Saturday Morning Pictures

Can you remember, way back in the past, waking up to that feeling of excitement because it was Saturday and what did that mean … wahoooo Saturday Morning Pictures or even the flicks (never used that term … to common). 😉

OK you youngsters reading this will automatically think of photos but going to the pictures is how we referred to the Cinema!!!

I can remember it so vividly, running off to the Ritz or the Empire (on my own no being driven in a 4×4), waiting in those huge queues just to see Flash Gordon (swoon xoxoxo … my hero), Heidi, Lassie or even Bugs Bunny. Now I really sound like my Mum I am about to say … those were the days … Yipes.

Now my Saturday mornings wake up excitement is to see all the girls at my craft class … how things change!!!
Just joking girls I definitely prefer all of you to Flash Gordon. 😉

The card today is more about the colouring in with Distress Markers or Inks on watercolour paper, so I picked a really easy image with no fiddly bits. She is from the Cavendish Collection at Kanban, there are a set of six ladies and all are gorgeous but can’t seem to find them anywhere except ebay. The rest of the card is mainly showing the girls how to use two different ribbons …Satin and Chiffon, make two bows and sit them neatly on top of each other. Only a little bit of inking the edges girls, scouts honour … dib dob, stick my finger in my ear.
