AWOL no Longer!



Ive been struggling a bit lately and the last week or so seems to have flown past without making an impression on my conciousness. I seem to have been so busy but cant for the life of me say at what and have very little to show for it, BUT, I have been doing a bit of crafting.

Last week I cheered myself up using the new summer colours from TH and combined with the theme for this weeks samples at The Craft Barn I made this smily project




The colours are just wonderful and I was pleased when I was able to match them with shaded pro markers on the Gorguss Girls coat! Doesnt it just cheer your soul?

Here's the yummy stash I used to make this card and cover a notepad which you can see on The Craft Barn blog



Have a great week everyone
x Michelle

Beautiful card - superb combination of the inked background and the embossing, not to mention the gorjuss colouring of the coat :) Time has a way of slipping by for all of us, I think. Elizabeth x

Saw this over at the Craft Barn, and as I said there - I don't think it could help but cheer you up... great colours, and adorable image. I love the tall, elegant shape of it too.
Hope life feel more productive soon, but if this comes out of the struggles then...

Fab colours, Michelle! I too am in love with the new DIs. Can't believe how fast time is passing at the moment. Hoping it slows down once we break up from school!
