A Little Bit of this and a Little Bit of That!

Hi Everyone!  I haven't had much time for crafting this past week, with extra children in the house for respite for most of it.  I lost one child who we had for a week on Thursday only to gain another on Friday and she will be with us until Monday.  It's been another interesting learning curve for us, as this is our first time doing respite with other kids, and seeing the dynamics change when A isn't the only child in the house.

The time I did find to escape into my craft room, mostly late at night went mostly to design team projects which you will see in the coming week.

But here's a quick glimpse of what I have been up too on a personal and just for fun level.

Firstly I tried out some more new stamps (Dylusions) and some stencils (Prima & TCW) which I purchased  from Time to Create in my journal, playing with a mix of my Faber Castell Gelatos and Big Brush Pens.

I played some more with my Gelli Plate, using some florist mesh and my fingers,
 along with my favorite colors using Splash Inks.  I used the second print as the background for a Birthday Card for A's sister who turned 16 this week.

I created a Card with an Autumn Feel, to welcome in the new season from one of my 
Gelli Prints from a few weeks back

And last night and this morning I found a few moments to create a couple of ATC's for yet another ATART over at ATC's for All which are all using various backgrounds and vintage Easter Collage Images from Altered Pages.

This last ATC says it all.  Tonight I have been making some small Easter Gift Cards for A and E to go with their eggs for tomorrow morning.  They are both expecting lots of chocolate to come their way....... I have had it on good authority however, (A himself informed both Rod and I) that he is too old for an Easter Egg Hunt and too lazy.......this comment was totally out of the blue and we couldn't help but laugh at his honesty.  

Wishing all my crafty friends and fabulous followers and readers a Wonderful Easter.

Oh Danie what a wonderful journey you are on both artictically and personally.
Every little bit this morning is eye candy - which is fabulous as it is so non calorie!
Happy Easter to you all and big hugs to you and Rod as I am sure there will be some eyebrow raising moments for you both over the weekend!
