Bright Colours at Make It Colourful

Morning Peeps,

Gosh this last week has been a whirlwind of crafting, crafting, crafting. As you would of realised this is my 8th post and card since last Friday, bearing in mind I work full time, this was rather a lot, if not too much for me to keep up with. Unfortunately my tiredness caught up with me and today's creation isn't my best :( I should have done the tent bigger I think but I really run out of time and energy, although if I hadn't been going to watch my Son is his School's District Cup Final last night, which incidentally they won in extra time, yes extra time, why couldn't they do it in the usual time! Anyway they won 3-0 and I was so pleased for him as this is the last time they will play as a team that have been together from year 7 to year 11 before they all part their ways, be it college, 6th Form or leave for the big wide world.  Anyway, where was I, oh yes, if it hadn't been for the football match I would of ripped this up and started again. Sadly, I had no play time left and if I'm honest no enthusiasm to sit in my tidy craft room and create.  If you didn't see my craft room and copic storage you need to scroll back to Tuesday's post, and you'll see what I had been up to.

Right, with great shame I have to show you my card for today's challenge at Make It Colourful which is Bright Colours, so if nothing else this card certainly fits the bill. This didn't turn out as it was in my head and I feel I didn't do the tent image justice..... must try harder next time, lol.

The image I used is the Circus Digi Tent by Make It Crafty available HERE.  Please hop over to see all the fabulous creations that the girls have made on the Make It Colourful Challenge Blog HERE
