I have to blame someone....

Good morning everyone...now who am I going to blame...hhhhmmmm lets see...I forgot to do the draw for the candy didn't I...oops...I think it was your fault, you know who you are don't you lol...seriously though it just went completely out of my head but then I'm not very well you know...right here's where the violins start, can you hear them, if you can then your as mad as me lol...I fell down the stairs on Monday, nothing serious just a bit of Mina clumsiness as usual but I landed on my shoulder and hurt my neck, well long story short over the last few days my neck has got very painful and I cant turn it left so I have been a bit distracted and haven't been able to be on the computer as much as usual...plus I cant sleep very well for it of course...well that's my excuses over with but I promise I will announce the winner in the morning without fail...well now onto my card for today I had to show you this amazing new image from Mo's Digital Pencil, hes called Come Hither and I think hes fantastic, he reminds me so much of a comic book I read once, an epic about vampires (see you didn't know that did you, I love comic books especially the Xmen, not comics but the books they make of them)...I coloured him with distress inks and a gold pen for the frame and tried to make him look like he was wearing silk and satin but I'm not sure I managed it, I wanted him to be in rich deep colours so teamed him up with these amazing papers from the Kaisercraft Velvet Ensemble paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, the colours suit him don't they, I finished with organza wired ribbon tied into a bow a pearl button and two printed sentiments...I cant wait to see his victim that Mo's working on, I bet shes stunning...the fab sketch is from Inspirational card sketches challenge, I love their sketches don't you...I haven't a clue what we are up to today, we were looking for a car boot sale but haven't found one yet, so you never know what we will do...are you up to anything exciting?, whatever your up to have a fab Saturday everyone and watch out for those stair monsters that trip you up when you aren't looking

p.s. the frame around him I got from the net on a free vintage clip art site but sorry I didn't keep the link, if I find it I will let you know
