Happy World Cardmaking Day!!!

Good afternoon, I hope wherever you are, you have stopped doing the ironing, feeding the kids, cleaning the loo and are making a card, lol? Well, the weather here has been so pants today, thats how I am spending my afternoon. I was dragged around the shops this morning by Jessie with a large wad of money burning a hole in her purse. After several girly shops, I managed to get my own back and went into a craft shop where money did exchange hands, lol!

Anyway, I am rather pleased with my little card above. I brought this beautiful image from the LOTV stand at Alexandra Palace last weekend, she is called 'Christmas Magic' . Three others, came home with me too, they are such fabulous images to play with.

I am going to enter my card into the following challenges :-

CES Challenge - 'Get a Hat'

Totally Papercrafts Challenge - 'The Great Outdoors'

Good for you Heidi, why do the kids always bleed us dry LOL. Fab card, so pretty. You asked about the aquamarkers. I was a copic/promarker girl and don't do a lot of watercolouring but went and bought the whole set of aquamarkers and just love them. Best of both worlds using a promarker just with a damp brush and you can mix the colours on a pallet for different shades. IMO they are fantastic and so much easier to use than distress inks. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have fun with the new stash
