New Home


My grandson, his lovely partner and my GGDaughter are moving into their first new home.
They, and DD and SIL, have worked very hard for the last week painting, cleaning....lots n lots of cleaning....and generally turning a manky house into a lovely new home.

Just a square and a triangle to make the house shape
The three hearts are different textures.
The large size, coloured, sparkled and crackled.
The middle size - corrugated card, painted and sprayed with iridescent medium
The small size - a punched shape - coloured and glittered
Sounds like the story of the three bears LOL

This one is the last of my 'coffee filter paper' flowers. I'll have to get in gear and make some more...h/work and gardening permitting.

 Simply Create Too #59 - no stamped images
 Crafty Girls #15 - anything goes - 2nd entry
 Crafty Hands #12 anything goes

Great Granddaughter's First Mothers Day Card


This a recent photo of my precious little Great Granddaughter who is 6 months old and nothing could be nicer for her mummy's first Mothers Day.

Computer generated sentiments cut with spellbinders vines of passion. The picture frame is made with spellbinders gold labels 4.
Rosie patterned DP topped with frayed muslin, a handmade glittery button tops an organza bow and a coffee fliter paper flower. Appli glue again to make the pearly dots - I'm getting better at these :)

Isn't she gorgeous....but then I am very biased, LOL
