Working 9 to 5

What a way to make a living - too right lol! I wish I had just been working 9 to 5 over the last few weeks. I am pooped as I have been in at 8 and not home til 6.30, trouble is I am a night owl and seem to get loads done in the wee small hours. Well if there is a choice to craft or sleep, crafting wins hands down, that shows my devotion because any one who knows me knows how much I love my sleep :D

Well more little note books today using another scrummy combination of sage shadow, kraft and whisper white craft ink. A little close up below of a fairly new technique for me of poppin pastels, which has a lovely subtle effect.

Have a fab day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Sparkly & bright, jolly wheel and fresh cuts.
Ink: Chocolate chip, close to cocoa, chalks and whisper white craft.
Card stock: Sage shadow, kraft and whisper white.
Misc: 1/4" whisper white grosgrain ribbon.

Tell me you didn't make a little mask and then sponge chalk around it to make a snowman? Because that would be GENIUS of you! If I've got the wrong end of the stick and you didn't do that, then I AM A GENIUS for thinking of it!

Your blog is a continuous inspiration!

Ahh, so that's how you do it! You just don't sleep! Was wondering where you squeezed your crafting time in LOL!
Gorgeous notepads and an equally gorgeous colour combo! You pop more pastels, they look great!
