TOMIC Get Inspired

Hi again,

I'm missing the kids loads, and there's times I'm just wandering waiting until 3, but saying that I'm enjoying having time to myself. I can still get a bit done when they're in but they're soon fighting when I leave the room, so I end up giving up as it's too stressful!

This card is for the TOMIC Get Inspired challenge, where there is also a photo for inspiration.

This is the first time I've coloured this Tilda in, and I'll be inking her up again, soon. I've carried the mistletoe from her hair through using a doohickey mistletoe border die. I thought the green layer I used looked too green, so I've calmed all of the edges down with White acrylic paint.

I've distressed the edges of Tilda with pumice stone ink, and then stamped gold Holly from stempelglede. The sentiment is from lili of the valley and I've made a tag using a sizzix die and jump rings. The White poinsettias are from wild orchid crafts and I've added a few stickles.

It was my daughters first full week at school last week, until 3 (as she's just started, in reception, as she was born after April the first 2 weeks she had to come home after dinner) and she was so proud of herself when she was awarded the star of the week award. Of course we were too. But then yesterday she was home poorly, and has kindly given me her bug-but I think I'm over the worst.

Such an eventful week and it's only Wednesday, lol.

Take care,

It's great the kids being back at school, I'm having loads of time to myself. My daughter is now in reception so they're both there until 3-it's great, I only have 1 pick up a day to do now.

My husbands middle daughter Charlotte is 21 in a few weeks and while I was browsing stamps I spotted 'Charlotte' from Kraftin' Kimmie and I couldn't not buy her.

Isn't she gorgeous? Her hair is amazing, and I love her well worn, well loved dolls.

I've coloured her with copics, and the papers are all Tim Holtz. I'm entering the card into Kraftin' Kimmie 'a sketch'.

I'm making great progress on my Christmas cards. I really should see which challenges I can make them for and I can keep in touch with the rest of blogland.

I'm going to have a mooch at challenges, and then get my stamps and pens out.

Take care,

Hugs Becky x

Red, Green and White

I must start off by thanking Mel for the quickutz die I was after. I've used it loads, thanks again hun.

The kids are now back at school, so once again time for mammy, yay! I've still been making cards for people, but they've been rushed when the kids are in bed, or when hubby has been in. Now time for making cards for fun.

I popped into the attic just to put things away, I keep having to have things and then have the fun of trying to find a home for them (and hopefully not forget that I've bought them, lol). While I was up there this card just happened to materialise, and yes there's still a load of bits waiting to find a home.

I've coloured the image in with copics. The papers are from basic grey. I've used magnolia doohickey poinsettia die, and used german glass glitter on the edges. The sentiment and ticket die are from whimsey.

I'm entering this into Lili of the Valley

Time to look through other challenges and see what else I can do for fun.
