One for the boys and some more craft room peeks!

Hello crafty friends! How are you all doing? My rash is fading fast and I've had a blessed stress-free week this week which makes a lovely change. I've made 3 cards and have managed to start colouring some Christmas images even!! Without further ado, here's my first card of the day...

It's Riley coloured with copics and then some lyra pencil shading on the background. This card is for my brother's birthday. He's a gardener so I bought this stamp with him in mind. These beautiful papers are by Basic Grey. The sentiment stamp was a freebie with Craft Stamper magazine- I use it so much!

I'd like to enter this into:
Allsorts Challenge- inspired by nature
Crafty Creations- at the bottom of my garden
Sweet Stop Sketches- sketch and theme of spring

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Riley, freebie); Copics; Lyra pencils; Papers (Basic Grey); Nesties; Black fine liner; Button (Walmart); String

Next up is a card for our friend's little boy. I coloured this Elzybells image with copics. I can't remember where the background paper is from. I dragged out my Cuttlebug embossing folders which I hardly ever use. The sentiment is Pink Petticoat punched out with my new Stampin Up word window punch.

I'd like to enter this into:
Spoon Full of Sugar- birthday wishes

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Elzybells); Copics; Paper (?); Assorted cardstock; Cuttlebug embossing folders; Sentiment (Pink Petticoat); Punches (Woodware, Stampin Up); Star die (Die-namics)

Last card is for another friend's little boy. I've again used Riley and coloured him with copics. The background I sponged with blue ink to give the effect of sky and clouds. I used individual transfer letters to spell "alex". The papers are Making Memories.

I'd like to enter this into:
Stamp Something- funky and bright

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Riley; Elzybells); Copics; Ink; Papers (Making Memories); Punch (Woodware); Transfers; Star die (Die-namics); Tab die (Die-namics); Buttons

I have another couple of sneak peeks of my updated craft room to show you. Oooh- pretty colours!!!

Mmmm, can you see what it is?!!!

Hi Steph

Gorgeous cards .. .. and your craft space is looking brilliant. All clean and fresh .. .. mmmm... must try not to think about it when I go to my craft pod in a bit as I could get depressed LOL!!

Pleased you have a stress free week coming up. You are certainly due one! Good news that you are feeling a bit better and I hope your Mum is too.

Enjoy your week.
