Princess Charlotte


Hi how are you all? It feels like it has been ages since I have sat down and posted anything!! I arrived home from decorating absolutely exhausted, after a 7 hour drive..then 2 hours later My brother and sister in law arrived and stayed with us for a few days, so everything has been a tad hectic!!

Anyway There was a little parcel waiting for me when I got home, (so I have loads of new stuff as yes, I did manage to fit in a visit to 2 craft shops!!) My parcel was from Simon Says, with a couple of WOJ stamps that I ordered! Thanks to the lovely Charisma cardz!

I have been drooling over WOJ stamps forever..and yet had not got round to beginning my collection..I excitedly checked the challenge blog, and I have managed to get my stamps in time for the special anniversary challenge! Although I am quite disappointed as I don't really like the way my card turned out, and I cant really put my finger on the reason why.

To Make my card, I have used WOJ -Princess Charlotte, which I have coloured using my whisper pens, and then I used "Sakura" glitter gel pens and my water brush to give a shimmery effect. The papers are from "Bo Bunny - Alissa" then I have used some "Prima" flowers and some peel offs.

My Hubby is away for work this weekend, will miss him terribly, but I am hoping to get loads of crafting done, feels like it has been ages since I have had a good crafting session to myself!
