Time for Tea ...........


Hi all and happy Friday evening to you!  Well the weather has been a bit rubbish here in Norfolk today.  I'm telling myself that it is saving the good weather for when I go away to Cornwall!  Fingers crossed lol!

Anyway onto my make for today.  I finally got round to do some sewing and made a picture to go in my kitchen.   I used a Debbie Shore fabric die for the teapot which is really good as you can 6 layers at a time so I have more teapots all ready cut out.  I also used a normal die to cut the bunting which did just 1 layer of fabric but cut nice rounded edge bunting!   I hand embroidered the Time for Tea.   I'm really pleased with how this turned out.  I also made some cupcake pictures to go along with this one but I will show you them another day!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Heart Room Plaque ..............


Hi all and happy Saturday to you!  I have another gift to share with you today that I made for one of Grace's friend's whose party she went to recently.  As her friend has an unusual name I thought she might not have anything like this and her mum was very pleased as she said they can never find anything with her Daughter's name on.   

I used an mdf heart for the base and covered it 2 layers of paper from Lili of the Valley.  I painted the edges in cream paint and distressed the edges of the inner heart.   The flowers are from the ribbon girl and I added some paint to the centre of them and sprinkled glitter on whilst it was still wet so the glitter then sticks nicely to the inside.   The leaf is a Joy die and one of my favourites at the moment, I love all the detail on it! 

I hope you have a nice Saturday planned.  Me and Grace are off to the village hall this morning as they have a Queens Birthday celebrate and there are craft stalls and cream teas so hopefully that will nice and then I'm off to a workshop at my local craft shop Sprinkle Twinkle this afternoon. 

Thanks for stopping by.
