It's funny how things turn out

I started doing this card day before yesterday and I got as far as doing the background and couldn't go any further, I had absolutely no ideas. All I knew was that I wanted to use Laura's sketch from 2 sketches 4 u. I wanted to have something different to a just a circular image in the middle of the card.

I let the card be for a little while and came across a fantastic blog Going Green Crafters and artists which inspired me to finish the rest of the card. The bird, tree branch and bird house was an idea that I came up with from the blogs fantastic header. The circle image in the sketch is the round shrub on the tree branch. It's funny where inspiration can be found, it truly is everywhere.

The challenges I have included in this card are-

Laura's sketch # 36-2 Sketches 4 You
A card for someone special-Soft Pencil

I am so very happy that fellow bloggers are enjoying the comp I am currently having, its great to see so many new faces on board and the enthusiasm all you lovely ladies are showing, just 10 more days to go and the winners will be announced. Will I reach 100 followers?

And now for some crafty news-I got a card accepted for publication this week, I won't mention which magazine but it's one of my favourites and every few weeks I submit some of my work for possible publication, the editor must be sick of seeing my work by now LOL!!. It's my first card in an international publication and I can't wait to see my work in print, its all very exciting and I am so very grateful for the opportunity.
Planning to catch up on some DT work etc on the weekend, lets hope it all happens. TGIF everyone and happy crafting.
