Little Claire's Challenge #29...Flowers and sketch

*Warning ~ Long post so grab a comfy chair, a cuppa and a few cookies*

Hello me lovelies

Sorry i haven't been around...i know i keep apologising but i think i need to explain why, over the last few months its been quite hectic here in my house due to having some work done in it which meant we had to pack things away until all the work was complete and it meant i was limited to what i could use craft wise, then Christmas came and now i'm having my kitchen done but in the mean time of all this going on i lost net connection which up to now all seems fine *phew*
Anyhoo while my kitchen is getting done i am not allowed home during the day because my youngest scallywag is not allowed to be there so i am at mums during the day and only home at night but after cleaning and getting prepared for the next day i am too tired to do anything else like crafting etc.
Tell you something i am so glad my 3 older boys are at school while all this is going on during the day because i think it would finish me off if they we're on their school holidays!!

The other night i managed to grab 5 minutes before the tiredness crept in so i thought i best get this post done but again blogger is misbehaving and not allowing me to post pictures :(
I feel like giving up all this because i am sick of my net been pants, blogger playing up and to top it it off Mr Mojo has decided to be a bit of a naughty boy and keeps playing hide and seek from me so i feel like walking away from it all...i don't know maybe i am just tired and run down because i don't feel for the last few months has been so hectic and i haven't really had much me time to sit and craft properly...we'll see how i feel when things have finally settled down here!!

Look im ranting on...sorry me lovelies, i really didn't mean to come on here and start ranting at you all, i just thought i owed you all an explanation of why i haven't been posting as much and for not visiting you all for the last few months, hopefully you will all forgive me because it isn't the case of not wanting to post or comment, its just i have so mush going on!!
 Again i'm really sorry, now rant over...promise :)

Little Claire's Weekly Project...Party Invite

Hello me lovelies

Sorry for not being around for the last couple of weeks but there has been so much going on at home and nasty germs had made an unwanted visit over Christmas...don't worry it didn't ruin our C'mas, i still got on with things plus to top it all off i've been having connection problems...once again :( 
Tonight all seems well and it's behaving itself so *fingers crossed* it stays like this...i felt awful i couldn't leave you all a C'mas message or anything so i hope you all you had a great C'mas and New Year!!
Anyhoo i wont bore you anymore with my waffle and get on with today's post...

It's my turn for the Little Claire's weekly project so i have a cute little party invite for you and it's a girly one too so without further ado, here's the little cutie...hope you likey!!


Little Claire's: Loverly Jubblies 'Daisy Bunting' stamp
Spellbinders: Scalloped and plain square nesties {i have used the largest in the set}
Spellbinders: Scalloped and plain cirlce nesties {i have used the second largest in the set}
Joy Craft: Flower die
Xcut: Decorative tags
Backing papers {of your choice}
Coloured card {of your choice}
White card
Ribbon {of your choice}

As you can see in the picture above i have already got my piece's cut out already so it's the case of putting it all together, here's the step by step of how to make it...

1) Attach your choice of ribbon to the large scalloped square with extra tacky tape.
Tip: To make sure it is central i have used the scallops as a guide so make sure there are equal amount of scallops at either side of the ribbon.

2) Stamp your image on to your white circle and then colour parts of the image you aren't paper piecing. Next attach your white stamped circle on to your coloured scalloped circle.
3) Stamp your image again on to your choice of backing, ready for paper piecing.

4) For the paper piecing...cut your chosen parts out of your chosen paper. I have cut out the bunting, balloon and her dress which can be a bit fiddly but i managed it.

5) Now attach your finished image to the scalloped square like in the photo above. On the back on the invite i attached a white square and this is where you add all the details of your party.
6) The next part is the fun part and that's to add all the pretty embellishments to your party invitation like the photo above.
There you have it your cute little party invite...hope you like this tutorial and found it easy to follow, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to leave a comment below and i will get back  you :)
Thank you for taking the time to pop by and for any comments you may leave :)
hugs and xxx
