Boat Shaped Card.

This weekend has been very pleasant.  On Friday night I went to see Miriam Margolyes in her one-woman tour-de- force, Dickens' Women.  Not only did I learn about Charles Dickens but also how he drew some of his characters from real life.  Ms Margolyes brought each character to life simply with a change of voice or a change of expression.  I enjoyed it immensley

This afternoon I went to see The Artist.  I have been looking forward to seeing this film and it lived up to my expectations.  A lovely film, quite clever and a sweet love story.  No wonder it won five Oscars.

Now for this weekends card.  I didn't do so well with the cards.  I made three different cards but only liked one, the one below.
Supplies: Pattern - The Cutting Cafe, Sail Boat; Paper - My Minds Eye, Red Pin Stripe and Kaiser Periwinkle; Card - Bazzil; Sentiment - Fern Gully Stamps; Buttons - Francheville; Brads - unknown

I am entering this in two challenges -
Celebrate The Occasion, #53 Birthday (shape card)
Our Creative Corner, Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I used Brads, button and Blue

  2. Hello Skye
    I just wanted to suggest to you, that it would be better if you could turn off your word verification for your comments, Challenge Blogs are not leaving comments if you have it turned on. You will receive more comments if it is off.
    It would be a shame if we cannot review your cards.
