Inspirational Card Sketches #30

We're back from Dorset and the sun shone for us, the children loved the beach Maoleidigh loves digging sand spent her time filling her bucket up, eventually attempting the cold sea water, as for Dillon he couldn't get enough of the sea and we had to drag him back to the caravan... which he thinks we should live in all the time bless him! I have so missed my crafting and all my blogging buddies so got straight back into it with my DT card for Inspirational Card Sketches...




Olena designed our fabulous sketch this week, and our sponsors are Paper Popsicles so pop over and have a browse at their wonderful site.

I have printed and coloured little girl all summery with white dress and super cute frilly socks. I have edged the dress with my spica pen but it's a little hard to see the glittrer in the photos. Couldn't resist a little button too!
I have seen crochet flowers cover the crafting catwalk for a while now and decided to actually try making one, now it's not the most fabulous and I certainly need some practice, but this is my very first attempt at crochet and I found the most wonderful blogs which will help even the most complete beginner thanks Teresa and Rachel. So I got myself a crochet hook but I only a large one and my crochet is leaning more to the lacy side, to finish I simply put a small button in the middle. click on pictures to enlarge.

Supplies: Patterned Paper: MME: Bloom and Grow; Stamps: paper popsicles: Little girl; Ink: markers: copic; spica; Die's: Nestabilities: label1; Sizzix: bread tags; Cutb'g: butterfly; Other: lace, Buttons, thread, crochet hook, cereal box card; double sided adhesive sheet; 3D foam;


Thanks for stopping by and here's a few little pics of when we we're away, I didn't take my camera to the seaside so don't have any of them playing there. They are of course impossible to photograph and don't sit still for a second... but cute all the same,
