Oh my its winter!

Ooops where has the week gone to? Well three, yes three games of golf took up a pretty big part of it, then cooking...and well the time flew by. Here I am a week later and I finally come back!

So what else is new this week? Well it seems winter is back with us! Crikey its been mighty chilly today for sure. We didn't get all the rain we were promised, like we didn't have enough last night! I think Mr Weatherman is sending us more tomorrow - great I can't wait....

Oh we had a little visitor in the week, this little hedgehog came calling. He enjoyed the snack of cat food he had! Dudley wasn't quite so impressed as obviously he thought he should have it! Still its got to be tastier than slugs.

So a few cards to share with you - if you haven't nodded off! This is my card for this weeks challenge at Cute Daisy May This week the challenge is simply Pink and Green. So I've used Daisy May's little sister Bessie. She looks a little pensive, I wonder what she's done? Papers are some I've had for ages, Prima flowers and a sparkly brad. Punching a la Martha Stewart.

This is another pink and green card - I guess I kind of got on a roll here! I do think these colours go together especially well though. One of my current favourite stamps of the moment - a Gorguss Girl.

Do you remember me telling you I went on a demo workshop with Bev? Learning the distress ink painting technique? Well this is the card I made. I think the sketch is great and used it for my Cute Daisy May card too. So in its glory is my card! Bev posted the original on her blog the other day - If I'd been quick I could have had it on mine first! lol But I wasn'tso I didn't ;))

I plan on doing a few more like this - I really like the effect. I do still love my Copics though! I 'had' to buy some more watercolour paper today. Guess what I hope to be doing tomorrow? Well the forecast is pants!

Take care bloggettes!

Super cards. I do love that Gorguss image. I too love green and pink together (although some say they shouldn't be used together - don't know why, when there are so many pink flowers with green stems and leaves!) x
