You know when you have those days when you spend more time browsing the internet for crafting goodies or looking at blogs and forums for inspiration than you do actually crafting? I started this card Friday evening and its now finally finished on Sunday evening! It's for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge which is entitled "the two of us". I used a sketch from the Ismaki challenge a few weeks ago for my layout. The papers are Basic Gray and I've coloured Lilly & Milo with watercolour pencils. I made the flower embellishments from shrink plastic, the sentiment is stamped onto a die cut shape and the ribbon is from my stash.

This is my first card for the Splitcoast Stampers forum. They have some great challenges and this one was a sketch which you can find here. I used some paper from my new BG pack, together with bazzil cardstock. The fairy and toadstool are from a Woodware clear stamp set "Fairy Delights". I really love this sketch and its one I will definitely use again.

Today was my first day back at work after maternity leave. It was a bit overwhelming at first but it wasn't long before I felt as though I'd never been away! Thomas didn't get on quite so well and was very tearful at the in-laws. Hopefully it won't take him too long to get used to being left.

It's been AGES since my last entry. I do have a good excuse though, I've made a start on reorganising and decorating our bedroom and the junk had to go somewhere - you guessed it - my crafting room! Which means I couldn't actually get to my desk for quite a while!! But I've had a tidy up and I'm back in the land of cardmaking! I'm so excited as I ordered my Cuttlebug yesterday! I was going to wait and put it on my Christmas list but decided that was too long to wait and CraftsULove had it on offer so I ordered it and a few embossing folders. I also bought a few bits from the craft shop at Bluewater today; a lovely Basic Grey paper pack with matching brads and some cardstock. So I'm ready to go!
Here is a card I put together quickly last night for the Papertake challenge. The paper is from DCWV oriental matstack and the stamp is from a Woodware clear set. The paper is so pretty I didn't want to add another pattern so kept it simple and as the sentiment wouldn't fit into a circle I stamped it at the bottom and added a chinese coin instead.
