Wednesday already!

Time is really flying by this week and I don't seem to be able to catch up with my self at all!  That said I have realised that it is time to show you my crafting desk as part of WOYWW.  I am in the process of making a birthday card for one of Alex's friends who turns 4 at the weekend.  Theo is a very physical little boy so I thought that a scene with a little boy dressed as a knight fighting a dragon would work quite well. As a result you can se the relevant stamps, and lots of promarker pens everywhere as I am colouring in the image.  In the background you can also see my mug of tea (sadly going cold as I have been focussing on colouring and not drinking), to the left of my desk my notebook of challenges and crafting projects.
Here is the final card which fits with the 3 circles challenge from Pollycraft, the stars theme from Sew many cards, 'fantasy' from creative card crew, and the song theme from Tuesday Taggers with the song being Puff the Magic Dragon.
I have also made a card for my sister in law following this weeks Unscripted Sketch.  My sister in law loves purple and has burgandy died hair hence the slight burgandy tint to the hair in the image I used and the emphasis on purple in this card. This card fits with the 'anything but a square' from CCC and 'anything goes' from PTW - I did use something old...both the patterned papers have been in my stash for ages! I apologise for the colour balance in the picture, for some reason the photo didn't work well. That is all from me for now.  Have a great rest of the week everyone.
Love,
Caro
