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.

Kraftyhands colour Chip Challenge APRIL

This months blog challenge is, red, white and blue and the shape is a shield.
Here is my card for the challenge.
I have used the Equestrian Events CD, available from the shop HERE All CDs are on sale at the moment, so a good time to buy.
I have used an 8x8 blue blank card. With a red mat and then some papers from the CD. I printed a sheet of paper ribbons and used 2 blues under the image. I cut out the image and layered with dark blue card. For the shield, I used shapes, in a WORD document and filled with red. Printed and cut out. Some washi glitter tape was cut into 3 strips to make the lines on the shield. Finished off with some Candi dots and a sentiment from the CD.

A fab CD for that horsey person.
Do join in with the Challenge because the winner, if they have used a Kraftyhands product on the card, can win a voucher for £10 to spend in the shop.

Up cycling Table

I bought this table many years ago, in fact it was 25 years ago. I painted it green and used it for about 5 years. Then it went into the loft. When we moved here, I thought I would re-do it, rather than throw it away. So today, I painted it with Hessian colour Chalk Paint. It took 3 coats. One dry, I used the 12 x 12 stencil, that I bought especially for this table. I used a silvery dark grey craft paint. It has pride of place now, next to my reading chair, in the Conservatory.....

Oh and I finished this cardigan over the weekend for our granddaughter Elsie. Its only taken me 6 months! I have had so many other things to do first.

Thank you for popping by today.
