I am struggling a lot right now - feeling like everything is on top of me! Trying hard not to let the past bite me on the bum! Just did these in an effort to keep my hands and brain occupied! They're not brilliant but not bad for a novice flower maker. Practice makes perfect!!
This is my entry into the above challenge! Its also my very first shaker card. The only criteria for the challenge was that there must be two of the same creatures on it. Bumble Bees!! The images are part of a Cuddly Buddly free download - thank you! I hope you like it. Thanks for looking. Lea xx
Decided to have a go at something new that is not too difficult to do with your leg in the air! Decopatch. I have wanted to have a go at this for a while but was inspired by purplenikki's Inspiration Jar on her blog!
I started with a tiny trinket box as I had never done it before (apart from newspaper on a balloon **** years ago at school!!). This is why I chose pink - although it is my favourite colour - so that my grand-daughter can use it in her bedroom to put trinkets in. Here it is!!
As I was actually quite happy with that I progressed to the jar. This was a fruit pastille jar that someone bought into work for Christmas goody time. Of course I bagged it when it was empty with the immortal words " I could do something with that!!". And, thanks to Nikki, I have! Well, I have started anyway! Have asked her for some advice on doing the lid :s. Again - here it is! Will update when its finished!!
I am 54 (for a few more weeks). OK - update - 55! Married to Tony with 3 grown up children, their partners and six beautiful grandchildren between us. We have a dog called Jack and a cat called Tugger.
