Unfinished Trinket/Jewellery boxes.

These are the boxes I'm going to hand paint, not sure what want to do with them, wooden hearts will be mounted on them spelling a childs name either round the outside or shaped on the top depending on letters in name really, hopefully I can get a nice smooth finish with the paint I choose to use.

Hand made Candle
Done this candle for sister inlaws birthday, she loved it. Used the penny black clear stamp set, stamped on tissue paper then coloured in with watercoloured sakura pens. Used the heat gun to fix into the candle, then finished it off with a lovely pink ribbon saying happy birthday over and over. Wrapped it in the plastic for flowers and tied it with a little pink ribbon. Love these stamps.

Done this with the glitter girls cd rom, beauty and beasts, not one for using the cd rom's, this was a impusle buy and again wish I hadn't bothered. Its nice tho just not something you could do alot off, uses up too much ink for a start and you have to print the both sides, even if you only want the main image. Such a pitty.

Fathers Day card
Hubby is big motor bike fan, so used decoupage sheet I've had lying for years, HATE cutting them out now. Layered it on a round nestie thought it was perfect size for the die's. The card stock has a shine to it but its hard to fold. Again used the peel offs for my sentiments.

My daughter has a little friend round the corner, its her birthday soon and shes been invited to her party, Brooke choose this card from a few, so I added the flowers from a huge box load of them I found on a good site at very good price. Hope her friend likes it.
The image is from a kind buddy on do crafts, I coloured her in with sakura pens, bit deep colour but Brooke likes it.
Pink Floyd fan:

A good mate is big on Pink Floyd, can never seem to find him a card thats not silly looking or too cute. I try to make his cards as well as others but he is sooooo hard to please.
I found some images I know he will love, so printed them off, layered them with some silver card stock, adding his name at the bottom with some peel offs.
The insert is a little more special, hubby had an idea of finding the band members signitures, found them and added them to word printed them off on just plain a4 paper, turned out quite cool, do hope he likes it.

Wedding bliss

Done this card, using white A4 card stock, peel off bride and groom, adding the little cross at the top then rose at the bottom. Using my computer added there name at the bottom. Find getting it at the centre of the correct side of card a bit of a hit and miss really, it was slight off so had to trim it so looked better. Finished it off with some gold ribbon.
Not really into wedding cards, can never seem to get inspired.
