Wet Weekend

And it is still raining!! I think it is going to carry on all weekend, I'm bored of it now, let's just have some sunshine :)

OH is running the Milton Keynes Marathon tomorrow, let's hope the wind will be blowing in the right direction, I think we are going to need a big umbrella while watching!

For this card I have used another Tilda from the Princess collection, this is the first time I have inked her up, when I coloured her in, the papers that I had in mind didn't actually go, I should of checked before I started colouring, then I remembered that I had bought a few of the Magnolia 6 x 6 papers so I have used those instead.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Just Magnolia - Buttons & Bows
Fussy & Fancy - Punches & Dies

Enjoy the weekend

Truly Scrumptious - Distress, Die Cuts / Punches

Rain, rain go away it looks like it is going to be a damp and misterable day today. 
On Monday I joined a running club for beginners this is coming from the person who always said they never saw the point of running :) only if there was a shop at the end of it :), I ran 2 miles again yesterday and went to a Zumba class last night, I think my legs with be stiffening up as the day goes on!!.
I can't believe how fast 2 weeks comes around and still no blogging inbetween!!  Over on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge Blog this weeks its distress, die cuts / punches.
I distressed the paper with a TH distresser tool that I have had for years, I have die cut the swirl - I can't remember the name of it, also the butterflies are die cut.

I have coloured the gorgeous Amy from Whimsy Stamps using copics, paper is Chapter One from Kaisercraft, I absolutely adore these colours, it's one of my favourite colour combos.

Truly Scrumptious - Sketch

I was hoping to make lots of cards these last couple of weeks but haven't, I had a really bad cough and cold again last week so didn't feel like doing much at all, I have 5 commissioned cards to make so better get a move on with those.

My 13 year old son has gone of to Paris this morninging with the school on a football tournament trip they will be visiting Disneyland, DH had to take him this morning as I would of shed a tear or two and didn't want to embarass him :).

This week on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge we have a sketch, I have used the gorgeous Wispy from Saturated Canary, sorry about the picture I took it last night it wasn't very good light.

Have a good day
