Moving Along With The Times Va Va Voom

Well I can't say good morning because this weather is absolutely dreadful and so so cold, what a comparison from last week! I really hope the weather warms up for those of you going away for the Easter Holidays.

I am still on the hunt for a new house without too much luck but thanks to my Moving Along team mate's Lisa Jane's comment last week I now have the Occupational Therapist on the case so thanks Lisa. I hadn't even given them a thought, probably because the O.T assigned to me once out of hospital was so unhelpful!, luckily she has moved on and the new one seem's far nicer much like the original one I had whilst in hospital.

Right onto the matter in hand this week at Moving Along With The Times Shell set us the challenge of Va Va Voom (Sexy Ladies) and who better to sponsor us than Kenny K Designs

I have used the fabulous Bodacious Bev which I coloured with both Promarkers & Flexmarkers. Having made the card I was going to leave it without a sentiment until needed but a friend called by, saw it and asked if she could have it for her husband. She picked this sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs to go with it and it makes me chuckle each time I read it.

This card is so sassy and cool. The sentiment is awesome and goes perfectly with the card. The colours are perfect for this card as well. I just love KennyK images but don't have the colouring ability to use them :(

I hope the weather has improved in your neck of the woods and good luck in finding a new place as well.

Thanks so much for entering your card at Anything goes, Just keep on creating. I hope you will continue to play along.
