Knitted Wire Bracelet

I made this bracelet using a kit from The Crazy Wire Company.

Really easy and fun to make, takes ages to thread on all the beads, but worth it in the end :-)

Autumn Crow & Spring Frogs

I made this card using Autumn Crow by Meljen's Designs.

The papers I used are from Pink Petticoat, their Autumn Blossom collection.

I coloured the image with pencils, and added buttons, sticky gems, scrunched up flower, garden string and some hand stitching.

And some pictures from our pond, we have loads of frogs in our garden and this week some frogspawn appeared, a sign that spring has arrived :-)

Polkadoodles Challenge & Cross Stitch Dog

The challenge at Polkadoodles this week is to use a stamp, two ribbons and a charm.

The birds stamp is Crafty Individuals, leafy backing paper from Crafter's Companion Flower Fairies CD, satin and organza ribbon from my stash, scrunched up flowers and bird charm with tiny seed beads.

This one I made from a pattern from Cross Stitcher magazine, stitched onto 28 count linen, with beads sewn on for nose and eye.
