If you can't get crafty

If you can't get crafty, get tidy ... I'm still not up to crafting so I'm doing the next best thing (in my world) and tidying the craft room, clearing some of the stash that I'm not using.  So watch out on eBay for lots of cheap, hardly used (if at all!) bargains

Long time no blogging ... I'm sure you thought I'd given up crafting. In truth I haven't been in the craft room for sometime due to health issues which I won't go into.  But I have been sat on the sofa with my crochet hook, I'll post some photos of the finished product soon but here's a sneek preview.

I have managed to venture into the craft room today and create a card, it's taken me all day but I'm glad to be able to do something with glue, card and paper!

With this card I'm entering a few challenges: 

First of all Clearly Besotted's 'Seeing Spots' and as you can see there are more than a few spots to qualify, and I've used Stephanie's beautiful stamp set Butterfly Wishes.

For colour I've taken inspiration from both Color Throwdown and A Passion for Papertrey (if the team wi'll let me get away with the Kraft I've used).

For the design I popped over to Mojo Monday for some well needed layout inspiration, although as you can see I've juggled the layout just a tiny bit.


Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Butterfly Wishes.  Papertrey Ink - Botanical Silhouettes, Polka Dot Basics II
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Whisper White
DSP: SU - Designer Series paper stack
Ink: SU - Tempting Turquoise, Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo. Memento - Tuxedo Black. Versamark
Embellishments: SU Basic Rhinestones

With luck I'll get back into the craftroom sometime soon.
