3 in 1 Challenge Card ...

Cor blimey, i've not managed one of these in a while ... a 3 in 1! I've completed Papertake Weekly Challenge which is "Shoe Time" So anything shoe-ey goes ... i.e. a shoe shaped card, an image, a shoe sentiment, anything at all. Colour Create #19 "Blush Pink, Lilac and Mossy Green" and for the extra option ... use die cuts on your card or project (and these can be cut with a machine or precut in a sheet). And lastly Willow Sketchie Challenge 11th June 09 ... this weeks sketchie has been supplied by Zoe.
Absolutely loved this sketch and will be definitely one that i shall use again ... although i say that and most of the time never end up doing so, cos i find yet another sketch that i like and end up making a card with that one instead!

CS ~ Stash
DP's ~ Free download called Daydream

Image ~ Sketching Stamper Digi-stamp, coloured with Whisper Strokes and blinged with glitter within an inch of its life!
Glitter ~ Stash
Gems ~ Anita's from Reams
Sentiment ~ PC Generated
Stitching ~ Sewing Machine
Lacey Stuff ~ RAK from Diane
Decorated the inside with more of the same paper ... only cos this one was originally the piece i'd printed out for the front and then decided i didn't like the wording i'd put along the bottom whilst playing in Paint Shop Pro ... dont think i'm ever gonna get the hang of that program! I used another image that i printed out smaller and coloured in, but this time instead of using the glitter i used my Sakura Stardust Pens. The flower was from a RAK i recieved from the lovely Diane, i dunno what i'm gonna do when they run out!
So, on to the Beth update .... she arrived home last night at dead on curfew time {claps} and toddles of upstairs to my sister to ask her how she had done at WW. This is sooo funny .... she says to my sis "what did you lose at fat club?" ... sis replies "Weight" ... Beth sits down on the bed! Sis says "what you doing" ... Beth says "waiting for you to tell me how you did at fat club!" ROFLMAO!!!! classic! She managed to get up for work and went off in her little car ... no further updates as yet cos she'll only just've finished her second job as a waitress that she does on a Thursday evening after working at nursery and all day on a Sunday. It tops up her pitiful apprenticeship wages of £85 per week! .... to be continued .....
