Evening all..

... eugh its blowing a gale here and trying its hardest to pour down, glad I'm all snug inside (unlike poor hubby who has gone to work for the night :-( )  Anyhoo, I'm playing catch up as not been in much today, still making it to the gym although it's a struggle as I'm easily demotivated and it doesnt seem to be getting any easier, and then Tom was at a football party which went on a bit longer than expected.

Enough of my waffling - I'll just get round to posting one of my latest makes as I've seen loads of love challenges and might as well pop it in a few:

I loved this image as soon as I saw it I was going to send it to my eldest for valentines as we have a bit of a thing for Zombies at the moment - but he saw me working on it and when I told him what my original plan was - he advised me that eugh thats just weird - so its just going in my card box lol.

The image is a Whimsie Doodles freebie that I have coloured with promarkers and matted onto red and black card - the dp was from a free magazine paper pack from a while ago, again matted onto red and black card.  The black raffia has been 'upcycled' (ooh check me out) as it was tied round a gift bag - I have then die cut a heart and put holes in it to look like a button and tied raffia through it.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:

Passion for promarkers - anything goes
Allsorts - love is in the air
Di's digi challenge - love/valentines
Gem of a challenge - All you need is love
I love promarkers - Love is in the air

Right off to make a coffee and round up the boys to see if there's anything on tv.

Thanks for looking
