invitation burnout...

Good morning everyone, did you all have a brilliant weekend...well did the hex work...it certainly didn't work here it rained, it was cold and dull and very very grey...it was so cold we put the heating on, in July would you believe we needed the heating, that's a shocker isn't it...I spent most of yesterday designing inserts, fronts, cutting and measuring and still dont seem to be much further ahead with the invitations...oh well back to it today I guess, someone needs to rescue me from the invitation burnout I think lol...right now onto my card for today which is for our new Swirls and Lace challenge over at Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge...hasn't this fairy got the sassiest look on her face lol...shes Kraftin' Kimmie - Tinkerbell and I coloured her with distress inks and glittered her wings up, now I just had too didn't I. I teamed her up with these amazing papers from the Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Doodle Deux, when you first see this pad you think its really bright and colourful but its so lush, fantastic designs and I'm loving it...for the swirls I wasn't sure what to use until I remembered the Kaisercraft Clear Stamps - Tigerlilly set, the swirls and leave stamp on there was perfect for it I think so I stamped them in black, I finished with some lace and a red satin ribbon and bow...the fab sketch is from the Charisma Cardz challenge but I swapped the shapes across so they didn't hide the pattern so I hope its still ok, I'm also entering it for the Ribbon Girl Blog challenge and the Lets Ink it Up challenge too...right I'm off to chain myself to my craft table to get at least most of the invitations finished today...wish me luck...whatever your up to today have a fabulous one and when you have time pop on over to Bunny Zoe's Crafts blog to see what the rest of our fab team made

I'm wondering if she is thinking "does my bum look big in this?" and we can tell her she looks just lovely with her fab bright papers. The weather is beyond miserable here too, Mina and has been since March pretty much! Nothing to be done about it - we just have to batton down the hatches and play with our toys! Hugs, Lesley
ps- I do hope we are going to get to see those invitations once they have gone out to the recipents!
