Pajama Party…


Hope your week is going well.

There is a Pajama Party on at Waltzing Mouse Stamps

I took this sketch and flipped it so the circles are on the right side of the image

I am also linking to  the challenge at Muse

Muse Challenge #89

This is an attempt for me to use some of the patterned paper I have collected.

Thank you Therese for the inspiration.

Before I started I consulted Ms 9 on which image she liked best and colours to use.

She chose the elephant from WMS Half Pint Heroines which I stamped onto blending cs with memento tuxedo black and coloured with alcohol markers.  I chose some patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket Mini deck Baby Jane to create the card front and banners. I added SU Pool Party ribbon. The sentiment chosen by Ms 9 is from the same set again stamped with memento tuxedo black and popped up with foam tabs. I used a 1 1/4″ circle punch and layered into on Artisan label punch. The banners are a mix of free hand cut and the SU Banner punch. After playing with buttons and paper flowers I settled on hearts punched from the patterned paper with SU itty Bitty Accents heart punch and finished with some glossy accents.

 Today I’ve booked tickets to the girl’s dance concert in November then I joined a relatively new group of friends at the local library for 2 hours of crafty time. These ladies are so inspiring. I am in awe of one lady who is 95 hand stitches beautifully, doesn’t wear glasses and is more mobile than some half her age.  I wish she would share her secret 🙂  We come together in the middle of the library for 2 hours (or whatever we can spare) and do a crafty project with a cuppa and a chat. Some are making hand stitched quilts, one lady makes envelopes freehand, some crochet and some knit. Today I started a doll from Knitted Babes – Claire Garland. Here is a link to the ravelry page–their-wardrobes/patterns

Some have been creating for a long time others are new and come to learn.  Miss 9 had so much fun coming with me in the recent school holidays I have to take her crafty projects for show and tell so the group can see what she has been creating.

Until next time

Thanks for stopping by
