges.  The dp's were freebies from  a magazine ages ago and then with a bit of artistic licence I have added some ribbon and a little strawberry charm.

I would like to enter this into:

Papertake weekly: - sketch
Simon says stamp - anything goes.

Hmmmm now then I was also thinking of entering it into the Pink Elephant spots/stripes challenge but would you think the gingham effect paper would qualify???

Right off for a little glass of wine and a bit of my wizard stitchery whilst watching tv!  Must get a up to date photo of my stitching to show the progress I have made - I am onto the last quarter of him - althought lots of other bits to be added - just keep stitching, just keep stitching.

Take care & thanks for looking



  1. Fab Dr Who image, my son would've loved that one. Love the Saturated Canary one too, they're both lovely cards :o) Hugs, Lisa x

  2. Just realised speaking in past tense about my son looks odd... I meant I've just finished his birthday cards and he'd have liked this one if I'd used it lol!

  3. Hey, Ali! 2 fab cards! Love your Dr Who one and you've coloured him brilliantly! That SC image is so sweet on your second card and the papers are lush!
