Ah. Peace. Perfect Peace.

Scott is out playing (in the rain), Craig has gone to Boys' Brigade and Andy has gone to the shops. I have switched the tv off so there isn't a sound in here. And do you know what, it's lovely :) Normally I'd stick some music on but I'm enjoying the silence.

My friend Sandra was round on Saturday evening for a spot of crafting and I coloured in this little lady so that I could enter the SN Facebook challenge - these were last week's colours. I'm not so sure about this card but never mind. I did post it on the group on Sunday and said that it needed something else.  The consensus was that it needed a sentiment so I added one. And a a couple of flowers, and a tiny tag..... I'm not sure I like it any better though but I don't want to hurt Little Star's feelings so we'll just say it's lovely ;)

I'm going to do some crafting shortly. I spent most of the afternoon ironing and watching The Big Bang Theory. BBT almost made the ironing pleasant. Almost.  However, that was only half the ironing, there is still another mountain waiting to be tackled.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

The Sugar Bowl - Sketch and optional theme of swirls
Crazy Challenge - Feminine/Girly
Paper Pretties - Card for a Girl
Fussy and Fancy - Punches and Dies
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards - Bingo (Pearls, Punches and Flowers)
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
OSAAT - Anything Goes

No new products were harmed in the making of this card! Use It Up 2012. Image - Little Star, Funky Kits coloured with Promarkers, Sentiments, Stampin Up
Cardstock/Paper - From stash
Embellishments - Pearls and flowers from stash
Tools - Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties, Big Shot, Jewelry Tag punch, Stampin Up

Thanks for dropping by today. Enjoy your evening. I'm off to make the most of the silence :) 

Hugs. Susan xxx

Too adorable! Love the color combo and sweet image. Also like how you used the flourish for the stem of the flower, very clever! Great job on our bingo game, and hope you play along again soon at CC&CC. Aloha!

Hi Susan, awwww so sweet! Love the Gorjuss girls (saw they are on sale at Funky Kits and am tempted!!) and your colours are a great combo.

Know just what you mean about adding and adding and adding to a card and still not being happy with it! I think it's great tho.


PS - We are a household of BBT fans as well! Well technically hubbie is a bigger fan than me, but I like too!!

I think your card is wonderful!! I think we are all critical of our makes from time to time and sometimes we just can't like a card no matter how much we "tweak" it.

I really love this colour combo and layout and I don't think it needs anything else at all.

Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.

Michelle :o)
