Quickie card...

Good afternoon to all, just had to share this before it goes to a friends hubby, I think it's the quickest card ever....well, as you'll see there really isn't much to it, but I am happy how it turned out, I do so have the 'Man card syndrome'....lol.. SEE...wavy die from ndesigns, gorgeous leather look paper from Urban Style pad, waxed cord and clock from LLC and stamp from an old-ish set I had stashed...it took more time to decide on the stamp...ha ha...and as you can see it's stood on the matching envelope. That's it for now, I have a really list of stuff piling up to show, but we will soon be on our summer break so may try and save it for then.... Big thank you for your visit, take care see you soon..

Gift for a friend...

Hi everyone, I hope your all fine and enjoying the sun again... I made this last week and sent it to a friend of mine, the last one I made her was wearing abit thin so hope she liked this... I did abit of powertex mixed media on the lid, I know she likes that sort of design and I have fun making them...as you may have noticed... The box is covered in wallpaper, then the canvas was loaded with  flower, netting powertex balls,a chippie sign that I picked up on eBay and metal plates which I split into two,and flat back string pearls and the name plate is from hobbyhouse I think...long time sat in a jar... then all painted with Rustin's hessian chalk paint and finally polished off with various deco art  cream.. That's about it again, I am off to see if any challenges for this, thanks so much for popping in, see you soon...
