Pink princess Tilda

Good morning bloggers. I haven't done much crafting recently because I slipped a disk and found it very difficult to sit at my table and make anything. Feeling much better now and yesterday I was able to sit and finish a card. I used one of my favourite princess Tildas and lot's of pink.






Very exciting as the Tour de France will be zooming past where I live today! I will hopefully be back later with some photos.

My mojo has gone walkabout so I thought I would try something other than a card.
I decided to have a go at decorating an mdf pen pot. Not that happy with it so at some point I might take the paper and butterflies off and start again.

Handmade skirts

Good morning bloggers.
1st of May and it is pouring down with rain!
No cards today, instead I have some pretty skirts to show you that I made for my girls.

Multi coloured skulls!

Lined with pink silky fabric

Fabric cost £1.50

Ribbon, button and lace all from my scrap bag.

 These skirts are so quick and easy to make. The one with the multi coloured skulls cost about £4 to make and I still have enough of the fabric to make something else. The skirt with the ballerinas only cost £1.50 as it was an remnant.  My youngest daughter loves the Disney film Frozen, she has asked me to make her a dress like Elsa from the film!  Not sure if my sewing skills are that good!

DT Card for Divas by Design-Let's go to the movies

Good morning bloggers.
I hope you all had a lovely Easter. 
I think I have eaten my body weight in chocolate, and that's a lot of chocolate!
My girls are back to school, so I can hopefully find some time to craft again. 

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Divas by Design
The challenge blog

Our theme this week is Let's go to the movies....so we want to see your movie inspired creations. Please don't forget to let us know what movie you were inspired by.

My movie inspiration is pretty obvious....Cinderella!
My photos are not great, but is has been quite cloudy for the past couple of days.
My image is of course a Saturated Canary digi, and I have used my gorgeous new die that I bought at the Ally Pally craft show. I have to say I was quite disappointed with the show this time. I actually came home with money still in my purse!
