Photo of me!!

Hi all, well after many requests I have uploaded a photo of me onto my blog. Why has it taken me so long? Well mainly because I am the one behind the camera and nobody thinks about taking a "good" picture of me, when I'm being serious or anything :-) Well this one was taken yesterday and I didn't know it was happening so hence the screwed up face, might also have something to do with the fact that I had just walked 14 miles and my feet were killing me. Needless to say today I'm as stiff as a poker feel more like 85 than my actual age and to reassure me so called friends are telling me that I'm going to feel worse tomorrow, GREAT, just what I wanted to hear. Anyway, I did finish a card for this weeks WOJ challenge but the camera on my mobile decided to save it to the phone and not the memory card, why can't technology just work the way I want it to, can't it read my mind or what???

Hello Everyone

Hi all, sorry I haven't been about the last month, my life has been turned upside down with builders, hospital appointments, work, family etc I just haven't had time nor the energy to make any cards and for that I am truly sorry :-(
I did manage to find some time this week to have a go at the challenge over at Whiff Of Joy and Copic Creations.
This week at WOJ there was a recipe to follow, 3 papers, 3 flowers and 1 ribbon. Now the image that I have used is from their new Summer Collection which I pre-ordered and received quite some weeks ago but never got much of an opportunity to use them.

The papers are from American Crafts and the ribbon was from stash that I had. The flowers believe it or not were part of a Christmas present I got and these were attached to the wrapping (recycling here, doing my bit for the environment).

As this is the time of year that my lillies are in full bloom, the stems of these flowers reminded me of them and they are double layered.

Now onto the challenge this fortnight over at Copic Creations, and here we had to colour in some hair in brunette. Now I am really loving my copics and as I progress with my card making, my colouring skills are improving also. I hope you can see this all with the card.

These were the pens I used, hope you can read them ok, although copics are slightly more expensive that other pens available in the market, I would recommend anyone to try just a couple of colours as you will be amazed by the endless possibilities that these pens can do.

Any how, I was due to go in another operation last week, but it has been delayed for a week or two, hope to get a few more challenges in by then, but who knows what tomorrow may hold.
