It's Not Even Easter!

Sunday, 5 May 2013

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all well.  Not a lot to report at the moment.  Was another busy week at work and I was totally knackered on Friday night.  I'm off tomorrow though and I'm gonna go and meet my best friend for some lunch - I haven't seen her in ages and I'm looking forward to seeing how far along her bump is getting! ;)
Also I'm so excited to receive the fantastic blog candy that I won over at Fab N Funky!!

But, on to another challenge for the Pink Team at Eclectic Ellapu, and we have a theme for you this week that everyone loves!  It is...

Anything Goes!

I made my card for a friends birthday a month-or-so ago, hence the Eastery image!

Here it is

The image is, of course, from Saturated Canary and she's called Murray.  I coloured her with the following Copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E44,43,42,41. Clothes; R24,22,21,RV32,29,25,YR7,04,02,Y15,13,11,YG07,05,03. Grass;G09,07,05,00,E44.

It reminds me of our Easter Sunday when we have a traditional egg throw.  We pick somewhere as our goal and the winner is the best of 3 at who can get the closest to the goal when throwing our individually boiled and decorated eggs.  This year, our "goal" was a lump of snow! Lol!  I won the "Egg Cup" last year but didn't do very well this year with my gammy shoulder.  I will have to get into training for next year!

Anyway, back to the card!  The papers are Hello Luscious by Basic Grey.  Dies I used are Spellbinders ovals and scalloped ovals, Crafty Sentiments Designs- Fancy Hearts border and Magnolia swirl doohickey.  The sentiment is by Waltzing Mouse and I added some swarovski's to it, although they're hard to make out.  I also added some flowers, ribbon and a charm (also with a swarovski stuck to it) from my stash.

The inside is done to match the front with a Wild Rose Studio sentiment.

So I hope you like my Anything Goes card - go take a look at what the rest of the DT did at Eclectic Ellapu!
