So, as I promised a few weeks ago now ....
Here is a card that is one of two cards for a customer order ... It's for a 50th birthday and the lady thought it perfect for the recipient!
I still can't believe how busy I have been and continue to be with my facebook business ... which you can find here ... ... card orders etc and with life in general.
I celebrated my birthday yesterday and had a lovely weekend spent with some absolutely gorgeous friends ... out for dinner on Friday night, then some of my closest friends and families over for dinner on Saturday night and my bestie and her family stayed over and we drank far too much and stayed up far too late (3am!) watching Music Max on Foxtel (pay tv) and our rule is that all four of us have to agree that a song is
crap, oops no good, before we can go to bed ... hence the 3am bedtime lol ... Then yesterday morning we had a beautiful breakfast/brunch of bacon and eggs yum yum! Then I got just a chance to chill and relax which is what I and my head really needed ...
We've go a couple of big weekends to follow as well with us heading off to a food and wine festival next weekend to see one of mine and Bella's favourite up and coming chefs who won last years series of the Australian Masterchef (Bella is obsessed with him lol), a girl's night out the following weekend and then we've got Bella's 10th birthday the following weekend and she has requested a "Vintage High Tea" so lots to do and prepare for that ... Then with netball season starting and dancing/cheerleading we have very busy lives at the moment.
Anyway back to the card lol ... I have coloured a Redonkulous image "Cheeky Greeting" with my copics and used papers Kaisercraft papers from the Peachy Keen and the Up, Up and Away collections. I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog and I've used some ink to distress it and I have to admit I kinda like the way it turned out considering that I still struggle with male cards (no flowers, lace, bling and girly girl bit 'n' pieces lol). I just love Sheryl's digis and you should check out her blog here and her shop here ....
Well I have another 2 cards to finish off for tomorrow's mail so I'm off to finish those and I will be entering my card into the challenges listed below ....
