Truly Scrumptious

Hi There, and happy Wednesday.

Let's see now, it's only three more sleeps until my son's big wedding day on Saturday. I'm still doing wedding favours, and had to do a quick dash into town today to buy more ribbon...I'd run out and was at panic stations...but I managed to get what I needed, so crisis over.
Just a quick post, albeit a late one to show you my creation for this weeks challenge at Truly Scrumptious. We have another sketch, with the added challenge of using only black, white, and one other colour (excluding flesh and hair tones).
So as I like pink, I thought I would stick to that, and did several shades. I love how it turned out. I used papers from Doodlebug. The pink metallic word paper is a Disney one, but can't think who makes it...

I used my nesties to cut the mats, and the Adorable word was cut out from one of the Cuttlebug Embossing folders...Great if you're in a hurry and haven't got the time to look for a sentiment, as is the case with me at the moment.

I later replaced the 'adorable' word with circle containing '18' after Sophie came home yesterday and said she needed a card for Vanessa, the girl she's been working with this week, (she's on work experience at our local childrens nursery). So I did a quick alteration this morning to accomodate. Vanessa loved it by all accounts, and Sophie has spent the day eating birthday cake..lucky her.

Why not pop along and see what the rest of the design team have done, and be in with the chance to win yourself a prize.

I should have a bit more time once the wedding is over, so might be able to enjoy a few more challenges as well as my DT work again. Oh and I don't know if I've already mentioned this, my redundancy is happening on July 24th. It's so close now, don't know whether to be happy or sad after 21 years working for the same place. I know one thing though...life goes on, and I'll survive....just have to figure out how...lol

Good luck with the wedding Debbie, so exciting! I'm sure that you will fill yor tim when the redundancy comes I do two casual jobs at a school, and with my crafting, the house, etc, the time goes! I thought after regular work I would be bored, but I wasn't., but I'm sure it is the unknown element after such a long time. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog, it's good to have blog friends to cheer us along, I appreciate it, Judith x
