Show stopper Shoes

I was inspired yesterday by Kirstin's quirky Saturated Canary blog to make a shoe with a little difference. It also gave me a chance to make a flower using the beading mesh wire that I have had for sometime.

Hope you like it, have a happy day and thanks for stopping by.

A Lillies, cupcakes and games kinda Sunday

I finally got around to making some lillies on Sunday(yesterday).
My grandchildren were visiting so they helped (well they applied a little glue!)and am quite pleased with the result but I'm sure, as with everything, the more you practise the better you get. I found the instruction on a very talented lady's blog Valitasfreshfolds

Next on the list was the Cupcake making. This is where the kidos came into their own using a cupcake maker they got for Christmas.
Don't you think they look yummy? Tasted so good!

Finally to burn off the cupcakes we played the Xbox Kinect Athletics. I actually came lst in the hurdles (oh would'nt it be good it was for real!).

Hope you had a good kinda Sunday whatever you were doing.

Golden Nugget Box

I made this box for the Papercraft Planet 3D104 challenge. I printed off some polka dot paper from a cd that I have and embellished it with dotty ribbon, and a black rose that I made. The wrap around is a punched border stuck onto black paper.
I love making boxes and am trying ideas making paper lillies that I will post later. Bye for now, Vee

Shabby Tea Room Challenge 51

This is my entry for the Shabby Tea Room Challenge this week. I was particularly drawn to it because it features one of my favourite colour combinations, red and black.

For the dress I used a scalloped circle die and punched a heart shape for the bodice. I used the frame pieces of the scallop as the black embellishments,cut some sprigs of flowers from an embossed piece of card,made the flower from copy paper and inked it and applied glossy accents. The skirt was embossed using a border embossing plate.

It took quite a while to do but I'm pleased with the result hope you like it too.
