Saturday :)

Hiya Everyone, Hope you all ok today, looks like the heavens are about to open here! I was planning a full day of craft, but my sister is starting to have pains and such, so I am on standby incase I need to go, I wish we deffo knew if he was making his entrance today or not lol, she is just under 3 weeks early so maybe just braxton hicks, I dunno! My two girlies ended up in A&E last night, Syds fell over the fence and got caught up in it, and Ella headbutted the TV unit, gawd I was so panicked! both ok just a little bruised bless them, whilst they were gone, Niall saved me from a mahoosive spidee bless him he put a cup over it and I put a cup over the wasp, when Mart got back he removed them both, still alive too lol.

Anyhow...
I made this card which fits a couple of challenges I will list at the bottom
The image is the gorgeous Shy Little Nickie from Inky Impressions she is just the cutest!!! I coloured her up with alcohol pens, cant remember which. You can get her HERE
The papers from my stash, and the sentiment is also from Inky Impressions I cut it down the full sentiment should read "Life is Sweet, Drink it Up" you can find it HERE. A few embellies and a sizzlitt swirl.

I am entering this into

Fab colour combo! The greys of the image are fab next to the slightly more colourful papers.
