Oh When the Saints Go Marching In!!!

Yesterday, my Mum and little came around for a visit. Mum and I made cards together and the girls played outside and did colouring-in. Although they were here for most of the day, I still managed to get very little done!!! Not surprising given the fact there was too much talking going on and that we took a an excursion to my LSS and to the bakery (jam and cream donuts! Yum!!!)

I did manage to complete one card. This one is my example for the Bonus Challenge for the second round of the 7 Deadly Sins Challenge at Wicked Princesses. This week's theme is Envy. For the card challenge, participants are required to create a card incorporating the following;
  • green and black only
  • a transparency
  • doodling
  • a goodluck-themed sentiment

This is my card;

This card was made using this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch, Laura's sketch 24. Check it out here. I was surprised to find that this week's sponsor of 2 Sketches 4 You was none other than Wicked Princesses!!! Small world given this is an American site!

Later that evening, I completed a set of cards using BG's Wisteria Card Kit. I have done a few of these kits in the past, so I decided this time I might make a few adjustments to the designs suggested and make them my own. The alterations are only small, like real stitching instead of doodled, and a few touches of Glossy Accents, but I am happy with the end result. Here's two of the eight cards I made;

Before I go I just want to explain the title of my post... I am a huge Saints fan and I am in love with Nick Riewoldt, and last night my boys defeated Port Adelaide by heaps!!! I don't often stay up quite so late as the midnight effort I pulled last night, but watching the Saints win with a big name player out, in Adelaide, and against a good quality team was absolutely worth it!
