Simon Says Challenge

I've had another go at a sketch. Crazy I know, this flu has clearly affected my brain in someway. I thought I would have a go at the Simon Says Challenge sketch as it looked relatively straight forward.

I've used Heidi Amoung Flowers from CC designs and coloured her with my copics. I selected a stack of paper that is really grungy and dark and so I never actually use it. So it's been sat around for a couple of years being neglected. Said paper is Dovecraft's Abstract Prints. I figured I'd give it a go. Still not that convinced it works, but no harm in trying! Let me know what you think.

On Sunday I completed Race for Life (not too late to sponsor me, link in the top right!) I actually managed to run half of it. I am still in shock. When I was at school I was a lot fitter than I am now and couldn't run the 1500m, so running 2.5k is just amazing. I had a great time, although really knackering. I'm going to try and do it again next year and train properly (like I intended to this year) so I can run the whole thing. Watch me turn into Paula Radcliffe marathon woman. I think not! Thank you again to those that have already sponsored me. Cancer Research is a hugely important charity. I've already lost 2 friends this year to cancer, a friends mum also passed away last month. Another friends tumor has flaired back up in the last week, but one is now in remission, so it's not all bad. It's a cliché to say that everyone is touched by cancer in some way, but it is true. So I thank you for your amazing support. It means so much....And yes I am the one looking dead on the left. :O)

Thank you for stopping by and reading my ramblings. See you again soon.


  1. I love these Swiss Pixies, so cute! If you want my honest opinion, I do think the papers are a little dark but you've managed to brighten them up with the image.
    Hope you don't mind me saying that!
    Congratulations on the run, give yourself a big pat on the back for doing it.
    I'm far too old and fat to run it, but I try to do my bit and me & hubby always sponser our friends that take part.
    Love Elaine xx

  2. I think you did a fabulous job using this sketch. Your card is precious!! I love stamps from C.C. Designs. Congrats on your accomplishments in the race. Keep up the good work and you'll farther next year. Thanks for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
