The result of not being able to sleep

Marie here again, tired and grumpy. The knee and my hands as well is killing me and nothing helps to take the pain away. So what to do? Up in the middle of the night and do some colouring to take my mind of the pain. So this is what I ended up with.

I had a clean up in the closet where I keep some of my stash and this is all left overs from old cards. The only thing they have in common is that all the designer papers are from Magnolia. Didn't know that I had so much of them! :) I hardly ever use them, cause I never seem to get a good card out from them. I'm not that thrilled over this one either exept the colouring. I decided to try to give the aquamarkers a new chance and suddenly everything came together. These markers will stay here, I thought of giving them away before this. The image is also from Magnolia, one of the cute little Pirate Tildas, never used her before. Used some mesh as a fishing new and a few buttons and charms for some catch. A little blue and white bakers twine, chandeler and some bling stones found laying around in the mess. This is what I came up with. It's way too much sun outside today, the snow gives a very strange light around here. I have to practise my photoskills to be able to take better pictures for this poor blog. :)

I have followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers looking like this
I am entering the card to these challenges
* Passion for Promarkers - Anything goes
* Friday Sketchers - The sketch
* Just Magnolia & Hanglar - Anything goes

So with this said, I think I go and take little time to rest infront of the TV. It's very calm around here today as the kids are back at kindergarten and Mats took them there. Way too far for me to walk when I have this pain. They have moved the kids to a dífferent KG during the holiday season, instead of  300 metres, I have to walk 1500 metres each way. No thank you! Next week back to normal again.

For now
love n' hugs,

Ps Don't forget, tomorrow it's time for the very first challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges, do come and join us!
