Hello Well the spring has sprung and everyone appears to be happy now the sun is shining. We have had two glorious days here in London. I have had to be out and about doing jobs and making it to appointments of various kinds so the perfect weather.
My youngest,Max, who will be two next week (my that has whizzed by) had his 12 month injection today. Being a small man he is not the best patient and he cried in the waiting room without even seeing the needles. He is having a wee nap so all seems okay. I came home and was just starting work on this card and the phone rang. Harry my eldest son had smashed his nose on the playground. I went in and he seems okay now but it looked bruised. Apparently there was a huge amount of blood and this scared Georgina my eldest daughter. He wanted to stay at school as they are making fire engines out of butter tubs and he has cooking club. They are going to keep an eye on him.
This card is for two challenges It's a crafters companion have a sketch and a colour theme. The colour theme is cream, gold and one other colour so I chose this purple. I used design set from an older crafters companion CD rom called Papercrafts set two. I love the papers as you can use them to make flowers like this one. It was a great excuse to dig out the CD rom too. I used a swirl stamp which is the theme at Tuesday taggers (swirls and curls) I used some distress ink to make it more cream coloured. I used my Martha Stewart doily lace punch and added some gems. The ribbon is from my stash too.
Tuesday Taggers are sponsered by Crafty Individuals so hop over and take a look at the challenge blog and their shop.
