The Good, the bad and the ugly!

Hello there - Happy Monday!

Right...I'm going to start off with the good...this is a card inspired by the theme over at the Shabby Tea Room this week..."luck of the Irish"....they'd like to see green cards!

I know there isn't any four leaf clovers, but it is green! I was asked to make a Birthday card featuring a chameleon and I'm quite pleased with this little fellow! Hope the Shabby Tea Room ladies like him too!

Now for the bad...and I'm warning you it is bad! Have you ever got to a point in life where you start thinking...I just want to get off?!? Well, I think I'm there right now! Too much is happening and I think my little head might just explode! In the meantime it seems that maybe my creative side has imploded as I created this not so fab card this evening...

This card is inspired by this week's sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday...yes I know I'm late this week! Sorry Arlana - I haven't really done your lovely sketch any justice this week!

I also hear you asking "why so many polka dots Wedgie?" ...well that's inspired by the pink polka dot challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge this week. I normally love polka dots, but I think I went a bit crazy here, maybe I should have stuck to the one backing paper!! Or maybe its that blue ribbon...what possessed me?!? I'm really not keen on this card and I wasn't going to share it with everyone, but hey...I spent time making it so thought it deserved an airing!!

Finally the ugly...well to be honest these aren't that ugly, they're just messy...but I didn't want to name the post - the good, the bad and the messy! I've been baking this evening...this time I've made some yummy biscuits. They've got a delicate almond flavour and the icing is lemon to cut through the sweetness of the biscuit. I had a lot of fun decorating them and they taste delicious!

Right, I'm going to clean up the kitchen now...there is icing everywhere!

Thanks for popping by today, Wedgie xxx

Oh my goodness Wedgie I just love that chameleon card - so darn clever girl! And your cupcake card for the sketch challenge is absolutely fabulous - I adore it all those gorgeous papers you've used on it. Wish I were there to sample those delicious biscuits too!
