Don't die of shock ! Yes, I'm blogging again !!! I've had quite a crafty weekend seeing that the "Cat's" been away and I have managed to finish two DT pieces and made a card for a challenge so I feel really chuffed with myself.
My good friend Lorriane from Simon Says Challenge has joined up with 5 more of her friends and started a challenge blog called "Totally Papercrafts". Their first challenge consists of a blog hop and the challenge is "Friends". Their first sponsor is Simon Says Stamp and the prize is a gorgeous Hero Arts cling stamp - ooooh yummy !!!
The DP's are 3Bugsinarug "Happy Bird-day".
The image is of course Anya and she has been coloured with ProMarkers. I have stamped some Whiff of Joy flourishes around the edge in antique linen distress ink.
The friends stamp is by Hero Arts and this has been stamped in Elzybells Strawberry Fool ink. The ribbon was destined for the bin but then I found this use for it ! Just goes to show you shouldn't throw anything away ! The button (which I sewed onto the homemade tag) is from Elzybells "Strawberry Fool" buttons. Elzybells have a terrific new range of co-ordinates which if you are like me, you will just fall in love with !
The pearls are from my stash.
I hope you too can join them as its a very easy challenge to take part in.
Right, must go and tend to my roast port - yummy.
The girls have been playing "pirates" all afternoon and have made a pirate ship from a margarine container, a cannon from a roll of paper and have been "blowing" canon balls at me while I've been making my card ! It's not just boys who get into bother !!! At the moment they are sword fighting with coat hangers and I just know I'm going to have tears any moment ! Poor Fizzy is being made to be "Hook" while "Peter" is trying to kill her - lovely !!! Wish you could hear the conversation going on that I can hear !!! - ummm, perhaps not !!!!
Thank you for your visit and for any comments you leave. As always, they always mean so much to me.
