Good morning  blog chums,

as I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was very excited to be asked to join the Craft Mojo design team.

Today is the start of a new challenge on the blog and the theme is  AUTUMN COLOURS . Please pop over and have a look and enter the challenge which runs until the end of this month . There is a £10 prize up for grabs for the winner to spend in the new Craft Mojo on-line shop

I made this little wall hanging for my first design on the team .

I backed some lovely autumn coloured paper onto heavy card stock, then mat and layered some different papers from my stash in shades of orange & green before I added the hand drawn image (which I coloured with Promarkers) to them .
I framed the whole picture with some garden twine which I twisted to form the basis of the tree , before I cut out the little leaves with crinkly scissors from snippets of papers I had left over.

Happy Makings

The Secret Bouquet

Hi Bloggie chums ,

as promised a quick update on the goings on with all things for "The Party".

After the Fathers buttonhole had been made (see previous post ) , it was full steam ahead with the bouquet for the Mother .
 I toyed with the idea of whether it should be a spray or posie type of arrangement , and settled on a posie.  I already had a picture in my head of what I wanted it to look like.
After a visit to the shops for some fabric & lace , and trying to track down some affordable vintage type jewellery for the flower centres,  the creating began and of course with the anniversary celebrating 50 years of marriage the flowers were all made in cream, gold, yellow & ivory.

So without any more waffling from me here is the finished bouquet for my wonderful Mother , just hope she likes it .

It then dawned on me that I would have to put it into a presentation box of some sort , so I set about making something to house it in , and this is what I came up with

 happy makings one and all
