ABC Challenge...G is for Green

Morning all...well it's the morning after the night before and there are some very sleepy heads in my house this morning...the kids had a ball at their Halloween party last night, the house looked fab once it was all decorated and they had a feast on Pizza, chips, cakes, fudge and not forgetting the inevitable trick or treat sweet stash lol! I think the house finally fell silent at about 2am this morning so there will be some very tired little witches, bats and cats today...hopefully their Mums will have a quiet day lol! Once I get the pictures of the the camera I'll post some so you can see them in all their glory!

Today's card is for this week's ABC Challenge and their theme this week is 'G' FOR GREEN! This was a quick card I managed to put together yesterday afternoon amid all the preparations for the party...well a girl has to get some peace and quiet...if only for half an hour lol!

Here is the recipe for my card
Design Papers : Carol Ann CD
Blue Card Stock : SU!

Digi Image : Dustin Pike (Soccer Dragon)
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Embellies : Brad from stash
Sentiment: Created on the PC
Tools: Small Circular Scalloped Punch

We're off to get ready now as Sophie has majorette training at 12 and then we are off out for a family meal to celebrate my Nephews 18th birthday...I'll be glad to go back to work tomorow for a rest lol!

What a pleasure to come to your blog on this Sunday morning to be delighted with this beautiful card. I love the sketch! The embossing is a sneaky little feature and I love it! That little character is too cute and my how beautifully it is colored. Good for me take lessons from. I really love how you put your colors together - they always look perfect! Sounds like Halloween was tiring but fun! Can't wait to see the pics!
