DT Time,at Creative inspirations,and my first,8 by 8 card & some doodling

Hi guys,
Well its time for,another challenge over at creative inspirations this week,and the theme is mothers day. Choosen by our lovely DT member Laney.
So I decided to make this wee box,and inside I have,put some flowers in.
So here it is,

DP's Anna,.Griffin,letters,from cricut storybook,butterfly from my stash,doolie,glitter,Die cut flower and swirl ribbon,spellbinders,dies,and some flowers.  This box,is all in one,which I prefer to make,its nice a neat and the top fits,nicely too. So if you would like to play,just pop over HERE to see the rest of the Brilliant DT,cards,and have fun.
Next I have made my first ever,8 by 8  card I got these,scalloped cards from QVC,great buy and super quality too,108 cards,for £13 and they are at least,280,320 gsm and you get all sizes in there too.
So here it is I have followed the sketch from Friday Sketches.

DP's.Anna Griffin,and Basil card,stock sentiment,Kan ban,wild orchid flowers sprayed with,pink perfect pearls mixed with water. Leaves,EK,punch,swirls, adheshive stones,colured with pro markers. Image Sugar Nellie,colored with,my Prisma pencils. Then added ribbon and some raffata to finish.

Next I have,used ultra thick embossing powder gold,then whilst still wet I stamped into it with the butterfly stamp,at the top,then stamped again at the bottom only this time when it had cooled down. Then I have taken my perfect pearls,mixed with water,and painted into the images. Then just did some doodling with some paints,and added some viva paper pens,into the wings.  Then just highlighted,the images,with white pen,and black.  This is not great i know but by this time I was so tired,and ached that much with all the painting just could not,do any more.
I am not doing any painting today,just do not have the energy I have completed,the ceiling,and done,2 main walls,2 coats,so got,another,main wall to finish,then one large wall were I am,adding wallpaper too. That is if I can,really should not have started this as boy my foot is killing me,and my boot is now covered in lovely white,and,vintage cream paint,lol.
Right before I go I would love to welcome Chrissy to my blog bless your heart hun for adding to my list of followers,if you have a blog hun let me know and I will pop over and say hi.
Have a great day guys love and hugs to you all.
