Mrs Fox



A Tilda fox I made while on a weeks annual leave - I borrowed the book off someone as I fell in love with her. Now I'm not the best seamstress and I found some of the instructions hard to follow but I was pleased with the result .

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

From this......

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

Lovely....

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
