A card for Mum...


Hello! Blogging again after what seems like ages...there really aren't enough hours in the day for what I'd like to achieve... mostly because one of my main aspirations is just having a few hours to sit in front of the box & CHILL... it's my primary objective in life!!

However I managed to drag myself off the sofa and create something for Mother's day which meets the challenge over on Secret Crafter. The sketch is from this week's Sketchy Colors challenge.

The light is so dull at the moment isn't it? I couldn't even take a decent pic with a halogen lamp blazing about 6 inches away from the card!! Mind it's probably to do with angles or summink as to why it still looks so dark, I really know nothing about photography!

The cutest Sarah Kay image from Stampavie got an airing for a change, with papers from K&Co & a few paper flowers which also qualifies this project for the Totally Gorguss challenge.

Many thanks for taking the trouble to look & comment on my work,

Have a good day!
