I'm Still Here....

So, I decided to start my blog again as explained in my last post.  It was probably the wrong time to start again as I have NO craft room/space and NO craft supplies to hand.  The room I used is currently completely empty and waiting patiently for our builder to arrive! (on Monday hopefully!)
We are having an extension and therefore my stuff is all packed up and my twitchy fingers are having to find something else to at the moment.....

The exciting thing is that that means a brand new shiny area for me to craft, a brand new desk area and brand new storage so hopefully my creativity will flow and flow.  I plan to enter challenges again and just play....

The down side to this is that I have nothing to share with you except for this particularly BAD picture of a birthday card for my FIL.

 It was my first attempt at the bokeh effect.  I used brushos on watercolour paper to get to coloured background then sponged white ink through die cut circles (I hope that makes sense!)

I die cut the word DAD and the small banner using a spare piece of the watercoloured paper and mounted that all onto a circle.

My children said they thought it was a bit girly for their Grandad but I sometimes think that male cards can be dull and boring so it was nice to use some colour.

So, I will keep you updated with the build so please bear with me....I am vey excited to get going!!!!

Thanks for stopping by, take care.
