Afternoon all...

... hope you are all well!!  Its holiday time here and the boys are off so trying to think of things to do because if I didnt they'd be on the xbox 24 hours a day and we cant be having that!!  (although it would make for an easier agument free life!! lol)

Still dont seem to find any crafty time, but I've got a couple of pics of cards saved and can blog one now.  I made this card for a lovely crafty bud:

The image is a Saturated Canary, coloured with promarkers, matted onto kraft card, raised with 3d tape.  The papers were from a magazine paper pack again matted onto Kraft, the die cut is a memory box die with pearls added, I've then added twine and and a charm from my stash.  The sentiment is just printed from word.

I would like to enter this into:

Papertake weekly - Build it up
I love promarkers - Pets.
Aud sentiments  - anything goes with sentiment
Its awfully quiet upstairs, off to see what they are up to :-)

Thanks for looking

Hello, hello....

... yay!! a make and a post!! I keep saying this but I just dont know where the time goes, I must be really good at wasting it as I never seem to have any time to do any crafting - so ideas would be appreciated as to how you structure your day to fit in crafting would be great.

In my defence it is getting near the end of the school year and my youngest is enjoying his last week there, so we have been busy with leavers perfomances, sports days and an awards ceremony for the eldest.  Which reminds me - I think on my last post he was going for the Head Boy interview, he didnt get that position but did get senior house prefect and was happy with that (although I must admit to being a bit gutted for him :-( ).

Have you seen theres a relatively new challenge blog and shop about - called Handmade Bliss.  This is a card I've made for their July sketch challenge:

The image is Stamping Bella (the sentiment comes with the stamp), coloured with promarkers and matted on to brown bazzill.  The dp's are basic grey and flowers from my stash.

I've made this for my mums friend who has a very spoilt cat - only eats m&s prawns, likes to be hand fed - you get my drift - lol.  (it gets better looked after than my kids!!)

Right off for a cuppa and catch up of the Tour de France... hmmm.... that could be why I dont get any crafting done... cough!!
