Sweet 'Maya'

Good evening my lovelies and a very happy Sunday to you all.  I'm here writing up my blog post on my new laptop which I had to get myself.  My old one was getting a tad long in the tooth and when it started making peculiar noises and little puffs of smoke would shoot out from the side (I kid you not lol!!) I decided it was time I sucked it up and got a new one.  I love my new baby I'd be lost without it but it's taking me a little while to find my way around Windows 10 and photos are taking longer to edit but I daresay I'll get there in the end.

We've had a quiet weekend here really so I've managed to do some chores and still squeezed some crafting time in.  I've got a poorly munchkin though as my daughter has come down with this cold/flu that's going around and I've spent a night making hot water bottles one minute and stripping covers off the next at one point I think the poor little mite was shivering so much her bed was rattling!

So my crafting has got off to a slow start this year but hey I've actually got a finished card to share with you today.  I pulled out one of my favourite Wee stamps images to play with the sweet little 'Maya' and I've coloured her up with my new Inktense pencils.  I must say I'm loving these pencils I've found them so easy to use and such beautiful colours.  

Image:  'Maya' Wee Stamps
Medium:  Derwent Inktense pencils
Papers:  Couture Creations 'Hearts Ease'
Dies:  Crafters Companion Die'sire Edgeables 'Doily Lattice', Spellbinders 'Floral Ovals',
Cheery Lynn 'Fanciful Flourish, Dienamics 'Royal Leaves'
Flowers/Ribbon/Lace:  a mix from stash and Wild Orchid Crafts

I've added some 'diamond' Stickles to the flowers for a little accent and popped a few pearls here and there just to pick up some of the detail.  A little close up of the image.  

Challenges I would like to enter my card into:-

Creative Inspirations  -  something new (Inktense                     pencils)

Okay, so it's taken me ages to write up this post I've had so many interruptions and it is no longer Sunday evening but rather Monday morning.  So I hope you enjoy your Monday and have a great start to your week.

Take care folks.
