Teddy Bears at Craft Your Days Away

One of my favourite challenges is being set this week over at Craft Your Days Away - Teddy Bears. 

I couldn't resist having a go at making a little crochet bear - which was easier to make than  I originally thought it would be.  I've used some glass eyes and I embroidered the nose with some DMC Perle thread.  I am starting to get hooked on crochet - I started last year, teaching myself to make some little flowers, but now I can't put it down!  Crochet is very addictive - be warned!

For this challenge we are being sponsored by Stamp Fairy who are offering a $10 voucher to a lucky winner.  They have some fab teddy digis - pop over to the challenge blog to have a look at some of the other DT samples.  Remember, we are a multi craft challenge site so show us whatever teddy item you've made.

Over the recent Bank Holiday we've been decorating upstairs so my card making supplies have been put away.  All decorating is finally finished now so hopefully I can get a bit of card making done again - I want to try some of the Stamp Fairy images now that I've seen what the DT have made.

Thanks for looking,

Craft Your Days Away - Bingo

Today's the day for our new challenge over at Craft Your Days Away and we are playing Bingo for this challenge.  I have so many cards in stock at the moment that I thought I'd decorate a gift bag for a change using a Tilda image that I already had coloured in my stash.

I've gone for the ribbons, pearls and glitter line.  Pop over to the challenge blog for more details and details of the prize from this week's sponsor - The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

It was a bit dark when I took the picture last night - I'll have to try and upload a better one although I don't think that the weather is due to improve much to bring much decent daylight!

Thanks for looking,

Craft Your Days Away

I've been AWOL for a few weeks as life has just got so busy lately.  Anyway, I'm back with my DT make for Craft Your Days Away - I'm a week and a half late posting but - better late than never I suppose!

Anyway, our current challenge is Red, White and Blue in honour of our Queen's Diamond Jubilee.  I've made a cushion using a kit from Mandy Shaw Designs - just perfect for now!

My Mollie Makes magazine subscription has just arrived and in this month's issue is some free ribbon "Handmade with Love" so I've added a little tag on the back of the cushion.

If you're quick you'll just make it before the challenge closes tomorrow night.  We are being sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts and you could be in with a chance of winning a £10 voucher.

Hope it won't be weeks before I'm back again,
