More Snuggles and some EXCITING NEWS !


Whooo hooooo the sun is shining - at last ! Yesterday was supposed to be like a Summer's day so they said on the news. Well, it was - it poured and poured yesterday and they even apologised on the local news for getting the weather forecast so wrong !

Ski went off on Brownie Camp yesterday afternoon and as predicted, it was unbearable. I kept taking myself off for a little cry all morning while telling her with a huge grin on my face that she would have a wonderful time. I managed to hold it together right up until the coach started to move away and her little face up at the window looked so sad. Well, that was me, I spent all afternoon absolutely distraught ! No doubt at this moment she is having the most fabulous time and not even giving me a second thought which is the way it should be.

We have been told that we can write to our daughter's while they are away so I spent yesterday evening making a card for her which I can send to her today. I followed the fantastic sketch that is on Passion for ProMarkers this week and so decided to enter their challenge again this week. This week you can use any colour ProMarkers. Sorry its the same image again girls but Ski adores this image and as I said last time, it reminds me so much of her so please forgive the da ja vu to it all !!!!

The DP's are Imaginisce Enchanted Garden.

The image is "Snuggle" by The Greetings Farm coloured with ProMarkers.

Colours :
Hair - mustard, sandstone and cinnamon
Skin - ivory, blush
Dress and socks - rose pink and cornflower
Bow - cornflower
Rabbit - pastel green (same colour as Polly, Ski's snuggly rabbit !)

The ribbon came from Poppicrafts a long time ago.

The button, cord and heart charm are from my stash.

The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on.

The flowers are Hero Arts "Share Laughter" which have been stamped with Hero Arts Shadow Ink and the little buttons are BasicGrey. These all came from Simon Says Stamp.

  4. Hi Jo, what a super cute card. This is one of my fave GF images too, so don't mind at all the dejavu! Hope Ski is enjoying herself at Brownie camp (I bet she's having a whale of a time). Thanks for joining us at PFP this week. Hugs, Denise x

  5. I remember watching the news late Thursday evening and thinking, oh goody, no more rain for the next 5 days...and then it poured down for most of the day! Been warm and sunny here too today, but of course you're not very far away from me, hun! LOL!

    Anyway, gorgeous card - Ski will love it. I know exactly how you feel, I still hate leaving Erin at school everyday after 4 years! I'm such a wuss!

    Have a great weekend, Jo! Hugs, Sem x
