No Waffling today ... just photos happy are you now lol : ) 

                                                     I was asked to make a Pig stuffed toy for a lady I know for her friends birthday .... I sewed the snout on at an angle as I wanted the pig to have a cheeky grin ..

I put a pipe cleaner inside the fabric so I could get a curly tail 

An Easel card I made .. It had to have a bow, button & a handmade flower

Detail on the envelope .... i like to decorate this so it matches with the card ... I also think it is just that bit more special for the person receiving it ..

My friend Sandy came round last week for a craft day and we both worked on boxes that we had ... this is mine 

This is the lid of the box .... i used a mask that I had and polyfiller to get this effect ... then painted it a few colours before I decided to gold this Bronze/gold colour 

I love it and i am so happy with how it turned out ... the frilly lace was cream , I tried to dye it black but it came out this charcoal grey which I LOVE ..

Many thanks for stopping by ... Please leave a comment xxx

The pig is so darn cute and so is your card. Per your question about the die cut I used in Green on my Thank you card on Holley's Blog, that particular die comes from Marianne designs. Cheers, Holley
