Hi all! For some reason Blogger won't let me comment if the comment box is embedded into your posts so please dont think I am being rude - I honestly cant comment on your wonderful creations which is soo frustrating! I can only comment if the comment box opens a new window. Hopefully all will be fixed soon! Rach :) x

Its been far too long!

Hello blogland how I have missed you!!

I have been so ridiculously busy with Malawi preparations and some overtime at work (finally!!) that I simply haven't had time to stop by and say hello. So apologies.

And to hopefully make up for my absence I have a photo of a card I made for a friends birthday.

 She really likes purple so I thought this purply/pinky Buzzcraft Butterfly would be perfect. Decoupaged up with some trusty silicone glue and sparkle addedd with the good old Diamond Stickles. She thought it was gorgeous which made me pleased as it was two weeks late (naughty me!).

 Hope you all have a good day and Ill hopefully be back for a visit before I leave eeek!!

Ladybug Nora

Just a quick post as I'm packing to go to Bristol this weekend. Its our last training before Malawi which is only a  month away aaaah!!
I finally found a use for the Ladybug Nora I coloured up a few weeks ago. I designed the backing and the sentiment using the Lovebug Kay Miller digi kit then printed it off and stuck it to a card blank.
I edged my already coloured Nora with my red inkpad and stuck her on. I used two of my new Wild Orchid Craft roses that I sparkled up with a bit of Diamond Stickles. I even coloured the biggest rose with my PMs and am quite impressed with how well its turned out! You might be able to see the little ladybird peeking out from in between the flowers! You can never have enough ladybirds!!

Ill be entering this card into Anyone For Anya's Anything Goes Challenge and Alys Sunday Challenge which is Red or White or Blue.
I also wanted to point out that Wild Orchid Crafts are starting up a Challenge blog and are giving away this AMAZING blog candy to one lucky follower who helps spread the word!
Check out the challenge blog here!

Anyways I must go finish packing! Hope everyone is well!

Flowers flowers everywhere!

 I think I have been so inspired by all of the wonderful blooms in my yarden (lol) I decided to colour up the CC Designs Heidi among the Flowers Digi stamp I bought last month from All That Scraps. I followed the sketch over at Anyone for Anya  and used my Kay Miller Designs Digi paper kit to create the background. Im not really sure which kit I used! I bought 7 and use papers from each so its hard to keep track!
I didnt have a sentiment that I wanted to use so I used one of my new Wild Orchid Crafts 20mm purple roses instead with added Stickles for sparkle!
Over at Alys Sunday Challenge the theme is flowers so I am going to enter my card there as there are flowers on my paper aswell as the image and the rose ofcourse!

Hope you all are having a good weekend!
