What a Wally!!!

Good evening.
Just a quick post before the soaps start and then one of my favourite programs - Strictly!!!

Tomorrow I'm toying with the idea of 'popping' down to the Craft Event at Westpoint in Exeter as my DH and son are off to Old Trafford to watch their team play and won't be back until at least 8pm. When I checked it looks like it would only take just over 1hr 30mins to get there - I remember when I used to travel that far and back on a daily basis for work - something far less enjoyable lol!!!

Anyway I'm here to share my 'what a wally' moment I had this week.
There I was happily getting ahead with some DT work and feeling quite pleased with myself when I had finished making this card:

Without wanting to give too much away here was my checklist:
Sponsor Image: Check
Optional Theme - Swirls and Pearls: Check
Old or New Stash: Check
Sketch - DOH!!!!! - that was the 'what a wally' moment lol!!!

I guess it means I have an unexpected non-DT make to share with you - and I have a lovely card I can put in my box all ready to send to someone special :o)

So here's a few more piccies so you can see the stepper details and close up of the image:

Thanks for popping by this evening.
Have a good one.

Oh well you have a beautiful card to show for your wally moment! Love the soft colours & the embellies.
Have a great weekend
Hugs Carole xXx

Debbie said...

Wow Debbs. Firstly can I say, that that image is gorgeous, love the little birds in her hair. The stepper is just lovely, don't do them enough, yet love 'em. Your colouring (especially the hair) is just super.
I cannot wait for Strictly either, just love it. Fiona Fullerton looks fab (not keen on Vanessa tho'!) Dave Myers of Hair Bikers fame lives about 1 mile away from me!!! He's a love but not sure he can dance (my Son said his food and drink is fab tho', as he's sampled it in his house!!)
Oh god sorry, my message is like a Biblical Epic!!! LOL
So in other words.....Your not a Wally to me!

Janice said...

Hugs Sharon. x

My wally moment was entering a challenge for 'summer colours' which was fine until I received a message telling me it had been removed from the challenge because I had made a christmas card LOL x
