No Waffling today ... just photos ....how 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

Recent Makes

Some things I have been working on 

I am in a group on Facebook called UK & Ireland craft swaps and for the month of July I am hosting some swaps ..... My first swap is for an altered clock .... please stop by and join in if you can... The group is an international group and anyone in the world can join .... we have swaps that are just for the UK and international swaps too .... they are a GREAT  group of people and always up for a giggle ...

So back to my post .... here are some things I have been working on ... hope you like them 

This is a box I made for my Friend Carole  and it is so she can organize herself with birthday cards etc.... she liked the one I made for myself so I made this one for her ..

These are on the top of the box and I love how they turned out .... i inked them in red ... stamped in stazon black then put on Glossy accents ..

This is for a swap I did on my facebook group and it was a Faux gum box swap ...
There are some great tutorials on Youtube on how to make these ... i followed one by Deborah Hemsworth  ( that is also what she uses on Youtube ) 

I used a spellbinders die and made these oval tags for inside the gum box 
I sued some papers sent to me by my friend Kerry (youtube Kerry Denyer ) 

This was so much for to make ... just hope my swap partner likes it 

Here are a couple of cards I made recently 

Many thanks for stopping by ... Please leave a comment I love to hear what you think
