Clean and Simple 2 - Day 1

Whew am I behind with me homework!!
This is a super quick post to show you my make for day 1 of the Clean and Simple Cardmaking 2 online class. I am loving this class btw!! I have never taken an online class before and I am really enjoying it!
So the topic was Craftmanship and our homework was to follow one of the given sketches.
I followed Kristina's sketch and must say I am quite pleased with the result!
Kristina used a stencil and a mist spray to create the background for her card so I gave it a go and used a stencil for the first time! Its very shimmery so I had trouble taking photographs but hopefully you can see a slight shimmer.
Close up of the sentiment and tiny silver heart gem.
The shimmer can be seen better here.
 No idea why it turned out all white! I certainly didn't intend it to be like this!
So there you have it! I have an 'attempt' for Day 2 but that will have to wait till later as I must go get ready for school!!
Hope you are all well.
Happy Crafting!!

Anya Celebrates

I'm back so soon! Whats going on!! Lol.
I'm slowly working my way through the goodies I got at Christmas ( you can see the video HERE) and as there has been sun today, yes I did say sun not a swear word!, I decided to practise my colouring.
Very pleased with the hair which is what I need to work on the most.
I love TGF as I always have so much fun colouring them in and this 'Big Anya' was no exception!
She's just so pwetty! I'm pleased that the glitter actually shows up on the photos lol!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Inky Chicks - Becky's Bingo - Ribbon, Image, Pearls.
The Squirrel and The Fox - Something New - New stamp and new papers.
Well I suppose I should go get ready for a new week at Nursery lol.
Hope you've all had a good weekend :)

Wee Cutie!

First of I want to wish you all a very late
Happy New Year!!
Starting a new job (Nursery eeek!) and loosing the internet has meant blogging has had to take a backseat.
However, I'm starting to get into a routine now with work and after spending a ridiculous amount of time on the phone and faffing on we have the internet back wooopa!
Anyways enough waffle, I made this card for the bfs Mams birthday.
I coloured this image over Christmas and discovered my new favourite combo of blue Flex/Promarkers!
I cant wait to try them out on a few more stamps lol! The combo I used was FM Celestial Blue, Duck Egg, Artic Blue and FM Glacier Blue.
This is very similar to the last card I made using this image but I don't care cos I LOVE IT and I haven't said that in ages about one of my cards!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - Favourite Colour Combo (cant fail with blue and white!)
Well I'm taking part in the Clean and Simple 2 online class which starts next week so I'm sure Ill be back with some sort of effort :/ lol my CAS cards really need working on!
Hope you're all well!
