Today was the most glorious autumn day - you'd never think that only 3 hours away towns are flooded and an island off the coast of a town only 4 hours away in the other direction is in shambles thanks to Cyclone Ita last weekend. But here, it was gorgeous sunny weather, with a cool breeze. Such a shame to be working hard inside my office all day!
Tonight I finally decided to bite the bullet and. Make a pink card for the current challenge at Mo's DP blog which is Perfectly Pinkalicious with a Mo image. I always struggle with pink and flowers and pink and busy and pink (!!!) - must be from living so long in a home dominated by muddy foot and paw prints, fur, laundry and lego! Surely! I swear I thought I was a girly girl but I definitely feel much more comfortable with splatters, distressing, paint, ink and masculine tones! One of the criteria for the Sketch N Stash challenge is to use "new or neglected" stash items, and for me I have used flowers (severely neglected!) and the spring border die that I had forgotten I had, not sure if I'd ever used it before now! Potentially purchased c.2011 so we will also call it a neglected item! :)
I've tried to give a bit of a 3d effect with the grass that this little one is playing in.
