Hi everyone … well with 2 sick kids at home yesterday … it meant that I had a chance to sit and stamp ALL DAY!!! Yes … I know … I should have used the time to get organised to go away camping … and Yes … I will probably pay for it later … but I was enjoying myself soooooo much!!! 😀
So … I started with a Sketch Challenge from Amy Rysavy … and it was a great sketch. One that I will probably used again and again! Mine is a little different … but that is the great thing about a sketch … you start with the idea … and then make it your own!
I have to tell you …. I LOOOOVE the new DSPs that I bought from the new catalogue. I was just hanging out for some new papers … and somehow just opening the packets got my creative juices flowing! It is amazing what some new colours & designs do for the mojo!!!
- Card & Papers: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Bella Rose DSP
- Stamp Set: Crazy for Cupcakes
- Main image: Stamped with Riding Hood Red stamp pad & water coloured with Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red ink & aqua painter
- Phrase: Stamped with Riding Hood Red then punched with large oval punch & sponged with Pink Pirouette around the edges
- Ribbon: Brand new Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla satin ribbon
- Bling: Dazzling Diamonds added to cupcake icing using 2-way glue pen
So we are off to Forster for the Easter weekend – camping!!! I hope all the coughs & colds clear up … and that we don’t have miserable kids all weekend!
But … I am hoping … that I can find the time to do a couple of extra posts today … and store them to be posted to my blog during the weekend … just as an Easter treat for all my blog buddies!!! I hope it works … so you can check them out over the next couple of days. (Don’t expect one every day, though!!!)
