What a difference some sleep makes! I'm back in the land of the living today - yeay! Might actually get some crafting done - wooohoooo!
Kids are still poorly though and haven't eaten anything since Tuesday night. Blooming schools, breeding grounds for Alien life-forms/bacteria/germs, whatever. Filthy places!! AND guess what? A Mum at their school, who happens to be a cleaner, said once that they are not allowed to use Bleach or disinfectant????!!!! Eh? How the Hell to they actually clean the place then?? Soap?? Years ago when I was Manager of a Pub, we had to go on a course to learn about chemical use, such as bleach - simple really. Why can't they do that in schools where they need the bloomin stuff??
Anyhow, that's my rant over - I feel better now! Onto more cheerful things, my card for the day (and yes, just the one - lol) is made following the sketch over at Midnight Madness:
LOADS going on over there - if you haven't had a look yet, where have you been?? I chose the more challenging sketch again this time, and have also used a colour theme from Rosie Dee's Challenge, of 'Yellow, Green and White'. Yeah, I know I have some lilac there too, just thought it needed a bit more somehow. . .
I have teamed these up with one of my new images, the Pine Marten, available to purchase at
my wee blog shop. If I say so myself, I think he's a real cutie! I have used him just as it comes in black and white, although you could print him out as a Sepia I suppose. My papers are from Tinker & Co, and a tartan one I have converted into a B+W. This way I get to make it whatever colour I like in my page make-up programme, an old version of QuarkXpress. Wish I could afford a newer full version, but hey - that's major expense!!
OK, need to do some serious DT stuff now. I'm a day behind myself and need to catch up some - eeekk! Catch ya later folks!
