I made this card on Sunday night as soon as Lisa put the challenge up on the SophistiCats blog, but I forgot to post it on my blog....duh. So before I forget again, here it is.
Another blurry pic I'm afraid. Lisa made a great sketch to follow and I had loads of fun making this one but I did have to squeeze the 3 pearls in at the bottom right corner because I forgot about them and didn't leave myself enough room. I'm not very good at remembering stuff lately am I lol.
My papers are Basic Grey although you can only see a little bit of the second paper because the image and the bits at the side and top are coverig most of it lol. The image is one I got from a blogging friend and I coloured her with my Copics. Flowers are all Primas which I inked a bit with some brown ink, sentiment is SU!, the butterflies which you can hardly see because I punched them from the same paper are done with a Anna Griffin punch (you can see them well IRL though), and everything else is from my stash. Oh I embossed an oval and cut it out because I don't have oval nesties yet, then inked over it and around the edges, then with the same ink I stamped some random flourishes with an inkadinkadoo stamp.
I went shopping and took Liam with me to help with carrying the bags lol. Just as well I did becuase we had loads of bags! I got Rhianna her scooter, loads of other stuff she had asked for, the other two kids a toy to open on Rhianna's birthday (just so they don't feel left out lol) and some new Copics for me :) I didn't buy much though because I will get some more at the weekend. Just got the colours that I really needed just now.
Rhianna is getting all excited about her birthday now and can't wait for Thursday to come, bless her. We are not having a party for her this year, but I will put a cake into school for her and her little friends to have on her birthday then when she gets home we are going to Barry's parents house so Rhianna can get her presents from them and we will stay for something to eat. Then on Saturday we are going to take the kids out somewhere, probably to the fun fair or something like that. When that is all over we are going to start decorating Liam and the girls rooms, so it looks like it will be a busy time here for a few days!
I'd better off and make some cards so I have something to put on my blog over the weekend!
