ABC Challenge - C is for ........


Hello and a good morning to you all. It is great to see you all again, hope your week is going well. Yesterday I was moaning on about my computer and today, well, I am moaning again. Would you believe I broke my tooth yesterday .,.... ouch - so it is a trip to the dentist for me today :o( I am gutted because I was supposed to be meeting some crafty friends today ... sob, but I am sure they will spend enough for me aswell!

A huge thankyou to all who entered last week, more and more of you are joining in and it is great to see. I hope you can all join us for this weeks challenge .....

C is for ....... A Child's Card!





Straight away I knew I wanted to use this fab High Hopes image (kindly sent as a RAK) - isn't he just brill. I really enjoyed colouring him and really tried to bring lots of colour to his big fat body, lol. I think I may have to invest in this stamp - perfect for all those little boys. I very nearly made it a pink and purple girly dragon ..... maybe next time :o)



Dusted these papers off from the back of my stash - they are by DCWV from the Retro Prints pack. I followed this weeks sketch by Friday Sketchers and it was so easy to follow - loved it! Just a couple of embellishments from my stash to finish it off ... easy peasy!
Wondering if it would be bad of me to have my usual starbucks and cake before the dentist, lol, who knows I may be numb for hours afterwards and I could starve!!!! Probably best to fill up first on yumminess!
Have a lovely day whatever you do.
