Buttons and Bows

I've enjoyed making this card for the Shabby Tearoom Challenge. I did'nt have any buttons so I made faux ones - hope this meets the criteria. The stamped girl is Olivia from Crafters Companion and I coloured her using Promarkers. The bows were make from an old tassel that fell apart - oh I do like to recycle. Hope you like it.

Sunny Day!!!!

YA! suns shinning here in Kent UK, dust is showing!! (must make mental note to do some housework sometime.) But first take the doggie for a walk, she's just dying to go to her favourite coffee/cake shop. No not ME!

Have a fab day.

Paper Shoe Template

Today I thought I'd post some paper shoes I've been making. They are so, so easy, just one piece of card makes the complete shoe. No messing about cutting different pieces and trying to fit them together. Theres also a liner for the shoe. I've gone for a modern look but am going to try vintage with some lace as a trim, that I will post later. I'm going to fill them with candies and bath goodies ( not both in one shoe LOL).

I found the template on a wonderful treasure trove of crafting and baking delights skiptomylou enjoy.

Have a happy crafty day.

Baby Toby(Tobias) Challenge

It is always such a joy when a new member of the family is born and what a wonderful way that eiglas is celebrating by posting this challenge. My entry was made using the free digi image that eiglas posted.

I though it cried out to be water coloured but did'nt have any paper that would go through my printer so I used promarkers sparingly to create a water coloured look. I also used some paper flowers that I have just learned to make.
Hope you like it.
I have'nt blogged for a while now due to personal reasons, but I'm back on track now and have promised myself that I will get to grips with this blogging malarky in 2011 - hope it does'nt end up like the rest of my new year resolutions LOL!
I've been admiring the various types of paper roses that are available and I could never get the colour/size I wanted so I though I'd have a go at making my own. I'm quite pleased with the results.

I got the tutorial from creativeexpressionsdesigns and used flower punches instead of the stamp and to give some a vintage look used my fancy scissors around the edges of the petals. Hope you like them and give them a go
