#101 Totally Papercrafts - Pearls and Lace

Sorry I know I have been a bad poster - bit of a family crisis at the moment - hope to get better with postings soon.
Fridays challenge over at Totally Papercrafts is Lace and Pearls chosen by the lovely Dora. Soooooooooo sorry - late with my posting ladies - mind elsewhere................
Used this fab Hanglar and Stanglar image.and so love this Laura Ashley Paper
Added my usual glitter - but love the stickles used on her cardie - makes it look like mohair wool - it is called cotton candy -good one to purchase...
Made some flowers and added pearl hearts.
Day off today - but off early as off to hospital with my sister...
Take care

#100 Totally Papercrafts Challenge-Make yr own flowers

Friday - means another challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and this week the fabby Lols has chosen the theme - Make your own I decided to come out of my comfort zone and make a plaque...
Thought this sentiment sort of sums me up at the moment...crackled the background and it sort of worked
Love this sentiment
And then made this flower out of card stock stamped it- inked it - glossed and added only a weeny bit of glitter...popped a brad in the middle...hey presto.....
Hung the finished article in my tiny craft area....
So come on pop by to Totally Papercrafts - see my other fab teamies creations and join in with a chance to win a fab prize from our sponsor this week.
Take care

Monday - here again

Well Monday is here...again!!!!...How was your weekend..mine was chaotic.....Emily had problems with her back muscle...think this is what cause the hamstring injury last year resulting in not running in competitions for nearly a hence her times this weekend have been shocking...but as I said to her..she has been out for nearly a year - needs to build things back....she needs to sort out her she has been on the wii fit to see if that helps...
On to today's posting
Wow these were quick and inexpensive to make...made these 3 paper pads...pencils cost 20p each, and paper them.....a bit of glue and some flowers later - 3 shopping pads....what do you think?

Morning - wow sooooo busy at work - no time to play...Did quickly manage to make this.....from a cotton wool bud holder
Was going to use it for some Copics - but then realised I would need quite a few of them for all my Copics - so Emily has pinched it for in her room and she has put some make up bits in it...
Hope you can see it - not the best of pictures - but you get the idea - recycle.
Thanks for popping by

Made this card - I really love this image....Fab Mo Manning image if you did not know...
