Cake making mice, whatever next

Hi, hope you are all well and are enjoying the weekend!!

We are off to Brighton in the Mini tomorrow - I must remember to take the camera and see if I can get an arty farty shot or two :-)

Just a quick post from me then, I must get to bed!!  Only trouble is that I'm not tired as I slept late because I woke up with a really bad headache and I took the tablets/sleep cure (and, before you ask, no there was no alcohol involved!!)

  Before I get on with it, I was really pleased to see that I had won over at The Catered Crop this week, and was top three at Crafts 4 Eternity and If the Shoe Fits, whoo hoo!!

Right, enough of my blah, blah, blah!!  I'm not too sure about this card - I have been having a complete mental blank on and off this week as far as my crafting is concerned - goodness knows why!!  Maybe it's the pastel colours that aren't doing it for me.  In all honesty I liked the image when I bought it, but have really struggled to colour it in, but was not to be beaten and persevered.  Maybe this is one of those images where you need to colour it several times until you get the feel of it, where as some I just get straight away - why is that?!?  Am I the only one?!?!  Tusk, maybe I should stop being so negative!!

I used an old sketch, I think it was a Friday Sketchers one, such a shame they have finished now :-(  I can't be sure though as I had it in my ideas book, but with no details against it so it could be of any origin (even mine!)!!  Apologies for not being able to credit :-(

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges

Right, better get to bed!

Thanks for stopping by

Sue xx

Well, I think the image is colored great so maybe it is the pastels you don't like. I have a hard time with them too as I really prefer bold bright colors. Looks okay to me though!

Hi Sue, this image is so cute! It also sometimes happen to me, I buy an image I love, I stamp it and then I leave it without coloring it for several months because I can't seem to get inspired... Then something clicks in my head and I'm able to color and love the image!

I think this looks great Sue, sometimes when you start a card and it doesnt start off well what ever you do it just doesnt look right. But I think its just how you feel and not what others see!! If that makes sense!! Have a great day in Brighton. Pami x
