Gnome fun !!

Morning guys !!

Been doing some more embroidery using Crafty Ribbons fab silk ribbon !! Also used some of the new crochet edge bias binding !!

The house is made using a Pringles tin , the roof lifts off so I can store bits and bobs inside.

My cute little lady gnome is a dolly peg and I went a bit OTT as usual with loads of flower embroidery on her dress and hat. She has to take her hat off to get inside the house...ha ha

Such a fun project to make and felt is a fab medium to work with !!

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.

I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.

This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue !

Sue our hostess has this fab prize for one lucky winner also !!
I am offering a third prize for one lucky winner.

Happy Sunday guys !!

Well it is super to have a bit of summer as long as it doesn't get too hot !!

Yesterday I had fun making my cute little Crafty Ribbons caravan. It was so relaxing and would make a super stocking filler gift made in kit form for anyone. I'm not parting with mine though, its going to hang on my fabric bag.....
