I found my bug! and got a JOB!

Evening all!

Well crafty bug was hiding, but found him now so feeling very happy. Been a very good evening! I know I said I was going to have a no crafting day but the bug just appeared (I haven't asked him where he has been yet, but I will approach that subject later!) and so we had a session! This is what we created...

The card base was created from a 'scrap' of 12x12 I had laying around, The actual card is 6'' by 10'', so I now have to go and make and envelope!

While crafting I have to have the TV on for noise purposes, there was an advert for the new Disney film Tangled, I had said to Mark I wanted to go, the next moment my phone rang and it was a friend of mine asking if Milly and I would like to go to the premier on Sunday! If that wasn't enough she has then offered me a job, I haven't worked since Amelia's 2nd birthday, due to pregnancy ect and so I am now so excited about returning to work! I start on Wednesday, just a few hours a week!

Anyhow, back to my card. This morning I sat her looking around blogland and I came across Digi Doodle Shop, I looked at their children digis and fell in love with this little madam (but I also had to have the little boy they do too!!), I couldn't wait to play with her,

I am slightly annoyed with my-self though, I need to stock up on a few of my pro-markers that are 'running out' so to speak, I went past the shop today and forgot to go in. Her skin tone hasn't come out too well as my 'blush' has run out! But I will get one next time I pass. Her skin tone looks nothing in the photo I am trying so hard to blend my colours for different effects and tones, but I will learn in time!


This is a paper rose I have made from a tutorial I saw over at the Outlaws, I have had to cut the flower shapes by hand from a template as I have no flower punch (I do have one on order now!) It has come out a bit bigger than I wanted it too, but I don't think it looks too bad! Will be glad when my punch comes through so I can Play more!
