Since Christmas our house has seen - 3 chest infections, a sinus infection, 2 throat infections, 2 vomiting bugs and a chest infection. We have had 4 lots of antibiotics and one child is still sick! Needless to say I am so over this sickness and crafting was the last thing on my mind. The first full weekend of the new year we ventured to our holiday home and I packed a craft bag, with really good intentions, but when the fire is lit and the house is warm and cosy, sometimes I fall asleep and no crafting gets done.
This time, the little one was not sleeping well with the end of her cough, so she woke a ridiculous o'clock one morning and I spent 3 hours keeping her amused in the kitchen to stop the noise from traveling to the sleeping family. In an effort to let her play a little I took out my craft bag and while she ruined my stamp pads, wrecked my scissors and cut my papers up into confetti, I managed to make this card - and then a few more of the same design.
All products are Papertrey Ink and I just adore this card. Simple to make, and I think I would be happy to receive a card like it. PTI have some new stamp pads and from the first few uses, I like them and have the rest of the collection in my virtual shopping bag for when I can justify the expense of more crafty spending. I did make 8 of these cards so I think that it counts towards using up the stash mountain, and saving money too!
I had the stamps out and made this card up too, it's a bit more grown up and it started off as a Birthday card but didn't look cheery enough for me so I finished it and made a different card that I will share soon.
As the kids were sick, and I had some family and other stuff going on I fell behind in my Crafty Bloggers DT work, but I am working hard to catch up and get back ahead of the challenges. I uploaded 2 tonight and will share them when I can.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and I will try and get back early next week.... I think I might be featured on Melissa Francis blog some time soon too! Yah!
