Phew - a bit breezy this morning! I don't envy our builder guys standing on the roof today with all the dust flying about. Rather them than me, LOL.
I have a card for you today - woohoo! Things have been so 'up in the air' just recently that I haven't had a lot of crafting time. But I did manage to make this card for the new theme at the
Delicious Doodles Challenge which this fortnight is 'Remembrance'.
It's Armistice Day here in the UK, and on Sunday this week it is Remembrance Day when the whole nation remembers the brave people who died defending our country and the freedom of it's people. It's our way of showing our respect for their valiant sacrifices. Without them this country wouldn't be the place that it is today. BUT for our challenge, you need not mark this event for your remembrance make. You could just remember a birthday or something else. Up to you!
So here is my card, made using one of my new images - Poppy:
I coloured her in using my usual watercolour pencils, then scanned in the compy and printed for the layers. I added some stickles here and there, but you can't tell in these piccies, not the greatest of light these days up here in bonny (?) Scotland! LOL.
My papers are made by myself using some damask patterns I had on the compy, and colour tweeked, merged and messed with. Then I added some of the little poppies from the image to the paper in the corners.
I also added some lovely red pearls for some extra bling. Just the job me thinks! My layout was following an old Mojo Monday sketch from a week or so ago.
Righty then, off to do some more DIY in the dining room. Much as I enjoy decorating and DIY I'll be glad when I'm done. Not used to doing a whole house in one go. . . I'm cream crackered!!
Catch ya later peeps!
