Here is another bookmark I have made for Anna1970's challenge over on the CSF I used some HOTP papers and images from my greeting cards cd, then I printed the little sentiments on white paper and cut them the shape of a speech bubble. I then added a tassel made by me, The first one is the front and the second one the back.
Today I have made four birthday cards for my friend who I make for. As I am going into hospital at the end of July I thought I had better get my skates on and start getting all my June, July and August stuff done beforehand. I am having an op on my right hand so you can see why. I will be in pot for approx fours weeks. Therefore no crafting for a while afterwards. I have used some Kanban card and images, also a Kanban appature decoupage card kit, Kate Greenaway decoupage which I got from Joanna Sheen, a lady image I got from the nec not sure who makes them.
This first picure is of the card and bookmark I did for last months swap. I forgot to upload it to my blog
Here are the three mini cushions I have done for this months variety swap on Crafting Corner. I have used some lovely Glitterati pearlised patterened papers I got from the NEC. I have added flowers on two and a teddybear topper and a Anitas dimension butterfly topper on the last one.
This week is the letter L on Alphabet Challenge. I have done L is for Love, Letters and Lilac. I used lilac card and added a topper of a letter envelope and apicture of a loving couple. I then added a small tag saying love letters and coloured it lilac with an ink pad.
This weeks letter on the Alphabet Challenge is J. I was a bit stumped with this one then I had an idea. I got a flat canvas and covered it with two pieces of wallpaper which I had added some pale green and lemon ink to. I then spritzed the paper with some moonglows scintilating silver to give it a shiney effect. I then added a gold ribbon around the top and a verse by Constance Parker Graham printed on pale green paper which I distressed aroud the edges. I then added a flower with a gold brad. Finally I added some green and pearl jewels down one side. My J is for Just messing about and Jewels.
I am married to Tom we have five great kids. I have done many crafts over the years but am now addicted to papercrafting. I love to try out different techniques.
