Ever Had One Of Those Days?

There's a song Elvis sings in the film GI Blues ..... "D'ya ever have one of those days, when nothing goes right, from morning til night, d'ya ever have one of those days?"

Yeah, it's one of those. You know, we all get them, one or two days every few weeks when you just feel it in your water that you should have stayed in bed. And it's my day off too so feeling a bit cheated. Vince has been pleased that I'm at home, although he's not being much help......

As I've been so pants at challenges this week I thought I'd have a go at a couple today. Results are not quite what I wanted but, hey, it's one of those days! First is the Passion For ProMarkers Poppy & Forest Green Challenge and of course my first thought was Christmas -

I've used Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl Sitting, the papers are freebies from Making Cards and the foil holly leaves and gems are from stash.

Second one is Cute Card Thursday Challenge 83 Candy Corns and I have to admit I was a bit stumped but thought "what the heck, jam is sweet!"

Image is Penny Black Sugar Sweet Dreams which I have coloured (badly) with a mixture of ProMarkers and Copics. Papers are all scraps from stash and sentiment is a PaperMania dome sticker.

Thanks for dropping by to see me, hope you all have fabbie weekends, whatever you are up to!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Gorgeous cards hun, your colouring looks beautiful to me.
I had one of those days yesterday, the car decided to be poorly, the printer died and the sound went on the tv, fingers crossed as that's 3 things that's my bad luck done!
