Orange & Blue?

Doesn’t sound like a very natural colour combo to me… but in the spirit of adventure, orange trees and blue skies, I made a good friend a birthday card this evening. Apparently it’s her birthday on Friday so I am trying to be organised! Here’s my entry to this week’s Artygirlz challenge:

Lots of blues/oranges here girls! I’ve been madly creating today, still cramming for the Craft Fair, making sure I have large and small things to sell/show. It’s exhausting! I don’t know how people do this on a regular basis and work too… I don’t think I could keep it up for long. I do have a contingency plan should I not make any sales – a Fleamarket in a very posh village the week after, where the gentry have money and don’t question your prices! I’m out at work all day tomorrow, as are DH and DD, so I must away to add finishing touches to Arty-Farty Birdie Bags, but first, a nice cuppa tea! 🙂

    Now question, these are my colours. 🙂 Great work. … Yes, I’m back again, but I think not very often, as I’m working 5 hours a day in a book-store.

  9. Fabulous as ever Rosie X

  10. I LOVE the background of the center square!! All that texure with the ribbons and feathers! Craft fairs are HARD work! but I’m sure it will pay-off for you!! Who could resist your dominos and your birdie bags? Or anything at all with one of your birdies on it, for that matter! Just make sure you enjoy the experience!!
