WaltzingMouse Sketch 17

It been a glorious day here ... always the way ... people have the weekend off  work and it rains non stop and then Monday comes and hey ho the sun comes out ... I've been to my Pilates class and don't feel as rough as I did last week ... Thankfully! ... And I've had time to do a card for the latest challenge at WaltzingMouse ... This is the sketch ...

I am having a terrible time uploading lately ... since blogger change the format everything is taking forever! So here's my card (I hope) ...


I used 3 different stamps here 2 of which are butterflies ... I love white stamped on kraft CS and I also love pink with kraft so I used some pink glittery tulle to make a bow and glittered a flower ... the 'button' is actually a brad ... had to add some bling to my flowers too  ... just gives it a soft look don't you think? 

Don't forget tomorrow marks the start of a brand new challenge over at City Crafter Challenge so you still have time to enter our current challenge ... 
Thank you once again to all you lovely people who take the time to leave a comment ... I look forward to each day to hear from you ... 
Enjoy the rest of your day ...

Little bookmark

Good morning everyone...
How was your weekend? Mine was good ... starting on Friday evening when I went to see Joe Longthorne   here in Liverpool ... It was a lovely evening in an intimate little place and the first time I had seen Joe in years ... he was obviously out of the circuit following his illness but having had a life saving bone marrow transplant he is making a come-back. In case you don't know who he is ... he is an impersonator of famous singers .. if you shut your eyes you are listening to Shirley Bassey, Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond ... Tom Jones ... He looks more frail but his voice is as strong and powerful as ever ... Yep,it was a lovely evening.
Yesterday it was so dull and rainy here ...  I did the only thing a Brit would probably do ... I packed us a picnic and off we went .. into the countryside and ended up at a place called Lady Heyes ... A collection of antique and vintage stores ... with a sewing, craft, and cake store to boot ... The sun did eventually come out and it was a lovely day ....
I managed to find time to make a little bookmark which has all the colours of the Play Date Cafe colour challenge ... 



Pretty tough challenge those colours ( for me anyway) ... so here's my book mark ...

This was tough to photograph as the shiny paper is actually sort of holographic ... you turn it one way and it is Turquoise ... turn it the other and it is neon pink  ... just right for the challenge ... so here's another picture that hopefully shows what I mean ...


Nothing really special but I wanted to take on the challenge ....
Hope to be back later .... enjoy your day

Till soon
