Little Wooden Bird House

Morning hope you are all well and enjoyed your weekend I took Ellie and Holly in town on Saturday for a girly day shopping and something to eat,then yesterday as it was my birthday we all went for a meal my eldest son,wife and 2 grandsons,my youngest son,fiance and his two daughters-Ellie and Holly,my daughter and her ex hubby(well estranged really as not divorced and we still see him every weekend)-Holly is practically recovered but couldn't eat everything as her mouth started hurting her again--still managed birthday cake though!!!

I have two DT posts today the first one is for A Inky Mess and I finally decorated a little wooden bird house bought from The Works earlier in the year-I used acrylic paints then stamped birds on the roof with Crafty Individuals stamp,Chocolate Baroque little Bee and Polka Doodles little Butterfly from sets.The little birds were cut from a craft mag freebie stamp,and I used Memory Box and Sue Wilson dies-looking back wish I had not put the butterflies and birds on but hey ho done now.

Fairy Tale Unicorn in Pencils

Morning and we have a new ATG challenge at Crafting With Friends sponored by Fabrika Fantasy and I used the image "Fairy-Tale Unicorn" once again but this time coloured with pencils-a first for me-the lines of glamour dust were added because my printer has decided despite head cleaning it is going to leave faint lines!!!I used layered stitch dies from The Works and all papers from stash,the little corrugated cardboard arrow painted with Aztec paint was one of a set from Dutch Doobado,I added a thin DST all round edges of card and pressed glamour dust onto it for more sparkle.No sentiment until I decide who it is for.
Sorry if I am slow getting round to you all but had grandaughter Holly off school all week with abcess on her tooth-really swollen and in pain on antibiotics at the moment.

Back to School with Friends

Morning and this is my 2nd and last DT post today which is for the new ATG/Back To School challenge at Crafty Girlz.I used a pr-coloured image from Mos Digital pencil which was actually bought from Hobby House a couple of years ago.I decided to decorate a note-book bought from Hobbycraft also a couple of years ago-trying to use up my crafty stash.
The elements are cut from Tim Holtz papers which I have had for a good few years-thought it was about time I used them!!!
I distressed all edges/the paper clips are from stash and everything was put on with silicone for extra depth.
