Can you believe that March is tomorrow!? I can't! That means one quarter of the year is done already! With that being said today I have the last prompt for this months Clairestelle8 Challenge to share! See more after the jump!

Nail Crazies Unite Day 24 - Red & Black

Hey Lovelies!,

I hope that you're doing well. I'm okay I think I can feel a slight headache coming on since the weather has been wonky I'm not even surprised. I'm going to attempt to nip this in the butt before it gets any worse! I'm part of a group on Facebook called Nail Crazies Unite and twice a month we come together and create manis based on a prompt.

Clairestelle8 February 2017 Day 21 - Toys

*INCLUDES PRESS SAMPLE*
Hey There!,

How have you been? I'm okay I had physio for my back today and it felt amazing! So I have decided that once I get caught up on these few prompts that I am behind on that I'm going to scale it back a bit and only do one post a day unless I have to do two. I don't know why me and my crazy ass decided to do two posts a day to begin with lol. Anyway I have the Day 21 - Toys prompt for this months Clairestelle8 Challenge. Keep reading for more! 

Clairestelle8 February 2017 Day 21 - Toys

When I saw this prompt I immediately thought of Toy Story. I don't know about you but I have watched each and everyone of them and have re-watched them with my daughter countless times. I love those movies. Seeing as I don't own any stamping plates that have Toy Story on them that meant I had to do some freehand work. Not too shabby but hopefully if I do this in the future it will be better.

Hey Guys!,

Ugh. Last week was kind of frustrating and then the start of this week wasn't all that great either. Early last week I found out that on of our good family friends father had passed away from testicular cancer. Then just over this weekend, I found out that my good high school friend, her sister had a stroke was in surgery and then pass away today and was only 17. So to be honest I've just been out of it. So now I'm trying to get caught up on some stuff for the blog because I just couldn't be bothered. 

Anyway, today I have the week four Jewels prompt for last months 30 Days Of Colour Challenge. Let's get started, shall we!
