Each day aim to blog and fit in craft time among many other things I need to do too......but its just not happening. The kids have been off school again with various illnesses but hopefully they are sorted and back to school as normal now - its amazing how quickly they all become ill once school restarts.
I love this image which is a digi stamp free from Sketching Stamper . I have painted it in watercolours - Derwent Intense colours and added black gems to the centre. The back ground paper is french script by Hot of the Press matted onto cerise cardstock. I have managed to do some stitching around the matted border and the sentiment and it just adds some extra chic to the whole card. The pearl in the corner is from Paper Cellar.

Its been ages since I have blogged! School starts and guess what? Four or five days later the kids all start going down with some illness or other......but fingers crossed we are back to school and flowing as normal. I have so little time for crafting recently...but I do am to rectify that....hopefully by the weekend. In the meantime a quick card using the Greeting Farm digital downloads Rachael and Lily - so adorable these girls.

Also the friday challenge from Splendid Stamping was emboss it - so I have dry embossed some pink cardstock using the crafters companion ultimate pro, pink and black gems from Paper Cellar, black ribbon, girls coloured with watercolour pencils, felt flower, black cardstock, pink brad from Dovecraft, black and white background paper free download.

The summer holidays are over and the kids are back to school tomorrow.....and the weather is set to be good for this week -typical LOL.

I have had very little time to craft over the past six weeks, but will hopefully get my mojo back and have some fun crafting over the next few weeks. My youngest was invited to a birthday party over the week - this little girl is his "girlfriend" and he constantly says he will definitely marry her! Anyway I had some specifications, could I make a card and a box for her gift (which he choose too as it had to be special) in pink and it had to be beautiful. He chose the image too for the card.

This is one of the new autumn stamps from Sugar Nellie and so adorable. I have coloured her with watercolour pencils, a little highlighting with white gel pen, pink cardstock, papermania background paper and sentiment from Designer Digitals.

The box entitled Pack a Picnic...the template is available from here and it is one of fantastic designs by Lauren Meader. It was so quick to make and quite spacious. I used the keepsake romance board for the scalloped edge, large brads, and pink and white cardstocks. I have made a pretty simple version, but I can see this little box being used many times from now on. The image is another from the Sugar Nellie Autumn sets which I have watercoloured.
