Black and White Cat

Hello everyone! I'm thrilled to announce I'm part of a DT on a new challenge blog called Unicorn that launches on 1st September. We're a monthly challenge for all crafters. We will be having a GD call out for the whole of June so please come on over to Unicorn, grab our badge and become a follower to be kept up to date. You can also see what the rest of the very talented  DT have been making.  The DT have been asked to introduce themselves and their work so I've made a card to show the sort of cards I like to make.

 Here's a card I've made for my Nan's birthday.  She'll be 93 this year, still lives in her own home and is sharp as a tack.  I don't get to see her often as she doesn't live locally unfortunately.  She used to have a black and white cat so when I saw this kit I thought of her straight away.  Isn't he cute with his little bow and butterfly!

I've used some pale blue card and flowery papers from my Docraft Capsule Collection pack and some sticky flower gems.  I coloured a peel off sentiment with a pro marker.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Button Tree

Hello everyone, I'm trying something new today - Clean and Simple.

This isn't a technique I've had a lot of practice with   I've made a Christmas card using buttons and ribbon.

I made a tree shape from various sizes of green buttons and finished with a ribbon with a sentiment printed on it. I drew a trunk with a promarker. I'm quite pleased with the result.

Winter Reindeer - Finished!

Hello everyone, exciting news - I have finished my reindeer!  

It has taken me a year to do, but I didn't really touch it between September and December as I was making Christmas cards.  I am going to make it into a cushion evetually.  Might need my Mother-in-Law's help with that as I'm not sure how to go about it.  

Now on to the next project - Bamboo Fan.  I have already sorted my threads and copied the chart so I can mark it off as I go.  I might make a start tonight.  The sooner I get it done the sooner I can start Treasure Hunt Bookshelf.  I have ordered my material for that already!

I do have another project to complete before July, I am making a small wedding sampler for my Husband's cousin to give as a gift at a wedding she is going to.  I'm waiting for the fabric to arrive for that and I need to modify the chart I'm using. 

Thanks for visiting and see you all soon!
