A lovely creating Saturday

First up - one of the challenges I printed out sometime during the week, I'm going to try and keep up with a few of these this year, they make me leave my comfort zone and also keep my blog moving and updated more regularly! Having said that, reality has hit a bit this week, back to work, back to planning workshops and events, back to my biking delivery job ... and back to not a lot of spare time!

First up, Mojo Monday, a first time for me with one of these sketches!

The Time Flies stamp set from the Summer Catalogue caught my eye straight away, I'm on my bike quite a bit and just had to have it! Of course, this is the first time I've actually inked it, although it has been sitting on my craft table pleading with me to use it for quite a while ;) In restrospect looking at the card as a photo, I probably should have used black around the bike image and the wheels - too late now, I had to hand cut the big circles, so they're probably not as exact as I'd like! Also used up some of the red/cream papers from the Dashing series, this was always the sheet I had left at the end of the pack (and believe me I used quite a few packs of this paper before Christmas!). Rest is pretty much self explanatory, I watercoloured the bike using my Stampin' Write markers and aqua pen.

Next up - a thank you to Keryn first, I hadn't really taken any notice of this template/idea on the demo website until I saw hers made up, this afternoon I gave it a go - wow! What a lovely easy way to package a wee gift - I used my Boho Backgrounds set, and based the colours on the Berry Bliss papers. Also realised I only have a few sheets of this left *gasp* I'm going to have to stock up before it probably retires at the end of March!

As usual, thanks for looking ... I'm hoping this updating carries on beyond the school holidays (two weeks to go, they're going by wayyyyy too fast!).

Hi lisa,
Just stopped by from the NZSU site. I think I need to try that template out now :o)

thanks for the Thank You. Berry Bliss and Boho Backgrounds work so well with the diaper pouch. I might have to have a go with that combination as well.
