Better Late than Never!

Was late getting my DT entry in this week for DU2DS, would like to say I was just feeling sorry for myself and I was, but also had throat and ear infections so def. been feeling sorry for myself.
Much better now though and spent a lovely few hours playing in my craft room making a real pick me up for the new challenge on Tuesday Taggers (Your in for some real eye candy) and this card. The challenge for DU2DS was chocolate and orange (and what would I give for one of those right now) but I tried to steer away fron the chocolate theme and concentrated on the colours!

The great image is from some colouring pages drawn by Elizabeth Dulemba to promote her very unusual children's books. which are well worth a look, and the card was made to accompany a book token present. People don't send book tokens nowadays do they but our bookshop in the village sells them and the kids in my family love to receive them so it's a present I send often. It's great to know that kids can still enjoy the thrill of a good book!

Cardstock - Good ol faithful Kanban

Coloured with - Promarkers
Nesties coloured with - Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade & Brushed Corduroy

Hope you've all been able to enjoy the sun and have had a happy day.
