Jekhotar/Spoonful of Sugar Challenge

What a dreadful week, im so glad its the weekend again! What with having the children sick all week, then yesterday i got it again. Thats twice already, i apologise for the lack of blog hopping and comments. I tried to get round as many as i could, but did have to face defeat and go to bed. I havn't felt much like making cards and the mojo has completely gone. I made 2 cards only by following the sketches provided. Both are basic and i apologise for the terrible photos. Hopefully the weekend will bring with it new inspiration!!! Hope you are all well, and for any one suffering the same nasty bugs my thoughts are with you, drink plenty of hot chocolate and have lots of hot baths, it works for me!



SPOONFUL OF SUGAR CHALLENGE


This was an image given to me in a swap, im not sure what make it is. Rather her than me, i don't do exercise! Coloured using my SU Brush Markers. The ribbons i think come from Poppicrafts, and the papers are Imanginese and K & Co. Sentiment brought from Anna-Marie Designs.















JEKHOTAR CHALLENGE

This is my entry into Jekhotars challenge, i love this Melinda image, and i got to use up some scraps of paper. The image was coloured using my promarkers and some sakura glitter pens. The sentiment is a K & Co sticker.
