Angelic Musing

Today I wanted to show you what I have made using one of Little Musings New Rubber Stamps, they are beautiful and although I like to dress my cards I find these Angels speak for themeselves so I dont need to pop lots of embellishments and papers on if I dont want to.
The image has been coloured with Pro markers and then distress inks have been used around the card and the image which has been cut out using nessties.
The sentiment was created on the computer and then I added a bit of distress ink to the edges so it didn't stand out too bright and white on the card.

If you would like the chance to win one of Sj's stamps then please pop over to her blog HERE and check out her give away for this week.  You really wouldnt want to miss out on the oppertunity of owning one of these they are so special!
Catch you all over the weekend with Craft your Days Aways next challenge!

Needle Felting and Fabulous finds Friday

Afternoon all its glorious here, but I feel I have had enough of the sun for one day, we have been to the park and spent most of the day playing so time for some out of sun time.

I thought I would share with you my compeleted needle felted Guinea Pig and some fab finds for this week so here we go.

Here is my compeletd needle felted guinea pig now with eyes and piggy lips!

Outside enjoying this lovely weather, although he looks quite big he is rather small.  He is about 1inch long and 1/2 inch wide and very cute!

Now on to this week's fabby finds

I had a little wander down to Marks and Sparks for some chocolate and biscuits and came across their Tins of shortbread to celebrate Wills and Kates wedding.  One tin had bunting on and there is a more traditional tin and then there was this one.
They are 4.99 each and they have petticoat shortbread inside so well worth the pennies!

Then my second find for this week are these, well I have had my eye on them for a while and now the sun is out I feel its ok to purchase them and banish my knee high boots to the back of the cupboard.
 Arent they cute?  They are so comfy!  And for £6 from Tesco they are a bargain and very Kath kidston!  They also have beige ones with flowers on!

I shall be back again soon dont forget to look at my previous post if you want to get your hands on some gorgeous vintage sewing digi stamps from little musings!

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers day to everyone I do hope you have had a fab day, I was treated to breakfast in bed, then cards and pressies including a dvd and chocolate, hubby cooked Sunday lunch for me and my mum (dad and kids too) he did amazingly well and I have a clean kitchen too!!!  I have been well and truely pampered.

On friday I had a bit of a treat, at hubby's work they were holding a craft show for knitters, stitchers and a few other crafts inbetween.  Hubby gave me some premothers day pocket money and off I went.  I spent a whole 2 hours browsing the stalls and chatting about needle felting and wet felting.  I watched a few demos and generally had a good ol morning with out kids nagging me or hubby moaning, it was bliss!!!  
So what did I return with?  
Here is a piccy

The stamps you can see are the wonderful new stamps from Little Musings that arrived on my doorstep the same day, you can get your hands on some over at little Musings  they are stunning and bigger than I imagined from looking at pictures which is brilliant!  

I have started needle felting a guinea pig, I think I have finished my first attempt and will have another go but here he is pre eyes and mouth.
The lady I met who sold the wool and needles was lovely and so very helpful, I also learnt a lot about her in the half hour we were stood chatting lol  The wool is from her own goats and she has lots of pictures of them they are gorgeous!

Right time to go and sort the children out before they go to bed, can you believe another weekend has passed already!  Catch you all next week with some more news and crafts to show.

Thanks so much for popping by!
