Good morning or....


Hello bloggers,

Well I've been up since 5.30, so to me 7.30 feels a bit like we're half way through the day now!

And the reason for this ridiculous wake up time?  Emily was feeling rough yesterday, no idea what was wrong, and slept for most of the afternoon so she used up her quota of sleep and therefore woke up at 5.30 this morning!

I finally rolled out of bed at 6.30 and we came downstairs, when she decided that she would like to make her card for Father Christmas, so here we are in the dining room with her crafting and refusing to eat her breakfast and me blogging!

Photographic evidence:

But along with that this post is to show my card for a couple of challenges.

My card:
Font shot:

Detail of image:

The sentiment reads 'To a special friend', but I don't think you can see it properly, well you can't on my computer anyway!

I used:

A Pollycraft digi image (from my 100 image for £9.99 bundle, great value and love the images!): Twiddly Wings - Friends.  Coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers. 
Chalked while still in the Nestie die for the sky.
Papers are all Prima - Sparkling Spring paper pad.
CC Designs cutter - Teardrop
Card blank and sentiment - Craftwork Cards
So I hope that everyone else has a bit more of a lie-in than I did this morning and I'm away now to try and encourage her to eat her breakfast!

See you soon,

A challenge, or two:

Pollycraft Monday challenge - Challenge 119# friends/friendship

Cupcake Craft challenges - 168 - Two's company

Sketch N Stash - Challenge 74 (new stash is the digi image - old stash the papers)

Lovely card Sarah :o) Super sweet image and those papers are so pretty.

I didn't buy the £9.99 Pollycraft bundle, managed to talk myself out that one... I did buy the bundle of 62 images that they released this weekend though lol - I already had some of the images but they were still a bargain! Lisa x

What a fabulous card Sarah the image is so sweet! My kiddies did their lists to santa this wkend too, I won't name half of it but lets just say that I don't think santa will be stemming to any Ipad2s or puppies this year! I also have a poorly man so maybe I will be up for the rough night and lack of sleep tonight! Hugs Rebekah xx

Ella's Design said...

Lovely spring colours on this creation, Sarah! Nice to see when the skies are so grey! Pretty details and colouring too! I think all parents have had one of those days when the kids think it's fun to get up at the crack of dawn, but what a beautiful picture of Emily following in Mummy's footsteps! Thanks for becoming a follower of my little blog! Hugs, Lisa x

What a gorgeous little girl your Emily is!! I admire her dedication to crafting lol! You know in about 10 years or so you'll be wishing she'd get up early!!

Love the card, such pretty colours & I thought about that bundle but wasn't sure. After my Fi induced spending spree recently I think I'd better not.... xx

Sarah-Jane said...

Hi Sarah,
Lovely card. I love the cute image and pretty papers. Great colouring.

My 6 year old gets up so early on the weekends, even before my one year old! I never get to sleep in any more. xx

Arabella said...
