Told you I'd be back!

Hi everyone

I hope you are having a great long weekend. I escaped the madness of our temporary new home to spend 5 hours fighting my way up to Lancashire for a weekend with the parents and of course a bit of crafting. My mum has been lucky and managed to persuade my father to do a loft conversion (Well he and a friend) and make a hobby room, which has just been finished and you have to agree it looks fab.
There is another desk for my father and loads of space for books etc. Today the sun just poured in above (unlike you unlucky souls in the south!) and I finally managed to put ink to rubber!

I was pretty much spoilt for choice today so managed a few challenges along the way:

Truly Scrumptious - Sketch with added requirement to make a hidden message
Totally Gorjuss - In stitches
Stamptacular Sunday -'Sew' Special
A Spoon Full of Sugar - 3D something
I used my newly arrived spring collection from Magnolia and some very pretty papers from craftwork cards that managed to fall into my basket at a show.

To complete the recipe from TS I added a secret message to the tab and hid it under the image. All the images have been coloured with a mix of watercolour pencils and distressed inks and then raised on silicon. I just love this little frog and the cute message which all came in the pack.  

Here is a close up which also shows the faux stitching around the tag.

So I hope to get some more cards make over the next couple of days, but am not sure when they will be posted as I we don't have broadband at the flat so am currently using anyone who will let me!

Have a fab weekend everyone and hope to do a little blog hopping soon and leave some messages..... promise!.

Thanks for looking
