New Challenge #231 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hi there,
Well things have been very hard for the last few weeks,
but hopefully they are starting to settle down again.
Not only major Drama on the home front,
but I have been laid up ill for the last 2 weeks.
Thought I was just a basic Cold,
but UGGG, it got me good,
every inch of me feels like its been battered and bruised.
But now I'm back (ish) 
and happy to be crafting again.
I know can you imagine it,
so ill I haven't crafted for 2 weeks.

The Theme at
Anything Goes

Our Sponsor this week is:-
Ppinky Dolls who are offering
3 Images from their store

My Project this
week is:-
Kawaii Betty Digi Stamp
To begin with I used a Pre-cut White Base Card
(stash)
I then covered the inside Back with a 
piece of  Dark Cerise Card
(stash)
I also used the 'Flower' Template to cut out a
piece of Gold Metallic Card
(stash)
which is attached to the inside Front.

Next I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens.
Almond
Satin
Putty
Blush
Blossom
Pink Carnation
Rose Pink
Cerise
Sunkissed Pink
Coral

I also used a White Shake'it Pen
(Graph' It )
to highlight the Dots on the Head Bows.

I then Die-cut the Image out
using a medium Circle Die.
(Sizzex)

I decided the Front of the Card 
looked plain being just White.
So using Pink Ink
(Versa Colour - 33)
I sponged it all over the Front of the Card.
I also used the Pink Ink to 
edge the Image Circle.

I then added my Sentiment,
using the Clear Stamp,
'Some Bunny Loves You..'
(Daisy and Dandelion)
and Tuxedo Black Ink
(Momento)

Finally I added 1mm Seed Pearls
(stash)
to the Pearl Rope on the Little Girls Head.

New Challenge #4 at Morgan's ArtWorld

And I'm Back,
Well I'm sure you have noticed but I have 
had a mini Sabbatical from Crafting.

Just been trying to get myself all sorted,
as I was feeling very Swan like.
You know that feeling where it all looks 
serene and peaceful on top,
but down below its all frantic paddling and chaos.
But now I feel like got everything back in its proper place
and balance has been achieved.

I will be back as normal in March

New Challenge #220 at Glitter N Sparkle

HAPPY NEW YEAR,
and I wish you all the most joyous 
2017.

Well after a lovely time away,
(despite my parents getting stuck in Norway,
where it took them 4 days to get home
 due to the weather being so bad,
their Flights were being cancelled all the time.)
we are all back home where we belong.

But I think the best news, we as a family have had,
is my Brothers news.
He and his wife are expecting,
and yes to make it more fun they are having
un-identical TWINS.
(hence this weeks project)
I am wishing them both and my nephew
all the best in the coming months,
and I can't wait to meet my new
Nephew and Niece.
