Hobby Craft- Kids Craft

This afternoon I have something very exciting to share with you
 and this time it's all about kids craft.

The boys and I have had the opportunity to play and review Aqua Dragons from Hobby Craft. To say they were excited about this is an understatement and to be totally honest I was too.  Of course our first mission was to stalk the postman our second was a trip to our local shop to buy some bottled water. Everything else you get in the box.

Having two young children we love quick and easy and that's exactly what you get with Aqua Dragons. The instructions are real easy to follow and looking after your new dragon family is easy peasy too. Perfect when you have a busy family life!

Step 1

 Add the bottled water

Step 2

 Add the Dragon eggs

Step 3

 Pop the lid then wait for a day or two and hey presto some teeny weany Dragons, which can be viewed using the magnifying glass which is included.

Step 4

Feed your dragons (using the food sachet and spoon provided) every 2 to 3 days and take the lid off occassionaly to give them more oxygen and/also use the dopler. It really is that simple. 

First thing every morning the boys are eager to see how much their dragons have grown. If like my children they can't wait til the morning the colourful aquarium comes with a light. A great accessory for any childs bedroom. After a month our dragon family should be about 2cm in size. Pictures will be posted in due course.

You can buy these Aqua Dragons at you local Hobby Craft store or online here. Other craft items can be purchased here.

Hope you have enjoyed our post today

Sarah Hurley Challenges - All That Glitters is Gold

Woo Hoo it's Friday and the sun is shining. 
Is it safe to say summer is finally on it's way?

Today I'm sharing with you my DT card for  Sarah Hurley Challenges. This month my fabulous team member Candice has set our theme and she has chosen

All That Glitters Is Gold!

For more details about our challenge and some amazing inspiration from the rest of my DT girls please pop on over here

It's not a colour I have used before and I really struggled but with a good rummage through all my stash I came across some gold mirri card and some gold ink that admittedly has seen better days. My mojo def packed up it's bags and headed off for sunnier climates which was freaking me out a bit. Finally after 4 weeks!! I made a baby card below.

My elephant stamp is one that Sarah designed for PI and for those that know me well will know I have a little soft spot for elephants. The sentiment is part of Sarah's Dream A Little Dream girl journal set, both of which can be bought from Sarah's shop.

The baby rattle is from Sizzix and the flowers are made using a couple of X Cut punches with a little gem for a some sparkle.

Hope your having a wonderful day
and thanks for stopping by

Hugs Clare xx

Sarah Hurley Challenges

Evening all!

So after weeks of busily crafting away I can finally share something and that is my DT card for Sarah Hurley Challenges.

It's Nicole's theme this month and she has chosen

' Shades of Blue'

for more inspiration and challenge details pop on over here!

Admittedly this is not my usual style but I wanted to try something new and these fabulous new stamps from Sarah's shop were just the thing. I can honestly say I absolutely love them, you have no idea how fun they are. They actually remind me of when I used to dress my dolls up as a child, except now it's with paper lol. Also the girl journal stamps are mix and match so the possibilities are endless and there's a new boy and home set just released.

The design team and I have also been working our wee socks off for the latest Lookbook magazine, which we released today, it's just amazing! If you can't wait you can check it out here!

Thankyou so much
for stopping by
