The one with A Lick of Paint and a Birthday Party!

Hello my lovely blog chums......hope you enjoyed your weekend.

We have been planning, for a while, to redecorate our lounge - and I think I may have made some headway into converting "Mr Must have Carpet Everywhere!!!!" towards going for laminate flooring instead (with two dogs and a cat the hoovering is not fun!!). Hubby is no longer physically able to do the job himself, but we have a family friend who has offered to do the whole lot for us. I have had this LOTV image stamped and ready to colour all weekend, with a particular challenge in mind - so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to make this ready to pop his "wages" into.

My card features:
  • A Lick of Paint from LOTV
  • coloured with promarkers
  • dotty card stock from Limetree crafts
  • sentiment uses a cuttlebug folder
  • dulux colour strips from Homebase
  • card candi
I would like to enter:
Passion for Promarkers challenge - all in a days work
so pleased that I managed to make entry #3
