I'm back...

Hi best blogging buddies.....

Well firstly, can I welcome my new followers.... it always astounds me that people want to take a gander at what I make... so to have some new members via the Docrafts forum makes me very happy!  So a big welcome to you... hope you like what you see..

Now....  Yes I realise I've been back from my short break for a week and haven't posted...  but I think my mojo stayed down on the Isle of Wight....  cos I haven't been able to do a thing this week (apart from spend money on my stash which is just SOOOOOOOOOOO easy!)  I've actually been doing 'that dreaded word that starts with an H and ends with  K'... to get out of going into my craft room and gazing at my desk!  What's the matter with me? Mojo hol??????

Anyways.... I decided as it was raining today there was no escape... sooooo i got in there!  I've had this delicious digi image from the Paper Shelter (In the 20's) for a little while now, so decided it was about time I gave her some colour!  I used my promarkers to colour her in, then added glitter (of course...), then used my embossing tool to curve the image and then 3D'd her onto an oblong of card textured with my swiss dots embossing folder.  This was all layered onto a slightly larger rectangle of bazzill.  The DP in the background is from a K & Co pad - Classic K Charlotte, and that's layered onto bazzill kraft card. 

I've used some seam binding for the bow etc... then added flowers that I made with an MFT Die-namics die called Flower Trio and Leaf Trio which I got from Simon Says Stamp.  I cut them out in pink - then wiped a pink versamark teardrop over them, and sprinkled glittery embossing powder on them and heated.... i LOVE glitter!  These were all then held together with a pearl brad from WOC.    Oh and I added glossy accents to her shoes and bag but it's not showing up too well in the photo...

So there you go...   Hopefully I'll be back sooner rather than later... provided the rain keeps up! (OK...... I'm really wishing for sunshine!

Hugs to all and thanks for visiting, and big thanks for those that comment...

  1. Welcome back to blogland Christine - isn't it awful when you just can't get into the crafting mode. Doesn't look like your Mojo went very far away - this card is fabulous. The image is adorable - love that "aren't I gorgeous" expression on her face! The colour combo and embellishments are delicious!

    So in future, all you need to do is remember this saying - "Crafting Forever, Housework Never"
    Hugs, Sylvia xx
