Bomshell Hop-- Pretty In Pink


I haven't been doing a lot of crafting this week but this is my contribution for the Bombshell Blog Hop- Pretty in Pink.

I have discovered that I definitely "need" a brick texture plate. This card could have used some texture on the main mat and brick would have been perfect!
Embellishments from the Pound Shop, DCWV cardstock, the window stamp is Creative Expressions and the Bombshell Angel is peeking out from the window.

Remember, do leave a comment. Each comment you leave is an entry to win this prize package:


Here's the hop list, do visit each of these lovely ladies and see what they've been up to! Remember to leave comments and enjoy the hop!!

Crobot Family!

I've been enjoying a bit of crochet lately-- in fact, quite a lot-- but I haven't been sharing it with you! Sorry about that... Remember Crobot 1.0 and Wheely? They have now been joined by Matryoshka. Here they are together sitting on my desk next to my dinner plate.

They are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Sumo. His body and limbs are finished and his arms have been attached, but he still needs his legs to be put on and embellishments added, plus he also needs hair and his little Sumo pants. Oh, and a face. Lots to do then. :)

I just thought I'd check in. I need to get a picture of the sweater I've made for my daughter. It looks great, it actually fits, and it has survived its first wash. She loves it!

My First Award! Thanks Sarah!

My first ever Blog Award! Hooray! I like these things because it gives you a chance to showcase people you think are talented. But first, to business.

Upon accepting this award, I am required to name seven creative things I've done lately, and since I haven't posted for two weeks, this should be easy.

I have:
1. Crocheted a sweater for my daughter
2. Tarted up an already-made card for a friend's birthday
3. Worked on my cross-stitch UFO until I got eye strain
4. Coloured an image with my new Copic Ciao markers
5. Started a new amigurumi robot matryoshka
6. Crocheted my ninth square for my partwork project
7. Begun re-organising my craft area... big job!

And now to nominate the next generation of winners! Congratulations to Stempelienje, Miss Magoo, Mrs. E. Taylor, Glittery Katie, and Nicole Maki! There are many more I would love to regale with this award, but I need to leave these winners somewhere to go too!

I promise, more crafting to come. Bombshell has some faboo challenges this month so I'm going to be completing them for sure! Stay tuned. :)
