Over on the crafts beautiful forum Laverne aka Golden Hipie, is hosting a challenge where you have to create a card with the theme of Autumn! This here is my entry where I have created a multi functional card which is a ard come wall hanging piece of craft art, somethin that is aesthetically pleasing for the receiver to enjoy rather than closing away in a drawer! I have created my design on a basic circular format using punched out flowers, ribbon rose buds, stitched on beads with bronze metallic thread, unusual shell type like beads (for bracelets), sequins and gorgeous brown paper with a turquoise butterfly! I am really delighted with this make as the design just happened itself as I played around!
Just wanted to show a couple of my new makes made recently, for two special people in my life!The first one is very basic as iIwanted the paper to talk for itself. All I've used is flower paper and ribbon, tied bows and stitched on gold beads!
The other card I have used beautiful pink pisley paper, floral coloured paper then threaded on beads to silver wie and created a flower shape by hand!
Thanx for looking. x
Yesterday I was looking after my two angels as Josh is not in nursery on thursdays! We went to the park in the morning and in the afternoon we played..........TRAINS! And here are some pictures to show you Joshs' remarkable Thomas The Tank Engine train set that he has built up in his bedroom! Josh just llllllllloves trains! as most little boys do! Just thought I would share our fun!
Afterwards Jenni had to get going for going to a friends' of hers in the afternoon so, I went to look at the basic craft things they had and below is what I got along with two little cards i'll be sending off! Above, pictured is two books I bought for Josh - he loves his trains! This will be his bedtime stories tonight and probably tomorrow too. Overall I had a great morning with my sisters and look forward to it again soon.
