So addicted . .

to anything space and robots at the moment. I have no idea why iam lol possibly its because the papers and stamps are just soo cute :)
Ive been so busy with sick kids and all other mumsy things this week that I havent been able to get enough time to blog. So while my oldest is having a sleep over at my mums and the younger two are in bed I thought id sit down and take the time to tell you about my lovely craft weekend away last week.

Five of my very good crafty friends and I decided to go away scrapping and crafting for the weekend to a country town called Buninyong - which for those of you who are unfamiliar is part of Ballarat in Victoria. Its a beautiful old town with gorgeous trees and scenery all around but . . it is also VERY cold at this time of the year lol. We arrived on the friday afternoon and after a trip to the local scrapping store called the Imagination Factory on Main road in Ballarat where I think we all purchased wayy to much lol we all headed back to start crafting. Many laughs were had by all and the old church where we were staying was just gorgeous!
Didnt really get as much things done as I would have liked to but just to get away for the weekend and not to have to worry about anything was worth it!
The card below was one of the cards I made over the weekend, not for anyone in particular but just because i love the image soo much and when I found the cuttlebug embossing folder I knew it would go with a space related stamp. I did make another special birthday card on the sunday that i cant show right now as its for my lovely friend Carly (Click on her name to go to her awesome blog and see her fantastic work) We havnt been able to catch up this week as yet so I wouldnt want her to see it up here on my blog first lol.
Anyway enough waffling, below is the space card I made :)

Not an overly close shot actually but couldnt resist getting the old singer sewing machine in the background! lol
I used Copics G07 and G14 im pretty sure once again just 2 markers lol. And for the spaceship I used the low C's sprry cant remember without getting them out to check lol. I used the Clear spica pen on the lights of the UFO to give it a nice effect - I just love spica pens lol. I also had an idea to use beads for his little antenna thingys lol. Then just used some coloured rubons in the green. I also stuck down some green rhinestones that I had in my drawers from when i used to be a Kaszazz consultant :) It was a great idea from a friend and I think it just gives it a bit extra.

Im entering this card into the Mad 4 Markers Spica pens challenge

Well I probably should get going to bed now its getting quite late in the night and i'm not feeling the best lol think my DD had given me her flu :(

Until next time happy scrapping :)
