Next time, GIVE UP


I made this card with the Sketch Saturday sketch last week but it got to the point I had to step away from the card because it just wasn't working and if I didn't love the cute image it would have found its way to the bin.
I think my problem was colouring to match the papers, I liked the idea of a star but it just didn't all gel.
I had a fabulous day out yesterday, went to The Craft Barn ignoring Tom Tom it was a much simpler way to get there. But on our detour home we listened to him, well my Sis was happy to cut the corner but I wasn't convinced it was the safest route. Luckily it took us past a very nice Pub where we had lunch and its only a hop, skip and jump away from Crafts U Love which was our destination.
Today I really must get on with some cards I'm off on my girlie holiday soon, thats right I'm leaving Hubby at home.
