Gift for Teacher

My eldest leaves Primary school on Friday so here is the card and a paperweight I made for him to give his teacher. I made the card a wee while ago and just added the sentiment . The paperweight is a new creation. Both use the Simply Sassy image High School Student from Sugar Nellie - isn't she gorgeous?
I coloured her with Promarkers and loved every minute seen as how it's been a few weeks since I had any crafty time. Hope she likes them.
I am entering the paperwight into the following challenges
Going Grey with Scrap Creations - anything but a card
Top Tip Tuesday  - the letter "T" (thank you)
Bows and Berries - thank you/ appreciation
Make it Monday - anything goes

thanks for visiting, it's good to be back in the land of craft!!!!!!!!!!

Back to good old Scottish weather

Well I have had a glorious all-inclusive fortnight in Lanzarote!!!  I've put the view from our apartment below. Ate loads and read 4 books while sitting on the sunlounger...BLISS! It was 41 degrees at 4pm poolside one of the days.
Back to normal today though when I returned to work and it was raining. I will catch up with what you have all been up to as soon as possible but there is a mountain of washing/ironing to be tackled first. I'll be back commenting on your blogs soon.
Can't wait to catch up

How Excited am I??????????

I was absolutely thrilled when Elaine asked if I would be in the Sunday Spotlight over at Sugar Nellie. Here is the card I made for her to show
I have used the wonderful Pillow Talk from one of my fave ranges, Simply Sassy. You can find her and lots more HERE. The image is coloured with Promarkers and I tried out a new hair colour combo, hope you like it. Papers are My Minds Eye, La Paperie. Sentiment is HOTP. All papers have been distressed and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
If you haven't seen Sugar Nellie stamps, you are missing out! I am lucky enough to live close enough to the House of Sugar to be able to visit when time allows. Don't know if my credit card would agree though.
I would like to thank Elaine massively for asking me to take part in the Spotlight, I am honoured
thanks for visiting
