Butterfly's & Christmas
Last night I found a little time to play along with two of my favourite challenge blogs, Hero Arts & Try Stamping on Tuesdays. Both challenges have sketches (my favourite kind of challenge) at the moment. I was inspired by a pair of jeans that Lils' owns for the butterfly card. She has two butterflies embroidered on them in pink & yellow thread. The Christmas card was made because I had this cute Bugaboo Digi image already printed up. Which made for two quick & easy cards. I used Copics to colour both images. I don't know about you, but I find it therapeutic to colour in. Especially since I've gotten a bit smarter & check to see what papers I have that I can co-ordinate with the images. The pattern paper is "Holly Jolly Christmas" by Echo Park. The pale pink paper has a hounds tooth pattern on it (not a stamp). My wonderful friend Alice sent me this paper pad & I love it.
Well I had better do some mummy stuff now (just got home from Mothers' group & fed the kidlet) like putting Lils to bed for her afternoon nap, clean up the toys in the lounge & get Emsy from school.
Have a wonderful day xoxoxo
