Feeling Blue

Hi there! Hope you are all well and happy and had the same weather that we had yesterday - it was one of those very cold, crisp blue sky days of autumn - and it inspired this card - well the colour of it anyway - not the image - that was chosen to go with the wet, wet, wet theme over at the Sugar bowl this fortnight!!!!

The stamp is clearly a Gorjuss girl - and the die is a spellbinders - I had to borrow my mums to do this - mine is in santas sack!!!! Then the pearls were in a mixed pack - love them - the image was coloured with promarkers. The papers are Tim Holtz distress pad - and the bow was from my stash.I've distressed the edges of the paper with a distressing tool.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

The sugar bowl sugarbowlblog- Jenny's sketch plus wet wet wet.
happycamperscc: Shabby Chic
stampinfortheweekend- anything goes.
 glitternsparklechallengeblog: Monochrome

I'd also like to pass on the news to you that Hazel of the Craftyhazelnut Christmas challenge is starting up a new monthly challenge in January and to herald this she's having some Christmas candy.

Here's the link - hope you'll join in!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting - I hope to see you again soon! Bye for now!
