Party Bags!

As I explained in a previous post, I'm slowly catching up with my crafting and postings so thought that as it is the day of Sam's party, would show you the little treat bags I made for the kids. The design of these came from Claudia's blog candy competition, however, I wasn't able to enter it at the time because of my computer dying on me but when I saw her tutorial, knew these would be ideal to take to the party!!

I've used the same Daisy Bucket double sided paper I used for the invitations with the cheeky Changito stamp (coloured with Brushables), Nestabilities, Bazzill c.s., Doodlebug ribbon and MFT sentiment.

Sam had a fantastic day yesterday and was so pleased with his room! so thought I would share a couple of photos with you. The first is of him in his "refurbished" bedroom!

and this is a close up of Mr Nonsense! My friend Lee drew this and then painted it straight on the wall - something I could never do - then I just had to outline it yesterday. Isn't she talented!! We hid this with a poster on Thursday evening and Sam never guessed what was hidden underneath....oh the joys of being a child!!

Finally, this is Sam blowing out his candles on his cake. It was his request that I made a cake with strawberry jam in (his favourite!), however, he's got another cake to take to his party today which looks a bit more exciting than this one!!

Off to start getting organised for our trip to Monkey World! The weather forecast is good so am hoping for a good day!

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.
