I have had a busy but lovely day at work today. Little Mo was tired out and fell asleep snoring as soon as we had had our bath so I pootled out to my crafty room and decided to get my ATC done for this weeks Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge. Its fairytales/nursery rhymes this week and I just had to use the gorgeous Queen of Hearts to do mine. I used to love this nursery rhyme when I was little, I was always bemused as to why the Queen was doing her own baking! I could never picture a Queen baking tarts!! lol !!

I was going to colour her red and then I decided I wanted to match her into the nitwits paper I had merged her onto. I cut my kraft card to 2.5"x3.5" and then trimmed my patterned paper with her on so a lovely edge of kraft would show. I am really enjoying a weekly pootle into ATC land so huge thank you's to Jenn and her fabby team for getting me going on them again! xxx

Here's a piccy so you can read the rhyme a bit better but I know you all know it off by heart really!!
Well that's me for today. I am going to snuggle up on the settee and watch Van Helsing now (mmmmm....Hugh Jackman.....) with Scott (....who is probably thinking mmmmm...kate beckinsale and Lady vampyres...!!) and have a lovely cuppa!!

thankyou for popping in on me
huge hugs Lou xxx
