Some More Challenges.

Good afternoon girls, I have been very naughty this morning. I only meant to sit down for a wee while and think about what I was going to do for this week's Whiff of Joy challenge and look at the time now!! I had a few ideas about what other challenges I could fit in. But it kind of snowballed. Now I have no housework done and I need to go to work at 1.45.

Well as I said this is for the Whiff of Joy challenge and I used the lovely sketch from Friday Sketchers and their optional colours blue and orange. Now orange is definitely not my colour but I thought I would give it a go anyway and see what happened! The sweet image is coloured with Promarkers and i went over the flowers in her hand and hair with a Sakura glitter gel pen. Probably not obvious. Not obvious either but the pale blue ribbon is very shimmery and gorgeous. Nesties were used as usual and the jewels, ribbon and buttons are from my stash. The plain blue
Not sure that the next piccie adds anything but it does show you my wonky sewing. I added stitching for the La La Lands Wednesday blog which I discovered has already closed - on Sunday 30th!! Guess I missed it then. Never mind I think the card still fits a few challenges lol.

So I think this card fits the following challenges:-
Friday Sketchers:- sketch plus blue and orange.
Whiff of Joy:- bling.
Crafty Cardmakers:- complementary colours - blue and orange.
Passion for Promarkers:- any colours and girly and glittery.
Cupcake Craft:- 3 buttons, 2 papers and 1 ribbon.
Whimsy:- touchy feely - bling, buttons and ribbon.
Pile it on:- round -buttons, DP and swiss dots.
365 cards:- 3 shades of blue.
I'm just about breathless after listin all those challenges!!!
Best go and post this now and see if I can have some lunch before I go to work. Hope you enjoy the rest of what is a lovely day here. Much nicer than yesterday when some people round here had a day off for the Bank Holiday.
Maybe see you later and please let me know what you think of this card or any other one that you may like (or otherwise).

    I have never been into sewing, and when I asked my Mom if she had a spare machine going she couldn't beleive why, until I said for my card's. I now wish I took up sewing and crochet
    as it's all the fashion in card making

    Don't feel to bad about the bank holiday Hun, We can't go very far at the moment due to family as you know and I spent a lot of time on my blog the weekend, and it felt like a ghost town all was very quiet...
