Hello !

It seems such a long time since I made a card or even had the mojo to make a card but I MUST as I have a magazine commission which needs to be done ! Having chicken pox in the house seems to have zapped everything - perhaps its cabin fever ? On the plus side, the spots are finally getting better  (although she is now full of cold, bless her).  

While travelling around on my Pad I spotted a fabulous sketch by Iwona which gave me a lightbulb moment so not wanting to waste a moment's inspiration I got to work !!





I've incorporated my love of embossing paste, splatting spray ink and this Mama Elephant cute stamp set.  I paper pieced the umbrella too.

As always, you can see links to everything I used below.

Thank's for the inspiration Iwona !!

Have a great Sunday !

Up and Away !

What a glorious day ! 

 I have managed to escape and make a couple of cards this afternoon. I say escape because we have chicken pox in the house :( My poor little one is suffering terribly and the only thing that seems to relieve the itch is a bath in bicarb of soda so we are spending our days sat in the bathroom.  If we are not sat in the bathroom then I'm having to endure Sophia The First for the 9999999th time !  Do you know I could play the part myself ?!  We have just finished another bath, Sophia is on and I managed to slide out of the door !

I am loving the new trend in watercolour.  I have been so inspired this week I just had to make another watercoloured card and mix it with some heat embossing.

There are a few challenges at the moment featuring watercolouring and similar that I can enter my card into :


Virginia's View Challenge #1 - Watercolouring 
CAS On Sunday - One Layer Wonder
CASE Study



The watercolour paints belong to my little girl !  I just love how you can grab cheap paints and make an impact (well, hopefully !!).

I was so pleased I chose the charcoal ink, its much softer than black and has a watercoloured look to it I think.

Well, must go and tend to my patient.  Hopefully tomorrow she may feel more up to doing something as she loves coming and playing with me while I'm making cards.

I hope you have a great Sunday and enjoy this gorgeous sunshine !
