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.

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.

Using Dies

I usually have trouble with dies. I buy them, then don't know what to do with them. So I got this set of Sue Wilson dies, from the Australia range. This is the background set.
I added some stamped flowers from some of my Dreamees stamps and punches some leaves.
I am very pleased with it. So I will use this set again.
