Fed Up Working!

Thursday evening.

I am so fed up working full time. I still have to get through Friday, Saturday and Monday before I get a morning off and even then I have to do housework before we disappear under a pile of dog hair. My Labrador is very considerately casting and she is a very big dog lol!!

I used the lovely sketch from the Penny Black Saturday Challenge to make this card. I coloured the cute Penny Black image with Promarkers. I was inspired to use these colours of Basic Grey wisteria papers by the photo on the Basic Grey challenge. I added some faux stitching and some faux lace - I used paper lace. The flowers were cut out from scraps of the DP using Martha Stewart punches. Brads were added to two of the flowers and a button to the other. I used a tag punch for the sentiment.Ribbon, brads and button are from my stash.

I hope to enter a few challenges with this card!

Basic Grey:- Inspiration from photo - inspired by the colours in the photo.
Penny Black Saturday Challenge:- Sketch.
Passion for Promarkers:- Polka dots and any colours.
Paper Maniacs:- Ribbon.
creativecardcrew.blogspot.com/:- 2 papers, 3 flowers, 2 brads, 1 button and 1 ribbon.
Papertake Weekly:- Faking it - faux stitching.
Creative Inspiration:- Animals.
Paperplay:- Tag it.
Charisma Cardz:- Flowers.
Hope these are ok.
It is now Friday evening and I hope I am in time to enter the two Saturday challenges after all this work!
