Did I blink?


Have you ever had one of those weeks, where, one minute you're feeling a bit grumpy because it's Monday morning, and then, in a blink of an eye, you look around, a bit dazed, realise it's Friday and think 'what just happened'?

This is exactly what I'm feeling as I find myself telling you it's time for a great new Sketch over at Sketch Saturday. We have a generous prize from Simon Says Stamp if you fancy joining the fun. I hope you have time to pop over and see the gorgeous creations from the rest of The Saturdays.


I think this is a fab Sketch and I was really looking forward to playing with it, but I really struggled to pull it together. The string of phone calls I had from Estate Agents didn't really help Mojo perform to her best, and every time I look at this card, I feel a bit deflated about it.


But. I am happy with how fluffy my Pickle Penguins look. I normally colour them in much darker colours, but I wanted to have a go at a cutsey grey pair. Et voila!

Have a great weekend...

Oh Faye, please don't feel deflated as this card is just adorable and your colouring of those two little cuties is superb sweetie!
I think we are all much too hard on ourselves (I know I'm never happy with anything I do!)

P.S. Now I'm worried about Estate Agents ringing, please don't tell me you're moving again? Let me know!

I am so in love with this cute card! Your colouring is awesome, nothing new there, it always is ;)
and the big spotty paper works perfectly against the embossed dots behind the penguins.
Please look at it again, surely you can see how FAB it is?
By the sounds of it, you've had a busy week too.

Yikes, I think I blinked too - what a busy week it was - bracing myself for another this week! Hence my habit of lurking rather than commenting this past while...
This card is adorable, no fretting! Those penguins are so super sweet!
Hope this week goes a little better for you!
Banana :)

Sarah said...

Hi Faye, well I think it's a gorgeous card - your colouring is just amazing, they look so real and fluffy. Almost if I reached out I could stroke them! But I understand that sometimes it doesn't matter what you do you just don't like a card - been there, got the T-shirt (lots!!! and mostly when I see how someone else has coloured so much better the same image I've used!!)

I also think this week has flown, and now I'm getting a bit fed up with all the Christmas stuff being thrown at us when I don't feel Christmassy at all!

Oooh I do hope you don't mind me ranting on your blog, apologies for going off into one.

Hope you are happier today,
Sarah
