Evening all.  Hope all the mummies out there have had a nice relaxing day.  We spent last night on Boo's new boat Amanzi (Zulu for Water) and first time the kids have slept over on a boat.  T'was very comfy indeed, you could not tell we were on a boat at all, we call it the Boatervan!
Can't wait for some summer adventures now :)

I have one to share tonight then off to do more scribbling and CV writing.  This one is Hearts on Bench by Robin Pushay which I've actually done in pencils!  Not like me I know but thought I'd have a go!  I did feel that doing her dress in orange made her look a bit naked from a distance so I added some spots with the molotow pen and job done ;)

I had a rummage through my peel offs (another shock horror from me!) and found this one I must have had for about 10 years lol!  See never throw anything away you never know when it will come in useful!

Hope you like and please do pop by Crafts and Me as there are some fantastic new artists there including Robin Pushay, Hannah Lynn, Jeremiah Ketner, The East Wind and Sara Burrier or the Crafts and Me Facebook group as there's a freebie to be had there at the mo!

This is our Molly and I on Amanzi with our new friend Timmy the Swan.  Molly must have called him a goose 20 times!  He introduced himself yesterday when I was loading the boat and trying to step off the dock to the boat by hissing at me!  He's chilled out a bit now :)

Crafts & Me Challenge - Flowers

Evening all!  Gosh where did that month go?  Its flown by!  I've had all change this past month, I just started a new job which is much much closer to home which is really nice.  My views now are sheep and hills.  I loved working in Liverpool but the travelling every day and roadworks got a bit too much and its NOISY!  I had a whole office to myself a couple of times this week and I'm resisting the urge not to break out singing Oh so quiet!

Anyway I'm back with a new creation for Crafts & Me challenge, this month is to "Add Flowers"  I've coloured the new Sharlotta by Hannah Lynn.  I went for this one as a kind of homage to Liverpool as she reminds me of the girls I see in town on Fridays with their rollers in!
The tail has some very fine detail on, I used a blender pen to get the scales then a clear glitter.  I also added clear glitter bubbles to the background.  The necklace and headband white dots are done with molotow acrylic pen, these are fab and dont clog up like the sakura equivalents.

Please do pop by the Crafts & Me blog to join in the challenge this month and see the fab creations from the rest of the team.  There is an awesome prize of 5 yes 5 stamps by Aurora Wings which are a brand new release this month!  Here's just 3 of them up for grabs!
