It has been a lovely day so far for my holiday. We didn't get the Bank Holiday last week but today is a local holiday.I'm not proud - if it's a holiday I'm happy to have it whatever it's for. I'm glad it's nice today because we are surrounded by farms and the harvest is taking a while this year. We used to have a farm until my husband saw sense and realised it was not worth killing himself with work. Our son would help, when he was still at home, but there was no way he wanted to be a farmer. Smart move if you ask me. Our lovely Westminster Government does not make it easy to be a farmer nowadays!
But enough waffle. I have been busy this morning blog hopping before I thought maybe I should get some crafting done. I had a slight diversion as a parcel of goodies arrived from Elaine at Quixotic. But I have been very good I have put the goodies aside until I get this post done and challenges entered.
I coloured this lovely Tilda with my Promarkers and used a Sakura clear glitter gel pen on her wings. I used wild asparagus DP from MME. Nesties were used to cut the circles and scallops as usual. The semi-circles at each side were made by drawing round a plate! Flowers and gorgeous velvet ribbon from my stash. The butterflies are also from my stash and I used them because the 1st Sophisticat challenge had butterflies on the sketch so I thought I'd add some to my card!
So here's the card.
To be honest while I was making it I hated it!! Even when I finished it I didn't like it. I think I'm getting used to it now but it's not one of my favourites.
Papertake Weekly:- Angels and fairies.
Sophisticat Challenge:- Sketch, butterflies optional.
Flutterby Wednesday #73:- Fairy or butterfly.
What do you think? Is it really awful? I don't mind if you think it is, I don't mind if you don't like it since I am not keen on it myself lol!!
Almost forgot - I won some candy on Kath's blog today. That was a good start to the day wasn't it?
