We are having a miserable, wet weekend here so I have treated myself to a few hours in my craft room which is just what I need to recharge the batteries after a busy week :)
I have made a big decision to leave my job at the end of the summer and return to being a full time student in the autumn.....it has taken a lot of time to reach that decision and I am so relieved now that I have finally made up my mind! The prospect of spending a year focusing on the boys and my own development is really exciting although it means that we will have to make lots of changes as a family with one less income coming in. It will definitely mean that I can spend less money on craft supplies but I have so much already it will just encourage me to be more creative with what I have :) I am very lucky to have such a supportive family to enable me to take this time out....
Anyway, all of this soul searching has been very much about family and home so I had to play along with this week's one layer challenge at Less Is More where the theme is Home. Here is what I came up with:
I used my new Reverse Confetti stamps - The Buzz to stamp this sweet beehive and coloured in with Spectrum Noir pencils. The sentiment is from Avery Elle. I like how this simple scene turned out :)
I also made two cards for the latest Muse Christmas Visions. I used a similar layout as the fab design from Chris Blagrave but went with kraft and white for my design:
I really liked the offset wreath and the bold sentiment so that is what I focused on. I coloured the wreaths in with white pencil and the white sentiment is die cut from glitter card although that doesn't show up well here.
Here is the original card from Chriss which is so crisp and fresh - I hope you can see how I was inspired!
I will also link up at the Holiday theme at Addicted to Stamps.
Thanks for stopping by - sorry it is such a long post!
