You're a Star!

Hi there!

Wow - another week rolled by so quickly!  Suffice to say I'm still here and bearing up under the weight of being a working single mom for this past week!  Hubby will be back late Friday night - geez, it can't come quick enough!!

Anyways, I was asked to make a thank you card for a synchro coach ... mmm, that had me stumped for a minute!  Well, this is what I came up with and I've used the colours of the team (Blue & Black).  It's hard to see but there is some cheesecloth behind the coloured image which I've glued the little silver stars on to.  The punched borders are from a Fiskars punch and the flip flops are from a stamp in my stash.  The sentiment stamp is from PWCO and the image I found on the web.

Here's another view of the card.  I hope she likes it - I know she had told me she searched all the regular card shops and couldn't find anything to fit the bill.  I'm really quite pleased with the finished result.

Well, that's me.  I need to get dinner cooking and then ready for work.  I'm providing dinner but my neighbour is feeding my boys tonight!!  Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping in and for any comments you may leave!

You're never more than a thought away ...

Hi there!

Another long absence since my last posting.  My crafting has been sadly neglected lately but I did manage to get some time in there today as it's a Bank Holiday Monday ... yippee!!  This is an LOTV stamp that arrived in my collection a while back and I'm only getting ink on it now .. oh well, better late than never, right?!

Image is coloured with copics and I've followed the sketch from the Sketch Saturday Challenge this week.  Papers are from MME Pretty Please Collection and the sentiment is from SU!  Ribbon, pearls, flowers, cheesecloth and punched border are all from stash.

Here's a close up of the coloured image for you.

And in keeping with my New Years resolution to finish off the insides of my cards at the time of making them, here is a peek inside.  It's finished off following the same layout as the main outside panel.

Challenges I'm entering this card in for:-

Cupcake Craft Challenges - 'Book Lover'
The Crafty Pad - 'Bingo' (Ribbon/Flowers/Bling(pearls))
Moving Along with the Times - 'Keep it Real'
Papertake Weekly - In the Garden
Stamptacular Sunday - In the Garden

That's all for now folks.  Not sure when I'll be back with another creation as hubby has just gone off to Asia for 2 weeks on another business trip ... that means 'single mom' time again and not much time for anything else ... but we'll see!!

Thanks for stopping in for a visit - I always appreciate you coming by and for any comments you may leave!

Welcome May ... a calendar page

Hello there!

So sorry for the long silence but as always, life gets busy and tends to take over - I'm sure I'm not the only one!!!  This is the first time I've managed to sit in my craft room and create ... my mojo has been a little lost too I have to say!

Well, here we are in May already - can you believe it!  I coloured up this cutie LOTV fairy with my copics and made the calendar page around that.  Papers are MME and Graphic 45.  Flowers, lace, pearls and sentiment are from my stash.

Thanks for stopping in - I really do appreciate it.  I hope I can get back to some regular crafting soon!!
