Well today my youngest daughter took me to the cinema, as her treat to see the last Harry Potter installment and what a film. There was only about 10 people in there and I am so glad as it wasn't long before the tears came. I have gone to see every one of these films since they were released and have queued at midnight in various places on the release dates for the books with my youngest daughter Lindsay so an end of an era for her. If you have seen the films you will all know Alan Rickman has played the baddie Snape and I have loved his character all the time, so couldn't believe he could be all bad and today it was uncovered that he was not the baddie everyone thought he was and so when he died and finally we discovered why he had done all the bad things I shed a few tears for Snape. And then at the end of the film when you see various favourite characters have been killed that too brought tears but for Lindsay it was the end of the film that made her cry as she said she has grown up with Harry, Ron and Hermione and they are now no more, a sad day for her and I am sure millions like her. So we came home had lunch and decided we needed cheering up so decided to do some cards although I have to say not very pleased with couple of mine but hey ho that's how it goes. I am sure J.K.Rowling had days when she didn't like what she had written about Harry and co. Will be blogging next couple of days as Lindsay is off to see her new home she is renting in Lincoln, when she returns to University later this month
This is my first card today and its for Winter Wonderland challenge and their theme this week was Trim a Tree either a tree trimmed or being trimmed. So my image is a Kars stamp and used Pro-markers to colour it it and added jewels where the lights are stringed around the tree. I have pinched some lovely bright crimbo papers from my youngest daughters stash, with her permission of course. I have added some glittered ribbon and some bright flowers and a sentiment.
My second card is for the Penny Black Challenge and this week is was a sketch and also Pro Marker Challenge which is Anything Goes and this is my take on it. So here I have used silver mirri board as my base then used some contrasting papers to do the sketch. I have used Pro-markers to colour my image in and they were Poppy, Ice Grey 1 and 2, Green, Forest Green, Mango and Blue Pearl and added my image to a die cut. I have added some Merry Christmas ribbon, some blue and red flowers and to the centre of them added some gem stars. Added a sentiment, a ribbon bow and on the corners snowmen gems.Sketch Saturday and Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which was in the sea, so here is Magnolia as a mermaid.I have used some pretty sea themed paper as my base bought this ages ago and have never used it and I remembered all about it today. Then I have added some flowers candi dots and sentiment to complete the sketch.
Here is my last card for today and it is Papertake weekly challenge and it was the sketch I have used to make the card. I have used a Molly Bloom image for this card and used blues and browns as my theme. And continued it through with the colour theme in my flowers and ribbon.
