Hello friends how are we all?!
Well I am just busy, busy as always! I have finished making my chilli jam/relish. I will post photos later honest! I am also going to make another batch of my xmas chutney as I have far too many requests for it (teach me for putting photos on facebook!) Not to mention that I have been given a few commission orders for cards (yay!) and then as hubby is having an op on his legs next week and is therefore off work for a couple of weeks, I have volunteered to do 5 days at work (ha!) I know I'm officially crazy but it keeps me (too) busy!
So, order of the day! We have a new challenge over at Creative Inspirations and it's a sketch this week. We are sponsored by the wonderful Stamp fairy who have given the DT images to play with.
I have used DCWV papers which I have had in my stash for AGES, seriously we are talking years here! along with a beautiful butterfly from Kays Kreative Korner, some flowers from WOC and Kort & Godt and a sentiment from Waltzingmouse. My tabs are cut with nesties labels 1 and I have gone slap happy with my crackle paint again!
My adorable Barry Angel image from Stamp fairy has been coloured with prisma pencils. I have stickled his wings and starts and have machine stitched all my edges. I don't know whether you can really see it but all my mounting card is that black magic stuff. So even though it is black I have distressed the edges for the pinks and purples to come through.
Ii have to say a mahoooosive thanks to the lovely Fleur! I was going stir crazy waiting for my cheesecloth (which has now arrived) but she told me she used medical gauze instead of cheesecloth. So I raided the first aid basket and whadayaknow I have gauze! So thats what you can see here under the layers!
I also have to say massive proud mummy moment yesterday. I had parents eve for my youngest 2 at primary and both are doing really well. Caleb's teacher even said if she had a class full of Calebs she would be happy! He is top of his class for phonics and in the top group for maths and reading (guess all the home schooling is paying off!)
I would like to enter my card into Dream valley anything goes, IDIC anything goes and Sweet stampin anything goes,.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog folks
