My Challenge Card
This Weeks Sketch
Good Morning Ladies,
We had a lovely time meeting with Paul's family for lunch yesterday, we just don't get time to meet up with family often enough, due to Paul's shift pattern and the girl's busy schedule, so its always a treat when we do! I have to say though the roast lunch wasn't up to much, my children are huge roast potato fans, now we only use Beef dripping or goose fat to cook them in and Maris Pipers only!! My lot love them so much they leave them till last to eat !! So they were a little disappointed when they tried the ones at the hotel their faces were a picture, they were hard on the outside and just dry in the middle, the meat was good though, as were the starter and dessert! Sadly we had to leave quite early as it's an hour and a half drive home and Paul had to get ready and be in work for 6:30pm, so it was a bit of a mad dash!
This weeks sketch is quite simple, the three boxes could have anything in them, three buttons or flowers, even words or birds/butterflies, that part is up to you. I ended up having to put together super quick after we got back from Birmingham and I got the girls so food etc and packed Matt off for another week.
But you can get the idea, after I published Brenda's tip yesterday about using Alcohol pens to colour ribbon I tried it out, I had nothing that really matched the Blue of the Floral Pavilion that I have under, so I got a promarker and coloured the flower trim blue to match, I like the results!! That trim and the flower trim that I cut the three white flowers in the boxes both come from Amanda Charlesworth's store on fb,such good value and amazing quality, Janet, Cheryl & Lynda will all agree !
I added some tiny blue Acrylic Flowers for the centres, they are so cute!
I hope that my card gives you a little inspiration.
Lilian, we are all thinking about you sweetheart, this next few days will be tough, we are all here for you my lovely xxx
Have a great day ladies,
Love and hugs
