Craft and Spa day

Now that Shanan's back to work, Leroy and I have been doing a variety of activities during the day (today was cleaning out the pantry though - boring!) Yesterday was nice and relaxing. Leroy slept in so I got started on my card for WSC using some new papers and nesties I picked up on Tuesday night.

I'm trying to get a hardstart on the cards I need for this year before making "just because" cards - so this is for a special someone's birthday soonish.  I inked up this set for the first time and went to town with the bright colours in this Hippy Chic paper from DCWV.

I picked up some glitter on sale with a christmas  gift voucher and used some on the crown, there's also glitter on some of the papers. The dress is paper pieced. The rest of the image is coloured with SU Markers.

Inside I've used some paper scraps and stamped part of the PI image in a light gray.  

Once Leroy was up and we'd had some lunch we decided to relax with a face mask while we played video games - not your typical spa experience but fun for us!

Shan bought me a new tub of my fave seaweed mask for Christmas so I wanted to open that....but I also just wanted to get this very goofy photo of Leroy and I for his holiday album....

Yup, totally goofy! Of course, he then spent the afternoon proclaiming how amazing his skin felt!

Have a wonderful weekend, we're off to the Zoo tomorrow and our beloved Steelers play on Sunday so we've got a fun one planned. My OCC post is scheduled for tomorrow night - enjoy!

  3. Hi Sarah, wow your cards are truly equisite. Have just been right back through your blog and just love your work and your colors you put together.
