Fly me to the moon... taking a blogging break...

Afternoon all!

I know it's unlike me to be posting on a monday afternoon! But i had an early finish at work last night so got 8 hours kip in this morning!
I'm here this afternoon with my latest magnolia creation but also to let you all know i'm going to be taking some time out from blogging over the next four-five weeks... I'll still be uploading my DT commitments and any makes i can squeeze in tho it may be a little difficult as my craft room is about to be all boxed up as i'm redesigning it... i've been pulling my hair out for weeks as, as much as i look organised i'm really not!!!

So the lovely hubby has said he would paint (with my help of course) and make me new workspaces etc! I'm very excited! tho it means the next 4 weeks are going to be tough with not much space or time to craft! as it'll all be in boxes... boooo hisss what am i going to do with all my free time....


Anyways... back to today's project... I've dug out all my space themed magnolia stamps once again, she's one of my favourite tilda's so sweet to colour too! As you can see, she's been coloured with my lovely promarkers... to which i need 5 warm greys to compleate my set!! yay!!!

I've also used 3D gloss to give her space bowl on her head a little dimension and effect of glass!


Although these wooden shapes are actually snowflakes i love them because my project is all about space the stars on them are so sweet! they started off as plain wood so i used some stick n melt glue from stampin' up and covered them in sparkles from SU. I think they're lovely they come in packs of 45 9 different designs you can get them here from Sunrise Crafts.

I've used lots of different little bits for my card today, the arrow with the magnolia sentiment is from pebbles inc chips pack i've had for yonks and thought it was something quirky for my card!, shimmer dots and brads i've dotted around! and used the sweet little rocket stamp on my backing papers, which are from papermania's fantasy collection which i picked up for a bargain price of £2 for a pack of A4!! last weekend at a local garden center! I do love a bargain, tho i'm now on a spending ban until the next magnolia and simply sassy stamps are released :-(boooo!!!

Hi Carly Ann :)
WOW! This is looking so amazing! Love the stars, they are so adorable as is Tilda :)
I´m so into these moon themed stamps but I´m sorry to say I haven´t made anything with them yet and you inspired me to slide them up my list ;)
Stunning blue nuances and loads of pretty detail :)

Good luck rearranging your craft space :) It´s going to be smashing!

Thank you so much for joining us at MDUC this week :)
Welcome back!
Hugs
