Thank you all for the lovely Birthday wishes, both in Blogland and FB. I had a lovely birthday and a fabulous Indian meal in the evening with Moreen and Damian's, oh and Alistair too. Beautiful gifts, but nothing crafty. And on Monday the beautiful candy I won from Wendy Spanish Crafter arrived, and OMG! What a wonderful prize to receive. There are lots of gorgeous hand made stick pins,tiny book, crochet embellishments, oh I could go on and on,and all encased in a stunning material book with lace and buttons, I am so lucky to have won it and coming when it did, well it was like another birthday gift. Wendy is a hugely talented lady.
Anyway, I've been having a go at creating a canvas,inspired by Jennifer of Crafting Rainbows and you can find Jennifer's blog here. Jennifer also designs many of the samples for Imagination Crafts.
Here's my canvas, and don't laugh please!!,
I have used Starlights to paint the canvas, and then stuck on little bits of the gorgeous Rice Paper, the sun is made with Sparkling Medium, all from Imagination Crafts.
Stamps from Creative Stamping magazine, colored with Derwent pencils, little shells and some sandpaper. I've just made the little birds with a black Pen. If you pop in to Jennifer's blog you'll see the real deal. I did have fun making it though, and can see where I could improve.
Well it's wall to wall footy here, sick of it and it's only the first week. I got a bit of respite this afternoon as I was in sole charge of Milo as Damian wasn't able to get home at lunch time. I think this is how I got chilled as we got awfully wet when out for our walk, and then the back door was opened so that the pup could get into the garden. He is getting so big and strong. I made a cuppa when we got back and the toerag wouldn't let me sit down, every sofa I tried to sit on he got to it first, this went on for a few minutes, of course he thought it was great fun, I gave up and sat on his big cushion, didn't seem to mind that. He is adorable, but I'm so glad that we have a cat.
Thanks for you kind comments on my last post, I love reading them and appreciate your time. Till next time, take care,
