LOVIN' HALF TERM CRAFT TIME

THREE days in a row for me!!! Wow it's a while since I've managed that...just shows what a few days off work does.

I've had some commissions to do this week so that's kept me busy but I also have a card to share using the newly released Dandelion Dreams set from Clearly Besotted and it's heading right over there for the monthly challenge which is a stunning colour palate this time.


I love this set and wanted to try something CAS and colourful with them so I've masked off 2 areas and stamped the image then used a sentiment from the same set, a strip of patterned paper from Echo Park and a couple of enamel dots. I daren't add any more in case I go OTT!


I did make another card using a cherry cake with gingham but wasn't happy with it so that's gone in the 'not for public viewing' pile!

Next up is a commission card that my Mum asked me to make for one of her dog-loving neighbours. This cute little dog has been in my stash for far too long and I think he/she's just gorgeous. I've used the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge so I'm heading over there along with Pixies Snippet Challenge - I keep missing that one.


The backing paper is from the Bazoo range from Helz Cuppleditch and I've used my Cricut for a change to cut the scalloped circle and balloons. I keep thinking about selling it as it's hardly used but just now and again it's a handy piece of kit! The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted 'It's Your Birthday' set and I've added some pearls and twine from my stash.



Hope you are all having some fun and crafty time. Enjoy your evenings.

Sarah
