Here I am!

Here I am 5 weeks later and feeling guilty for a few reasons! Firstly neglecting my blog and secondly for neglecting my crafting supplies! I feel I have found some inspiration today and made a card! Kinda excited because I have PTI goodies on the way and the sun is out again in the North East!

On to the card! I decided it was about time I got a card made for A Passion for Papertrey blog! The theme for the challenge is material. I decided to hop on the trend train and use some felt!!

I die cut the butterfly using the Sizzix Butterfly die from Stampin' Up! Before I cut it out I stamped the felt using Polka Dot Basics and some Raspberry Fizz Ink! From doing that I got busy with the Fizzy and broke out some Raspberry Fizz DP from PTI that I have been hoarding for a long time! Lol!

Anyway! I haven't been up to much just focusing on my degree work, starting my FMP and trying to finish my dissertation! I had a trip to the Hobby Crafts event at the NEC with my friend Kerry and stocked up on a few essentials! Oh and most excitingly I have been planning a holiday in July which is only 103 days away and that is to go to New York & Chicago. I have planned to be in Chicago for the CHA Craft SuperShow! I just hope and keep my fingers crossed I can get a ticket!

I am just as excited and even more so because it's closer being only 32 days away is a birthday trip with my friend Kerry to London and Paris! Whoo Hooo! More on that later! I'm off now to enjoy the sun and for a lil bike ride to meet my hunny on his way home from work!

Thanks for stopping by!
