Phew . . . !

It's been a little hectic at "Chez Lou" at the moment with loads happening and not enough time to deal with it all. Things haven't gone to plan and I have missed things I really shouldn't of but couldn't avoid either . . . so apologies to anyone I have unintentionally ignored.

OK . . "Fab 'n' Funky" Challenges this week is sponsored by The Digistamp Boutique and we were allowed to choose an image from Tracy that we would like to "play with" . . . mwah to Tracy for her generosity. I chose the . . . well let's see if you can guess . . .

Isn't this image adorable and as soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to use it on . . . my sister & B-I-L's anniversary card. They celebrate their 1st anniversary really soon and I wanted to make a card that was a little different from the norm!

Papers; Basic Grey Sultry
Image: TSB "wagon full of hearts"
Coloured with Promarkers
Ribbons from stash

Here is a close up of the image which I have coloured with my Promarkers and this was a fun and easy image to colour too. I am also entering my card into the following additional challenges:

2S4U - great sketch this week and so versatile.

A spoon Full of Sugar - "Freestyle" which means make anything you like!

Caardvarks - Red heart challenge

Pile It On - theme is "Warm Wishes" and that's want I want to send in my card and I'm hoping it has a warm feel to it too!

Well better go as have loads of things to do and not enough hours or hands to complete them. I keep saying I will catch up with everyone and I promise that I will very, very soon. Until then, take care,
