Time Flies...

When you're having fun! It's been a whole week since I've done any blogging or crafting! I've had a surprise visit from my family, which was lovely, so I've had no spare "me" time this past week. My guests have left now (sob sob - I can't believe how the time has flown, I miss my family lots, living in a different country makes any time we spend together precious) so I've made a little card this afternoon to keep my mind off things. This one is using some of my new stamps from Kraftin Kimmie... I'm loving these quirky little characters...

This little lady is called "Genevieve" from Kraftin Kimmie, isn't she gorgeous! The sentiment is also a stamp from the same range. I've created a little scene by adding a hand drawn plane in the background (quite proud of myself lol) as the challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie is to "Create a Scene" and also use two stamps. I've also followed the colours from the Colour Create challenge which are "Red, White/Off White, Chocolate & Pink". Here's more details...


  • Stamp "Genevieve" Moonlight Whispers Collection, Kraftin Kimmie Stamps
  • Sentiment Stamp from same range by Kraftin Kimmie
  • Colouring Promarkers
  • Paper "Sugared" Basic Grey
  • Ribbon Bazzil Basics
  • Heart Brad from stash

Well, I'm off to watch a bit of Dancing on Ice, be back tomorrow with my DT card for the new Cupcake Craft Challenge! Have a lovely, cosy evening!
