It's been too long

>> Wednesday, 18 May 2011

Hello, it does seem an age since I last posted on my blog. Life is busy busy busy; whoever it was who told me that life goes crazy fast when you have children was so right! I can't quite believe that we have been visiting infant schools recently ready for our application for Sept 2012 as it only seems like yesterday that Thomas was a newborn. He's had a few adventures recently too. Last week he lost control of his bike and fell into the little stream that runs alongside the footpath and today he fell off his bike at nursery and now has an egg size lump on the back of his head. He's OK, just a bit bruised but nothing that the promise of a gingerbread man couldn't fix!

In an attempt to kick start my creative mojo I had a little shopping spree at the Craftz Boutique last week and it seems to have worked! My inspiration for this card came from Kim's Blog. Kim is one of my favourite bloggers and all her cards have the WOW factor so I CASE'd one of her creations.

I used the same layout that Kim used for her card but used a different image, papers, etc. Tilda is coloured with a mixture of distress inks and aqua pens. The papers are a mixture of Prima and Fancy Pants and the flower is also from Prima. All the edges are inked with Walnut Stain distress ink.

This card fits quite a lot of challenges:

Stamp with Fun - Green & Pink
Creative Card Crew - Cute & Girly
Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Bloom & Grow
Stampavie & More - Summer
Just Magnolia - Make it Lacy
Stamp Something - Anything Goes
Magnolia Down Under - Favourite Things (the Prima flowers are definitely my new favourite things)

Thanks for visiting, I'd love to know what you think of my card and I hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

This is so gorgeous Sharon! Kim's blog is always a good place to start for some inspiration, isn't she?
Love the papers and embellishments you used on this one and the image is perfectly coloured.
Anyway, enjoy the young years while you can; they do fly by and before you know it they've flown the nest. He'll love being a grown up boy at infant school!
