I am so behind after a surprise visit from my sister that I should have posted three hours ago! Why is it when you decide to be good and do what you have to when you have decided you will, something steps in and it all goes to pot? It's just one of those things!
Being the new host of the Digi Challenge over on Docrafts, I decided on making a sketch and choosing a fairy theme for those interested to follow.
This is the sketch which I managed to mock up on the Paint accessory on my computer - it took me flipping ages to get anywhere near right and then trying to upload it was hard too since I had saved it as a word doc and had to convert it back to a jpeg file in order to upload it. Why do I do these things? I got the sketch from Simply Cards and Papercraft mag.
I also got the idea of the newspaper punching from the same mag and the photo does not do it justice. It really looks lacey. I used my Martha Stewart punch to cut the frill but it had a meltdown - for some reason it hates paper. I stuck some newspaper onto card to punch out the ribbon piece and it worked perfectly again!
The fairy digi stamp is a freebie by Sharon Bennett. The sentiment is a digi from Lynne Salmon. Colour by Promarker. Green swirly double sided backing paper and ribbon from Caroles Crafts and card candy was a gift from my crafting pal Bernadette.
The lovely thing about yesterday, in addition to my lunch with Mum, was a great big parcel of goodies from Bernadette. She is so very generous and shares loads with me - we both look for bargains and bogoffs so that we can share!
The horrid thing was going to see our prospective new car - Mr H and I noticed some discrepencies with the actual car and the description we had been given of it. We are going back tomorrow to speak to Kevan, who was off yesterday but has been dealing with us, but Mr H is not a happy bunny!
I need to do some crafting but doubt I will get much of a chance so cheerio for now,
