Hello All,

I am still here, I have a feeling she will be late!! On the upside I was able to sit and have a little play last night, just for the sake of it. I made 2 cards, both of which I am reasonably happy with, which is amazing it has been so long since I have made anything, when I do sit down I hate everything I make, and feel like I have lost all crafting ability.

I am having to craft with limited resources which is proving an added challenge, My craft space is now in the loft, and with a huge belly and swollen ankles it is a little difficult!! so I literally have a little bag with a few essentials, some card blanks, my copics and prismas.

One thing it has meant is that I have rediscovered some of my cd roms, as they are downstairs with the computers ... what an amazing resource, I don't use them nearly enough, I buy them falling in love with images or papers I print out a few things when I first get them, and then forget about it, as when I start crafting I use some of the paper I have to hand ...... so this card has been made from crafty goodness stored on my computer, and my copics!

card blank -Kanban
Image - Saturated Canary
Paper - Polkadoodles (Sundae of Seasons)
Colouring medium - copic's
Colour tinting - distress ink tumbled glass & Antique linen

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Craft your Passion - Anything Goes
Cup Cake - Yellow&Red
Papertake weekly - Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T - Inspired by a song (Umbrella - Rihanna)

  5. Hi hun, I can sympathise with the CDrom thing. I too, print a load of stuff off and then put them in a folder and very rarely use them - what a waste. That's why in my last post I just say who did the paper etc not necessarily which CDrom as I can't remember!!!
    Beautiful card hun, love those bright colours.
    Fingers crossed that you won't have to wait too much longer. Big hugs Ali x
