Milly-May' Fima Meraids
Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, what are you all up to this weekend, so exciting to think that you can all start seeing your families from Monday, although this Indian variant is a huge concern. I am due my 2nd vaccination next week, I am looking forward to being fully covered but I am not looking forward to the side effects, thats why we have had to change our visit to Danielle, we were going next Friday and staying until Sunday, but I have my jab friday and couldn't risk being as ill as I was last time while visiting, plus I don't want to take any symptoms to Danielle, as she hasn't been able to have her 2nd vaccination. So we changed the day to this coming Monday.
I think the weather will dictate this weekend's activities! I hope you all manage to relax and enjoy it.
Now let's see what lovely crafts we have today.....
the opening photograph is Milly-May's Mermaids, Cheryl sat and played with Fima clay with Milly-May, she clearly enjoyed it and she has got some serious creative hands, the detail on those mermaids is incredible, look at the hair!! Milly-May please keep Crafting you are naturally gifted and take after your Nan/Grandma when it comes to creativity.
Thank you so much for sharing Milly-May's makes Cheryl XXX
What an absolutely amazing idea this is Cheryl, everyone gets a very special keepsake of Pete. Cheryl's niece Jacqui used Pete's West Ham Polo shirt to create these cute little bears. Such a fantastic idea and a great way of taking one thing and make keepsakes for many. Jacqui is very clever! Thanks so much for sharing this great idea Cheryl XXX

Here’s some ideas of what’s inside the magazine.

More ideas in pastel colours.
Some different ideas using the free gift in this article.
Brushed velvet technique-I think this looks great & am tempted to try this out.
Great idea using your embossing folders & water reactive inks.
I love the inked look this technique produces.
Wrap cards-what stunning cards they make,
Die cut telescopic apertures-what fantastic cards this technique makes. So simple but easy.
Some ideas for male cards-you could use other shapes or designs, whatever you have in your stash.
Ideas using feathers & dream catchers.
More ideas which would be good for men’s cards.
Bright cards using tag dies.
That’s all for this week so
Fantastic review Michele, I love the free gift that you get with the magazine. The inspiring sample cards are lovely too. The Boho Vibes feature appeals to me, I just bought a load of brown card from Pink frog after seeing some lovely cards made with Brown and shades of blue. The cards in this feature really appeal to me. Thank you so much Michele for taking time out of your week to write this review for us XXX
Thats all for today Ladies, I really struggled to get this post written as our Internet went off at around 4pm yesterday, it's 9pm as I finish this and its still not back on. So I want to publish while I have a bit of very rare mobile signal !!
Love and hugs to all of you,
