It's been a looooong day for me and my hubby! We got up early to look after guests on board the boat and then had the rest of the day off, but stupidly we decided to go to Ikea to get some bits and pieces we need for our new apartment. You would not believe the crowds that were at Ikea in Athens today!!! It was almost too difficult to walk around! We had to abandon our trolley at one point just to get down an aisle to look at something and someone stole it!
Then my husband went to go outside to measure up the car to find out what would fit in it and he saw the queues at the checkout and people pushing and shoving and fighting and decided we should just make a run for it without buying anything! So, it was a very disappointing day. We went to Leroy Merlin after Ikea (which took twice as long as it should as we got lost on the way) and then to Kotsovolos where there was no-one manning the counters so we were not able to be served and had to abandon our purchases there too... Bah humbug I say. My feet are killing me! Why would I wear such uncomfortable wedges on a serious shopping day?! Exhausted and cranky and not much ticked off my list... phooey balooey!
Anyway, on to my project for today... here's one I prepared earlier for my guest design spot at My Sheri Crafts today... The theme for the challenge this week (challenge #70) at My Sheri Crafts is Think Pink in honour of Breast Cancer awareness month.
Yes, it's another bookmark! Another one to tick off my Christmas list. This wee cutie is a favourite of mine from Tiddly Inks. Her name is Lilli Claire and the title of this image is Make a Wish. Isn't she sweet?! I have tried to colour her mostly with pinks (see copic details below) and I have added a shiny glimmer gloss to her wings (can't remember the name of the stuff). The seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl, and I am not sure what brand the paper is. I have added a button from Blooming Felt and a charm from Da Wanda. I cut the circle with my Slice Elite and inked the edges with Distress Ink in Walnut.
I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity #39: Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #102: Things with Wings
Sew Many Cards: Anything Goes
Here are the copics I used:
