What a Little Star ................................................

Good afternoon to you all out there in the world of blog.
Well what a wonderful weekend it has been, hot hot hot and so relaxing and an interesting event to boot.

So yesterday we went shopping in town for some punk gear for his mums annual fancy dress party.  We then headed back home to have a nice cool one whilst relaxing on the hammock with friends.  Later on after getting dressed we went to the party. So I could not leave you thinking what did we all look like so here you go

Here is Mike and Hannah in their best punk gear.  Hannah was wearing some shiny black leggings with zips on them, that when she moved sounded rather rude and she probably needed some talc to assist her getting them on and off and just look at those fab gloves.  Mike was sporting his skull and cross bones T Shirt his tie with all its pins and chains, his ripped jeans and his zip earing.
Matt's sister was wearing leather studded wrist band and gloves with chains hanging from her hat.
Asha her daughter well she was the youngest punk of the party and doesn't she great.
Matt does not do heat very well and was cooking so he did the understated punk, whilst I did (thank heavens Mike cut off my legs) red fish net tights with black holey leggins over the top, with a black mini and attitude black sleeveless t shirt.  Feather earings, matching black and red lace gloves and scruffy hair.

Best dressed of the night well here you go and see what you think.
Fabulous aren't they.

Anyway onto today's card post.  This is a card for a little boy at Christmas, I followed the Sketch Saturday Sketch, really  enjoyed this one, and I rotated it.
The image is one that Jayne sent to me in my winning candy from the ABC Christmas half way there blog hop, it was on water colour paper I think, so I decided to get out the water colour pencils.  I have not used them for a long time as the copics sort of took over, but well I enjoyed using them again.
So this is the creation, made with Basic Grey Papers and using some Basic Grey Rub ons.  The green background card stock framing each layer (several of them).  The ribbon running around the strips on the left and right.  The hearts to show the little boy how much we love him and the gold embossed star - the star he is.  The field of sky stamp framing the image, with frosting around his feet and on his fur for depth.  The little ribbon bow was white and coloured with copics to match the ribbon and the little pink pearls to pick up the pink in the gingham paper.  The eyelets punched in and the ribbon threaded through to finalise the sketch requirements.  I used Tim Holtz peeled paint for the image plate edging and the sentiment edging.  The sentiment is MSE.

So as the lasagna will be done shortly need to quickly add the challenges I am entering this creation into,  Matt went off fishing again, so I have had a little quiet today......................
