Roar..Good Evening All

Sincere apologies for my absence, been doing 12 hour days at work over the last month whilst we had some refurbishment works going on, so no time for anything else other than eating and sleeping 😦

Back to normal now, I hope, so decided it was time for a crop with the usual gang.  I set a colour challenge of Brown, Blue and Orange (these are the new colours following the refurb at work) – what was I thinking?

So, last night I pulled all my stash out trying to work out what to do today and eventually plumped for dinosaurs – as you do!

Inspired by some Basic Grey papers, which thankfully included all three colours, I then selected a “stampin up” stamp set which gave me the dinosaur – a Tyrannosaurus Rex, I believe, and the sentiment.  Some burnt orange card to layer up, my promarkers to colour the image, a bone from a Jolly Nation decoupage sheet and an old Mojo Monday challenge layout and hey presto, the finished article 🙂

Not too bad going, bearing in mind, I really haven’t done anything for sooooooooo long.

In fact, everyone got stuck in today and produced some really lovely cards – so a good day all in all.

The challenge has been set for next time – Autumn Leaves – so roll on October 🙂

Should be back again sooner than that though all being well
