Make A Wish............

Good morning everyone how are you all this morning? It was soooo beautiful yesterday even had a nice run in the car with the roof was lovely. Natalie was fine at the Alan Shearer centre the staff there are soooo lovely & Natalie loved it altho the facilities downstairs were shut so she didnt go into the cave to the censory area or the giant ball pit.....I soooo want to go in there with her!!! We had a lovely 2 hours at the metro centre went macky d's for dinner. 2 hours is nothing tho at the metro centre its too big!! We didnt even spend much money I brought no crafty stuff can you believe.....I did buy myself 2 new tops & another pair of skinny jeans lol.
Anyway onto my card which I made for The Sugar Bowl challenge which is a fabulous sketch altho the colour of purple & green kinda threw me out of my comfort zone......but I do like to thrown out of that & it turned out not bad in the end. I even got to ink up another forgotten stamp yayyy
I rotated the sketch just to be different......I do like to be different lol.

This is 'Make A Wish' by Sugar Nellie which I got from Funky Kits. I actually found I had a big pile of purple & green paper but dont know who they are by they were just lieing at the bottom of my 8x8 paper drawer sorry.

The image I coloured using distress inks I've been playing over the weekend with my pencils & inks, I'm trying to practice more. I sprinkled glimmer dust over her wings & wand.

All the flowers, except the small green ones are from Crafty Emma's Store along with the scalloped card.

The lilac & mint green card used for matting were from my stash as is the hat pin & pearls.
Well thats it from me I'm gonna get my next load of washing in then I'm doing some hopping to come catch up with you all. Unfortunately yesterday took its toll on me & I ended up bed ridden last night droll I know but it was worth & me & my sons girlfriend kept looking at baby things lol......awwww so cute & sweet.

I will see ya soonies thank you for all of your lovely comments I really do appreciate each & every one mmwah.

Hi Vicky, I am on catch up time again hunni. Life has been so busy here I haven't had time to CRAFT!!!! So glad Natalie enjoyed herself and you had a couple of hours to your self. Sorry to hear you were taken poorly again hunni, I hope by now you are feeling a bit better again. Your card is out of this world again sweetie.

I had a lovely pub lunch out with hubby today as it is our anniversary. Off to comment on your other two cards.
