Carrot Gardens

Well school has now officially finished for the Easter holidays and I've got two tired, but very excited boys! Been extremely busy today with one thing and another but just wanted to share the carrot gardens I made for Lewis and Sam which I managed to finish today. I got this idea from Lauren who is one seriously talented lady! When I first saw this on her blog, I knew I just had to have a go. I did have to improvise on some parts because I didn't have all the supplies which she used but I'm still really pleased with the results......and so are my boys! Trouble is, I don't want them to touch them....I think I'll make them eat them last out of all their Easter goodies!!

The items I used were: Blank Egg Boxes and Just Hatched stamp set from Papertrey Ink; Hero Arts Box of Dots stamps; Certainly Celery c.s., Apricot Appeal c.s., Certainly Celery wide grosgrain ribbon, Certainly Celery narrow grosgrain ribbon from Stampin Up, various inkpads from Create & Craft, disposable icing bags, white opaque Stazon, Dovecraft Shimmer chalks and Skittles from Asda!!

I was surprised at how quickly they took to make......the longest part for me was stamping the dots on the box and the bags!

These are the cutest darn things! I love them. I don't think I'd want anyone eating them either. I hope it's ok, but I posted a link to your blog to show people. These are just too cute not to share. :)

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...

...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
