Last Minute Again.

Well all I can say is that it's a good thing I didn't make a New Year's resolution not to enter challenges at the last minute cos here I am again trying to enter the Just Magnolia challenge and it's almost the deadline. Again!! I've had a whole day off and I am ashamed to say I only started making this card this evening and not early evening at that.

I coloured the lovely Tilda in heart dress with Promarkers and her wings with a Sakura clear, glitter gel pen. I used the same gorgeous MME DP that I used yesterday. I just love it. I love the colours and the patterns it is just yummy paper and now I have bought some more I can use it freely. I added some Prima flowers and brads from my stash. The flowers are edged with Promarker. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I also added faux stitching with an American Crafts Precision pen. The sketch I used is a really nice one from Sketch Saturday.

I can probably enter some other challenges but I'll need to think about that later.

I think I have enough layers to enter the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge and I think it is girly enough for the Passion for Promarkers challenge!

In spite of the fact that I'm sure I have plenty of Teddy stamps I decided that I needed some Popcorn the Bear stamps from Joanna Sheen for the new challenge atJust Cute Bears. I ordered some last night but of course I had to go off out this morning to see if I could get one locally. I went into a local shop that makes celebration cakes and sells craft goods. And met a friend! So I found a couple of things, then we went for lunch and then off to another craft shop that was having a sale. So that was really nice. We had a nice lunch and a chat and that was good. And I was only out of the house for just over 2 hours! Unfortunately I got caught up with other things after that and only started crafting well into the evening. I did catch up with commenting on the entries for Totally Gorjuss. I think it's important to comment as much as I can because it can be quite discouraging to enter challenges and find that no-one from the DT comments on your work. It is time consuming but when someone has gone to the bother of entering it is nice to acknowledge it.

I need to go and check out the price of some flower nesties! See you tomorrow.
