Bit of upcycling

I cannot take credit for all the hard work the hubby can :) Hope you like the transformation from the old ragged chest of drawers that used to house tools etc.... to one that now houses my crochet blankets :)

The paint is old white by Annie Sloane

Easel card

Ive had a couple of these easel cards in my stash for a number of months and it wasn't until I went away with a few like minded people for a weekend did I get them out and make something with them. I 'm glad I did  as I love the result.

I am entering this into the ABC challenge

I had a lovely crafting weekend away with like minded people. Unfortunately a good friend was unable to come and was sorely missed. I made a variety of cards one of which was another easel card.

For this card I used a Pure Innocence stamp which was paper pieced, its wings were given a sprinkle of glitter. The die cut  butterflies were suspended on wire and again glittered and glossed.

I am going to enter this into Papertake Weekly's  challenge - Bingo  the line I've used is glitter, free and diecut and Stampalot - Pink
Items used :
Melissa Frances Organza Pouf Ribbon in pale pink available from , beaded string, adhesive flat backed pearls, vintage bronze charm painted with paint dabber and gingham ribbon- all available from The Ribbon Girl

Girly card


I have seemed to lose my card making mojo  so cards are a little lacking from me at the moment however I have a week off work and am going away at the weekend with some fellow crafty girls so thought I would get into practice with this girly card.

For this easel card I used an image from one of the  Lilli of the Valleys art pad and their paper. I added glossy accents and glitter. I made a banner and tied it onto florists wire painted with acrylic paint as I did with the bronze vintage frame which I sprinkled with glitter.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
