Designed 2 Delight

one super busy week this week.

I am heading back to work after 18 months off with my little man, so a full on week of training has meant not much room for crafting or blogging - or anything else for that matter.  But at the end of the week I will be a fully qualified Trainer and Assessor, so that is the up side of a super hectic week.

I have managed to get a couple of cards made late into the evening and I am here to share 1 of them with you now.

This is my entry into the monthly challenge at Designed 2 Delight - May Challenge

Copic Card Challenge

Morning again,

I just wanted to share with you my entries into the Copic Card Competion before I post them off this morning.

Now I know my colouring skills are not that great (yet - I do plan on getting better with practice), but I wanted to enter anyway because for every entry they receive Copic Australia is donating $5 to Koala Kids.  Koala kids charity helps children with cancer and their families.  For more information on the charity click here.

You also have the option of your card being given to one of the many children in hospitals around Australia (which I am doing).  So if you would like to take part in this years challenge it's not too late jump over to the Copic Marker Website for more details.  Oh and did I mention there is a prize of $750 worth of markers - woohoo! and your card gets displayed at the Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo, Brisbane, 8, 9, 10 of June.  I am attending this event, so it will be strange to see my cards on display.

Happy Crafting,

Happy Birthday

Morning Crafters

It's my sisters Birthday on Saturday, so being the lovely big sister that I am, I created her a wall hanging.  She added this project to her pinterest ages ago and I decided I would have a go at recreating it for her.

This is the original post

This is my version

As you can see I went with just the Purple/Pink colour families rather than the rainbow effect.
I attached them to a plan canvas that I picked up from Kamart in a 2 pack for $5 (Bargin!).  Thinking I needed to put the butterflies a bit closer together or add some more to it, I will make another 1 and see if I can improve :)
