lucy's wallet....




Lucy never ceases to amaze me , well both of my girls really! came home the other night and she had decided to make herself a wallet. an hour later and she had made it.
how cool is this!! she was lucky enough to score some canvas that the fashion art students had down on their tables for screen painting and used that.
no pattern , just copied her wallet and whacked it together, in typical lucy style!
she has orders for 3 of them now.....

i made this card for a friend , id been looking at those paper flowers the scrapbookers are using and thought id have a go at making one .
it turned out ok, but wouldve been better with more layers i think.
i love black and white plus one, it always works.



couple of atc i made for a tissue background swap......



i used twinklings for the background and some gold and bronze paint just lightly brushed on . the asian ribbon was bit thick so i freehand scalloped it! The stars were silver but painted ok with alcohol inks.



i was getting depressed with all the grey and cold weather we have been having lately and decided to revamp my blog. its a bit more cheery although i must get lucy onto a new header. if only the house was as easy to change too......

Thanks for all your comments too, i am having trouble posting comments at the moment, think our computer needs a bit of an overhaul......xoxoxoxoxox

You've been busy Jen! Lovely creations! I agree about getting the house in order as easily as things in blogland....if only!
