Bird Box Template

I have'nt blogged for a while, I must make an effort to blog more often. I wonder if anyone else feels as I do about blogging. I always find it an effort to blog mainly because I think why would anyone be interested in what I'm doing. I suppose it might come down to when I was a child having a diary and not letting anyone see it, although there was nothing to hide it was just that your diary was very very private. Does anyone else feel this way about blogging?

Anyway to get to the point of this post, I've been making bird boxes to sell at fetes during the summer for my charity The Brooke equine animal charity. It's aim is to alleviate suffering of millions of horses, donkeys and mules working in the poorest parts of the world, providing veterinary treatment and teaching owners how to look after their animals so that they live healthy lives and in turn work harder to provide a better living for the owners.

I'd like to share the template for these cuties, go to Inspired Papertry Ink It's a little bit different from the usual square box.

Here are some of the ones I made:

I hope you enjoy making them as much as I did.

Thanks for stopping bye.

Card Swap

I would like to share a card I received when I took part in Krista's card swap and received a gorgeous card from Debbie wiccababe the colouring is simply wonderful.

This is the card I sent her. I drew the image using my friends wall art as inspiration.

Have a good weekend and thanks for visiting.

Flower Palette

I'm really into making paper flowers at the moment and the Shabby Tearoom's challenge this week just fitted in with this.

I have drawn the image using a piece of wall art that my friend has hanging on her dining room wall as inspiration. I then coloured her with promarkers and distress inks. The bird and sentiment are Birds of a Feather from The Artistic Stamper. I made the flowers using a heart punch,coloured them with distress inks and then applied some clear glaze.

Well thats all for now, must get on sticking and cutting! Have a good weekend whatever your doing.
Thanks for stopping bye.
