Got the wreath......

Good afternoon gorgeous peeps!

It's been a wonderful but busy day here in my little house this morning! The sun was happily shining so I took the opportunity to get the laundry on as soon as we got up. Mo actually had a lovely lie in and didn't wake up until 6:30am and woke up raring to go so we got mo-melearning done nice and early.

Then I had a really good clean out in my craft room and cleared 6 draws out into just 2! go me! it feels so much better too. Scott helped me move the printers and my photo-taking box around and it looks so much less cluttered now which is great as Scott is working from home out there so I am keen to keep it clean and airy for him, no one wants to work in a wifey cluttered environment right?!!! he he!

Now, I have been practising with my copics this week. I only have a few colours and have ordered a few more because I am absolutely disappointed with the quality of the newer promarkers. They run out so much quicker and the quality of the ink when I'm colouring just does not feel the same so for me, a change to copics is the way I want to go. They really do feel a lot different to promarkers so it's going to be a learning curve but that is the absolute fun of it. Learning those and my pencils has been such a wonderful thing to take a hold of.

For my card this morning I used the super sweet little  Got the wreath from Mo's Digital Pencil. It is such a cauuuute image!!!! I went for a blue and red combo because...well..because I only have reds,blues,greens, a few skin colours and a couple of warm greys in copics!! I have to say though, I do love how it came out!

Then it was just a case of having some fun with die cuts to sit that little cutie on! I went with one of my favourite MFT Blueprints die sets and a couple of other golden oldies like my Memorybox wreath and my Lawn Fawn snowflakes.

I made the decision last week to step down from all my DT's. I am absolutely 100% still in love with all of them but I just felt it was time to step down and have just some crafty time just for me. I will miss all of them greatly, it felt very strange to step down and 'let go' after soooo long but I am so excited about just being a regular little customer and getting excited to use new images I buy! It feels like a new little crafty world for me again! 

Right, time for a cuppa I think! Huge hugs and love for you all, Lou xxxxx
