Thank you for stopping by! This is a post no 200! Wow! What a crazy 9 months I've had :)
I'd like to welcome my new blog buddies! Thank you for joining me here! You're a fabulous and talented bunch! I hope you will enjoy my future posts.
What a week I've had so far!! There has been ups like winning the Top 3 at The Little Bit Crafty and downs like having to have to get a new washing machine and staring blankly at about 10 loads of washing whilst my younger daughter having 39*C+ temperatures for the last three days and nights and visibly in pain every night. I ended up not sleeping for three days and any sleep I got was sitting and holding her! I took her to the doctors on Tuesday, got some medicine and was asked to get a wee sample for them as they couldn't see any signs of an infection. Well, collecting a sample from a baby is easier said than done! They give you a sticky sachet to be attached and a nappy can be put on. Our first go was a massive failure as it all leaked out into her nappy, the second one she pooed on and the third go was a success! It turns out that there is not infection so it was probably her big teeth cutting through. My goodness!
Needless to say that I didn't do any crafting until today. It is impossible to craft with a crying one year old stuck to your leg... that if you can stay awake... however today was a better day and I got to make a quick-ish card using Brushos, my white Wow! embossing powder, the Jumbo butterfly by Stampendous and a bit of bleachy water. I also die cut a tag, made a little tassel and stamped my Hero Arts Sentiment with my black Stazon. I can't get enough of Brushos right now and this background was another one of my experiments. I tried to use them as watercolours and paint a poppy! Let's put it this way... I need more practice before I can show you a 'real' watercolour art. In the meantime, here's my card..
I hope you like it! Feel free to share your thoughts, I always like to hear from you.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog - Finishing Touch
Pan Pastel UK - Add some embossing
Try It On Tuesdays - Animals
Simply Create Too - It's a Special Occasion
I'm working on something spoooookylicious and hope to share it with you soon! :)
Many thanks and all the best!
