"Brace Yourselves"!!!!



Ok, my poor husband, like many other craft/blog widower's has
been feeling a little neglected of late, so as a compromise I took
my water colour paints downstairs this weekend and sat in the
lounge and painted whilst he watched the TV!!! How fair am I??Lol,
Well I quite enjoyed the T.V. in the background! No intellectual
conversations or anything like that!! ha ha. So that means I have
lots to post!!! First one being........This little card I made for the
Friday Sketchers 1st Year Anniversary! Hip Hip Hooray!!
You all need to enter this one, not only is there a fabulous prize
to be won but you also get to win from the fabby designers,
Their Card!!! (works of art all of them) OMG but can you imagine
owning one of Claudia's???? and a little gift/RAK too!
This great sketch was created by Carole and this is my take on it.
Papers are BG Archaic, Tilda I have coloured with my water
colour pencils and palette. Flowers and lace from stash, the orange
ribbon inserts on two of the flowers I hand stitched by twisting the
ribbon and tacking at the bottom to make a rose shape. Blue
butterfly has been punched and I have used string pearls for the
body and also for the swirls. As I have hand stitched my roses and
used faux stitching around border and on the punched hearts it
makes this card suitable for the Great Just Magnolia Challenge
too!! Hooray two for one!! This is a great week to enter too! not
only do you win a fab prize but you get to be a guest designer for
June whoop magnificent!!! So what are you waiting for!!!
TFL More posts later, need my lunch!! Sue xx

gorgeous Sue, love the fab colours on your card, and all the wonderful details. I colour all my images in downstairs on an evening in front of the tv, so that my hubby doesn't feel neglected too. but also like you there isn't any intellectual conversation either .. actually there isn't any...lol...
Thank you for joining in with us at just magnolis.x

Lovely colours and that image is beautifully coloured as always. I started cardmaking after getting fed up of being an X-box widow! We do both pack it in and watch some TV together sometimes though!
