Monochrome Challenge Midway Reminder

After a lot of procrastinating I finally managed to make my card for today. I don't know what's with me these days. I go round and round in circles and nothing ever gets finished (or started for that matter!). I've found the ONLY way I get things done is to write a list and tick things off as I go so that's what I'm going to do from now on :-D

I've used Killer Platforms again {love}. I've always admired those that take pictures of their cards with the cs or pp in the background, ribbon or buttons strategically placed or propped on a fancy easel or upside down hedgehog (you know what I'm talking about right?) but whenever I try it looks a mess. I thought I'd give it one more go and although my pics aren't going to produce gasps of admiration they'll do lol. It doesn't help that my pp pad was only 8 x 8. Well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it lol.

Ta da! Just pretend they look amazing lol. So I've used Core'dinations cs and fab pp from First Edition Desert Blooms 8 x 8 pad. I coloured Killer Platforms with my Copics and added LOTS of glitter to the heels of the shoes. I know I did this in my last card but I just can't help myself lol. I added a
 Padparadsha Swarovski crystal to the clasp of the bag as well as the center of the flowers. 

I wish you could see the card'd need to wear sunglasses to look at it the sparkle is so bright lol

I've used some of the pp for the top layer of the flowers

So that's my monochrome card for this week...hope it gives you a little bit of inspiration :-D

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Card Mania - Flowers
Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
Digi Make Over  - Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant Challenge - Use the colour Orange
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Bright Colours
Loves Rubberstamps - Anything Goes (I hope digi's are ok..couldn't see anything about using stamps only)

I've decided to cut down on the number of pictures I post of Coen in Tuesday's Coen's Corner...only because I don't want to bore you. The easiest way was to put four pics in one lol!!

These pics were taken at Cathkin Braes on Friday when we were walking Rocky and Ruby. I stopped to let Coen stretch his legs and he had great fun holding onto this seat and pushing his little car along it. 

He's still not crawling but his walking is coming on leaps and bounds. He had his first proper fall on Sunday when Nic and I were at the mall. Coen was walking holding Nic's hand, he tripped and lost his grasp and landed face first on the floor! I was looking the other way and heard the was AWFUL. He was screaming and his poor little nose was bleeding. Thankfully he was fine and only has a small little bruise on his forehead...not the egg we were expecting.

That's it from me for today. Thanks for stopping by :-D

Catch ya later x
