Not had time to do any crafting lately but in case anyone is interested or knows a famous Ray, we are looking for a buyer for the number plate RAY 9.  So if anyone wants to make a serious offer for it, we will give it serious consideration.

June Lavinia Blog Challenge

I've been a bit lazy lately with my crafting, not had much time, lost my mojo.
So I've decided to let myself back in gently and downloaded a beautiful digi-stamp from Lavinia Stamps.
I have transferred the image on to a blank linen bag and sewn and glued on some buttons, bling and a butterfly.
I hope I've done justice to the beautiful image ........ my ironing isn't up to much, but care needs to be taken with the transfers after adding the bling and finishing the sewing.

You'll need to forgive the crease across the middle, linen isn't the easiest thing to iron.

Easter present for a diabetic

I found the most amazing things at Ally Pally show last weekend.
This is my first project, which will be a present for my diabetic mother in law.
It will also be my entry for this months Spring colours.
This is the MDF jam jar that I bought from Anna Marie Designs

I've added a small note book and pen

I've used Lavinia stamps to create the boarder around the edge with gilding flakes
Forest Glade from Imagination crafts

I've also used a verse from Lavinia along with the Zen Butterfly and a stamps away mask

I've used the Toadstool houses and some Lavinia fairies and used mica powders to colour
The board was painted with Deco chalk paint, a piece of blue gingham and some lace ribbon, a feather and a few flowers.  I'm hoping this will be an acceptable entry to this months challenge.

Mothers day card for the Mother in Law

This years Mothers day card
I used a blank window card, inked the card with distress ink and an imagination stencil.
Randomly used the stencil to ink the heart pop out.
All flowers were dipped into UTE using my melt pot
Couple of bits of acetate, stuck the heart on the back piece of acetate along with the flowers
Bit of ribbon and a greeting.
First card I've made in ages.
