Whiff of the Weekend

It's been a lovely weekend so far and today looks just as nice out. It's dancing exams/medals for us all afternoon, 4 in total, so I will report back on those tomorrow. In the meantime a couple of projects.
Green and yellow, green and yellow,
Oh mother come quick,
I'm gonna be sick,
And I wanna lay down and die.

Brings back memories of Guide camp. I haven't totally taken leave of my senses, 'Green and Yellow plus 1 other' is challenge #75 at Whiff of Joy. I chose to add lilac to mine purely because a pile of things were lying in close proximity and I thought they looked OK.

I've used the sketch at Moving Along With The Times #42 and completed the card with rather too many Rain Dot flowers!

I've also altered this CD for Creative Inspirations challenge #56.
The stamp was my prize for winning over at High Hopes. By chance this week's challenge #72 is 'Good enough to eat' so I'm linking to that one to say thank you so much for my prize.
I've chosen colours to match as closely as I can for Copic Colour Challenge #60 - Light Crockery Blue, Dark Brown and Yellowish Beige.

I've incorporated a Cuttlebug embossed background and also embossed his nose for this months Winter Wonderland challenge. Quixotic Challenge #21 is Heavy Metal which I've incorporated with the snowflake eyelets. Lastly, this month's Crafty Calendar challenge is to make a April Fools joke card and I think a snowman sat in hot chocolate counts as that.

Off to the dance studios next, wish us luck!
