Guinea Pigs & Knitted Heart

Another guinea pig card using the Furry Friends CD from Joanna Sheen.

The sentiment is a Polkadoodles stamp, the flowers are punched out and scrunched with a brad added to the centres.

I knitted this heart using aran wool, added beads round the edge and garden twine to hang it.

Silver Cat Glasses Chain & Another Cheeky Monkey

I made this glasses chain using silver and grey glass cat beads, silver bugle beads and glass faceted beads.

And a cheeky monkey card made using the Tea Time Surprise CD from Fee J Designs.

All papers and images are from the CD, with the addition of gold mirror card, brads, ribbon, glitter, sticky gems and computer printed wording.

I'd like to enter this in this week's Crafty Creations challenge, who want to see Your Inner Animal.

Dog Birthday Card & Crocheted Blanket

Another card using the Furry Friends CD from Joanna Sheen.

I just added some sticky gems, tartan bow and the sentiment is a stamp that came with a magazine.

And a blanket I crocheted, using Stylecraft Special double knitting yarn.
