Papertake Weekly & CCT Challenge Combo

Well, whilst I haven't managed to get a photo yet, I'm pleased to report that the hair is a success! Hurrah! Although, it's not quite as short as I wanted as the hairdresser bottled it a bit. That's ok though as it still looks nice. It's more of a shaggy bob now with short layers on top and quite cut in at the back. I'm very pleased :o)

I thought that I would be making loads of cards during my few days off but I have been utterly useless! The will has been there but I've been hopeless actually putting stuff together. As I always do when I get like this, I've gone back to basics and made a really simple but fun card. In the process, I also managed to combine two challenges - Papertake Weekly (fab sketch by Dawny P!) and also CCT's theme of 'Animal Magic'.

I am totally loving this image! It was one I got in a swap ages ago from Sheila and it is adorable! Once I figured out how to colour my sheepies, I was away. I love this paper as well, so bold and fun and perfect for this image. And I have to say, isn't this sketch amazing? One I shall defo be using again. Thanks Dawny!

Goodie List........
Stamps: Elzybells.
Paper: Pebbles Inc.
Ink & Colour: Copics and ProMarkers.
Embellishments: Freehand border doodle, computer generated sentiment printed on to Safmat.

Right, now I'm back in to the swing of things, I'm going to go and try to make as many cards as possible before I have to go back to work tomorrow. Boo, hiss....!

Thanks for visiting! Take care peeps,

Another fab production Stacey. Great use of bright colours. I love the subtle grey around everything and your doodling is fab. I'm going to have to use that layout too, it's great, isn't it?
