live, laugh, party

Morning girls
It's another damp, dismal one here in Glasgow.  Nothing new there then eh?  One of these morning I'll waken to brilliant sunshine!!  Well a girl can dream can't she?  We've had it all this weekend, from torrential downpours to bright sunshine all the while a wind that would cut you in two!  All seasons in one day!!

It's time for a new challenge over on Karen's Doodles and this week our theme is



Now it's been years since I've made on of these cards.  Don't ask me why this shape popped into me head but it did and I must say I quite enjoyed putting it together:) I even managed to get some decent pics despite the weather.  My last few have been terrible which makes the cards look bad too although this bottom one could've been a bit better.

I've used two of Karen's newest images on this card.  Beat the Heat on the front and  Boating Fun on the inside, both of them available from the store.
Coloured with copics, prisma pencils and I tried on of the new techniques Zoe and her team are showing over on Make It Crafty which is to use a white gel pen to add water droplets although I'm not quite sure I managed it successfully lol. Papers are from Pink Petticoat, sentiment is Sparkle n Sprinkle and the other bits and bobs are from me stash.
So, that's my effort, do pop over to the challenge blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the other Doodle Divas, even better, why not play along for the chance to win some of these fab images.
Thanks for stopping by Anne x
