Altered bag

I'm back already to show you what I worked on yesterday.

I wasn't in the best frame of mind yesterday as I found out the night before that one of my oldest friends, who I went to school with, has just been given 6 months to live as she has lung cancer. To say I am devastated is an understatement.
Well, I didn't think that my brain would come up with much through all the tears and heartache, so I sat down to colour in and just chill out. When I'd coloured the image I saw the stack of plain bags I just bought sat on the floor and thought I'd have a go at decorating it. Well, the image and the papers just seemed to come together and in no time I had finished! This is the end result:
I know the stitching at the top is a bit wobbly but I think it adds to the charm. I've left the top left blank to add a message to when I decide what I'm going to use it for.

The image and the papers are from Polka Doodles. I coloured the image with my ProMarkers and FlexMarkers. I also added the Marianne die cut butterflies and distressed the edges with Tim Hotlz Spun Sugar distress ink.
All in all I think it turned out quite well.

oh dear!

I can't believe it's been 4 weeks since I blogged! How bad am I especially after saying I would blog more regularly!
I've had a bit of a hectic month to be honest, I went to Spain to surprise my friend who lives there for her 50th birthday, and she was well surprised! We had a great time although it did wear me out as I wasn't to well when we went, and I'm still under the weather. I've had awful bronchitis and am on my 3rd set of antibiotics, so fingers crossed this set do the trick and send it packing.
Then I've been back and forth to the hospital to visit my great uncle who is sadly not going to be with us for much longer. And on top of all that we have been trying to get drawings and plans sorted for us to have an extension built!

 I have however manged to do quite a few cards during all that, here are a few of them.
This is the one I made for my friends 50th. It's mainly using DoCraft products from the latest goody bag, and the base card is centura pearl from C&C.


These are a few cards that my friend asked for to go in her shop.
These are using the Stampin Up motorcyle stamp and papers.
 
And these are using Stampin Ups Beware Pirates stamps.
 
I will be back soon with more cards to show you and a few other things I am working on at the moment.
