Where has the week gone....

......And as usual my good intentions are out of the window ....trying to get several jobs done at the same time and not completing any of them ....including blogging.

I did manage to decorate a parcel for someone this week...in desperation I did reach for some craft tools (circle punches) but this was to aid me with recycling a used bit of wrapping paper ....and in my defence I also used scraps of paper for the decorations .....I would have stencilled the circle design with paint but actually didn't have much time to allow for drying and I think the paper circles covered any marks much better..
....and as I was in a hurry and to make up for my crafty cheat I recycled a cord handle off one of my ribbon boxes to attach the hand doodled tag. To add a bit of colour to the tag I just loosely coloured with some felt pens and then washed over with water.....so quick and .... truly.... I prefer the effect if I rush it and bleed the ink over the edges 😉

I turned one of my practice pieces into a little note card, which hopefully fits in with Less is Mores one layer "add a stem" challenge.
I'm hoping my circle design and label counts for Allsorts circle cards challenge (does a tag count as a card?)
I have never joined in with "Hiding in my closet" before, but as they have a scrap challenge I thought my project my fit in with them
Another challenge site new to me is Crafting with an attitude.

.....did think the card needed a little more detail....can you "spot" the difference😁

I can totally relate to you, starting lots of jobs and finishing none of them!! (My Dad tells me I'm easily distracted!) Love your tag, and spotted the difference - super cute addition! Lou x
