Spread Sunshine :)

Hello everyone! :) Thanks for stopping by today, I've got a card to share with you that I posted over on the Saturated Canary FB page a few days ago. I'm just getting around to blogging it now.. because I'm lazy. :) It's late on Monday night when I'm typing this and I'm SO ready for bed. I've been like a dead girl walking today - or more like hobbling. I need some new shoes for work, my ankles feels like they're about to SNAP. I currently wear black Converse All Stars and they do NOT support your ankles/ heels/ feet/ ANYTHING at all. Especially not on a 9 hour shift. Ouch! :( It feels so good to sit down and not feel the pain, but then when I go to stand up to do something I almost fall over because I forget! :( Anywho, enough of the whinging.. I seem to be doing that a lot lately on here, don't I?! *Slaps wrists*

Onto the card. I've been totally ODing on Christmas creations lately, hell, I've even reverted to using some none Christmas-y products to make Christmas cards because I'm that drained with it all. In reality I should be focusing on wedding/ Halloween stuff (obviously not combined) - but I've had a lot of Christmas card orders, so I ain't complaining!!

So.. because of the whole Christmas deal I thought I'd take a break and get one of my new Saturated Canary images coloured up. Because I am actually in LOVE with them.

Meet Peace and Love Hipster. Look at that HAIR!! I wish! <3 You can find this amazing girl HERE over at Krista's Etsy Shop! :) I used some papers from my raffle prize kit from Sarahs Cards LTD - American Crafts - Hello Sunshine. So perfect when I want a break from Christmas stuff.

How many times have I said 'Christmas' in this post?!

I've coloured this gorgeous girl using Copics and Promarkers and added my own little stencilled sky background. I got cocky and tried to add some grass. EPIC fail, but hey. At least she ain't floating now. The layout is really simple, not a lot of room left on a 5.5"x4.25" card when you use the largest Labels Fourteen die.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Saturated Canary - #2 Stitching
× Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Enjoy your day, whatever you're up to. I'll be none stop from the moment I get up today. Card orders, then work, then darts, then BED. Oh, and I gotta get my ass into gear and get my SOG creation finished up. It's been sitting at the side of my desk for about a week going all unloved. I've been waiting for my next order of Copics but they're taking TOO LONG!! Keep your eyes peeled for that on Thursday! <3
