Summer Challenges

As you may have noticed, I have been doing quite a lot of posting this week....that's because I have been on holiday, so I am making the most of it, before I go back to work again next week and come home cross eyed and brain dead from a day of computers and multi currency financial accounting - yuk!! Don't get me wrong - I enjoy my work, even though it can be quite pressurised, but boy, it feels good to escape from it sometimes!

We have spent the week doing lots of fun stuff like cycling, playing crazy golf, going to parks and baking cookies, but I have been staying up late, getting in to my card making (and sleeping in late every morning - but we had better gloss over that!)

So this card was the product of last night's late night labours and it is based on a sketch from this week's Cupcake Challenge.

I have used a beautiful LOTV image, teamed up with some more of the papers that I got for my birthday. Plus I have stepped out of my personal box and used a combination of two different types of alcohol pen. I  know that this is 'allowed' but for some reason I really struggle with the idea of mixing up different brands. However, this time I've managed it, using a combination of Sprectrums and Promarkers - what a break through!!

Hope you like the card. I'm going to enter it in to the following challenges:
