Simply Sassy Sneek Peek Apple of my Eye

Morning Peeps,

Where does the weekend go.  Seriously you blink and you miss it.  I did manage to do an hour in the gymn on Saturday, goodness knows what's come over me and yesterday I visited my niece and the new addition to the family, baby Nikita.  She's gorgeous, so now I'm a Great Aunt!

I also had a little accident with acrylic paint, oh my word.  I only needed a little for the project so I unscrewed the lid. Biggggggg mistake.  I knocked the bottle off the table and it landed upright.  Good you may think. Notttt. It hit the floor with such speed that the contents splurted up and covered me, my sewing machine, printer, radiator and the carpet. Opps!  As i woke up early I just put on my hubbys T-shirt and my linen trousers and went to my craftroom whilst everyone was still sleeping, so my hubby's black Firetrap T-shirt now has splatters of white paint all over it. I was so lucky it didn't splatter the cards I had on the side, typical crafter more worried about my cards than OH's T-shirt. Who would of thought there was that much in a bottle, lol.  My hair still has white streaks, lol.

I have a little sneek peek for you. This is Apple of my Eye and will be available on Saturday from Funky Kits.

Uh oh - disaster strikes. So much danger in a little bottle of paint. You'll know not to unscrew the cap again in a hurry! Hope you manage to get it all sorted. Thank goodness it didn't reach any of your cards!

As for your card.. W-O-W! I'm blown away.. as always. Your colouring is just something else.. LOOK AT HER SHORTS!! COME ONNN!!

I love the little scene you've created with the fence and that big pink bow is gorgeous! So many gorgeous flowers and swirls and details - a real feast for the eyes!!

Hope you're okay!! xo, Lou.

Stunning colours & I love that ribbon. This looks like it is going to be a fun release too - just look at that hair! The way you have placed that floral centrepiece on the ribbon to make it look as if it is the flowerhead of the green leaves is masterful. Just super with that floral themed patterned paper & the way you've pikced out both the mauve & the cherry pink with the butterflies. Glad you survived the whitewashing episode. Have a good week.

So sorry to hear about your acrylic paint whoopsi. Like you said thank gosh it didn't get on your cards. I did a boo boo with my Sharpie poster paint, I shook it while the cap was off. OMG what a nightmare. But alas none got on my card. Pheww..
So onto your card Tracy as always you've created another master piece. Such a beautiful image and I love the green around her frame!
Thank you for joining us for this months sketch challenge at CLP!
