And now for something completely different.........

These are for June's variety swap on Crafting Corner hosted by Ju. Thought I'd push on and do them as this is my last day off for a fortnight. I've made 3 cushions, all filled with lavender (so of course now my hands stink LOL) I cut out the shapes then sewed them together (what a labour of love that was!) I hope my swappe likes them!!

Altered peg

Sam is hosting an altered peg swap on the Lots to Do forum so here is mine!! I havent got time at the mo for anying grand or interesting so Im afraid it's just a bit of decorated grunge paper!! i was planning to do 2 but again, I havent had the time nor will get the time!!! It's this bloomin' working for a living lark, it's just no good LOL
Thanks for looking


These domino's are for a swap hosted by Ju on Crafting Corner. So I TOTALLY forgot about this swap till Ju reminded me the other day (sorry Ju!) It actually finished on the 31st May!!! I used alcohol inks to colour the dominos then stamped on them using black stazon. I glazed them using UTEE in my melt pot then popped them in the post first class LOL

Thanks for looking.

Stampboard Magnet

This is for a swap hosted by Loulabelle on UKStampers. I was totally inspired my Ang's fabulous magnet so used some of my smaller pieces of stampboard adn glued them to a piece of mountboard. I then used Basic Grey and Paperartsy stamps to creat the magnet. The flower is made from grungepaper. Finally, I glazed the whole thing using my meltpot which gives it a ceramic tile kinda look.
Thanks for looking!

Birthday card

So I've been trying to improve my card making by co-ordinating my colours. Im not colour blind BTW, just have no idea what matches! So, to help me I've been using Stampin Up card as it all co-ordinates LOL I made this card for Caz's birthday at the end of the month. (Dont worry, she's on hols so wont see this!) It's using a Miss Anya image.
As it's purple I can also enter it in Crafty Creations challenge 19 as it calls for purple to be incorporated!! Yay

Card and bookmark

These are for May's Crafting Corner variety swap. The idea was that you made a card and a bookmark. The bookmark was a corner of a sealed down envelope. Both must have matching elements. My swapee was Margaret
