So here goes.....
Michele's Magazine Review
Thank you so much Michele for a bumper magazine review, I have the first one and the papers are stunning!! I am very grateful Michele, thanks again.
Karen sent me these adorable miniature Doll clothes to share with all of you, I have to say I didn't really notice how tiny they were when I first looked, then I noticed the pound coin! How anyone can knit on that small a scale and follow a pattern absolutely blows my mind! Karen said the socks are so tiny that they are about the size of her smallest finger nail. These ladies must have amazing eyesight.
Here is Karen's explanation:
"Here’s something a friend received for Secret Santa from a fellow crafter They both belong to miniaturist club She said you can show if you’d like The items are socks pants hat and dress They are “tied” onto the dolls for doll’s houses They are made using flower thread and the knitting needles used are like piano wire"
Thank you so much Karen for sharing this incredible work of art, I would love to see the dolls dressed in this outfit.
Janet did some more Watercolouring this week and look at this stunning stamped image she has coloured, it's incredible Janet, the colours are gorgeous, you have achieved some great shading too, framing the image really does enhance it, I can see this fast becoming your favourite medium, you are so multi talented !!
Thank you so much for sharing.
Brenda saw a cart on the 'Art of Craft' website and she was so inspired she thought she would buy the products to make it, I have to say that I love those dies, Brenda said that the Red card is so Red that it glows. I can wait to see your recreation of the card Brenda.
The rest of Brenda's shopping was from the week before, like me Brenda fell in love with the 'Remarkable You' stamp set, so useful for many occasions including the hardest cards we are asked to make.. Sympathy cards.
Brenda also bought some Brusho's and watercolour card, which meant that she could choose a FREE stamp set as it's Sale-A-Bration, so she chose the stunning 'Heartfelt Blooms', such a gorgeous stamp, particularly as it's Free!!
Thank you so much for both shopping on my Website and for sharing your crafty buys! I am as always hugely grateful.
Pat went to a new craft group this week in Abingdon, this Craft group are all ladies that use the Clarity 'Groovi' system, I think this group is a fantastic idea Pat as it will get you using your Groovi more and you will also gain confidence. Pat created the card above at this week's meeting, which is a huge achievement, it's so lovely to see you start a project and finish it and make it into a card Pat, you will be an expert in no time! Your card is stunning, thank you so much for sharing it with us Pat
Danielle took some of the Black and White 'Petal Palette' Designer series paper and coloured selected areas with the new 'Stampin'Up! 'Stamp and Blends', I love the shading you have achieved For Dannii, your colouring is gorgeous, Such a clever idea to use sections of the detailed papers, mounted onto a black background to make them pop and then popped onto a card, they really do work my lovely, thank you for allowing me to share your work.
Ladies thank you all so much for sharing your shopping and crafts this week, I really do appreciate your input, it makes the blog so much more interesting.
Have a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all,
