Good morning !
I do apologise for being such a bad blogger. We went on holiday to Cornwall during the last week of the Easter holidays and had the most fabulous time. It was a well deserved, relaxing and enjoyable break away from everything but I've had to pay the price this week and get back to starting back to school, being knee deep in washing and ironing and being a taxi driver most nights and to make it worse, my DH has been working late afternoons into the early hours so I've had to do it all myself which as many of you will know, can be very hard work at times so I have come back down to Earth with a thump !!
It was Fizzy's birthday while we were away - we can't believe she has turned 2 already - wow, where has that time gone ?
Anyway, back to the task in hand and telling you all about this week's challenge on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog. This week we had a fabulous sketch to follow by the ultra talented Chris and it is certainly a fabby sketch. I have definately saved this one for future use.
My new Gorguss girls arrived in the post yesterday afternoon and I just had to use one of them. I also received in the post the blog candy that I had won from Judy and in there were the most gorgeous flowers of wonderful citrus colours which really got me going !
The base card is yellow Bazzill.
The lime green card is Core'dinations.
The patterned paper is BasicGrey Urban Prairie.
The Gorguss girl image has been coloured with ProMarkers. Cocoa and cinnamon (hair), ivory and blush (skin), yellow and gold (flowers), lime green and soft lime (dress and socks). I also chalked the background of the image with some lime green and orange chalks which were also in Judy's blog candy.
The yellow card the image has been matted onto is Core'dinations and has been cut with my nesties.
The flowers are from Judy's blog candy and I have added some paper roses.
The raffia ribbon is from Hobbycraft.
The photo corner has been punched with an EK Success photo corner punch and I have added a Claire Curd sentiment.
The rest of the DT's creations are astounding as always so you must go and have a look at them. I'm hoping that this week I shall be able to catch up on my blog hopping as well as my card making so I'm looking forward to seeing your take on Chris' sketch.
See you tomorrow for Colour Create !
Have a great Saturday.
