Oh dear! I did say I would be catching up in blogland last weekend, but things were thrown a little off kilter, and blogging was the last thing on my mind.
My dad was taken poorly on Thursday and everything else went out of the window. Dad is 84 and Mum 80 and I guess you just think they will always be around, until you get a reminder that they are not getting any younger :(
Thankfully, Dad is now much better and he's got an appointment on Friday at the Stroke clinic, so we should hopefully know more after then.
48 and still Daddy's girl, guess I always will be.
I had a card almost finished and some candy to post too..need to take a photo of it yet, hopefully over the weekend I'll get myself sorted out and back on top of things again.
I rarely make baby cards, I rarely need to make baby cards, but we seem to be having a run on pregnant ladies, and they are all having pink ones so I thought I'd better make a start on some cards.
You know how slow I am, the little ones will be starting pre-school before I get around to making a birth card!
And just for a change, out came a Tilda! As always, she's coloured with DI re-inkers and markers.
Skin - Tattered Rose and Tea Dye.
Pink Shades - Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany.
Blue Shades - Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans.
The papers are Inkido Forever Collection (yes, again! I loves these papers a lot!)
Lots of dies used on this card...image is cut with a nestie and scallop nestie, butterfly is a set of MFT dies, flowers and leaf are Magnolia Clover and Vintage Daisy.
SU punches for the sentiment and SU Sizzix die for the strip in the middle..phew!
I'm sure I can enter my card into a challenge or two:
In The Pink challenge is 50 shades of pink...I'm sorry Christine that it didn't turn out quite as pink as I was hoping it to be, but I had to enter your 1st challenge :)
Totally Tilda challenge is to use Kraft.
Sweet Stampin' is Things With Wings.
Die-ing for a challenge is a fab sketch from Hazel :)
Thanks for looking, and always a huge thank you for any comments you may leave, even more so when I am so far behind myself!
