Kite Flyin Mae


Hey Peeps :)

As promised, I'm back, second post today. (Insert bus gag here.) The beginning of the month means a new Challenge over at Some Odd Girl. And this month, we have a rather faberoony colour combo to play with.


I have a bit of a love, hate relationship with colour combos. First up, I love them as I get excited about trying to work with and put together colours I don't normally use. Then, when I'm in the middle of trying to make it all work and I'm pulling my hair out, chucking my rattle out of the pram and generally having a bit of a hissy fit, I'm not happy. And finally, when everything is done and stuck down, one of two things happen. I either vow never to go near said colour combo again and make sure card never sees the light of day. Or I look at it and think I'm rather pleased with that, I should do it more often...I'm option two on this one. Happy Days!


I'd like to enter this card at:

Art Impressions Stamps - Seeing Spots
Digistamps 4 Joy - Buttons
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Hanna and Friends - Favourite Song (Fly Me Away - Goldfrapp)
Inky Impressions - Summer Fun
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything for Kids

Have a wonderful weekend!

PS - Unfortunately we've had our first bird present from Tinker today - the poor feathered thing was very unwell. Only thing I really, truly don't like about cats - hunting birds.
