My first challenge card for ages and now its too late!!

Thought it was about time I made a card for a challenge. I rather liked the sketch from Cute Card Thursday so thought I would make a card using that. However it took a bit longer than I thought, so I'm too late - by 10 minutes - thats about par for the course for me!! Maybe a New Years Resolution??



I used one of the lovely Lili of the Valley stamps I bought earlier this month but haven't had time to play with until today. I watched a few you tube videos to pick up some tips for colouring with copics and have tried to put them into practice today.... Papers are a hostess gift from Stampin' Up!

I tidied my workshpace on Christmas Eve, look at it now, only one card later!! Am I the only person to get into such a mess making one card??



Am off to have a tidy up again and see what challenges I can enter tomorrow....

Bye for now.

Lol, I've done that so many times too. It's a beautiful card and your colouring looks great to me. I'm sure you're in good company with that desk, although it really doesn't look that bad, not to me anyway.

Love your card Sam. Those LOTV images are just gorgeous! If your desk doesn't get messy while you are crafting, you are just not doing it right!
Happy final WOYWW for 2010 and Happy 2011!

I love the fact that you have covered the workspace for just one card - it shows that you are using exactly what you want to, rather than just what is to hand IYSWIM...

Wishing you a happy, crafty 2011,

Hi Sam,
Thanks for visiting. The storage containers I have my copics in are cutlery drainers (for washing up) from the supermarket! They cost about $3AUD each so are very economical. As my collection expands I just throw another container in with my groceries!
