Funky Hand Challenge April 2011

Just spent a lovely afternoon making a few boxes and a bag for my neighbour's daughter. I've managed to get her three children interested in crafting and it's one of her daughters birthday at the end of the month. I've bought her some bits and bobs and thought some hand made boxes would finish them off really well. If you like the cylinder box I got the idea from Splitcoast Stampers. They have a brilliant web site which gives you all sorts of resources to craft with. Their templates and instructions are fab.
Anyway, I used Funky Daze (Saturday Shopping) for the stripes. It's one of my favourite CD's. I then used Polka Dots Pink and Light Brown from my free download (when I won last months challenge........ whoopee doo !!!)
Hope you like them as I'm putting them in for this month's Funky Hand challenge.
Thanks for looking xx

Easel Cards

Good morning. What fantastic weather we're having. Hope this isn't our summer!
Had a go at making an Easel Card from a download from cardmaking world and I'm quite pleased on how it's turned out. I quite like cutting out but these are not too complicated. I bought a set of eight designs and can print them off as often as I like. Brilliant for youngsters which I always struggle with. Now I've got the template I'll have a play and see if I can come up with my own designs. Thanks for looking x

Lovely day today

What a fantastic day it is today. I'm washing everything in sight (trying not to think of the ironing) and loving the fact all my doors and windows are open. I've made a 'New Home' card for my daughter to give to her friend which worked out well. I'm going to make a few now but in different colours so I can put them in my box for spares and too sell (if I'm lucky!) I'm trying to make an effort and sell some cards so I can buy the Paint Fusion range from Sheena Douglas. That's my next purchase hopefully. Thanks for looking xx
