Had a lovely day yesterday with my friend Irene as we went to a stamping workshop in Cricklade. Can't believe how time flew and in 3 hours I had only made 2 cards! Well that's nattering for you. There where a lot of talented ladies at the workshop who had lots of ideas and produced some lovely cards. Decided to have a go at the challenge over at http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/ . But having completed a card am feeling a bit down as not really happy with it at all and don't feel I'm getting any better:( (will get over feeling poor poor me in a bit!!). I have spent so long blog hopping seeing some wonderful work I do get frustrated that I can;t seem to produce any thing like what I see. Oh well more practise needed....
Did buy 5 more promarkers yesterday and have had a colour today so that has been good - really wish I could find a pink that I liked - If anyone can recommend one please let me know!
Used pastel blue for jeans, soft lime & lemon for top, amethyst & carmine on the flowers, hair lemon,yellow & satin. I ended up with very limey fingers as I coloured the ribbon and the raffia to try to match. But still not happy. Going to cook a late supper and have a hop later to try to learn a bit more.
Hope everyone has a good week ahead .... Just looked out of my window and we have snow here in Gloucestershire!! Yippee!!!
