I'm Alive & Just To Prove It Here Is A Card Lol!

Good morning all. I cannot believe it has been nearly three months since I last posted but hopefully that is all about to change!!

This week at Moving Along With The Times they have the challenge of 'Cute As A Button' and it was just what I needed to get me crafting again. I must admit it took me a while to colour this simple image in as I haven't coloured for so long lol. I desperately need to get back into it as I now have all the new Flexmarkers unused oh dear and ordered the new L.E Spring colours as well as some more Promarkers which I didn't have and they should arrive today or tomorrow. 

I used this great sketch from Sketch & Stash Challenge to help complete this card.

I have used these new bargain papers I got on Monday, they are from Craft Creation's and were only 15p for a 12" x 12" sheet and came in stripes, spots and checks. I brought 40 sheets in all the colours and style's they had, it just has to be done lol.

6" Square Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Papers - Craft Creation's
Ribbon - Stash
Button - Echo Park
Twine - My Craft Spot
Glossy Accents for the wings - Ranger 

Promarkers Used:-
Yellow, Lemon, Primrose, Black, Cool Grey 5, 3, 2, Warm Grey 4 & Cocktail Pink
Terracotta, Honeycomb, Spice, Oatmeal

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
Sketch & Stash - Sketch
Moving Along With The Times - Cute As A Button
Crafts & Me - Things With Wings
Crafty Creations - Stripes
I Love Promarkers - Ribbons & Bows
That Crafty Place - Anything Goes

I still some issues to sort with my health and now my house has sold so need to find somewhere else to live which I am not looking forward to but everything is finally going in the right direction!!

Oh and I have to tell you my hubby surprised me with a trip to the London Lyceum Theatre yesterday to see The Lion King and wow what a fabulous show it was and I have to say if any of you who are disabled are considering going, the service from the staff is impeccable. As they didn't have a disabled space available when booked they offered a concessional seat price to transfer from my wheelchair into an aisle seat and they would take care of my chair. My chair was brought to me at each interval and immediately at the end of the show. They even kept the aisle clear until I was transported out AMAZING I have never had this kind of service anywhere before.

Thank you for popping by and I just want to let you know I have been popping by all your wonderful blogs just not been up to leaving comments.
