Well the challenge this week over at Papertake Weekly is Black & White + 1. Now you'd think that someone who spends most of her professional life dealing with figures etc would be able to count to 1.
But seemingly I can't.
Cos I realised after I did me card that I'd coloured the grass green.
In my defence, I was so smitten with me new Heidi In The Flowers image that I just HAD to use her cos she is so cute.
Which obviously led to me having one of me moments cos I was merrily colouring away and forgot and used a bit of green for the grass.
Which makes it black and white + 2.
Like I said to someone the other day, you can take the blonde out of the hair,
but not out of the girl :(
So here's the big picture, and the scene of the crime.
I coloured Heidi in with PMs but forgot the Glamour Dust - just when you thought it couldn't get worse lol xxx!!
You can get hold of a Heidi for yourself over at Dies To Dies For and check out the offer of the day - it's Magnoliatastic :)))xxx
I did a bit of a funky mix and match with the papers. They are Funky Fairy's gingham and Funky Hand's Salt And Pepper spotty.
I've been on the scrounge round the old cards again and found a bit of me fave ribbon :) The button was from a kit but that's about all I can tell you cos I can't remember which one!!!
You're not surprised are you, considering I couldn't even count to 1 lol xxx Sharon
The 'cute' bit on the side (ohh that sounds bad) was a mistake (most bits on the side are!!). I shouldn't have put it on cos it's made the card very unbalanced which I don't like. If I get a sec I will put something on the other side to even it up a bit. Note to Dawny - please re-read the bit in one of your book about the rule of thirds!!!!
Well apart from the cheating, it is a fantastic week over at PTW cos we have 4 brand new designers joining us. They are Sharon, Jill, Debi and Donna.
Sharonis one of the best and is one of my oldest blog buds - that is oldest as in how long I've known her, not in age (sorry Sharon, cos I've just made you sound ancient xxx). When I first started out in the land of Blog, I was just blown away by her style and work and I still am to this day.
Jillis one of the nicest, sweetest girlies ever, she does fab work, and again she's one of the first blog buds I ever had.
Debiis one of my newer blog buds and she is also one of my AFA teamies and her work is amazing.
And Donna is also one of my newer blog buds and her work is also fab and she is a granny and she's funny. So my kind of gal.
I am looking forward to working with all of these talented peeps, I really am. Though after my cheaty bit today, it might not be mutual lol xxxAnd of course we still have my other fabulous blog bud as one of our GDT and that is the wonderful Mrs Kath. She'll probably hate me for doing this but I just have to give her a toot .....
fanfare please ........ cos she's only been invited to participate in the Countdown To World Cardmaking Day which is hosted by Paper Crafts Magazine and Moxie Fab World. How fab is that!! You can read all about it here. Not only is Kath in there but also Kim (Dellow xxx), Rach (xxx) Andrea and Lucy. Girlies we couldn't wish for anyone better to represent us UK cardies and the work you did is just awesome. Well that's me done for today, although sadly not in the work department cos there is a stack of it on my desk. So I'd best get on and get it done. Have a great day and hugs to all xxx
