Good afternoon :)

As my title says TGIF - Thank god it's Friday :) As im sure mostly everyone does I really look forward to Fridays sometimes it's because I've had a hard week, like the last few have been, sometimes it's because exciting things are happening on the weekend and sometimes every second friday it's because I get my children back from their Dad's house :) But today it's because they're going to their Dad's lol. Not to say I love "getting" rid of my children by any means but this last week has been a long one so it's nice to look forward to some adult Mummy time which includes drinks tonight for a work mates engagement party child free and without having to hassle my Mum for babysitting duties.

Anyway Im having an enjoyable Friday so far, dropped the little one off at daycare and hung around for a while chatting to the girls working, as it is also my work place. Now im home and feeling the urge to create for a change. Therefore I have a card below that I started colouring last night and put all together today to show you.

The image is a digi from Tickled Pink Stamps if you hurry over there for the next 24 hours they have an awesome sale on their digi's - cant complain about that! The digi Ive used is Party Pinkette August. I think she's super cute and of course couldnt be done in any other colour but my favourite - PINK I have used Copic markers to colour the image and the pinks I have used R81 R82 & R85 - My absolute favourite colour combination i dont think you can go wrong with those 3 colours. The paper is all from my cupboard so im not exactly sure where its all from. Of course my images would never be complete without my spicas pens!! Today ive used the clear one on her hair, her dress and her shoes :) I love that I was able to get out my sewing machine and sew around the edges as its only the second time Ive sewn on my cards I usually forget or cant be bothered lol. The bling is Kasiercraft and once again dont really do many projects without a bit of bling on them somewhere I think it just adds something special or extra to the piece.

Well I think thats enough for me for the moment. Its a beautiful day outside and a lovely relaxing day for crafting so I best be off and do some more before getting ready to go out later.

Im entering this card in Mad 4 Markers monthly challenge - Using R or RV

Happy crafting and hopefully you all have a relaxing weekend!

Missing in action . . . . . again

Lol yes once again I havnt blogged for an awfully long time. I have just now promised myself to make more of an effort to blog! And hopefully all things going well for me I will have a need to blog more often in the future lol. I have a little craft secret that I want one of my wonderful friends to discover on her own and not by me talking about it here hehehe.

Anyway while Im here I really wanted to show you all and tell you about the wonderful piece of news I have! One of my very creative and talented friends Cassandra who has been lucky enough to be on the design team at Kasiercraft this past year has whipped up a beautiful layout with kasiercraft's new papers "Lil Primrose" and has used a gorgeous photo I took of of my baby girl kaitlyn playing outside with daffodils one day last year. Im so excited as it was published in Kaisercraft's latest monthly magazine AND the actual layout has made its way over to America to be displayed on Kasiers stand at the yearly CHA show!!!!
When Cassie told me I was soo excited lol. So I went into the local scrapping shop saturday morning to get my copy. The smile on my face hasnt came off once for the last two days lol I just love the photo of my special baby girl and Cassie has done a great job making her look even more gorgeous. So a big thankyou to Cassie for making my kaity a little star in my eyes lol. Kaity will be soo excited to see it in the magazine lol. Here is the picture from the mag below :D

Last time I brought some card making magazines before xmas I got one with the most gorgeous little dinosaur stamps and papers so I think I might go put the kettle on and go and make up some cute little dinosaur cards just to have in the cupboard for emergencies, hopefully it will then inspire me to create something of my own.

Happy crafting :D
