Its been a while..

and for that I apologise.. a lot has been happening at home. BUT!! Finally, after winning 6-1 at darts tonight and coming home on a high, I sat down, and created a card. Which I must say.. I'm quite happy with - no colouring with ProMarkers and no stamping - it was really relaxing allowing myself to get crafty after so long not sitting at my desk. I know I have been posting cards etc, but they are all scheduled in advance, so here is a card for you tonight/early hours of this morning fresh off the press.. (sorry about the crap photos)

This has been made for a friend on the Trimcraft forum, its her 30th, obviously, so I wanted to make her something special. I hope it makes it through the post okay!! At first I wanted my card to include Cupcake Cherrie - which is available over at Tickled Pink Stamps - but I really couldn't be bothered to colour her in (no offence Cherrie - you're still a cutie), so I took a look at this weeks Mojo, and thought, yes!! That will be perfect!!

Cardstock: Bazzil Bling - Feather Boa, In The Pink, Bazzill - Kraft, SU! Rose Red, Ruby Red
Patterned paper: Sassafras - Indie Girl
Ribbon: 13mm silk ribbon - White from The Ribbon Girl
Pin: extra long vintage - white from The Ribbon Girl
Gems: Kaisercraft - Ice Blue Rhinesones
Dies: Nesties - classic scalloped circle large, standard circles large
Tools: Tonic paper distresser, SU! Mat pack and paper piecer
Misc: white gel pen, WRMK embroidery floss - bubble gum, watermelon

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Mojo Monday - #175
× Colour Create Challenge - #62 - Pink, Blue, Gray and White
× Charisma Cardz Challenges - #3 - Magic Numbers

Well, its my first day back at uni today since before Christmas - I'm leaving it a bit late to get to bed - considering I have to be up at 7! LOL. Thats going to be a struggle!!

Oh well, I'm going to upload my picture for WOYWW and be done for the night I rekon.

Thanks for stopping by, have a good day. xo
