Sorry I haven't been around for a few days, spare time seems few and far between at the moment. I spent yesterday at the Hobbycrafts Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham yesterday. I had a purse full of pennies to spend when I got there as I've been putting a little bit aside for the show each month. I only blew the budget by a relatively small amount (£50-ish) but I did get some lovely goodies to play with. The only problem is, when I ask my other half "should I buy this one or should I buy that one?" he says "Buy them both" ... so I do! Therefore I can blame him for my overspend!
I managed to get this card finished yesterday after getting home from the show. I used the colour scheme over at Fab 'n' Funky for the basis of the card (kraft, lime and pink). The image and sentiment are from Pollycraft and the papers are DCWV. I recycled a brown "take-away" paper bag for the kraft paper. Don't worry, it had only had a salad baguette in there - so it doesn't smell of Chinese or Indian take away!!! The image has been coloured with Pro Markers with a little glittering here and there. The snowflake is a Sizzlits die and I've added a couple of bits of card candy.
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
