So very grateful

Happy Monday!  Half term is over, Thomas is back at school. Martin is back to work and Daisy and I are back to some sort of normality :)  I’m feeling very grateful that she asked for a nap after her lunch as I have a HUGE to do list!  My plan for the next hour is to get some blog posts scheduled as I have lots to share, and catch up on a bit of housework – not very exciting but needs must.


Today I wanted to share some beautiful tags that I made to go on my last batch of customer orders, I like to make either a card or a tag as a little thank you.  I’ve used the lovely new set called So Very Grateful and used my inkpads and bender pens to colour the image in.  Here’s a close up showing the detail better, I love how easy it is to created the watercolour effect with the bender pens.  I’ve actually used three colours on the peachy coloured flowers. Crushed Curry for the centres, a wash of Pumpkin Pie on the petals then a touch of Melon Mambo over the top.  To create the depth on the leaves I have used an Old Olive marker pen on the veins and then used a bender pen to pull the colour out.


I’ve booked a venue for my first ALL DAY CRAFT EVENT, I can’t wait!  Lots of project planning, writing instructions, sorting kits etc to do but I am so looking forward to it.  I will share sneak peeks on my facebook page, why not pop over and see what else I have going on over there and if you could give me a ‘like’ too that’d be awesome!  In the meantime here are a few bullet points to answer any questions you have, spaces are limited but I’d love for you to come so get in touch ASAP.
