Sunday, 4 November 2012


Hi, we've had a busy Sunday, about a month ago we started decorating our bedroom, but we only get Sunday off work so it seems to have been going on forever, tada its finished well almost just got to get a new light fitting to put up and then its done. I must say it looks great, the rest of the house looks bad now though, but were coming up to our busy time at work so were not starting anything else untill way after Christmas.
I made this card one night in the week but only just got round to photographing it, I hate taking photo's at night, seems to drain the colour or cast shadows, well enough of me winging.
This is a Pink ink digi, coloured with copics as usual, paper artsy papers, memory box bunting die, nesties, green gems and glitter on his hat and mistletoe, but you can't see it.
Hope you have all had a good weekend
