The second Thank You card

An unusual occurrence - I made two cards today. This happened because I had to stay in all day.
Hubby paid a visit to the loo at 5.30am (ooops, maybe too much information, haha) and heard water running in the pipes. Had a look outside and the driveway and front garden were like a lake. Turned off the supply at the mains, so no water. Then we couldn't lock the back door!
The chappie came and fixed the door about 12.30 and the Homeserve men came about 3pm.
Decided we needed a nice cuppa tea and I dropped and broke the teapot lid.
Son popped in for a while after seeing the doc and has been signed off work for two weeks. He kneeled on a screw head at work and his leg is swollen from knee to ankle.
Quite an interesting day!

This card fits the following challenges

Colour Create - Grassy green, apple green, sunflower yellow, lemon and white

- Arrows

Crafty Goings On - Coloured stamped or digi download

MMSC challenge 8 - Sketch


The cute young fella from Pollycraft digi downloads has made another appearance but I had to give him a different colour jumper for this one.
Coloured with Copics as the previous card. BP's are some of the oddments I am trying to use up.

Thanks for visiting and any comments which are really appreciated

Oh what a wonderful card. I think you are the first entry to use a silk flower as your half circle..very clever :) I clicked to enlarge it and the image is just adorable too. The arrow around the corner is clever as well..I will have to remember that one :) Thanks so much for playing the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge with us :) Check out tomorrows sketch too ok? :)
