Friday Sketchers #84 & Cute Card Thursday #95

Hello everyone. Thanks for calling in to see me here. I'm really chuffed that you have taken the trouble to visit. I don't know if it's something to do with age but I feel that January is flying in alarmingly quickly. The best of it is that hubby still hasn't been able to bring in all the outside Christmas lights because of the snow and his chest infection although they are obviously not switched on any longer. If it takes much longer he'll be suggesting that we just leave them out till next Christmas Lol.
I went to Stampaholics in Perth today to spend the gift vouchers Hubby gave me for Christmas and I got a load of goodies including a box set of Polychromos pencils, a large Martha Stewart Border Punch, a set of Nestie Labels and a Tilda as well as lots of embellies and papers. Can't wait to get stuck in with them.
I put this card together to enter the Friday Sketchers challenge. I really liked their sketch this week. I am also entering it to Cute Card Thursday where the theme is "Pink & Grey". The image is an old friend called "Pringle" from Sugar Nellie, coloured as usual with my Copic Ciaos. The papers are an unnamed grey stripe and the grey swirl is from Rayher Hobby GmbH. I made the flowers from plain pink cardstock and sprayed them with Glimmermist - unfortunately in my enthusiasm Pringle got a misting as well, silly me. I hope it doesn't spoil the effect.
If you have time I would love you to leave a comment to let me know what you think. Your opinions and advice are appreciated and I love hearing from you. Have a great day in whatever you are doing and keep safe.
Hugs,
