Hearty Hello

Afternoon everyone - thank you for stopping by today for my My Mum's Craft Shop so late on in the day.

I'm having some seeeerious technological issues lately. My poor laptop is on it's way out me thinks. The laptop itself is fine, but my screen keeps turning itself off and flickering. It seems to be having a good day today.. so we'll so how long it takes me to type this blog post up. Fingers crossed all goes well and I'll get a few more scheduled! :)

So!! It's a free week over at My Mum's Craft Shop so I decided to use some Tiddly Inks goodness! :)

I used the adorable Fairy Heartfelt along side one of the sentiments.
I coloured her up using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers - I kept the background very simple, but looking back I wish I had gone all out with hills and sky (I didn't know I was going to be using her on a calendar easel card) - next time! :) 

I cut up a bunch of papers from My Minds Eye Collectable - Memorable collection (I only have a few slices of this paper left, it seriously pleases me when I actually start to use up a paper pack - makes more room for new stuff, right? HAH!)

I wanted to layer up my die cut oval onto a scalloped shape - but the only one I had was huuuuuuuge, so instead I pulled out my Bo Bunny Doilies which I had yet to break out!! Perfect for the job. I cut a chunk out the middle to make sure it fit around my oval nicely.  

I finished the design off with some Prima flowers and Hobby House Rhinestones in Jade Green. Just delicious. Oh, and I, once again, used the Tonic Edger Punch 2 to create a mat beneath my floral paper.

Phew, that only took 20 minutes or so! LOL. My boyfriend spent Tuesday night tryna sort it out for me, but I don't think it's gonna hold up. Maybe if I ask Santa for a laptop with my sweetest voice?! Paaahahah!! Don't make me laugh - I've been a terribly naughty girl and will not be receieving anything off Santa this year.

Again, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to stop by the My Mum's Craft Shop blog for daily inspiration! xo
