Hi everyone, another overcast day today. My friend Fran came and picked me up early and we went to Diabetic House so I could sign up for membership and buy a glucose monitor etc. I've signed up for some classes too so I get a better idea of what to do or not to do! Fran wants to come with me as she is now glucose intolerant and wants to put off getting diabetes as long as possible.
Came home and did a bit of shopping and then back here. Jane came over so we could have our normal craft at my place instead of hers as my DIL asked me to look after the baby and the nearly 7 year old girl. My other granddaughter was supposed to come, but ended up going over the other grandma's house. My husband came home from work in time to take Amelia off to the playground for 30 mins before Mum came back to pick them up.
We usually go out with friends for tea but they are away for a month, so we decided to stay home instead. Hope you all had a good day whether at work or play.
Onto my card...
I've made this one to enter the Less Is More Challenge Week 35, needs to be Clean & Simple
Here we are again and it's time for another COLOUR challenge.
This week we have chosen
THE COLOUR OF YOUR EYES
Well, my eyes are brown so therefore my card is a combination of shades of brown.
The cardbase is SU Chocolate Chip cardstock, I used a Nellie Snellen die to cut the heart out in SU Creamy Caramel. The image is from Creative Expressions set called Elegant Ladies. I stamped it onto white card with Basic Grey ink and coloured with Marvy Markers for the dress (Ochre, Brown and Dark Brown) and the flower (Green and Lilac) The hair and skin were coloured with Copics. I added light brown bling to the dress. The sentiment is also from SU and was inked with the Dark Brown Marvy Marker.
I had already posted the scan of the card, but it was really streaky so have come back with a photo which is much better and edited this post. The dress is still not quite the right colour, IRL it is an orangy brown.
Thanks for stopping by and to those who leave comments I appreciate them very much and enjoy reading what you have to say.
I'm also going to enter it into the Make It Monday Challenge #57 - Anything Goes
