Had my sister Gillian up to stay at the weekend and then her daughter, the lovely Emma came up from Manchester to join her for a couple of days. We were looking at potential care homes for our Mum who is suffering from Alzheimer's and have found a lovely one only a few minutes away from my home so are keeping all fingers and toes crossed that we can get her a place there. Anyway while Gillian was here we had a shot at making some sock toys from a book I had borrowed from the library - these are the results:
Gillian made the Winking Bunny and I did the little Pink Piggy and when Gillian and Emma went back to their respective homes on Wednesday I made the Lucky Cat, I'm sure there will be more to follow very soon - it's quite addictive - I'll be looking for interesting socks whenever I'm shopping now!
After work today I had to make my DT card for the new Scrap the Art challenge. This time our inspiration comes from this photograph by Susan Weller "One-A still life"
My card is a very simple design using an image from Lavinia Stamps, I coloured the background with Distress Inks and spritzed the card with water mixed with Pearl Pigments from Blonde Moments, I used Stickles and a flat-backed gem for a bit of bling. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.
