Back From My Hols

Hi folks I'm back from my hols and been busy painting.Not the arty type.The roller and emulsion type.I'm up to my eyes in it and still got a bit to do.Haven't been doing much crafty wise but have a few cards I can share.I spent a fair few ££££ on holiday on crafty stuff as I visited Funkykits shop in Elgin (Papercrafts Boutique) and the lovely Simply Create in Alford,where I met up with my fabby bloggy buddy Kath again.We had a great crafty gab with Jacqui the owner of Simply Create.It was a fantastic afternoon and was over way too soon.This is the card I made for Kath.I know she loves Penny Black images and MME Bloom and Grow papers so used both on the card.

Image - Penny Black Hanging On (Discontinued I think)coloured with Copics
Cardstock - Bazzill
Papers - MME Bloom And Grow
Sentiment - Papermania
Punches - EK Success Flower
Brads - Papermania Pearl and MME Bloom And Grow
Leaves - From My Local Florist Wholesaler (they were white and I coloured them with copics)

I also made a treat bag for Buddy but forgot to take a picture of it.

I also want to thank Sharon for a lovely blog award she left for me while I was on holiday.Thank you so much Sharon I really appreciate it.
I'm supposed to pass this on to some bloggy buddies,but most will have it so I'm going to nominate only one blog.It's for a lady who has just started off her blog and is a very special friend of mine.We met through the Docrafts forum.She's also just landed a DT position with Stampin Chic and no one deserves it more.So this award is going to Tina at Rainbird's Ramblings.Pop over and give her a big bloggy welcome and see her fabulous cards.

I'll hopefully get some blog hopping done tonight,well at least a start of it and catch up with all your lovely crafty creations.I've missed seeing them all.
