Hi there and welcome to Sunday

Hi there,

Last night we were out to dinner with our neighbours, Sally and Roger, and went to a Mexican restaurant in Kissimmee (Garibaldi's). We were joined by Sally's daughter, Bonnie, which was real nice and a good time was had by all though the storm started whilst we were in the restaurant!! Bonnie, bless her, volunteered to go get the car so I didn't drown on my slow way to the car!! It was back to Sally and Roger's for another drink and a chat before heading home to watch Doctor Who on BBC America! Did anyone else watch last night's episode? I'm not normally a big fan of James Corden but he was great in this episode.

I'm a little late with my post today as we got up this morning to find ...... NO INTERNET or TV service!!! Blimey, must've been one heck of a storm last night - kind of a shame we slept through it!! DUH!
Yesterday, I made a card for the Craft Mad and Loving It and Simply Less is More challenge .... a nice enough design to a fab sketch from Chrissie and Mandi but it just wasn't quite right. After a couple of people quite rightly pointed out the error of my ways I decided to have another go at this card ....... better?

  • Materials used:
  • White C5 card and matching envelope
  • Hero Arts Image inked in Memories jet black ink
  • Hero Arts star image inked using Marvy le plume II marker
  • Hero Arts sentiment inked in Brilliance mediterranean blue
  • Crystal stickles to highlight
Happy Sunday everyone - how's the weather with you? I hear tell that the U.K. is experiencing an Indian Summer and hope you are all making the most of it.

Looks really good to me Kathy.
Yes the pastels were pan pastels and I had a play when I got home using masks and versamark to get depth. Love them so far.
Have a good week.
