Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start, don't know where this week has gone and I haven't managed that much blog commenting I'm afraid, hopefully will catch up very soon. On to Challenge 32 at BasicGrey which this week is a sketch challenge by me. Hope you like it and that you'll be able to join us this week. There's great inspiration from my DT friends, I love how they all interpreted the sketch in their own wonderfully unique ways and as always there's a lovely prize to be won.
I've used a cute Magnolia image which has been watercoloured with distress inks and then cut out and mounted over layers of BG Lime Ricky paper all of which has been distressed on the edges and violet Core'dinations card. I added the flowers, a MS punched strip and some dots on the pp with a sparkly gel pen. Finished off with a woodware sentiment and some doodlebug candy dots.
I thought I'd show a couple of other pictures today, they're not that great as I had to take them with the zoom on and through the kitchen window! We have a pair of Robins that have nested in our garden, the first fledgling left the nest yesterday and headed straight for the patio much to the concern of the parents. It's so cute, tiny and funny, seems to be all head and mouth and very long legs! It did a few falling over backwards somersaults when it's mother/father fed it and tried to encourage it into the shrubbery where it did eventually go. The parents have been flying about and doing their warning dances and also trying to feed the others that must be still in the nest. I'm as worried about them as the parents are as there are cats on both sides of us and one already knows where the nest is even though our dog has seen it off several times! I hope their babies survive. Sorry, another long post from me! See you tomorrow with my Colour Create card. TFL. Chris x
