Lazy Day Today.

Well today my two daughters and I have had a mini crafting session this afternoon as I had to wait until lunch-time to do anything as the gas man was coming about new heating system, so he went and we had a quick snack for lunch then down to it. We will not be having many more, maybe just the one as my eldest daughter is going back home to Stoke on Sunday, to her hubby Steven who is so sweet, and who has probably had a proper man week, playing on his Xbox, PS3 and watching as much Top Gear on TV that he could find and eating things with garlic in! We will probably go out for the last time tomorrow as younger daughter Lindsay is celebrating her 19th birthday on Sunday, so will have to go and buy her a pressie I suppose. Think we may end the day by going down to the beach tomorrow night and walk along the prom with a bag of chips, yummy. Having now said that it will probably pour down. Anyway down to my cards for today.
Here is my first creation from today's craft session and it is a doubler entry for Lili of the Valley Challenge which was roses, so have used this cute little bear image holding out a rose on his balcony sweet and then I am also putting this card in for Chaisma Cardz Challenge which was bingo, where you had to use three items in vertical or horizontal fashion. So I have used as my three items squares, ribbon and flowers in a vertical fashion, the square is a die cut but hope it is allowed. So I have used pinks and greens here picking the colours out of my base paper, added lovely green satin ribbon and a couple of lovely pink and green flowers and added a thank you sentiment .
Here is my card for two challenges which is Lollipop Challenge which was Celebration, so it's a birthday card and also for I Love Pro-markers challenge which was wings. So I have used a Magnolia image because she has wings in this image, I am not to keen on this card, feel it lacks something but don't know what? Started it off well using lovely bright colours then seemed to loss my mojo a bit, could have been due to eldest daughter moaning and groaning in the background with bad stomach! So added some candi dots, ribbon and sentiment and the Pro-markers used were, violet, tulip yellow, cerise, ice grey 1 and 2 spice, caramel, vanilla and royal blue.
