Late again!!

Hi Folks, well it has taken me a whole week to make this little card and by the time I get around to blogging it, the challenges that I was going to enter it into have closed!!! Just not enough hours in the day!! Hopefully within the next week, I will have found out if I can "retire" or not, so I will be able to craft and blog until my hearts content, that's after I have caught up with 25 years worth of housework of course!!! So fingers crossed for me as I shall be gutted if I don't get selected. This little card is really not me at all, but I must say I really enjoyed making it and the image was a joy to colour. I even managed to mask Tilda and it was pure luck that she is balancing on the edge of that barrell, lol. Looks a bit lop sided but I think we all would if we were sat on an anchor!!! Anyway the sketch I have used is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday , I may be in time for My Time to Craft which was Xtra image but definitely not in time for ABC which was X marks the spot - a Pirate Theme.

Images are Magnolia Pirate Tilda and Barrel, High Hopes Pirates Birthday and Ships Wheel.

I apologise for not getting around to commenting on peoples blogs but I am having trouble leaving messages for some reason I don't seem to be able to log in or it asks me 20 times, so I am admitting to having given up on many occasions. But I promise I am looking and love them all.

Take care and enjoy the sunshine whilst it lasts!!

  7. Lol lovely lady, I did laugh at your 25 years of housework, I'll pop round with my beloved Henry lol.
    Stunning card Jo, the masking is perfect and my god girl you can colour, love it.

    Have you unticked the "keep me signed in" box when you keep being asked to sign in? I don't know why but that has worked for loads of us so who cares why as long as it works lol.
    I'm still having trouble staying on some blogs, I see the header for a few seconds & then get a blank page saying "diagnose connection problem" I guess I must be blacklisted from some lol
