2 cards

I had a productive day today. After checking the weather forecast yesterday, I spent all day doing laundry. It was just as well I did, because to my surprise it was actually right - today it tipped down practically all day! It was dark, damp, cold and dreary - perfect weather for card-making. Of course I got the church work done first, but I managed these two before tea.

This is Willow from Whiff of Joy with her shopping. She is coloured with Copics and Stickles in blue, purple and silver (Colour Create's challenge), decorated with lace (Bizzy Becs store challenge), pins and pearls for Cute Card Thursday and set in a sketch from Sketch Saturday. I used paper from Basic Grey's Wisteria collection.

Basic Grey's challenge is to use pink, lime and brown, so I've used papers from the Lemonade collection. Charisma Cardz want to see an age, House Mouse and Friends want jewels so I hope these little dew drops filled with Stickles count, Simon Says Stamp's subject is "fruity", Truly Scrumptious want "summer sparkle" (it's COVERED with Stickles in Coffee Ice and Cinnamon) and I've used the same sketch from Sketch Saturday as before - I rather like it!

Hi Rosey, thanks for looking at my smash-book-in-the-making! In answer to your question, I've got loads of old stuff as well; I can't remember exactly where it all came from but it will be good to get it in there and then maybe some details will come back to me later. Some of the things are from places that I've been to several times, so it will be nice just to have a memento even if I can't remember on exactly which occasion I picked it up. And yes, there will at some point be photos...I'm off to uni today to hand in my final assignments, woo hoo! xx
