Rain, rain go away

Hi all,

I hope you had a good weekend. It's been a bank holiday over here, and yes, it did what it always does anywhere on a bank holiday - it rained!

It was back to normal today. Daisy went to kindy and Martha and I went to training. Well, I trained and Martha slept. I'm not getting quite so achy afterwards which is a good thing. I then did a bit of crafting while Martha had her afternoon nap. Daisy had some shoes in a great box with a hinge lid and I was sure I could use it for something. I've covered it in paper and punched holes in it with my big bite. The paper on the lid is some gorgeous paper by Anna Griffin that I have had for ages. I have glittered the centres of the flowers and added gems to the letters. The butterfly is a stamp by Kaisercraft which I stamped onto acetate and then coloured in with sakura pens. The flowers around the sides are a stamp by SU.

I'm entering this into CRAFT - fancy floral and Incy Wincy Designs - sparkly glitter.
