I have been stumped this week with two challenges, namely ...
Crafty Cardmakers - Challenge #71 - Olympic Spirit, and
CASology - Week #5 - Pond
However, not to be outdone, I was rattling by brains last night and having a little browse of the internet, when I came across a vintage swimming lady from The Graphics Fairy. Apart from the hair colour, she bares a striking resemblance to myself in a swimming costume and I too am as graceful as this when entering the water (ROFL) so that'll do me, I thought. Here she is ...
I coloured her skin with Promarkers and paper pieced her cap. Some DP for the sky and water and a dotty embossing folder. I could only think of really cheesy sentiments like 'make a big spash on your birthday' or 'have a swimming time' so I left it plain.
I thought I might be stretching it a bit with the Pond challenge but I'm sure in countries where it's warm enough you all partake in a bit of pond skinny dipping!
It's hubby's birthday today (gasp, horror - I "bought" him a card) but my daughter baked him a yummy marble cake ...
We're off to Edinburgh for the weekend to catch up with family and friends so I'll see you at the beginning of next week.
Have a lovely weekend and thanks for dipping in.
