Hi everyone!

I've still got a few remnants of the flu hanging around but thankfully I'm feeling a bit better, hopefully it won't take long to kick the rest of it away!

Not a lot else to report so I suppose no news is good news!

We do have another new challenge to start today at the Alphabet Challenge Blog.  The challenge, chosen by the lovely Mari is...

Z for Zig Zags!

Now, as it turns out, the card I made for our last challenge would've fitted this one nicely too, so I unconsciously decided to stick to the general theme of it and made a remarkably similar card!  (remember I have the flu so the old brain hasn't been working the best!  That's also my excuse for my dodgy photos, I wasn't actually drunk when I took them!)
Here's my card:

Similar papers and a similar layout but I quite liked the first one, so I suppose why not do it again! lol!
The image is Sunny Patch by Whimsy Stamps which I coloured with the following promarkers: Magenta, Carmine, Cerise, Leaf green, Meadow green, Sunkissed pink, Oatmeal & Blush.

The papers are again from Pink Petticoat and the sentiment is also a digi from Tiddly Inks (was possibly a freebie?)  The dies are a mixture of Cheery Lynn Designs, Cuttlebug and Spellbinders.
The ricrac and the butterfly are from my stash and I used a white gel pen to doodle the dots around the pink layers and filled the heart with glamour dust.

Again, the inside matches the front.

So let us see your zig zags and join in with us at the Alphabet Challenge Blog!
