Friends are kisses from Angels

Oh my, I don't believe what I did today...

Let's take it from the beginning... Here's the card I prepared today:

And here's the story:

As soon as my working day finished, meaning that I am officially on holidays bynow (yeah!), I started looking at my favourite challenges blogs for some inspiration.

First, I found a wonderful colour combination at Play Date Cafe PDCC96:

(ok, the colours might not be as subtle as suggested by the colour combo, but I still like the combination ;o))

Then, I wanted to look at sketches. I went over to Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge as it has been a while I have played over there and I have missed using my Waltzingmouse stamps... The sketch was inspiring... but I saw that there was less than an hour and a half to submit my entry! Not enough time for me usually, especially when I start from scratch, without an idea where to start from!

Here's the sketch by the way:

So I set myself the additional challenge to make it on time... Well, by the time I had the picture, I only had four minutes to submit it. And that's how I ended up preparing a really, really short post, which I am now amending... Apologies for that!

I promise I'll never do that again... Although the adrenaline made me forget my light headache:
a. now the headache is back (and of course stronger)
b. I didn't feel good doing the really short temporary post
c. I always have doubts when I am in a hurry...

Anyways... the thing is that I like the result, I might keep it for some time on my living room's wall... ;o)

I hope you like it!
