Friday (my birthday) we went out for a fab lunch quite relaxed and leisurely at the Mediterranean near ecclesall road in sheffield, seems ages ago now. Had lots of fab cards from family and am hoping my birthday lasts a bit longer by recieving some cards from the girls in the craft rak club, but as yet haven't recieved any though I know a couple have said they are on their way, so now got to wait for the postie on monday.
Well I have been crafting but not all cards, and as I have been lax in the posting area not even sure if the challenges I made things for are even still up and running, but I'll show you all anyway.
The first is a card, this is a kanban big card decoupage but I decided that I wouldn't mount it onto a big backing but just keep it as is and just round the corners of the card so there's no white showing, if you know what I mean.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges, presuming they are still running of course.
Auds sentiments-anything goes
Pear tree designs- best wishes
cards for men-decoupage
Everybody art-in the garden
My next little project I decided my craft table could do with a little organising and prettying up. I still have some other things I need to pretty up so you may see some other non card projects over the next few weeks.
This is for my pens etc. I use to have all the stuff you will see in the filled pot in just the large poy before I decorated it. It's actually a cut down asda smart price baby wipes container and as you can guess I could never find what I wanted. In good old blue peter style with toilet roll tubes I came up with this.
I love bright colours so covered all the tubes in lime green paper befor sticking them together with good old pva glue. I then followed the layout sketch fromraise the bar to decorate the main pot, minus the sentiment as I couldn't decide what to put, pens, nicknacks or what as I also have paintbrushes , waterpens, screwdrivers , hammer and glue in there too.Apologies for leaving it off and
