Crafting Weekend!

When my Mum called me at work on Friday and told me that I couldn't go to her house over the weekend because my little brother Owen had chicken pocks I was gutted. I am very close to my Mum and go every weekend. I have never had them and it is supposed to be dangerous to people who have asthma so I have had to stay away. (I am back today though!! lol)

Martin has been busy in our garden all weekend so I have been sat crafting. My Mum's Friend at work is getting married at the beginning of September so I have started to make some cards for orders. Her colour is purple so I thought the Bo Bunny Peacock papers were great to use.

It's really hard to make different cards for weddings because I only have a couple of wedding stamps so my favourite crafty Auntie lent me some of her stash to make different cards. I have been busy and made 4 cards in total, but here is my first. I love this one.

I made my own swirl with a viva pearl pen and added some flowers which I purchased some time ago at the Craft Den. I also added a couple of pins and a congratulations sentiment. I used the WOJ sitting willow on the matching swing - love it! I coloured her with my copics and added stickles.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  7. What a beautiful card! Also, in the States you can get a shot from the the Dr. if you have never had Chicken Pocks. It will prevent you from getting them if you have never had them. You might want to check this out, the older you are when you have them the harder they are on you. Hope you avoid getting them!

  8. Really Pretty. Hope your brother is on the mend!

  9. Oh how beautiful!
    Sorry you couldn't visit with your mum.
