my crafty week

it has been quite a busy week for me this week. but i did get some crafting done on my day off.
 my daughter moved again last week and i finally got around to making her a card, although instead of a card i made her a hanging tag for her sunny lounge window.
the base is a chip board tag. i wiped it with various inks pads in her favourite  purple colours.
i stamped some flowers and hearts on top with stazon. as it was a new home card i also used a little house stamp free from craft stamper a few months ago.
finally i added a layered punched flower and some text; home is where the heart is.
hanging from the bottom are some shrink plastic tiles with new home spelt out and my favourite fairy stamp from butterfly kisses.

an old workmate had a baby this week: a little boy this is the card i made her.

on thursday i came home from work to find i had a parcel in the post, 3 set of beatrix potter rubber stamps and cds from crafters companion. i had won them in a giveaway competition from papercrafts essentials. they are lovely, i am so lucky.
anyway peter rabbit is perfect for a new baby card. it was quite simple, i just coloured the stamp in with aqua promarkers and layered it on top of some ribbons. i added a tag and wrote on it with sakura glitter pen.

it was a very quick card but i am quite pleased with it
