Happy Wednesday...

... to you all.  Hope you are all well and the sun is shining where you are.  I've just returned from having a mooch round the shops with mum and going to quickly post this before hubby comes in for some lunch.

This is just a card I've made to have in, I saw the sketch on sketch Saturday and fancied having a go and then I've also been able to link it to a couple of other challenges:

The image is a sugar nellie one (I think) coloured with promarkers, although I think I need to practice hair a bit more!! matted onto green and pink card - I love the green and pink colour combo - but I really need to try new colours to take me out of my comfort zone!

The papers where freebie lotv papers from a magazineand then I've added some gems from my stash.

I would like to enter this into

Sketch Saturday - sketch #380 (hope this is close enough to the sketch if not just let me know and I'll remove)
Passion for Promarkers - patchwork
Sugar Nellie - anything goes
Simon says stamp - Wednesday challenge - anything goes.

Thanks for looking

Good morning to you all, hope you are well, its a lovely morning here and I'm a busy bee, washing out, been for coffee, floors washed and after this I'm going to attempt to declutter my kitchen worksurfaces :-( - it doesnt matter how ofter I do it they always end up very cluttered!!

Anyhoo, heres a card I made to have in for those boys birthdays that seem to pop up out of the blue, lol:

The image was from Pollycraft matted onto card and coloured with promarkers, I have embossed the black caard and added papers from Basic Grey again matted onto black card.  I have added twine and black pearls from my stash.

Shock!!  Finally a post from me - it feels like ages (but thats because it is)!!  I'm afraid I'm still having problems with my mojo not wanting to come out to play.  We also had a holiday and I was concerned I'd lost my mojo completely when we came home as I didnt want to do any crafting I didnt even go near my crafty area!! 

Its my sons birthday tomorrow so I knew I needed to get myself out of my funk as he had asked for a homemade card, so that was the kick start I needed - slowly, I'm starting to feel like I want to do some colouring and making again - after a crafty visit to Janine I've come home and finished a card I started to colour there - she's always good at giving me a kick up the bum and telling me not to be so silly - lol. (Thanks hun x)

So here's my card:

The image is a Sugar Nellie coloured with promarkers and fine glitter added to her wings.  The papers are old freebies from a magazine matted onto cardstock from my stash.  I haved added some die cut flowers and leaves (totally taking me out of my comfort zone - I love seeing flowers on other cards but I cant seem to get away with them!).  Then added pearls and a little gem from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:

The Sugar Bowl - anything goes.
Simon says stamp- use dies, (die cut circle, flowers and leaves)

Thanks for reading and I apologise for not commenting so much recently on blogs, hopefully I'll be back on track :-)
