A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Birthday Princess

Hiya everyone! Hope you are all keeping nice 'n' cosy and dry!  What awful, dire weather we're having -rain, rain and more rain!! Oh well, just another excuse to stay indoors and craft :) 

It's just a quick post from me today as I really need to start making Christmas cards .... no time like the present I guess!

Tomorrow is my youngest daughter's 24th birthday and bless her heart, I asked her what she'd like for her birthday and her reply was "Just to come over to yours Mum for a yummy lamb roast"!  Awww! I know that, apparently, no-one can cook like your own Mum but I was secretly chuffed that, after all these years, she actually still CHOOSES to taste my home cooking!!! ;) 

Well, onto my card .... I have made this cute little number for her little bro to give to her.  This little beauty is called Princess Rose Red from Saturated Canary.  How adorable is she?

I coloured Rose Red up using a mixture of Copics, Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs.  I thought I'd give green a go this time.  I usually stay away from green - who knows why, as I have no reason for this - and I think it turned out not too bad :)

I treated myself yesterday and bought a distressing tool (as I've been using my scissors up to press and have scars on my fingers to show for it) and now I want to distress everything!! It's so much fun and a lot less pain....

I bought the gorgeous jute, metal corner embellishment and the gorgeous stamens from Live and Love Crafts and wow, what an amazing little treasure trove it is there!   I coloured up some white ribbon with my Ivory promarker and added a large pearl brad on the bow.  The purple carnations and leaves are from WOC and the roses from The Hobby House

Okay, I apologise .... this post wasn't as quick as I expected it to be .... but I did try to keep it short and sweet :)
