~ H{ippity} Hop! ~

Gosh, I'm so glad that last week ended as it was a very hectic week that left me thoroughly knackered. I tried to do a 12x12 LO but just couldn't and instead settled for a 4x6! My boys had to attend 3 violin concerts in a row, starting from Thursday and I was involved in a car boot event on Sat morning (PTA stuff). But the icing was attending a craft fair on Sunday, all on my own, and getting some new stash! Bliss!

Anyway, enough rambling.... earlier last week, did a canvas as a birthday gift for my SIL. I made use of 'What Matters Most' stamp set as well as 'Love In Return'.

Took inspiration from the photo and that's how the tree came about. The stamped image was coloured using Copic markers. Patterned paper by MME's Bloom and Grow, punched using MS border punch (I've got a serious addiction to them). Photo was taken, kindly by a stranger, in Paris Disneyland, way back in Oct 2008. Gosh, does it seem that long that we were there?

The side of the canvas was stamped using a border stamp from 'Sweet Thoughts Of Spring', and coloured in using Copic marker.

This is the last week of the school term before the boys break up for Easter for 2 weeks. Looking forward to that! That will leave me some time to play with my new stash and stamps from Unity! Thanks for dropping by and wishing you a Happy Easter!
