thursdays craft playing

Lil' Feathered Owl......the lovely Neasa had found a tutorial by RoxyCar on YouTube showing how to make these, I just couldnt resist!  now I am happily hooked! :)  thank you Neasa!!!

had a play with some corregated cardboard, acrylic paint, embossing powder and mica powders and these happened.......finished off with a brad...they were soooooooooo quick too!!!!!!!! going to make a batch load of these when I get time in different colours!

taa daa!!!!!!!!!...................I finally finished the cover on my sketch book! has only been sitting on my desk since before christmas screaming at me to cover it, poor thing!! So I used a plain cream coloured cotton (dont know what the correct term for this fabric is......but it was cheap as chips!) the polka dot green fabric is remnant from one of my daughters old tshirts, lace is from my stash, and felt flower is from fancy pants, I stamped with distress ink my ART letters and then went over them to define them with some brown thread on my sewing machine, and as you can I see I was getting carried away with the sewing machine cos I made the flower stalk and leaves too!

 and I finally figured out what HTML code I needed to create the new side bar on the left hand side of my blog, something I dont want to try again, well not for a while anyway! I was dizzy going through it all on blogger LOL!!!! but thankfully it worked first time around, thank god, and I am delighted with it! easily pleased eh!

anywayI have to go as I have a date with a hoover, mop & bucket before I have to meet mr washing machine again at lunch time so I have to get cracking, I hope you all have a lovely craft filled fun weekend, hugs xx
