It’s Ohhhh So Quiet …..


Picture 003 copy

…. as Bjork would say.

In fact it is very VERRRY quiet in our house right now.

That’s cos I have lost my voice and I think R is hoping that I don’t find it again – he probably thinks he’s gone deaf!!!  It was a bit funny at first but now it is getting ever so slightly tedious and I am just longing for a good shout, heeheeee!!

Anyway, I am a bit late with this cos apart from the lack of noise coming from my trap today, there wasn’t much in the way of mojo either and I think it had gone off to look for the voice.  Plus I am still aching and coughing and spluttering so all in all, I am not 100% today!!!

But the show must go on as they say and it’s time for another Papertake Weekly challenge. This week it is one of me sketches and it is ….

ptw # 40…  this little fella.

Picture 001 copy And this is what I did with it.

I love these Whiff Of Joy gnomes, I really do, and I gave them the Copics treatment, but sadly I put all the pens away before writing down the colours, sorry lovelies!!  I am a dopey trout at the best of times, I will admit,  but when I am not firing on all cylinders it seems to further enhance the dippiness.

So please forgive me peeps but I am just going to run Linford like  through the shopping list today  -

Images is Whiff Of Joy, Mr & Mrs Foxglove

 Copics, Martha Stewart Deep Edger border punch – doily lace trim, Doodlebug pastel buttons, all available from Tracy at Dies To Die For ( I’ve linked each product to the correct place on the website if that helps xxx)

Paper is Wild Rose Studio Spring CD

Sorry to dash today chicksters, but I will hopefully be back to normal (ha, as if!!) very soon but until then, I hope that everyone is OK and if you get a sec, nip over and see what those fabulous PTW girlies have done with the sketch. We have a Guest DT call as well if you fancy it!!

Hugs to all xxx

Hi Dawny

Sorry to hear you are under the weather - it certainly hasn't affected your artistic ability one bit. Your colouring is perfect for the gnomes - I love them too.
Take care, hugs Ali x
