Phew...just managed to get this finished in time for mothering Sunday. I thought I would make my mum something other than a card...
(have been making so many cards lately I was losing the will to live lol).
I really enjoy making these... I sit infront of the tv punching out hundreds of flowers (OK...slight exageration but not far off)...then sit & shape them & layer them ready for the next stage.
The pearls I bought off ebay by the 1000 so I can be generous with them.
After making this one I am planning to make a few more but shorter & without the bunting & bows.
I also want to make a a small wreath so I really will be making "hundreds" of paper flowers!
Looking forward to a lazy weekend..just me, a glass of wine & my glue gun.....Happy days.

All I can say is oh dear. . .I forgot to make a christening card order & it was due today...or yesterday seeing as it is now 1am. I only realized when my friend called for it at 5pm.
Needless to say I have made it ready for collection in the morning, but it was hard going. The crafty side of my brain just didn't want to function. It took me twice as long as it normally would.
I think it turned out OK, I just hope they like it...

Feeling blue

This the second Prima doll canvas I made.... again I kept it simple & didn't do to much to the actual background.
Really enjoyed making coming soon.

Finally used one of my Prima Doll stamps!

After getting all the shopping over with this morning I had intended to clean up my craft mess & get organized.
This just did not happen. Instead I got distracted after finding my Prima doll stamps (that I hadn't even taken out of the packaging!)
I bought a few of these a few months back & forgot all about them. How bad is that!

I decided to put them on canvas' & have a play. The one I am sharing tonight I didn't do too much to. I thought the paper was pretty, so I left it alone. I like the way it turned out.
I am also making a few cards the same, but am just at the paper piece stage.

Looking forward to playing with these dolls again....I see why they are so loved. Brings back childhood memories of the old paper dolls....Happy times.

Getting messy

It's very late & I am covered in modelling paste, gesso & various colours of misters.
On a whim I decided to do something on plan was to take inspiration from an art journal page, but I ended up going with the flow & doing something random.
As usual I am not posting a finished piece...when do I ever lol.
It would be finished but am deciding on wings....can't seem to get them right.
Anyway here is a sneak peek at the wording....
Have to go get showered & get some sleep now, so until next time.......Catch ya later Special Llama's

A little bit of gorjuss

After buying lots of new crafty goodies I have finally found some time to actually craft!
I have been busy making cards but thats it, so it was nice to do something else.
No pictures to share yet but I will post them as soon as I take them.
Short & sweet today special Llama's.
