Hop, skip & a jump

Hi all,

I am back today with a card for our new challenge over at Milkcoffee, this week our theme is

Back to School

Now my 2 angels!!! go back next Wed and I know it sounds horrible but I can't wait. Don't get me wrong I love having them around but I can't seem to keep in a routine whilst they are around me on hols and I don't seem to get anything done. Plus they squabble so much more when they are around each other for longer periods lol!!. Anyway I tell you, I took them uniform shopping yesterday and well nearly fell over at the till in Clarks £75 for 2 pairs of school shoes, although I have to admit they are good quailty and do last them ages. However whilst they were choosing them Oli went I'll have these (bit trainerish type), they will be alright for when I am playing footie at lunchtime as well!!!! at that price I don't bloomin think so he will sooooo be taking a pair of trainers with him lol.

Anyway - best show you my card, I have chosen to use this fabby image called Rope Skipping Girl. I just loved skipping when I was young, such a fun thing to do although if I tried it now I would probably get black eyes lol!!. Abbie takes a skipping rope with her to school most days, so thought this card would be perfect for her to wish her luck on her first day back.

I coloured my girl in with Pro-Markers and I teamed her with some fab Cosmo Cricket paper called The Boyfriend, as the prints on them were just perfect for this challenge. Added a bit of twine wrapped round the card and a few WOC flowers to pretty it up a bit.

Promarkers used

Skin - Burnt Orange, Coral, Dusky Pink, Blush
Hair - Raw Sienna, Gold, Mustard
Top - Burnt Orange, Spice, Peach
Skirt/Shoes - Cool Grey 5, 4, 3 & 1
Socks - Gold, Mustard, Buttercup

* Bargin for you, my local Hobbycraft are doing their Promarkers at £1.56 each at the moment and when you get to the till there is another 25% off them. So if you need to stock up it may well be worth looking in your local store - I went the weekend and ended up coming out with fair few - well for that price it was rude not too!!.

Thanks for popping by my blog today, I love reading your comments on my cards and truely appreciate you stopping by even if you don't leave a comment.
