MY SISTERS BIRTHDAY
It's my Sister's birthday on Friday and to be honest I haven't done much crafting since Christmas - two reasons for this I think.....1) My craft desk and work space were combined and I moved my work space down into the dining room (temporarily) thinking it would be great to have a desk just for crafting, but I haven't done much at all since I moved. Usually I am working away, on my computer but looking longingly at inks and stamps and ideas are springing up in my head, so maybe it was a case of out of sight, out of mind and 2) I've quite got into crocheting and have been enjoying sitting in front of the TV, fleece blanket over me and discovering how relaxing it is to sit and crochet little flowers and trying new things out, making my own stitches up. Maybe now (at last) the weather is warming up a bit I will not need the cozy zone as much, lol It is my Son's birthday tomorrow, although I have already wished him happy birthday as he lives in Sydney so it is already Thursday morning there....but I sent him a shop bought card....OH NO!!!! I didn't have any ideas for him and time was running out - am I a bad Mother?
The main image was a Craft Stamper freebie and I stamped it into air dry clay, sponged some water spritzed ink over it and then rubbed in a little gilt cream. I added some glossy accents.....I rather like this stamp. The background paper is from an old Basic Grey pad.......Anyway I did enjoy making this so maybe I'm back on track and you will see more of me on here once again.
