I thought I have a go at making feathers

I have a Wall hanging project in mind where I am doing a tall house shape, adding  a bird cage, some birds, glitter,  feathers  tree branches, flowers and musical notes. I found some music sheets in a bag of goodies I was given by a friend, the music was entitled Sunrise Serenade, it made me think of birds and there morning song,  so I decided to make the feathers out of the music sheets, these feather will go on my finished wall hanging

Altered Ikea coat hanger

I have altered this coat hanger, lol in green I think maybe a bit too much green but never mind the idea is that I can hang a LO or piece of art from it in my craft room I will be able to change it whenever I want. They could be uses in any room you could hang a piece of needlework or anything from them even a nice tea towel in kitchen

Rosettes we made in crop

I was amazed how easy these rosettes were to make we made them in two different ways one using a circle punch any circle punch will do, the other using apiece of 12x12 paper a strip say 12x 2 and you can leave a plain edge, do with decorative scissors or use a punch to do the decorative edge

The Card I made for my husband for Our Anniversary

Its was my husband and I anniversary yesterday, here,s the card I made him

Its an 8x8 card not the best photo I must admit will try to take a clearer one 

A few days back I finished some decoupaged toppers for card I not made cards out of them yet, watch this space for the cards
 Some time back during one of my charity shops searches I found a clock which unfortunately I did not take a before photo of, It was a modern picture inside I got it with the view to altering it, and finally during last week got round to it, My friend has recently has decorated her craft room in purples so I went with that as my main colour as I was doing it for her I hope she likes it

Men's Cards are always hard to make

At a craft demo I recently attended,  the lady demonstrating showed us how to make a little fold out card from a piece of 12x6 inch paper then add a 3inch strip, some ribbon and embellishments and your good to go. I also added some brads and extra ribbon and hey presto a birthday card for my friend's husband was born ...

This little card could be adapted to fit any season or occasion, on the next one I make I will add a little tag to the left hand side to write the message on, but for a first attempt at a little folded card I was quite pleased with the results 

I also had to make a get well card (thanks Sue for the get well soon peel offs) I used the free papers form Docrafts Creativity mag to make the card My friend loves cats she has Nine of them
