Pretty in Pink.

Hi everyone. As an escape after the boredom of work I couldn't resist making a card to enter some challenges.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
DP :- Basic Grey.
Colouring :- Distress Inks.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Flowers :- Prima.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Lace :- Ribbon Girl.

The challenges I'd like to enter are :-
Penny Black :- Lace and Pearls.
Basic Grey :- Sketch and DP.
Ribbon Girls :- Cream, pink and brown.
ABC :- P is for Pink.
Penny Black at Allsorts :- Welcome Spring. (Thanks Brenda)

It's a gorgeous image isn't it but I haven't done much colouring with Distress Inks so I don't think I've done it justice. I think I need more practice.

Tomorrow I have to work a full day and next week things will be back to normal. We've had a week of lovely weather. Some days warmer than others! I've got my fingers crossed that tomorrow is nice as that's the day my colleagues daughter gets married. I'm looking forward to seeing their photos! The only snag is that I'm off to the craft show at the SECC on Sunday and as we leave about 6.30am and get home about 9pm it's a long day. I usually look forward to a day off on the Monday but this time I'll be working. Poor me!! Roll on my day off next Thursday.

And just a wee update about Oliver - he's got the chickenpox now! Catriona sent me a text at work this morning so I posted his Get Well card and chocolate buttons this afternoon.

Apologies for being a bad blogger and not managing to visit many of you this week. I'll try harder next week!

Thanks for looking and hope you like. If you've got time to leave a comment I'd love to hear what you think.
