Anything But A Card

Hello Lovey peeps

We have an exciting challenge for you this week over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges. So put away your card-making gear and get ready to make.........


Anything But A Card
(yes we want to see your crafty creations just NO CARDS
you can sew, knit, crochet, clay, paper-mache.....so go wild)

I can honestly say I have been sewing my heart out over the last 6wks. But I haven't made anything for myself or family, so I decided to take a little time to make something special for someone special.

I whipped up this little top for my granddaughter

The adorable love-heart fabric I picked up whilst out on a girly day with my friend Dawn, I rediscovered it in my stash two days ago and instantly knew who I wanted to use it for.

We all know how messy little ones can be so I used the darker jade-coloured fabric for the upper section. But to add a little bit of gentleness to such a strong colour I picked out the peachy pink from the centre of the love-hearts to edge the armholes and bottom.

The most unusual thing about this is I used a pattern with making major adjustments....YES....No major adjustments!!!!.......Menopause I reckon......πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Pop over tho see what other makes our wonderful design team have created.

I would also like to give a big shout out to the adorable little shop where I got this fabric "The Corner Patch" in Eccleshall. It is only a tiny shop but friendly and welcoming.

Back soon with more sharing

Christmas in Spring

Hello all,

It might be the end of April but we at Fab'n'Funky challenges are getting ready for that time of year,

Christmas
(We want to see all your christmassy creations)

I used a Woodware stamp - Bubble Christmas Tree and a sentiment from WMS (I miss waltzing mouse stamps)
It's quite difficult to see on this photo but I used a Sakura sparkle gelly roll pen (green) for all the bubbles
Layers are a nice way of adding a little bit of depth and I used a black layer to tie in with the black on the tree image and the sentiment.
I toned down and simplified this card by using green glitter-card from my stash to make the background pop. I have basically tried to make it as masculine as possible. One of our friends is determined to stay a single man...😁

Please pop over and give our lovely team some well earned love

Back soon

Spots or Dots

Quick apology, this should have gone live last week

Hello all
We have a dotty spotty dilemma over at Fab'n'Funky challenges this week.

We want to see all your
Spotty or Dotty projects 

Here is my little bit of simple inspiration
I have used multiple layers of spotty paper to create a vibrant background. This also allows my flowers to pop, giving the card more depth.
A simple elegant sentiment to finish.

Remember to pop over and leave our lovely design team some well deserved good vibes.

Back Soon

New Arrival

A very good morning to you all,

I just wanted to share some good news.
3 weeks ago my eldest daughter gave birth to our first grandchild, a gorgeous little nosy bug.
We were rather concerned at first because our daughter developed an infection after giving birth but with quick admin of antibiotics she was better after a few days.

And here is our newest family member
Caitlyn with her Totoro toy Nanna made

She has become very nosy already, so I'm sure she is going to be heaps of fun. I've already told her she can climb my apple tree all she wants (I can quickly sew her a new dress if she rips what she's wearing πŸ˜‰).
I've already made her one dress with matching pants and bootees. But that is for another blog post.

Back soon with more sharing

Hugs & Happy Thoughts
Buffy xx
(maybe that should be Nanna Buffy)
