Dusted off the cricut!!!

Morning Peeps!

Well the cold is still winning in and my energy has felt zapped away for the last 2 days!!! However, the sun is actually really shining this morning so I feel a whole tonne better just for seeing that.

Last night I actually opened my cricut up and made something with it. A friend of mine has a little girl called Asha and she is into Hello Kitty at the moment (...super yey for the hello kitty greetings cart!!!!) 

I am still loving my cloudy sky freebie paper from Funky Hand a couple of months ago, its so cute and was just perfect for a kitty in an aeroplanes background. Her eyes and nose are actually glossy accented but its hard to see in the piccy.

I cut Asha's name with my Tim Holtz chip block die and then stuck it onto the twine. I couldn't help but add 2 girly bows to the ends of the twine too, it looked really cute!! The sentiment is all glitzy and gorgeous from my crafters companion iridescent spray but that was hard to get a piccy of too!! I wobbled it out on some foam pads to make it look like it was floating through the air too!

I need to get my crafty thing on today and make a tonne of cards for the little charity sale we will be having at work to raise money for Adie's Just giving page. Adie, who is Asha's dad, has a just giving page and is raising money for MND. What makes it even more awesome is that Adie is battling with MND himself and doing such an awesome job with raising money for the charity that I am in complete awe of him. His blog is here if you want to pop along and say hi to him I know he loves visitors, and I love his style of writing because he is so honest and humorous. I got through a range of emotions reading his blog, from happiness to sadness and then right back to happy again! 

So thats me for this morning!! thank you for popping in on me!
