Its Monday again!!! Yeah!!! Unlike a lot of people I love Mondays as I work a back to front week, I work Friday,Saturday,Monday so to me Monday teatime is like a Friday teatime to most others!!!! No work again until Friday!!
Anyway made a few cards yesterday morning, as before I have left sentiments off lots of them until I decide what type of cards I need for my Christmas sale
Dovecraft backing paper, good old Mr Frosty (again), ribbon from Ben Madigan and Daughter sentiment from Craftwork Cards, stickled with Star Dust
A different Mr Frosty image with Dovecraft paper, card blank from Craftwork Cards and ribbon as before
Penny Black stamped image (thanks to Michelle S) can’t remember where the paper is from (its last years!), brown organza ribbon
Penny Black snowman from Michelle S, ribbon is Papermania and lilac pearlescent card with CUttlebug embossing.
Now for something a bit different which has put my crafting skills to the test. My eldest son, in Year 4 has got a Roman themed day at school tomorrow and they have to dress up (thanks teachers!) in a Roman style costume. He is wearing a white robe which I have sewn myself and trimmed with ribbon, with a cloak and belt, sandals and a sword.
But I am most impressed with the leaf headdress I made him this afternoon. I made a circle of twisted craft wire and then pulled some leaves from our overgrown laurel bush (knew it would come in handy one day!) and then I added wire to each one individually and then twisted them onto the circular headband.
I’ll post a piccie of him in his full outfit tomorrow!!
