Warm it UP!!


Back to work after a lovely weekend off. Managed to get ahead with a few bits of DT work, and got a few orders finished up. The list is never ending though, keeps me busy!! Got two long days at work and darts on Tuesday night.. so I'll probably be pooped come Wednesday!! LOL! Work aside..

Time for a new challenge over at Pollycraft today. Thank you to everyone who joined in last week, it is a real pleasure looking through all of the entries.. especially the crafters who take the time out to use Pollycraft images. :)

This week we have a new challenge which has been set by our lovely Mary J.. we want to see you


There are still a lot of winter/ Christmas creations bobbing around blogland, including posts on my blog.. so we want you to warm things up for us. Interpret this any which way you like.. I've decided the make a spring time card using some papers I just can't tear myself away from right now. My Minds Eye - Breeze. Wow.

I've stamped my white linen card base with some button stamps from SU! in Bashful Blue and Sage Shadow as it was looking a little empty. I used some scraps of paper and made a base panel to which I adhered everything to. I used some bakers twine and super jumbo ric rac from The Ribbon Girl as well as a mix of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.. but what's new?!

I cut Sonny Honeycloud out using a Labels Four die and sponged a sky background. I've coloured Sonny using Copics and ProMarkers. Love the flowers in her hair and those little butterflies. Too cute.

Spring Has Sprung. Well.. it'll be on it's way soon. I'm sure of it!! :)
