We are off out to Ski's sports day at school day and its the first one I have seen her take part in. It's an all day affair with teas and coffees by the PTA and a BBQ for lunch so I am really looking forward to it.
We were discussing over tea last night the sorts of things they will be doing i.e. egg and spoon race, three legged race, sack race etc. etc. etc. but I have been told that that is now allowed any longer ! What ? Not allowed ? Apparently these games are competitive and dangerous for our poor darlings to partake in !!!! Good grief, it never did us any harm BUT wait for the best bit ........ they have FOAM javelins and FOAM shot put - FOAM !!!! One puff of wind and it will be cast in the opposite direction ! This all have to be seen to be believed and I shall be there to see it this year !!!!
Rant over. Time to tell you what I am really here for COLOUR CREATE !!!
This week our fabby colour combo has been chosen by our very own talented Juliet !
So the colours for you this week are : Pistachio Green, Aqua and Powder pink or green, blue and pink !!!!! hehehe
The pink DP is BasicGrey (I'm not sure which pad as it was loose but at a guess I would say, Sugared !).
The paisley pattered DP is K&Co "Sparkly Sweet"
The green card is Whitewash Core'dinations which I have run through my Cuttlebug and sanded.
The image is a digi download from Lily-Boos Boutique and is called "Here Come the Girls". She has been coloured with ProMarkers and the edges of the image inked with peeled paint and broken china distress inks.
The ribbons were from Poppycraft and the buttons are from my stash.
The flowers are the same flowers I used yesterday and came from Judy. The white flowers are again Hero Arts Art Flowers and the button brads were a pressie from my friend Tara G and are Making Memories button brads.
The leaves were punched with a Leone Em punch.
The rest of my fellow DT buddies have made amazing cards for you to see again this week so please hop over to the blog and go and have a look.
We are looking forward to seeing your fabby creations too !
Foam javelins and shot put - whatever next ! See, I'm still rambling ! ............ Does this mean I don't have to sharpen my elbows for the parents race ?
Edit : Mr Blogger was very naughty and didn't publish my post at 9am like I asked him to so I have to press the button myself this afternoon ! It's not the first time it has happened and I don't know if it is me doing something wrong or Blogger. Does anyone know ?
I also meant to say that I am entering this card in the Friday Sketchers Challenge this week as I used their fabulous sketch this week !
Yes, sports day was very good, thoroughly enjoyable but unfortunately they didn't use the foam javelins or shot put this year !!!!
