Here's a card I've made to fit two challenges - Simon Says Stamp Challenge which was to feature something with wings. (as you can see fairy was my choice) and I've used the sketch from Sketch Saturday. Thanks sto the design teams for the inspiration.
This card is a bit different from those I've made of late as there are no added flowers. I used paper and card from a mixed pad, a fairy/toadstool and heart stamp and sentiment from Little Claire Designs and coloured them all in with distress inks. I finished with a toadstool charm and an organza spotty bow.
I'm out tonight for Dinner with some friends. We all met as the founder members of a ladies business network club a few years ago and we all just gelled. Now I am the only one left out of the original six still in the club and there's lots of lovely new ladies come along, but the original six still get together now and again for Dinner and it's great to catch up with them all.
Today I've finished my scripts for the Awards and pressed SEND with some relief and then shot off to Brigg to the launch of a business - well actually two Chamber businesses who have merged together. They were both marketing/web design businesses and have decided that the way forward is together. It was a lovely event, their offices are so trendy (not surprising I suppose for a marketing company) with lots of white, just accented here and there with shocking pink and a bit of grey. There was champagne (pink of course) and a huge chocolate fountain with lots of tempting things to dip in. I went for the strawberry as the healthy option lol which proved a lot trickier to get into my mouth than I'd bargained for but I managed. You know how it is! Met a woman who ran an online workwear company from home who I enjoyed talking to. It never ceases to amaze me what people do to earn a living. She said she'd started out as a fitness instructor but her dad had always been in business so I guess it was in her genes to try a business. An online business means she can work from home and still be there for her kids which is cool. I came out of there feeling a bit frumpy and dowdy being amongst so many young and trendy things and there was a shop just shouting me in as I made my way back to the car so I went in and found a dress with my name on it (not literally in case you're thinking I'm wandering around with Anne on my cleavage!). So now I can be a trendy old thing!
