Just a Little Reminder

From my last post you will have seen that I have recently moved house, and I haven't blogged for a very long time.  The main reason, other than time, was that my craft things were packed, but I had been passing my crafting time away with a new craft I've stumbled on called Decopatch.  With my life in boxes I found it very easy to decopatch as it takes very little time and you need very few items.  I have decopatched a Cat, and Home ornament, and a horse.  But it was my sisters birthday, (months ago) and I was strapped for money with the house, so I rang my mum and asked her what she thought of my idea.  My sister works as a receptionist and I was sure that she would be the type of person to have post it notes all over her computer screen and desk, so I came up with this little idea.

I took some basic wooden pegs and decopatched them using, and added my own decorations to them that I thought would be to her taste.  I like this craft as you get to rip up paper and glue haphazardly, there is no need for accuracy or concentration.  Once the glue was dry I used ribbon, buttons and gems in my craft stash and a hot glue gun to secure them to the pegs.

Missing You

I haven't blogged for months, but here is a card I made two weeks ago for one of my friends who is moving away.  This card taught me that I need to get back in the swing of things as I spent way too long making it.  I don't usually make busy cards, however I hope it works well.  She loved the card I hope you like it.
I used bits and pieces I had laying around, as I have just moved house and I haven't had time to get organised yet.  However this this card uses a Gorguss stamp, from Do crafts, and the die is from Spellbinders Nestabilities, Majestic Elements.  The back ground comprises three pieces of paper cut into three squares and I have paper pieced the girls dress.  I dressed up the card with double sided sticky lace, and plain white ribbon, decorated with a pre cut sentiment, Miss you and embellishment flowers.
