crafty adventures of a makeup loving Japanophile!

Hi friends!

I'm so sorry it's been so long since I posted, life has been beyond hectic and sadly my poor little blog had to be the one to suffer.

I had to start working part time, and while it's been lovely to get back to work and have so much interaction with other people, it's been so hard to leave my girls and not be the sole carer. A big change for me, and it's left me totally exhausted--plus I'm trying to spend every minute I am home, with the girls and hubs.

Anyhow, I finally had a chance to do some crafting and so here I am.

It's challenge time at A Blog Named Hero, so I'm here to share my card.

We're working with a sketch that was designed by the beautiful Chari Moss--thank you sweet friend!
 Here's my take on it

I stamped all my images and coloured them with Prismacolor Pencils, then added that layer to a cardbase of Gold Coins, which I'd stamped on using the new Hero Arts Cling Stamp Forest Floor--this is such a cool pattern!

I love how vibrant the pencils are against the coloured cardstock!
I hope you'll join us this challenge, as you can win a Gift Voucher thanks to our super generous sponsors Simon Says Stamp, who are also our collaborating partners this month!

 OK See you again soon!
