My first challenge card!

Well it seems to be taking me a week to produce a card again at the moment - but I've been really busy for the last few days, don't quite know what doing, but know I've been BUSY! lol! I've started on a 'walk a mile a day' regime - to try and improve my fitness, which at the present moment is zilch, so that's been taking up a bit of my time, and housework/gardening/lunching out has taken up the rest! Oooh and a nice visit to a craft shop in Harrogate too yesterday where I bought some more copics - well.......... a girl can never have too many of those, can she?

Anyway, I decided to enter this one for Mo's sketch challenge. This is the first challenge I've ever entered, so hope I've stuck to the rules...! This image is soooo lovely to colour - and reminds me of how different sisters can be. I used bazzil for the base and one of the panels, then used a dotty panel which didn't actually have a makers name on it. The image is Mo Manning's Stepsisters - which I've actually stamped this time (I bought it before I discovered digi images!) I coloured with copics of course, and added the shadow to make them pop out. Then of course, I finished with the odd bit of glitterazi...... you've just got to, haven't you? The photography isn't brilliant on this one, not light enough really, but I normally photograph in daylight - this uses flash.

By the way, I invented a new word yesterday.... just wanted to share! I was trying to say that something had given me goosebumps and made me feel fuzzy at the same time, and the word came out of my mouth was 'guzzy'! Must be something to do with my age, but I reckon that's a BRILLIANT word for all of us that know the feeling I was describing!

Anyway - better go - Mistresses is on TV!
Bye for now
