Loving Life...

Hi girls,

Thought I would like to share with you all, a card I made to enter in a couple of blog challenges this week.

I started by choosing a colour scheme. The Tiddly Inks Challenge is called 'Just Be Me', basically a card to describe ME, so my colour scheme had to be aqua blue.  I chose this lovely image from Tiddly Inks as, if you live in England, you have to either love or hate the rain... and I love it (as long as the wind isn't blowing with it... I love to just feel it falling on my face, whether it's soft, fine rain or hard rain, it's all good. But I DO prefer hard rain). I love the sound. This image is also good for me because I love to splash in puddles, despite being 38 years old. Just because I'm in my 30's why should I stand by and watch my son have all the fun??? The sentiment, by TLC, is also a good one for me, because no matter whether it's is my kids or Steve, I love having them by my side. No matter what. The little girl with the basket of love is me too, my friends are always saying to me that despite what the weather or life throws at me, I always have a happy disposition and am always smiling or giving out hugs etc, so this card really is 'Me'.

For the ProMarker entry, I used the following colours: Blush and Ivory; Soft Green, Ice Grey 1, Cool Grey 3 and 5, Umber, Henna and Cinnamon, Cardinal Red and Ruby

Challenges entered:
Tiddly Inks Blog Challenge 'Just Be Me'
ProMarker Challenge 'All You Need is Love'

Thanks for taking the time to visit me this evening. Hope to see you again soon.
Hugs, Fae xxx
