Afternoon all...

... hope you are all well!!  Its holiday time here and the boys are off so trying to think of things to do because if I didnt they'd be on the xbox 24 hours a day and we cant be having that!!  (although it would make for an easier agument free life!! lol)

Still dont seem to find any crafty time, but I've got a couple of pics of cards saved and can blog one now.  I made this card for a lovely crafty bud:

The image is a Saturated Canary, coloured with promarkers, matted onto kraft card, raised with 3d tape.  The papers were from a magazine paper pack again matted onto Kraft, the die cut is a memory box die with pearls added, I've then added twine and and a charm from my stash.  The sentiment is just printed from word.

I would like to enter this into:

Papertake weekly - Build it up
I love promarkers - Pets.
Aud sentiments  - anything goes with sentiment
Its awfully quiet upstairs, off to see what they are up to :-)

Thanks for looking
