DP2 and Friday Sketchers

Hi everyone, today's card is for two challenges as I've used the sketch from Friday Sketchers challenge
The fabulous image is another purchase from Mo's shop (I just can't stay away, can you tell I love colouring them?) and is entered into this week's DP2 challenge which is a recipe of: * Three (3) different papers, * Two (2) ribbons, * One (1) decorative edge (punch, lace, trim, etc.)
This image is called 'Patience' which I'm assuming refers to that poor little cat, judging by the look on it's face!

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning 'Patience'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - My Minds Eye 'Wild Asparagus'
* Punch - Martha Stewart 'Valentine Hearts'
* Everything else from my stash

I'm finding it quite difficult to get much enthusiasm for crafting at the moment and I'm blaming it on this horrible, depressing weather we're having. My mind seems to be full of ideas for different projects, but when I make a start on them they all seem to go horribly wrong (nothing new there then lol!)

I also need to finish off my christmas cards. I made them a while ago and was very smug about it, as it's so unusual for me not to be rushing around at the last minute. All I needed to do was write in them, address them and make a couple of little boxes for the 'fatter' ones (yeah right, have any of you ever seen my pathetic attempts at card boxes??!!)
They're all still sitting there waiting, and now it's been so long that I've forgotten who was meant to be having which card and I think I may just put the 'fat' cards into jiffy bags.....ah well, they do say it's the thought that counts!

Loving this image too Chrissie. Also the papers and layout.
I'm in the same boat as you re Christmas cards. Started in January but can't seem to get into the groove to finish them. I keep getting distracted somehow.

Chrissie this is super so I can only presume that it isn't one that you say turned out wrong. I also presume you never post those as I haven't ever seen a bad one from you!!! I have seen this image on Mo's site and it is great isn't it. Your colouring and layout do it justice. Cathy xxxx
