Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #14

Happy New Year Everyone!!
Sunday once more, & another fab Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge for you to get your teeth into. This week, the ingredients are to:-
1. Use Michele's sketch,
2.Use stitching- real or faux,
3. Use a blue & white colour scheme.

I'm so fed up of making Xmas cards & anything wintery I thought I'd use one of the new Miss Anyas. This one was the least summery of the three, but it's nice to look ahead to Spring. Especially as it's so cold here & everything is white with snow, with more forecast!! I used DP from my Basic Grey Wisteria pad. The dark blue paper is stamped with a swirl with white Staz On ink. I really like how that looks.

In the close up you can see my faux stitching. I had intended to do some for real, but I didn't have time. I added Stickles to the daisies too. There are some Xmassy things I'm not ready to give up yet!! She's coloured with Promarkers, the flowers are from Hobbycraft & the leaf punch is by McGill. I hope you are now feeling inspired to pop on over to the C4E blog to see the gorgeous creations of my DT colleagues, here. Michele is offering another goody bag as a prize & we are looking for a Guest DT member for February. Two fantastic reasons for entering this week!

I've been staying at my parents mostly over the last fortnight & have not had much chance to get any crafting or much visiting done. My New Years resolution is to do more of both! Me & the boys are going home today, I'm soooo looking forward to getting some quality crafting time in, once the boys are all tucked up in bed. For now though, I have more mundane concerns, like going to Sainsburys - Big Yawn!!

Hope Everyone in Blogland is happy & well. I'm feeling a bit lonely. My hubbie has gone to Australia for a friends wedding. I should have been going too, but when it became apparent we could not afford to take the boys as well. I decided to stay behind as I could not bear the thought of being so far away from them for a whole fortnight. So in lieu of violins, any comments you leave would be greatly appreciated!!

Big Happy 2010 Hugs for you all!!

I should have known you would get these Greeting Farm cuties. I think they must be your favs. You really do fabulous work with them.
Is a fortnight 2 weeks? Wow, that is a really long time. I don't like being without my hubby either. If I lived closer I would come have lunch with you everyday!!!! If you get bored, just email me okay!
