Colour create & sketch saturday challenge!

I wanted to use another of my gorguss girl images that I got recently from Funky Kits {they have set's 1 & 2 now in stock} so I set about making a card for this weeks sketch saturday. I was also inspired to make a card using the colours over at colour create this week as I have never used this colour combination before. So I ended up with a 2 in 1 card!

I coloured my gorguss girl in with a mixture of distress inks, watercolour pencils and my trusty whispers. As soon as I saw the colour challenge at colour create I knew which papers I was going to use. I have a few scraps of these papers leftover from the papermania retro floral pad. CS is DCWV. The sentiment is from hero arts, adhesive pearls / pearl brad from papermania and flowers from prima and making memories! I love these felt flowers from making memories, I've only got a few left though! :-( I finished off the card by inking the edges with a pink inkpad.

Well I had a really good day at work today and wish I had stayed there to be honest!! When I got home I accidentally deleted the first episode of Lost from the Planner on sky {I don't know what I was thinking, it was a total acccident and stupid mistake!} and my OH has gone absolutley mad at me & is now not speaking to me! I don't know what he wants me to do apart from apologise, it's not as if I did it deliberately. I'm angry with myself as well for doing something so silly, but lets keep it in context here, it's a TV programme, no one's died and it's not the end of the world!!

Sorry for ranting it's just it's upset me a bit. It's my DO tomorrow as well and I hope the silent treatment doesn't spill over to tomorrow and spoil it!! :-(

Hope you are all well, I've been hopping around to see you all these past few days and there are some stunning creations. All the sunshine we had over the BH weekend must have kicked your mo jo's into overdrive!! :-)

Hugs, Vicky -x-

Gorgeous card Vicky, I love the image and the papers you have used, and as for Lost you can always get it on DVD if it is that important, my sky box packed in and I lost everything, so it is best to back them up anyway :)

Oh hun your card is super delish, love the papers, how perfect are they!!! Fab image too! Have a good day off hun!

Top tip, when you have recorded something you wanna keep, go into planner and high light the programme and press the blue button, it keeps it till you decided to get rid......Oh I have been in your shoes LOL, they are so annoying with their telly, drives me mad!!!
