Sneek Peek

The time has arrived for those of us who have joined a new Circle Journal on Bubbly Funk, to send our CJ's on their 'round'. I just need to pop mine into a padded envelope and then post onto Elaine tomorrow. I thought I'd pop a little sneek peek of my front cover and then put some photos on of the rest of it, once the journals have started their journey.
I've called mine "Tranquil Moments" and here's a little peek.......

I've also been quite craftified this weekend, although not spending hours in my little room, but just a couple of hours yesterday and about the same today. Wish I could spend all the weekend doing all the little crafty jobs that need doing, but unfortunately the general house and family duties call.

Yesterday I made a Valentine's Card, (dare I say it, but I bought hubby's LOL). Just have not had the time during the week to make one. The one I made yesterday I will send it to my Mum, 'just because' and why not? For one thing, I know she will be thrilled with it, plus it will cheer her up as she is not good in health.

Materials used:

Nestabilities Labels 1 (2 sizes)
Cuttle Bug Vintage corner dies
Basic Grey - Bittersweet collection - Raspberry Cream
Basic Grey - Brown Bazzil
Brown Gingham
American Crafts ribbon (Pink block squares under the gingham)
Daisy Bucket Designs stamp - Love You
Versafine - Vintage Sepia
Colorbox Chalk - Warm Violet
Heart punch
Little heart button
Fiskars Treading water border punch

I've also done my Wk 6 of the 52Q's. Wk 6's prompt was "If I could do it all again, would I change anything?" This was for last sunday the 8th February.

Again, a lot of thinking done for this one, (too much for my little brain, LOL), but a good question all the same.

Materials used:

Watercolour card, sprayed with Juneberry Wine 02372 Glimmer Mist. It's quite shimmery, but it doesn't show too well on photo though. These sprays are really lovely and I only have one. Do you feel sorry for me.....? LOL!!

Elegant Poppy - F3045 Hero Arts - which was stamped with Versamark and embossed in white
Black and white gingham ribbon
Edge inked with Versacolor cube Boysenberry 26
Computer generated font - Kayleigh in Black
I have some more for tomorrow, so will pop back and upload them then. Need to photo them first. Thanks for popping by and having a look. XX
