Check it out!!

On Friday I was just 'blogging around' checking out the latest in challenges to discover that I made it in the Top 3 at Sweet Sketch Wednesday for one of my Easter cards last week!! Wahooo:) With a trip to the city for 83rd Birthday celebrations just around the corner...I was getting inspiration to create the perfect card for my wonderful nan and there I was in the Top 3!! So here is my Friday afternoon creation - with this weeks sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday (#99) I then popped over to see the latest colours at Colour Q (#82) and set out to create...mind you I was supposed to be hanging out the washing, folding, planting vegies in my vegie patch, packing for the trip to the city, wrapping pressies...and so on..but ahhh creating nan's card was so much better:)

Inside the card....

I took photos late yesterday afternoon of my creations hoping to have a chance to blog last night before setting off this morning...however those bits and pieces that I had put off earlier needed to be done! Luckily mum has internet with kiddlywinks tucked in bed, the computer is warmed up and ready and plenty of Easter chocolate to munch on and a Kahlua & milk to sip...stay tuned for other snippets of weekend craftiness:)
