Papertake Weekly/Forever Friends Challenges

(****Please scroll down for challenges****)

Hi everyone, what a freezing day it is here! omg did I get a shock when I went out in it this morning!. I went to the post office this morning, as people who know me well know I am awful at going to the post office, its just something that isnt natural to me, even though its essential, its not a lazy thing just something I dont seem to do often! lol,so if you are awaiting anything from me rest assured it was posted this morning, all weighed and correct stamps I do hate that bit it took me 10 mins to put all my cards through the slots lol, the poor post lady her staff have called in sick the queue was going out of the door, and she said there sick, we were the only ones in the queue who didnt moan about being in a queue, "they want to go shopping" she said, bless I really felt for her as she was so rushed of her feet!. Hopefully she will be blessed with a relaxing christmas.Talking of post! where are my stamps????????? I am not so patiently waiting for them now! my email to say dispatched was sent 2 days ago grump! :O(

I am having a rather lazy day, and my inspiration seems to have gone on its christmas holidays early!!! I do hate it when it goes and doesnt want to play, so I have made a couple of challenges and I am thinking of the others.

Papertake Weekly
This week there is another fabulous sketch by dawny, I do love dawnys sketches as there are many different elements, my card is a bit more plainer than I would have liked!I coloured the image with promarkers, and edged it with some swirls, ink and red watercolour. I added some gems to the top corner, and the rest follows the sketch. I hope its ok.

Forever Friends Challenge

This week the challenge is "not to make a card" Hmmmmm, ok so I have given the candle another bash, Being the inspiration isnt there, I think its decorated a bit basic but I hope to play more with these. I hope you like:-
