Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I have a really broad selection of crafts to share with you today.......
First up is a card that Our Janet has created, it isn't the card I am particularly focusing today though, it is those adorable Pretty Dresses made from a paper doilly, what an absolutely genius idea, I have seen them used many ways including parasols etc but this is the first time I have seen these cute little dresses. they look fairly simple to create, I am hoping Janet may be well enough to pop in soon to tell us all how she created them, the addition of a little ribbon and a few tiny gems makes them look more realistic. Thank you so much for sharing this fab idea with us Janet, I hope and pray you are well enough to join us very soon xxxx
Next up we have some beautiful hand made flowers, these have been made by Angela, who managed to sneak a small box of craft goodies under her seat in the car, I must say you have put them to great use Angela, the flowers are gorgeous, have you stamped them in the centre or is it a smaller die cut flower? inking the edges has given the flowers real definition, making the petal shape stand out, the petals look a little like Hydrangea flowers to me (although I know the colour isn't right), what die or punch did you use ? I hope to get across to see them 'in the flesh' sometime before we leave!!
Thank you so much for sharing them with us xxxx
Last but by no means least is Karen's amazing Basket Of Flowers Cake that she made a few years back for her Hubby's Gran, Karen your cake making skills are just incredible, you could have easily made a living out of making cakes, the piped basket weave effect around the cake is just so neat and the individual hand turned roses with their foliage are just amazing, all different sizes so that the basket is filled perfectly, Karen did say the photo was really old but you can still clearly see the amount of skill needed to perfect this cake, I am so pleased that you kept photos of them all Karen, thank you so much for sharing with us xxxx
That's all for this weeks mixed crafts, thank you so much ladies for sharing your projects with all of us xxxx
We had another lovely beach day yesterday, we all went in the sea together which was great fun, an evening of games after dinner, we are off to a local market this morning, the girls are after some bags for school, I am hoping that we can barter a deal with them....... wish us luck !
Have a lovely weekend ladies,
Don't forget your Challenge cards!!!
Gentle hugs to those of you feeling fragile xxxx
Love and hugs
