Crafting with a sick child

Today I’m trying to craft while looking after an unwell Miss K. Don’t know whether it is just a cold or the first signs of tonsillitis – she’s got a very busy week coming up (Rep netball trials for 2020 and her final Band concert) so I’m making her stay in bed, drink lots of fluids and conserve her energy.

Me, I’m taking advantage of her being quiet to do a bit of card making.

First up is a card for the current Tuesday Morning Sketches #525.

I used a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called ‘Big Birthday Wishes’. I created a background with the balloon image using Catherine Pooler Design inks and then stamped one of the sentiments onto a die cut piece for the centre, then added a bit of blue and white twine to finish the card.

My next card is for the Global Design Project #211 – Happily Every After.

I used a stamp set from Stamps by Me called ‘Beautiful Inside & Out’ which is coloured with my Stampin Blends.

My next card is for the current challenge at Seize the Birthday #176 – for the kids.

I’m having loads of fun with this splatter technique for a background and used it again here with a silhouette image and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp ‘Celebrate you’.

Next is a card for 2 challenges:

I used a stamp set by Simon Says Stamp called ‘If the hat fits’ along with a swirling star stencil.

My last card is for 3 challenges:

For my card, I used a die set from MFT which is an alphabet balloon set. Can’t get more focus on a sentiment than this right?!

Well, that’s it for today, thanks for stopping by and checking out my creations.
