Uh-oh we're in trouble....

....something's going on and it's burst our bubble. Are you singing along? Can you remember who sang that song? I think they were some sort of one hit wonder type outfit but it was a fun, catchy song! And completely unrelated to the card I'm posting but I had it in my head cos my son's just been brought home from his Nan and Grandad's, where he was meant to be staying tonight, but he was being naughty, so he was sent home in disgrace.
Anyway, back to the reason you're (probably!) here! If you recognise something about this card, it's cos the sketch was the LOTV challenge the week before last and I missed the d/l, but then when I saw the next challenge was 'celebrate', I thought 'that's OK, I can make that work' (hence the sentiment stamp), then yesterday I'm sitting there twiddling me thumbs thinking I still had over an hour to post my card, refreshed the page and DOH...collection closed. This week, it's a new sketch challenge, so I've well and truly missed the boat now!! I dunno, sometimes I'm such a ditz! Would you believe that in my working life I was once in charge of placing the BBC's recruitment advertising?!? Seems like eons ago now (ha, ha - worked on that account too - eon!!!) Anyway, I's me card:
Image - LOTV watercoloured with distress inks.
Sentiment stamp - LOTV.
Papers - Prima.
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts and Woodware.
Other - Papermania brads, Butterflies punched with MS punch, Pearls from stash, Leafy Flourish and Butterfly MIC laser cut chipboard shapes painted with acrylic paint, MFT doily die.

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
And I think that's about it! I hope you like it, despite me being a complete doughnut, I was quite pleased with how it turned out, so please leave me some lurve!!! I'm off to try and sort out my little tearaway....wish me luck.................xx

  9. Hi Marie,
    I'm not the only one who misses challenges then? it's annoying when you have your card all ready then realise you've missed it, I know I've been there lol.
    I see you've entered the Wild orchid challenge, I don't know if you know but it's a blog where you can only share your card with two other challenges beside the WOC one, I made that mistake myself once too. Take care & good luck with your challenges, hugs Teresa xx

  17. Your card is so cute! Thanks for joining us at WOC! Unfortunately in order to qualify for the drawing you are only allowed to combine the entry with two other challenges. We would sure hate for you to miss out on any opportunities to win the prize, lucky there is a lot of time to make another one! :)
