Killer Heels Midweek Reminder

Midweek Reminder??? Hmm...not so sure that's the right way to phrase it but my brain has ceased to function so it will have to do lol!

This was the first card I made in 2013 and it was the first since well before Christmas. It was for BFF's birthday on December 18th....yup...I was late lol!!! 

I printed Killer Masquerade and tried to color it with my Copics. I decided to color the stripes first which can I tell you took all my concentration AND eyesight lol. I was really pleased with the result so carried on with the shoe...boy did I make a BIG mistake. I should have tested the colors first because I didn't realize until I was coloring a larger area that the markers were all but dry!!! There was NO WAY I was going to start again with all those stripes so I just carried on and eked every last bit of ink from the 3 (yes all THREE were dry) pinks. You can see how bad it is in the photo below...

EEK! My unborn grandchild could have done a better job hmph! I created the sentiment in Word...aren't I clever? Actually our lovely GD Jen explained how to do it proving you can teach an old dog new tricks lol.

This is the verse for the inside I found on the internet...

OK, so this card is late
Landing on your mat
But the others were bought in a shop
How difficult is that ? 
This card took skill and talent
And dedication to create
And days of thought and craftsmanship
It's no wonder that it's late
But seriously, I'm sooooo sorry

I thought it was perfect and I've used it a couple of times since lol.

Don't forget the hop is still still have 6 days to play along and guess the word for a chance to win the images :-D

Today is my dad's 80th birthday and I really wanted to go home to celebrate with him but wasn't able to :-( 

This is dad and DLS at Nicole and Ben's wedding...happy birthday dad!!

Hope you have a fabulicious Tuesday...thanks for stopping by :-D
Catch ya later xx

Wouldn't know the inks were dry Kerry, great job, bet she was thrilled even though it was late LOL.

Super card; I think the 'dried up marker's make it look suede-like material!


Love the inside image too - so cute and tiny!

Great card Kerry, if only I could wear heels that high!
Love the colouring. You wouldn't know that your pens were drying out.
