sushi anyone?

Some bits I made for my neice before she left for Uni back in Sep last year. She's a huge sushi fan so crocheted some for her, just for fun :)

The egg one is her favourite so made her a mini one too :)
and then just decorated a plain notice board with some paint, felt flowers and lots of stamps

still crafting :)

O.K My third and last post for tonight. Then I'll save the rest for tomorrow. This cute image ('Greeting Farm' stamp set) has been sitting on my desk for months waiting for me to turn into a card. It was coloured in (with Copics, what else?) and had the matching bits of pattened paper (Basic Grey) but for some reason it just sat there until I finally had enough and just bit the bullet and whipped this up.

So nothing fancy, just used some fab dies (heart doily is Cheery Lynns, flowers and leaf flourish is MFT dienamics range) and some chocolate pearl half gems with a bit of ribbon - job done.

and that, is all I have for today.


See, told ya I'd be back soon.  This time with a bit of crochet.  Wanted to crochet a Minion (after watching Despicable Me) so googled and found this fab free pattern on Wolfdreamer's blog (don't you just love the internet?!).   So, thank you Wolfdreamer!  I tweaked the pattern slightly and made mine short and squat and also used felt for his mouth and love the finished result :D  In real life he only stands about 4" tall and currently resides on my hubby's desk!

I also managed to finish knitting my first scarf for hubby but have yet to take a photo of that.  Will try and get round to doing that sometime and maybe get him to model it for me LOL.  I do have another fun crochet project I finished for my niece which I will post maybe tomorrow and I am currently attempting to crochet a cardigan, so will let you know how I get on with that.

Something different and back to basics

Hello there.  Again, long time no speak - I keep uploading posts and saving them meaning to do a quick write up and then post it but before I know it, I've got 3 or 4 of them sitting there and weeks/months have gone by.

Big Oops!  So, here's the first of the backlog of crafty things I have made since my last post.

This was a birthday card I made for hubby's sister.  Wanted to do a non cute card and I knew I wanted to try out some silhouette stamps I bought just for such a non cute occasion.  (I got them from Stamp addicts - after seeing them by chance in one of their newsletters and knew I HAD to have them!)  No colouring either!  Just good old stamping and heat embossing.

The image has been stamped and embossed with black holographic embossing powder and then I have just masked a circle of the sun and sponged the background with various distress inks.  To be honest, the colours aren't what I had in mind but I just went with it then just found some co-ordinating cardstock and papers to mat and layer it.  The sentiment has been punched out with my ATB tapewriter which I haven't used for ages and I've just added some orange gems either end to finish.

Right, will be back with more shortly!
