Where Has The Week Gone?

I can't believe it's been a week since I blogged! Well, I had a great day with my cousin last Thursday and spent the week-end visiting my mum and David's family. This week's just flown by even though I don't seem to have done much.

During this last week, 2 of my friends have had birthdays. Here's the cards I made for them.

I used purple checked paper, purple pearlised paper, ribbon brad, fibres and (saving the best till last) Dottie. I coloured Dottie in using my brush markers. Looking at the card, I need more practice. I hope the birthday girl forgives me as this was one of the first images I coloured in. I have my watercolour pencils now and have seen some tutorials as to how to use both.

Just in case you don't already know, Dottie and George have their own blog now. Check it out here.

To make this card, I've torn strips of contrasting papers and stuck them onto a green card. I coloured a Dottie using my brush markers, layered her on orange and green paper and stuck to the card using foam pads. Buttons were added as finishing touch. I handwrote the sentiment which says "I've worked out....." and inside it says "it's your birthday!" I hope the latest birthday girl likes it.

I have done some scrapping, but I need to take a photo. That's a post for tomorrow I think. My photo blog hasn't been updated for a while either. Oops. I'll see what I can find for you and get on to that soon.

I can believe it's been a while since you posted -I've been popping by to see where you were ;-)

Love the cards: that a cheekly little "I've worked out..." gag. Love it!

Both cards are full of fun and energy. Well done, you!

P.S Fortunately the pizza was fabby: grilled veggies with a yummy Mediterranean feel. This evening it's marinaded salmon.... but I haven't made the marinade yet!!! And there are no pizzas left in the freezer should I end up blogging for too long teeheehee
