A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 136 - Blue and Green

At last I have managed to get back into my craftroom and make a card and try to get back into the swing of things.

We were due to go on holiday on 17th December to Las vegas, San Francisco and Southern California for my 50th Birthday and also to spend time with my aunt and uncle who live there. We flew into heathrow from Aberdeen on the 17th - arriving 12 hours late due to the snow and then finding ourselves stranded there due to a complete shutdown at Heathrow. To cut a long story short, we ended up spending 6 days there before finally managing to get a flight out on the afternoon of the 24th December. Needless to say, by birthday had long passed (on the 20th) and we had to make all sorts of changes to our plans and we never did make it to San Francisco. Unfotunately my husband still had to fly home on our planned date of 1st January due to work commitments but I managed to extend my stay until 7th January, which was great but of course I am now playing major catch-up both at work and at home.

This card that I have done today is for the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar where the theme is Green and Blue. Ths image is from the new Dino-mite collection at Pixie Dust Studio which was just released last week.

The sketch that I have follwed here is the current one at Friday sketchers.

Please do take some time to pop on over to the challenge blog Here to read all about the challenge this week and also to read mor about the fab prize on offer this week from Bunny Zoe Crafts.
