Hello ... it's me!

Hello my lovelies it's been a really long while since I've posted anything on my little old blog in fact it's been a long time since I've actually crafted.  Last year was a really hard year for our family and we've struggled and crafting took a back seat I'm afraid.

Anyway, about a week ago I felt the urge to create so decided I would make something for my little girl and picked up my copics for a little play.  I ended up making her a box frame with a Wee image and loved how it turned out.

Items Used

Image:  Whimsy Stamps 'Sweet Blossom' by Wee Stamps
Medium:  copics
Papers:  Pink Petticoat 'Vintage Rose Collection', card for matting from Papermill Direct
Dies:  Whimsy Stamps 'Banner Pennant' die set
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts and some from stash

I used an 8 x 8 frame which I'd picked up a while ago.  I used the gorgeous Wee Stamps image 'Sweet Blossom' which is one of my favourites and coloured her up with my copics in colours to compliment the pretty Pink Petticoat papers from my stash.  I added a little ribbon, lace and couple of flowers and decided to add her name across the top as we struggle to find things with her name spelt that way.

A nice close up of the adorable image.  She's so cute and really lovely to colour.  

Copics List

Face/Body:  E000, E00, E11, W3
Hair:  E31, E35, E37, E29, W5
Clothes:  RV000, R81, R83, R85, W5/YG11, YG13, Forest Green Promarker

I would like to enter my frame into the following challenges:-

Creative Inspirations  -  Pretty projects

Cute Card Thursday  -  Lace or ribbon

Allsorts Challenge  -  Spring is in the air

Okay that's my little bit of craftiness I've shared with you all for now.  I know I haven't been around for a while so if anyone has taken the time to pop in on me I would just like to say a little thank you for stopping by it is very much appreciated.

Take care folks.
