Three in one


I hope you've all had a good Easter and have not eaten too many Easter eggs.I have had a very quite Easter nice and relaxing after last weekends activities. I have lunch with my Tuesday girls to look forward to. Wednesday I am meeting my friends Val & Patricia for a coffee and girly chat as we have no calligraphy lesson. I am also looking forward to next weekend for two reasons. The first is it's the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show at Ally Pally as you all no doubt know,secondly we are also having a friend from Germany visit who we last saw just before Christmas. So a fun filled week ahead for me if I can keep going, my Fibromyalgia is particular bad at the moment.
Once again I find myself combing three challenges into one. I'm not being lazy it's just the way it turned out. I made it using the Sketch Saturday challenge no 46 then realised the colour combination of Chocolate, cream and coffee fitted into the Colour Create challenge 11.It also fits into the Funky Fairys Challenge which this week is dare to be square.
Image and papers are all from Funky Fairy papercrafts I've distressed around the edges of the papers with Tim Holtz Tea Dye.

Glenda this is a lovely Card. Sorry to hear about you fibromyalgia flare up. Thanks for visiting my blog, and yes I am a lucky girl to have such a nice Craft Haven, my hubby understands that with 8 people living in a 3 bed house, 5 cats and a dog, with grandchildren visiting every so often, I need a wee place off my own.

Have a nice week, love Avril
