Anniversary Cuteness from Sonia
Good Morning Ladies,
I hope yesterday's challenge doesn't have you too befuddled!!!
I have been desperate to share this gorgeous Anniversary card that Paul and I recvieved from our Sonia, you just can't beat a Lilli of Valley image for 'cuteness',
their stamps are just so adorable, my only wish is that they still did the Art pads as I am not too accomplished at colouring, I can manage the basics but despite watching many tutorials I can't get things like hair to look realistic, I watch with envy as people make dresses look like they are almost moving with the amazing shading skills.
Sonia teaming this image with the dark grey and using a silver grey for accents was genius, it works so well, drawing out the colour of the little lad's suit and shoes.
I love the little 'Happy Anniversary' embellishment too, it looks like its handmade, you are such a talented card maker Sonia! We both loved your card, thank you for your kindness xxxx
I had another blog post idea yesterday, "Frugal Fridays" , I would like to feature things like card making ideas using scraps or leftover bits of card, money saving ideas, upcycling ideas for gifts etc, storage ideas. Basically any ideas for saving money, leaving more for stash, has to be a win, win, right?
I would like it to be interactive so we can all share ideas, whether its a money off code or sale on somewhere, down to your frugal crafting ideas.
We have a busy day today, Paul is sleeping off nights, Sue is coming over to play, we then have to collect Sophie from her 'life drawing' class (this is her second class, I am hoping she will have gotten over the embarrassment this week, she did make us chuckle when she said "but mum, he is just so confident", I can't wait to see her finished piece, she is doing some incredible portrait pieces at the moment).
We then have to be at Gatwick between 12 and 1am to collect Becca & Josh from their holiday. Paul did say that I didn't have to go with him, but I would rather go along, just to keep him company and make sure he doesn't nod off, for my peace of mind really, plus if I didn't go I would sit here getting myself into a right anxious mess!
It just means it will be about 3am before we get home. Paul is off on Wednesday though so we can have a lazy day.
Pat, I will be thinking of you and Pete today, its going to be a tough day for both of you, try and stay positive, sending you huge hugs xxxx
Janet, I hope all is well sweetheart, sending huge hugs to you too xxxx
Love and hugs to all of you,
