De Jas Vous

Hello everyone, another quick share. Dare I say that the packing is no further forward than yesterday, lots of little piles scattered across the dressing room but that's about it.

Sods law we have been really busy at work and it was nine before I finished last night and this morning had been earmarked to take Anysia to college to see the one and only Mary King do a fantastic's not every day you get to see an Olympic multi gold medal winner in the flesh and for Anysia who has only just got the OK from the hospital to start gentle riding again, it was a not to be missed occasion.

Hands up that my card may well yell de jas vous at lots of you, but I had the image all coloured up so went with it. But the colours are different from yesterdays card, so I figure that counts as different enough.

The image is one of the lovely Sweet Pea stamps.......I had a little delivery this morning, part the prize I won from Crafts and Me plus one or two I 'needed', but stamping them up will have to wait until after our hols. Finding Crafts and Me led me to their challenge which is new to me, they have a great sketch this week which I followed for my card.

The image is coloured with Copics, the DP Basic Grey, borders punched with Martha Stewart garden trellis and the peach rose is Magnolia. Liberal helpings of glitter and another rather too speedy card, but needs must and packing is essential else I shall end up with half of what I need never making it to the boat.

My card is for the following challenges:

Crafts and Me - Sketch

Belli Challenge - Something that moves (fairies wings)

Creative Cottage - Touchy Feely, texture, ribbons, flowers

Wild Flower Patch - Lace and Sparkle

Don't forget that I have a very special post scheduled for Friday, a little treat for you all when I am away.

Love these last two cards Brenda. Amazing how a change of colours can make them look different. They're both gorgeous though.

So glad to hear Anysia is being allowed to get back in the saddle! Good luck with the packing.
