Black and white... and some Colour!

Good evening well if you are like me your rushing around getting things ready for the big day!
its amazing how we all get so caught up in the panic,

I have been backing for a few days getting some gifts prepared for Christmas and I can show you a sneak peek! I have been making French Macaroons.

I have spent a lot of time today food shopping, delivering presents, decorating the house and I also have made the chocolate ganache for the above macaroons.

So having sat down at 10pm tonight I decided to make a card I have been putting off
but when I went blog challenge hopping tonight I found that Allsorts have the perfect challenge theme and that combined with Woodware Sketch, I could get just enough inspiration to make the card and be happy with it.

This was a very quick card:
Stamped the bird in Black distress ink... a little spray of water and liquid pearls, Stamped the swirly background and sentiment.
added some Black Magic Mesh and added the black pearls, and the image is on sticky raisers. Done!

7 minutes and 37.7 seconds
Oh that's a lot of 7's tehhehehee

Here are a few challenges I am playing:

Woodware - Sketch
Allsorts - It's as plain as black and white
Cas-ualfridays - 10 Minute Craft Dash! - I have just found this awesome challenge and think I will be playing this one alot next year!!

I did list my last robin card at Cas-ual Friday but then I realised that they have a 4 challenge limit so deleted my card and this one is OK I think? 

have a great rest of your weekend hugs me xx
