'H' is for Heather

This is a birthday card for my niece who is fascinated by letters at the moment and loves finding a 'H' for Heather on signs and food boxes etc.
It has been decorated using die cut shapes from cuttlebug dies and sizzlit dies.

A couple of bags!

The challange on the Vanilla sugar site for May is to make a bag. I found some nice patterns that I was going to use but couldn't get the fabric I wanted locally so I will make them when I have found the fabric I want on-line and also when I have more free time!
The first bag I made was for a present for a friend- I still need to get around to making one of these 'buttercup' bags for myself!

The second bag I made is to store some of my puppets in which I used to use for teaching- I love the alphabet fabric and it's really thick cotton.

Christmas robin

This is my card for the Bubblyfunk 25th challenge for May.
The challenge was to make a card with red and green as the main colours and then as a bonus you could include your own background- mine has been stamped using a roller with a holly pattern, a tag- the circle may not be tag shaped but they are tags! and inchies- my inchies have been cut in half diagonally to make the corner triangles- triple bonus points!
The robin and holly leaves have been curved and slightly decoupaged- I love the effect and will be trying it with a lot more stamps.

beaded dragonfly

This beatiful dragonfly was made as part of the bubblyfunk cyber crop. I found the tutorial on you tube and was surprised at how easy it was to make!
I will be making a lot more of these and may try using double the amount of beads to try making a larger dragonfly.

Oliver Owl

I have wanted to make this owl for ages after buying the pattern from a seller on etsy. It took me ages to decide what fabrics to use but I'm very happy with how he has turned out.
Although I think his eyes look a bit too big- the pattern said you could cut round them with pinking shears before attaching so on the next one I make I'll buy some scissors and try that.

Twit Twoooooo

I made these little notelets as part of a swap.
The owl is a Dawn bibby design stamp which I paper pieced to make each one different.
The scalloped edge was then embellished using card candy.

Bubbly cyber crop

I made this desk-top caddy over the weekend during a cyber crop on Bubblyfunk. It was my second attempt as the first one went completely wrong and is now in the recycling bin!
I used double sided card and glass beads to embellish the caddy.
