Yep I'm back .. wow I think this is post number four for today ... the coffee has kicked in ... and the big bowl of icecream and chocolate I had earlier has started making me feel a bit icky in the belly. I was doing so well today ... salad sandwich for lunch, strawberries, kiwifruit and banana for snack and a healthy tea of chicken and vegies .... sigh. But at least its made me super hyper and creative ... although a little jittery.
For this card I have used some lovely Kaisercraft paper and some purple cardstock just to give a little colour and to co-ordinate with my little Meljen's Donkey. Oh how I love this donkey. You wouldn't believe how quick he is to colour. I tried to do a 'rainbow' donkey but it just didn't look right ... perhaps I will try that again another day.
I actually started this card last night and I was going to use a different image. I wanted to colour the cat black and just couldn't do it ... so then I thought about stripes and was really happy ... until I got to his head! The stripes should have gone the other way .... now he looks like a cat in a prison suit ha ha ha. My colouring was so disasterous that I just had to attach some photos to show you. So here they are :)
Really wanted to get this card done as I had already made a crochet flower (yeah I know I'm totally addicted to craft .. I also knit and cross stitch although not much anymore as I'm to busy colouring now!) This crochet flower was lucky to make it onto the card, I had actually made a few and some doilies as well but as soon as I finish them my daughter says in her sweet little voice "Mummy knitting flower me? ooohhh flower" and she takes them. So this one I dug out of her toybox when she went to bed.
Enough waffling ... shall I blame the coffee? Nah its just me ... that's the problem when you can type fast, you just end up typing things as they pop into your head.
Here is my completed card
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:-
Meljen's Challenge #71 - Use Black
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Down On The Farm
Thankyou for visitng and taking the time to read my post .. I totally understand if you just skim through the waffle :)
