Moved in!

Hello all! Well, we're finally moved in! Yay! The chaos has subsided but there's still plenty to do as we're going to be redecorating the whole house, including knocking down a few walls BUT I thought I'd take a break from the mundane and post a few cards I've made for the Craft for Life project.

I'll be posting some before and after shots of my craft room soon! I went and got some tester pots yesterday and picked out a colour so hopefully will get a chance to start painting next week with any luck. Am really looking forward to my new room. Hubbie has bought me a new desk too!!

So anyway, onto my first card which is Billboardabella. I coloured her in with watercolours and cut out with nesties. The paper is all from a Spring Papermania pad.

Here is a little close up. Are you digging her green eyeshadow?!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stamping Bella); Watercolour pencils; Paper (Papermania); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Flower (Poppicrafts); Brad (Woodware)

Onto my second card made with 3 of the stamps from one of the Penny Black Transparent sets. I lined them all up on an acrylic block so they looked like they were all walking in a line, cute huh? All coloured with watercolour pencils and glittery highlights added. The sentiment is Lily of the Valley. Paper is an old paper scrap but I think it may be DCWV?

Another little close up. I love this little mousie, he's SO cute!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Penny Black); Watercolour pencils; Paper (DCWV?); Stickles; Sentiment (LOTV); Gems (freebie); Assorted cardstock

And finally last Craft for Life card is an Elzybells one. I've coloured her with copics and paper pieced her dress. Cut out with nesties and added a Stamping Bella sentiment. Paper is all Making Memories.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Elzybells; Stamping Bella); Copics; Assorted cardstock; Paper (Making Memories); Nesties; Stickles

Anyway, I must get on with more house stuff. I hope to be able to drop by your blogs when I've got a bit more time. Don't forget to keep popping by as I have some more Craft for Life cards and hopefully craft room photies to show you. Take care xxx
