I think my blog will be having a christmas break now December is here! As Im making christmas cards and prezzie's I wont be posting any makes on here for a while (unless I get chance to make some more butterflies!). Im currently working six days a week as you can see, every Sunday up until christmas I'm one of santas little helpers! (thanks heavens for online shopping LOL)
It's Mags' birthday today so I can safely show you what I made for her. It's a bamboo tile pendant. Thanks to Lottie who provided me with the inspiration. It's simply a bamboo tile that I painted with purple H20's, then stuck a pic of a geisha girl on, varnished the whole thing. waited for it to dry then glossy accented the front so that it looked like glass! I hope you like it Mags!

I made this for my friends birthday. It's made using a stamp from Third Coast Stampers (who I love). Huge thanks to Paula who first put me on to these because I saw her gorgeous card using this stamp in Craft Stamper magazine! I stamped the image in Stazon then used acrylic paints to build up dimension. The shell's were from a Hawaiian lay that I was given on my honeymoon (hey, there's no room for sentimentality in crafting LOL) I am pretty pleased with the result if I do say so myself. It actually turned out more or less to how I pictured it in my head :o)
