Friday Again

Unfortunately when I saw Laura's sketch on 2sketchers4 I didn't immediately get an idea which is what usually happens but that could be because I was still struggling to get back to normal when I first saw it. So I had these scraps of gorgeous October Afternoon on my desk and started to layer the card to sketch. I wish now I decided on 3 flowers instead of two because the third flower is a space that annoyed me when I thought I was finished. Not sure why I decided on two when I know that odd numbers tend to work better.

Now yesterday's card I had used a cute PB boy with a fun sentiment and I could have used him for Cute Card Thursday but this fella has been stamped since Ally Pally and not be used, he wasn't even coloured. So I've used him instead and made him into a Valentines card and the insert will say Wearing you're Wife's present. The stamp was an unmounted from a stall that was selling loads of them, the papers are old and I think are Making Memories but don't hold me to that.


These pictures are for Carol who was intrigued that my Craftroom was in the outhouse which used to be the coal bunker and a shed, this is what you would see outside my back door.


This is to the right of my room barely enough room for my Ipod speakers.



This is the new unit that hubby put in last year and to the left are shelves with boxes and a large plastic box that hold all my 12 by 12 but that photo is boring.

I also was asked whether I used primsacolours for colouring which I do, I've also got some polychromes and plan to get a few more. I do have some promarkers but I struggle with the tops so I've given up using them. Whoops sorry about the long post.
