Fairymoon Sketch 12

Another weekend gone. But how nice is it to have lighter evenings.Lets hope that this yukky weather don't last to long. Bring back the sunshine.
Well this weeks Sketch I have used all my papers and the topper from the making cards Magazine. Reason being as I wanted to combine it with the colour combo. And I had been doing a catch up with my making cards mags. I had a few months that I hadn't had chance to read. so when I see these papers I thought excellent will use them this week on fairymoon sketch.
The pink ribbon came from my stash and I used some stickles on the topper just to add abit of sparkle.
All products used can be purchased from fairymoon crafts, even The Making Cards Magazine.

Crafty Sentiments Challenge 10#

Yesterday I got all the inserts in the cards I have made since January. All in clear bags and in my stock box at last. I now have a clear space to fill up again. Also got my laptop cleaned up. I only had to remove 4 programs and I was amazed in the difference.
Today I am having my little Niece for an hour or so. Izzy is 3, and a right little chatterbox. I may get some crafty bits out so she can make a card or something.
Anyway this is the first time I have entered a sketch over at Crafty Sentiments
I tried to take a photo of this card last night, but once uploaded it was yuk.

This is the sketch we had to follow

Here's my take on it.

Sketch Saturday

Tonight I decided I wasn't going to sit on my laptop and facebook it. So started having alook at blogs and next thing I am sat on sofa, with copics around me.
while putting this card together I had tears in my eyes, watching secret millionaire. oh how sad, but also very kind.
Anyway my card, I have to say I am chuffed with the outcome of this card. even more so because I made it this evening and its not very often I craft in the evening because of the light.

Fairymoon sketch 9

Well spent the weekend getting a wedding invitation order done. And lost my rag ,
I had printed and stuck in the inserts, got everything on the invites and then when I checked them, the insert had a letter missing. looked on the file I had saved and it was on there. so printer was the problem. so had to re do all the inserts. So spent a whole day and wasted alot of it.
After the problems with the inserts on Saturday, I really couldn't be bothered with any card making on Sunday, so apart from washing I had a lazy day, it was lovely. But where do these weekends go.
Anyway this weeks sketch for fairymoon crafts blog
