I so love turquoise has to be my favourite but blues and lilacs in general would be my colours of choice , but I do like brown with turquoise too. I suppose it really depends on what it is I'm picking the colour of as I prefer white and very pale pastels shades for decor and in clothing as well as blues and blacks and browns I am partial to a bit of lime green , and when younger I was even known to wear bright orange, if I wore it now I would be nearer to looking like an orange as I am definitely more rotund than in my 20's!
Well this card is for my niece commissioned by my mum and dad. Dad wanted 'happy birthday granddaughter' on it,mum wanted a girly card with a girl on it, but she doesn't like all the flowers and swirls etc perhaps that's where I get my CAS love from.
I saw a challenge at LOTV not sure if I've missed the deadline as all these appointments and workmen etc this week and deadlines with homework last week have taken their toll on my brain knowing what day it is etc but the challenge was favourite colours so as I'd not inked up this cute stamp I figured that was as good a starting point as any.
The image I stamped with memento black ink and coloured with my Promarkers, the tiara is sakura glitter pen in silver. I added turquoise stickles to her skirt and she is ready to sulk.
The papers are all from my scraps folders which while sat waiting for a surveyor to turn up I sorted into colours. The surveyor didn't turn up,4 phone calls later to be conveniently told after they had checked a couple of times where he was and that the appointment made in an urgent phone call on friday for yesterday at 9am, went to it's an all morning call with no specific time as we don't make set appointment times so could be any time between 9 and 12, to I'll find out why he's not been, to he's not been as I had the wrong date and its now at the beginning of March and it will be at 9am, so much for not specific times and now I have to jiggle things round in my diary. If they just over booked or the surveyor was off sick or what ever I really wish people could be honest instead of making excuses that they think will be accepted more readily. Instead I wasted a full morning sitting around and staying within ear shot of the door being knocked on in case the door bell wasn't working, it doesn't seem to like the rain or cold weather and had my teenage son moaning that he really wanted me to take him out.
Sorry about my digression and moaning, back to the card. The sentiment I stamped in versamark and embossed with metallic bronze powder, not sure of the make as there isn't a label on it apart from the colour.
The card itself I decided to have a go at making not sure what they call it but a fancy fold one anyway that seems to be quite popular at the mo, quite easy really and I was quite surprised too.

Oh well, time to tidy the kitchen, prepare dinner and then off to an appointment at wheelchair clinic to see if they can sort out a new wheelchair for my son(who knows exactly what he wants but as it's NHS won't get) and then if the chairs the reps have brought are suitable it's a 6 - 12 week wait for it to arrive, isn't bureaucracy wonderful?
