Some Good News !

No card today but I would like to share with you some good news...
Do you remember, a year ago...



It was the wedding of my Lovely Daughter Anne to the Adorable Francois... Well, a year later I can announce it to the whole world : I'm going to be a Grandma ! Yeah !!! Although I was expecting it, I was very moved when my daughter told me... Anne has been very poorly for two months now but hopefully things will improve soon... But I must say that I still can't believe that my baby is having a baby !!!

Have a lovely day ! And Happy Crafting !

A Strawberry Pixie

I can't remember the last time I did some colouring... I'm not good at it but I wanted something different from the vintage things I have been making lately... So I took my Promarkers and my Prismacolors pencils out and here is what I made...

A Kitty in a Bonnet...

The challenge with As You like it is  "Favourite Animal and Why"... Well for me it has to be cats ! Although they might be aloof, cats have their own way to show their affection and they can feel when you are down... But don't get a cat if you want to be obeyed... As they say "Cats don't have owners, only staff !"... So here is what I have made, it's a sort of collage for the cover of a post-it holder, using different bits from my stash... The image is from ArtChix Studio and the sentiments are from Lisa's Altered Art.



My post-it-holder will also enter the challenge "Animal Antics" with Crafty Calendar.

Happy Crafting !

Fun in the Sun... and an ATC...

Fun in the sun.... Well maybe not just yet in the UK but one can dream, can't they ?
I bought a big pack of memo pads from the shop where everything is £1 and I had to make little covers for them... So here is the first one...



Recipe : Papers from Studio Light - Image and Sentiment from Lisa's Altered Art - Little House from Artchix Studio - Shells : Dies from Marianne Design - Ribbon from The Range.

My little cover will enter the challenge "Vintage Red" with LunaGirl MoonBeams and the challenge with Sketch Saturday. Here is their sketch... (I rotated it for my cover)

Before I started my blog I used to make a lot of ATC's (I used to swap them with my dear sister Annie...). I really enjoyed making this one, although I struggled a bit : there wasn't a lot of space for all the embellies I like to use on my projects !



Recipe : Paper from Prima - Image and embellishments from Graphic 45 - The bow was made with gauze from the first help kit ! I dyed it in tea... The ATC stands on a little wooden salt box I bought from Calico Crafts. I painted it with Gesso and added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

My ATC will enter the challenge "Love is in the Air" with Rhedd and Rosie and "Love is all Around" with Deep Ocean Challenge.

Happy Crafting !
