Polka Doodles Challenge meets Charisma Cardz !

WOW, I can't believe that we are now on week #18 already. Seriously where does the time go? Days are blurring into weeks & the months now have huge great big wings and are flying past quicker than Concorde could get to NY ! I've even started looking around for Christmas present ideas . . . now that is getting depressing !

Anyhow enough of my depressing waffle, the challenge this week (set by Ruth) was to make our own flowers. I had an idea in my head but my brain just wasn't working in tandem with my hands & I couldn't get it to be how I could see it in my head! Well after much frustration, I had to admit defeat (& also time was running out) & this is my card . . . although not fully happy with it as it still needs something . . . better photo's would probably be a start ! lol

I have used papers from the "Jingle Jangles" CD, some doodling, chalking & inking. Quite a bit of wire (!) & the sentiment is alphabet rub ons from Doodlebug.

I a also entering this card into the Charisma Cardz challenge this week. It's been age since I entered (blame the eye) and really wanted to participate before the week ran past me again ! The challenge this week is "Flower Power" . . . and mines a winter flower (!) hopefully with a bit of "power" . . . lol

Hoping Mr Scheduler actually works for me . . . me & him are definitely not a match made in heaven . . as working today. So looking forward to the weekend as I need to catch up with you all . . getting crafting inspiration withdrawls . . my new found addiction!
