Bookworm

This is a Pollycraft image teamed with old Kanban papers and a Hunkydory sentiment.  The crocheted lace and flower are from my stash and the charm is part of a broken necklace.

Creative Fingers Challenge – anything but a card

And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.

Ezekiel 33:32

Welcome to another post for Creative Fingers.  This week’s challenge is anything but a card and I have made a gift bag using this delightful image from Art by Miran.  I bought the kraft bag from The Hobby House and the butterfly papers were free with a magazine.  I have used a new Spellbinders die called the butterfly tree and the sentiment was bought in the same set. The pink cord is upcycled from an old gift bag (I can’t bin them without removing the handles and trims)  and one piece is used with the Hunkydory tag and the other is not fixed so that it could be tied to close the bag when filled.

Upcycled jar

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I have used Polkadoodles Sugar Birdie in Serif Craft Artist to produce the two labels to decorate my jars.  Some of the elements were recoloured in orange to match my kitchen and I made up a little poem that was typed onto a semi-transparent white elipse so that it could be read against the decorative background; this is why some of the design appears faded.  I just love mushrooms and toadstools and this is one of the things that first attracted me to Polkadoodles!

Although the poem is aimed at my children, but ‘just take one’?  That’s a good post-Christmas message for me too!

Forever Friends card and gift box

Looking through this weekend’s challenges I got the idea for this card.  I needed to make a card for my friend’s birthday and had no idea what to buy as a small gift. IMAG2253-1 IMAG2248-1 I am currently using up old stash and this is from Docrafts’ Forever Friends Black and Gold kit.  I made the decoupage card first, and added some Papermania flowers.

IMAG2245     IMAG2242     IMAG2244

I had the box with some socks in for Christmas and never like to bin a sturdy box so covered all the logos and writing and decorated it to match the card.  I filled the box with truffles in paper cases.  I loved the outcome of this project – hope you do too!

The project is to be entered into the following challenges:
