Nearly a week has gone by . . .

. . . since I last posted ! Still a little hectic here but is gradually calming down now . . not fully but a little ! I had a little blog hop last night to catch up but unfortunately didn't have enough time to leave many comments, so apologies peeps. Am hoping to get more time tonight (after I've done my homework!), to have another quick blog hop, so fingers crossed will catch up with everyone slowly but surely.

Over at ICS (Inspirational Card Sketches) this week, Dawn has drawn yet another fab sketch for us to play with. The DT were even luckier as ICS is sponsored by Busy Beauties Designs this week and we got to choose an image to play with . . . what fun!

Now, I rotated the sketch 90 clockwise only because I liked the look of the sketch that way (!) and here's what I came up with. The card is going to be for a work colleague whose birthday is very soon . . just hope she likes it !

Papers: MME
Image: Cuppa Sweetness from Busy Beauties
Ribbons from stash
Coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment made on computer.

Now I can't wait to see what you do with the fab sketch this week and pop over to the ICS blog to give the new DT members some "lurve" . . . they are very talented ladies indeed.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Colour Create - colour combo this week of soft pink, soft blue, white & silver. I "boobed" a little as I tried to print the sentiment with a silver colour code but it has come out more black or pewter - whoops!

DU2DS - hearts

Creative Inspirations - Feminine - I know my card doesn't feature any ladies (per say) but I do think if has a feminine vibe (!).

Secret Crafter - hearts

Pile It On - Theme is "Enough of Winter colours"

Well gotta dash as am up really early tomorrow morning and need my sleep ! Fingers crossed Mr Scheduler will work properly now . . . yes, I know it's me who mucks it up but hey, it is good to blame Mr Scheduler every now and then ! ! !

Hi, fabulous card chuck!! I think it's very girly and the sentiments perfect - reminds me of girly get togethers and a good old natter. If you're free at 11 - I'll bring the biccies and buns LOL! Wonderful image and lovely colour combi!
