Hubby cooked, bless him, so I could catch up on some long overdue crafting! So here are today's offerings.
All the stems are from Beccy's Place and the butterflies are from the Digi Stamp Boutique. Sentiment from Waltzing Mouse.
I coloured them all with Derwent Watercolour pencils, which I love. I use them with my Whispers blender pen and it gives a great finish.
I finished off the butterflies with a dash of GlimmerMist for a bit of sparkle.
Thanks for looking! xx

Morning all!  It was Lil G's birthday last week so we took her and three of her friends out for the day to a local theme park.  They had a brilliant time and we gave them each a pink baseball cap so that we could find them amongst the many, many, many other small hooligans!  Here they are having an ice-cream break.... yup, that's mine.. the one with the ice-cream moustache!! x

Hi all!  Bit of a late one, but I wanted to get this in before going to bed... Lil G's birthday yesterday and we're taking her and three friends to a theme park for the day tomorrow - woo.  Anyway, what also happened yesterday was that we got Sky installed at home.  The man came and stuck a nasty little wok on the side of my house and left us a little black box that does all kinds of clever stuff. 
And he also left us the cardboard box that the little black box was delivered in.... Now, maybe I just have a dark side but this little box is still here, on the living room floor, and I keep giggling at it...

So I've left it on the floor in front of the bookcase.. asleep.  And it hasn't moved an inch since yesterday.  Not sure how it's helping the planet or our electricity bill - it just seems to be taking up space, but it seems a shame to wake it up!!! xx

Us again!  Here is a set of oriental cards that Lil G made for Mother's Day!  I love the colours and her designs - nothing to do with me! 

The papers and chipboard toppers were part of a freebie set that came with a craft magazine and she loves the bright colours.  I think she's done a really good job. 
She has made a set of four because there is one each for both Grandmothers, one for an Aunt and another one for a lovely lady we call Nanna 3; she's not related but she might as well be!

Right, I'm off to start my own cards now! xx


Hi all!  At last I've got around to some crafting, so here you are... the first one of the day!  It's for a very good friend of mine and I made it using Waltzing Mouse's 'Asian Garden Additions' stamp set.  Hope she likes it!
Off to start work on Lil G's birthday card now.. Can't believe she'll be 8 on Thursday!!! Have a great weekend xxx

Morning all!  It's O/H's birthday today (which is why I couldn't publish this earlier!) and Lil G thought that you might like to see the card she made.  She chose the image, coloured it with watercolour pencils and assembled it.  I cut it all out for her.  The card background is PP's craft card and the sentiment is printed on the pc.  I think it's gorgeous and Daddy loves it!  TFL x
