Card making...

... to take my mind off the fact I've handed my notice in at a job that was making me miserable and I havent got a job to go to.  Obviously not recommended but I'm a great believer in fate and what will be will be. 

Its going to be a struggle (so I'll be using lots of my stash up, so that can only be a good thing lol).  When Ians shifts and mine collided his mum and dad helped out with the childcare and as his dad has not been in too good a condition health wise that can only be a plus in that I take that burden off them - its not fair for them for us to have to keep putting on them.

Thats it in a nutshell,  so heres a card I've been working on.  A few posts ago I mentioned a designer that was new to me and she recently put up a gorgeous freebie image AND she has started her own challenge blog as well as things on Facebook:

The image has been coloured with promarkers and copics for the skin,  the papers are from some left over 12x12 sheets (that may have actually been a Christmas design!)  I have also used some mirricard and then added ribbon, bow and bling from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:

Aurora Wings - anything goes.

Thanks for looking.

Happy Saturday...

.... ooh its been lovely here today - so me and t'other half have been for a walk from Captain Cooks Monument to Roseberry Topping it was lovely bit tiring but still enjoyed it - it was lovely to get out for some fresh air.

Back to blog hopping and card making now though while hubby watches real life hospital programmes on tv - not my cup of tea!!

Anyhoo, here is a recent card I made for one of my best friends who turns 40!  I tried really hard not to mention her age but didnt succeed lol.

The image is Ladybug crafts coloured with promarkers and lots of fine glitter added to the cake.  The papers are new from MME from a recent facebook win at My Mums Craft shop - ooh I love them! Matted onto grey card. The banner die is a new purchase too from Joanna Sheen another new love!!!  The sentiment is just one I printed and cut.

I would like to enter this into:
