Need to share my nightmare

Hello Everyone,

Well, I wasn't dreaming to have my nightmare...I decided to enter a challenge....but as usual, me beeing in a rush or just not reading, I forgot to follow the sketch, but did the paper piecing, but only after I had coloured this little lass up...
My first time with pro markers...except for her hair...then cut her fringe off trying to cut with blunt wrecked scissors [now have new ones] then paper pieced her already coloured trousers...made the card all pretty and was going to enter her in the challenge...and discovered I had to follow a sketch as well....I give up...my first Sugar Nellie image "Cassies Rendezvous" that I won in a blog hop....oh! and the flowers, made them up from my box of flowers, in the morning I looked at them and one was green, not blue...well I nearly binned the card by then, but I didn't and here she is...



 Paperpad a freebie from a magazine 'The country diary of an Edwardian lady"
Flowers from stash...and all blue now!!!



Coloured with pro markers and pencils...




Trousers paper pieced with navy paper...

A waking nightmare, but quite pleased with it now...and no challenge...these kids are draining me after school, I'm getting tired..BUT...a three day weekend coming up..yaaay!!!

Big welcome to two new followers, Thank you so much for joining me...and all your lovely comments you all leave..makes all the behind the scenes disasters worth while..

Luv CHRISSYxx

It's like a scarey movie visiting your blog each day...what disaster or tale of uncleanliness will befall you today!?
Your card looks great to me & diggin' the blue flowers and I note the nail in the fence has gone or is it hidden under the card (me thinks the latter!!!) Reveal you naughty girl!!
Do try n' stay outta mischief for one day...catch you tomorrow xx
