Sweet Birthday

Ive had such a busy week this week,  Ive not had chance to make so much,  we had visitors Monday thru to Thursday and Mum had to have Day surgery Weds and the effects seems to have made her Alzheimer's 10 times worse this week....  I think with the combination of lots of visitors and the Hosp hasn't helped her mind and is more confused..

However....   today I managed to get some time to craft and get my mind off things and winning the Simon Say Stamp challenge last week was a real boast I needed... I'm looking forward to my goodies arriving,  yes Ive already ordered stuff..  he-he

On to the card now and stop waffling...

I used this fab image this week and decided to go Orange and Green this week to make a change from Pink, I used lots of new things on this Make,  my new MS Doily punch, some new Gems I got for Christmas that match the papers I had in my Stash they are MME Bloom and Grow, I layered this make with lots of Sheets and finished off with some Roses which are of course Wild Orchid Craft.

This card is following another sketch and using Punches, I used the new fab range from LOTV and coloured this using my PM's  the DP's are Papermania the Image is mounted onto Pink card with Spun Sugar inked on the edge, I then punched out a border using Fiskars border punch on Pink card and attached some candy stripe paper, that has Sheer organza apple ribbon attached and tied into a bow, I also used a thin pink ribbon across the bottom and  some WOC roses and pearl pins with the Punched Butterfly and pearls finish this make off.

Well Im trying to get into creating Male card a little more as Im always making cards all pretty and Girly,  so for this make imfollowing a Sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, and  themes of Paws the thought and popcorn the bear.

So for the papers I used Paper Cellar Plaids, a very useful pack if I do say so myself :-) I cut out some shapes following the sketch I thought they actaully looks like Golf Clubs when I saw the sketch so it is meant to look like one LOL.. I added some Brown card stock behind popcorn, but cos he's so big nearly fills the card, he's coloured in with PM's (Still cant colour Fur very well ) I added some really cool looking Metal golf balls and Tees and some Card candy.

Cup and Saucer Pin Cushion and Charm

Well this is certainly not a Card or anything papercrafty,  over on the Craft Beautiful forum we all took part in a Secret Santa and this is the Gift I made for my lady.

Bought,  One Cup and Saucer from Dunelm Mill
Material :  Half a meter of material from Dunelm Mill,   I chose this to match the Cup and Saucer
Filling,   Wadding and Lots of it,  I cut out a Circle of fabric and sewed a running stitch around the edge,  gathered it up and stuffed with wading,  the ball is then glued into the cup,  I added some Pearl headed Pins and then made a little Sewing related Handbag charm and attached it to the handle, the charm was from Quixotic paperie, bag of Mixed Charms and was a perfect match for this make.

This is the first time I've made anything like this and am pleased with the result,  I will tweak it a bit on the next one I make.
