Decorative Glass Blocks

I Can't believe it was July when I last posted. So I am probably talking to myself here.
So what have I been doing?
Having Craft classes for friends at my home for one thing. Busy with visits from Social Workers and Occupational  Therapists and builders, ready for our alterations. Then we will be hopefully getting Dave an electric wheelchair so he can get about indoors instead of sitting in one chair from morning until night.

So on the craft front, I have been decorating those glass blocks that walls in bathrooms are made from.
These have been modified to include a plastic money box fitment in the top.
Thanks for popping by.
I will upload some more soon.

Napkin cards

Have you seen how pretty napkins are. Well I have done a few classes over the last two weeks showing my ladies and one gentleman how to incorporate napkins into your card making and other crafts.
They have proved very popular and so everyone is busy looking for more napkins.

I previously made coasters with napkins and they have been done in my classes too.

Thank you for stopping by, It has been a while since I posted. So have other cards to show you.

Another 12 x 6 for a Wedding

The theme for this wedding was Limonchello. So I got to work on lemon and silver grey. I was really pleased how this turned out and so was the Bride and Groom.

12 x 6 card

 I love using the 12 x 6 inch cards from Anna Marie Designs. The make such special cards. I have made 4 of these so far. This one was for an order.

This card, I found a cat image on the internet and made a card and box for an order for the same person.

I am not making much at the moment. So much to be done in the home but if its sunny I am in the garden with a book.

Such a shame that Kraftyhands have closed the door on their shop and website. Good luck boys for your future projects.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Up-cycled tables

Yes more up-cycling. I was given two metal tables that came from Ikea, a good few years ago. I spray painted them. cut a stencil on my Cameo, then sprayed the flower design on the top.

Wedding Card

I saw a card on Debby's blog HERE and had to get the dies from USA, Simon Says stamps. This is my take on Debby's card. I really love her work, I can tell her cards just by seeing the photo in my blog feed. Thank you Debby for the inspiration.
