SMO took care of him on Saturday so that I was able to fulfill my commitment to take my jewellery to the Art Group Christmas Fair, where trade was slow but steady. He looked after him again on Sunday so that the older children could go handbell ringing outside Waitrose. The result of all of this was, come Monday morning when I was caring for the poorly little one, he cried and cried for his Daddy!
He was feeling a little better by yesterday afternoon so I made a start on the cards with a plan to make some simple one layer creations with ink and sprays. I've managed to complete one whole card.
I sprayed pink Chalkboard Glimmer Mist over a Kaisercraft wooden tree and added a stamped sentiment from a free set that came with a magazine.
The tree was a little bit faint so I went around the outline with black pen and then added lots of bright jewels, which just happen to be the colour scheme I think I will go for at home this year (we have got as far as digging the tree out from the back of cupboard under the stairs - a mammoth task, you have to move Harry Potter's bed and everything out of the way to get there!)
Daring Card Makers - Colour challenge
Moving Along With The Times - Clean and simple
Once little one was in bed I managed to get a few images coloured in and ready to make up, so there are some more cards on the way, at least I know that I only have to hand deliver them!
