Another Passion for Papertrey Challenge

… this time it’s for FRIENDS.

Now you’d think that was easy enough – eh? Nope. Felt quite challenged – I think because the examples are SO FABBY – http://apassionforpapertrey.blogspot.com/2010/05/challenge-friends.html – see what I mean? Well. I’m hiding behind the old ” too busy” excuse (hey, reports, Hen days in Glasgow,reports,  forward plans and reports = OFFICIALLY BUSY !!!!)

I made this a while back out of scraps and I’m not saying it’s anywhere near a great card, but it qualifies so it’s in. There’s 2 things I really like about it – I’m very impressed with my colouring – it’s pencils and oil. Get me. ( and get them here – http://www.elzybells.co.uk/search.asp?types=yes&type=Basic+Supplies+%3E+Colouring ) I also love the size – It’s TEENY !!! About A7. I think cards like that are great for friends because it is just a thought as opposed to a grand gesture (altho those are good too…!)

* stamps are PTI Autumn Abundance

* all else is scraps from stash !

Incidentally, sucky scanner is being demoted !!! I have been losing weight and promised myself a cheapish digital when I reached a certain milestone – the Amazon order is in and the postie is being stalked !! The squinty effect you have come to love and admire will be banished !

I will be back later this weekend with another tri-shutter card, and, if I have time, another stab at this challenge. I have a different design sitting brooding in my head, reports are finish, planning folder is on boss’ desk, pigs are fed and ready to fly !

Have a great Saturday !
