Crafty Catz DT - Colour Challenge

Hello everyone. Time for another challenge over at Crafty Catz again. We had lots of fab entries again last week and I am looking forward to seeing what you all come up with for Carol's colour challenge this week. So get your crafty hands moving because we want to see:

'Black, White & One Other'

That's it, you choose the third colour. Most of us on the design team seemed to go for red as the third colour and I imagine quite a few of you will too. Actually, I didn't think I was going to get this card done at all...but more of that in a minute.

Image: Dancing Willow and Cool Oakley from Whiff of Joy;
Medium: Watercolour Pencils;
Tools: Cuttlebug and Nesties:
Other: Pins from Tabbycrafts; Flat backed pearls from Kanban; Stickles.


Now, why I thought this card was never getting done...and this is quite a long one so I hope you have a seat and a cuppa, lol. Well, as usual, I left it till the last minute to get it done and when I did sit down and get started, my mum phoned and asked if I had been to check my sisters hamsters...she was away for the week and I had the lovely job of going to check the animals. So, at about 10.30pm, I headed off to get it over and done with...had Wee Steven in tow as he had had a nap during the day and was refusing to sleep - I thought he might fall asleep in the car. Four hamsters, plenty food and water...unfortunately, one seemed to be not very well. At first, i thought it was dead however, I managed to get it warm and moving a bit. So, I took it home to look after it. I think by the time I finally got everything sorted and the card done, it must have been about 12am - that'll teach me to be more organised in future. I had made an appointment for the vet but sadly, the wee thing died about 20 minutes before the appointment. So...that should be it...not our pet, not too, we all found it quite sad..which results in some retail therapy ( unfortunately, not the crafty kind) AND...

Please meet 'Manny'. Our new addition to the family. Wee Steven chose his name... Handy Manny mad, lol.

That's it for today, I have an engagement party tonight and it will probably take me all day just figuring out what to wear...not sure anything fits anymore, lol.

Thanks for stopping by
