We had overseas visitors arrive later that night. It was my daughter's in-laws. A lovely couple who stayed with us till Saturday afternoon. Very early Saturday morning we picked up our daughter, her hubby and baby Archer for a 5 day visit. So you can see it's been full on.
This morning, baby was sleeping,Mummy and Daddy having a sleep in and hubby out for a walk, so snuck into craft room to join in Kim's Scramble over on the HA Flickr group. She set a real challenge - a card with matching tag and decorated envelope. All in 90 mins.
I had DC182 sitting on my desk and a bright blue card base. I took some Bristol paper and stamped the butterflies. I used Zig Markers in bright blue and green to colour the butterflies. I used the matching die to cut three of the butterflies. The die doesn't cut all the way through, so you can lift the wings. Added a sentiment from the set as well. The tag was cut from some Bristol with a CAS-ual Friday die. I used the smaller of the two butterflies and did a similar design, which I replicated on the blue envelope. Entering this into the All Kinds of Everything at Moving With the Times Challenge
And here is my little man who came to see me just as I was finishing..
And yes at 10.30am Nana is still in her PJ's! We'd had a nice sleep in and breakfast and I hadn't got dressed before scrambling!
We had a lovely lunch with our son coming over with some of his friends to meet the little dude. The weather held off and we got to eat outside. Hubby barbecued sausages and chicken wings.
Later this afternoon, I was catching up on some blogs and I saw that Virginia's new challenge was underway over on Virginia's View. It's "Spray, Mist and Splatter". I was very inspired by Virginia's samples... so CASE'd it.
I started by using some Lindy's Gang Spray in Green and pink onto some creamy card before stamping the flower from Altenew Beautiful Day and the leaves from the set. I used some purple and green inks to stamp. I like the design Virginia used so did something similar with some washi tape. The background has drops of the pink spray and mist of white Decor spray(which is very and splatters made with watered down Hickory Smoke distress ink. The sentiment is from the Beautiful day set as well.
And here's another pic of Archer
Full of smiles this morning. He has a second tooth cutting through but you wouldn't know it. He is such a good boy
Looking forward to another day off with them tomorrow then back to work for a couple of days and then spending Thursday with them before they fly out to LA on Thursday night for their holiday.
