Happy Friday! I hope you have had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend. Here's hoping that the weather in the UK improves, although it couldn't be much worse for June!! It's been a trying week in our house. The terrible twos are definitely upon us and Thomas is now capable of throwing a spectacular tantrum at the drop of a hat which is fine when we are at home but not so much fun when we are out. Any tips on how to manage these outbursts will be gratefully received.
I have managed to make two cards tonight - a first for me I think. I completely fell in love with this LOTV image when I first saw it and it is such a dream to colour I had to do one in blue and one in pink.
For my blue card I used the sketch on this weeks LOTV challenge. The papers are DCWV Linen Closet (again) and I've added a charm and flowers which were a birthday present from Angela.
I'm entering this card in quite a few challenges:
Lili of the Valley - Sketch
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Floral Delights
Stampavie & More - Dots
Simon Says Stamp - Recipe
Charisma Cardz - Spots and Stripes
Totally Gorjuss - For the Boys
My pink card is my first ever entry in the Clean & Simple challenge. It was hard not to add the usual embellishments and as you can see I did add a few pearls; I couldn't help myself! The paper is by Paper Salon and the sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio. I'm also going to enter this card in the Stamp Something challenge (Happy Somethings).
I hope you all have a lovely weekend. We're going to a barbeque tomorrow where there will be a bouncy castle and lots of other children so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Thomas will behave himself!!
