Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #17

Oh Gosh, where does the day go? I'm rather late with this but better late than never! Michele has dreamt up another fab challenge over at Crafts 4 Eternity this week. The challenge this week is to:-

1. follow the terrific sketch (I really like this one)

2.use your favourite colour

3.add some brackets.

In the artificial light, it is hard to tell that my favourite colour is actually pink. Depending on my mood it can be light pink, or as in this case, cerise. Strangely however, last week when we used a colour we weren't keen on I discovered I had loads of mustard amongst my DPs. This week I find I have very little pink. A discrepancy that needs rectifying me thinks!! These DPs are by Cherry Arte. The brackets were created with a Nestie, Labels Eight.
I coloured my image with Promarkers. I made the flower with retro flower punches. To create the pattern I further punched the pink flower with the Martha Stewart Double Loops corner punch that my wonderful bogging buddy, Dena, sent me for Xmas. I glittered the swirls & the brads with Stickles, then managed to squirt it over the ribbon, so ended up glittering that too!!

This little lady is from the Manga collection at Sugar Nellie. I'd been hankering after a sugar fix, as I hadn't had one for a while! I also want to enter this into the Passion for Promarkers challenge this week, where the theme is 'girls, girls, girls'.

Well there you go. I hope everyone is having a good weekend. We had a guest pass for a David Lloyd centre today were I played squash, went in the gym & did some swimming. Now I'm aching! But I need to get fit. At work we are doing an indoor triathlon for Sports Relief in March. This involves 1000m on the rower, 20Km on the bike & a 2 mile run! Why did I say Yes to that? Am I mad?!!

Anyway, I'll just have a glass of wine to take the pain away. Jackie & Kylie, I'm joining you in spirit if not in body, LOL!! Go pay these two lovely ladies a visit, their creations are fabulous.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Sorry for the length of this post. Thanks for looking & bearing with me.

Big Hugs,
Andie xx
