Afternoon Girls, another gorgeous day today, this morning it looked like November outside, thick, wet mist and cold, thought we were done for the day, and then about 11o'clock, out pops the sun, oh it's so nice...anyway, must not blather so much.....Made this card for my Mia for Easter, and also saw the girlie theme for Simon Says,and thought this should fit the bill....the image was from colouring book, coloured with Promarkers,paper is an old one I think from artymiss, thats a blast from the past...cut the bunting by hand and put some glitter and die cut lettering on, a heart and some string and possibly the odd button, all from stash....got Mia's name to stand on some ridged plastic, hope I am explaining this well..just folded it into a triangle and stuck the letters on...simples....lol...I hope you like my card,I hope Mia will too....thanks for calling round, be nice if we could have a cuppa and a slice of cake wouldn't it...never mind, your here thats what matters....have a nice evening, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Happy Friday everyone, oh I bet your all so pleased, and the weather is behaving nicely too....fingers crossed....do we do the clocks this week-end..think so but need to check it out....sorry I have'nt been around much this week, I have had the worse chest infection, again, still not slept properly,this has been going on for over a week now, abit fed up to say the least,my ribs feel like they have been pounded on....just hope it goes away soon...
My card is for Mo's challenge, which is show me some 'Attitude'....there are so many Mo's images that can fit this one, how to choose...well I did,...lol...He looks a real little 'Tike' this one..lol...The papers and all but the bunting, were from a Trimcraft kit I got at christmas,don't really do kits much, but this does have quite a few nice bits in it and the papers are lovely...the bunting was just cut out of matching paper, threaded on crochet cotton,and then layered up with the wording, as you can see.....Oh yes, the image is coloured using Promarkers as usual.
Well I hope you like it,sorry the picture is not the best, funny angle I suppose, I'm putting it down to me not feeling well, thats a good enough excuse...lol....thanks for popping by, hope to be back tomorrow with another challenge card if I can, enjoy the rest of the day, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxx
