Another weekend... another set of challenges

Well hey there peeps!

Yep - another weekend and this one has been jam packed.  My birthday was on Thursday and I've had birthday celebrations at work on Tuesday and Thursday, took Friday off to have some "me" time and now today I'm being treated by my folks to a bonsai for my birthday before we go out to a swanky restaurant for dinner with the family.  I haven't got the foggiest which restaurant it is - my DH has done all the booking and arranging and I will apparently get ushered into the car at the appropriate time and driven there.  Yayyyy!!!

So that's my week - hope yours has been as eventful and as fun!

Now, onto the challenges!  I have put my name down for blog candy at Charmed Cards & Crafts, just because I can, and because I adore the Gorjuss images.  So fingers crossed the random number generator chooses my number (47).

Now, I coloured this image a while ago:

Isn't he just gorgeous???  The image is from the Emerald Faerie Garden shop and you can find these guys, Boo and Snookie, here.
I used these Copics to colour: E34 and E77 for the snail; YR01 for the skin; YR24 and YR09 for the clothes and wings; E19 for his hair.  And lots and lots of blender pen!!!

And then I made it into a card - and I am quite pleased how it's turned out:

I used some new flowers I got from Petaloo, some leaves and brads from my stash, backed it all onto a page out of the 6x6 paper pad "Imported Rhythm" by Black Market Paper Society and mounted it onto a piece of Stampin Up cardstock in Really Rust.  The sentiment is from the Stampin Up set "Best Yet" and I used both of the tag punches from Stampin Up to mount them.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodle - In the Garden
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Whatever You Fancy
Poodles Parlour - Round and Round the Garden
Stamp Something - Use a Digi Stamp

And that's my lot for now - I'm off to hit the treadmill so I can justify whatever it is I'm going to indulge in tonight for dinner - 'cos I'm not holding back, LOL!

Until next time,
Happy Crafting!

    Love that image and you've coloured it amazingly as usual. I see you've found a few challenges to enter. I warn you again my friend, it's addictive! My guess is you'll be on a Design Team before you know it!

  5. Hi Bron, how are you enjoying the challenges? they're fun, arent they? Good luck, I hope 47 is lucky for you, but you know when you least expect it a win comes in and you won't believe your luck! I agree with Casey, you're destined for a design team somewhere. Love this card, you got such a great look with so few colours, that's not easy, I can't do it. CoB
