Crafting just for fun!

Good afternoon folks. Well it is official – I am losing my marbles!!!! I got up at 5am today for work and arrived for the start of my shift at 7am. Well I would be starting my shift if I was supposed to be at work ….  yep I wasn’t due back until tomorrow… groan! Not to worry, I headed for the drive back home kicking myself for not checking my diary.

I decided to stay up and cracked on with a couple of DT cards and then I thought I should try something different. Woohoo, I made a card just for the fun of it and wow, I thoroughly enjoyed myself!!

I have had this lovely image from Saturated Canary coloured for a few weeks now and just haven’t had chance to make her up into a card. I am so happy to finally be able to take part in the Saturated Canary challenge because I just adore Krista’s images. Also this week Krista is donating $1 for every entry to a very special cause – you can read all about it on the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog

I used my Spectrum Noir pens to
colour with and I am really pleased with it. I really love the flesh tones of the Speccies. It is first time out for my new leaf die too by Memory Box ….. I think I will be using my Tiny Tendril die a lot in the future, it is such a lovely size.

I am thinking about doing a little colouring session now ready for my next day off blunder lol, it is really nice being able to just create for fun. Here are a couple of challenges that I am entering ….

Divas by Design – Friendship
Kaboodle Doodles – Flowers
Papertake Weekly – Things That Make You Go Awww
