A PIECE OF GORJUSS ART!



I JUST LOVE THE GORJUSS GIRLS
WHEN NEW GIRLS ARE ANNOUNCED I GET SO EXCITED AND NOW MY FAVOURITE GIRL IS AVAILABLE TO CRAFT WITH I AM OVER THE MOON!

HERE IS 'DEAR ALICE' SHE IS THE SPITTING IMAGE OF ME AT 16 BUT I HAVE BROWN HAIR NOT PURPLE
I LOVE MUSIC AND I AM ALWAYS LISTENING TO IT ESPECIALLY WHEN I CRAFT.

I PICKED UP A CHEAP PICTURE FRAME I PLAN ON PAINTING IT BLACK AND WHITE STRIPES TO MATCH THEIR SOCKS
I AM THINKING OF DOING A WHOLE COLLECTION OF THE GIRLS BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST TOO CUTE!


THE IMAGE AND PAPERS ARE FROM THE A4 DECOUPAGE KIT
AND THE STAMPED SAYING IS FROM AN OLD COSMO CRICKET SET.

HOPE YOU LIKE IT
HAVE A WONDERFUL CRAFTY DAY

A LITTLE BAG OF CUTENESS



I HAD TO MAKE A QUICK BAG OF SWEETS FOR A FRIENDS SON WHO WAS TAKEN INTO HOSPITAL,
HE LOVES CRAFTING WITH ME AND FELL IN LOVE WITH DOCRAFT'S TATTY DAYDREAMS COLLECTION
THIS IS TATTY'S YOUNGER BROTHER TIMMY!
SO I THOUGHT  THIS WAS PERFECT!
THE DUCK CLIP WHICH I BROUGHT FROM A CHEAP SHOP WAS LEFT OVER FROM MAKING EASTER BASKETS AND MY FRIENDS SON LOVES DUCKS.
WENT TO SEE HIM TODAY AND HE LOVED IT [COULD OF BEEN THE CHOCOLATE INSIDE TOO] HE IS COMING HOME AT THE END OF THE WEEK AND WE HAVE MADE A CRAFTY DATE ALREADY!






HOPE YOU ALL HAD A LOVELY BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND AND MEMORIAL DAY!
THANKS FOR POPPING BY
HAPPY CRAFTING

MIRABELLE



HELLO I'M BACK AGAIN WITH THIS TIME A TRIM-CRAFT COLLECTION MIRABELLE,
I'M TRYING TO USE UP ALL MY OLD COLLECTIONS SO I CAN BUY NEW ONES LOL
I CREATED A CARD BLANK AND THEN USED DECOUPAGE PIECES FROM THE COLLECTION.
THESE CARDS ARE VERY QUICK AND EASY TO DO SO IF YOU NEED A FAST CARD IT'S GREAT TO HAVE THESE ON STANDBY.
AS YOU CAN SEE MY DESK IS A MESS
I DON'T GET TO CRAFT AS MUCH AS I USE TO SO I TRY TO GET LOTS DONE IN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME.





HOPE YOU LIKE IT!
HAPPY CRAFTING
