CupCakes for Daisy

Well here we are going into week 3 for the builders to be 'in da house'

Crafting has had to take a bit of a back seat this week - that was until my friend Daisy asked me to help her make her CupCake Flower Box. This is something I'd put together a while back using polystyrene balls. It was a while since I had made 'something pretty' so it was lovely to get together and chat and create......

Next weekend is Suzicraft's 1st birthday so consider yourselves invited to the party. Maria Simms is going to be demonstrating along with yours truely. Then on Sunday Mike is taking part in the Great North Run in aid of Guide Dogs for the Blind so if anyone would like to donate I'll have a collection box with me on Saturday.

Take Care and thanks for stopping by - especially to those new followers to the blog!!

Canvas Playtime Part 1

Well, the builders have moved in to the house and the wet plaster has been removed... hooorrrayyyy. It's a tad messy here so I decided to stick to my head in the craft ranch and play.

This is an A4 canvas, painted with Claudine Hellmuth paints /gel mediums and Viva Ferro. The flowers were cut from Flower Shoppe. I needed to add some addage tickets and bling on to the canvas but the light faded and I had kids shouting for food... so it's TBC

See U Soon
