Age Cards....not done those for a while

I have spent a very enjoyable few days looking at fashions, nothing new there then but this had a purpose.  I needed to see the fashion from 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80 years ago for a new set of cards I wanted to make. 

I'm still getting over the fact anyone who is 40 this year was born in 1972!

I've also used some of the images in general Happy Birthday cards as they are so lovely.

Aren't these cute?........

Yesterday I made up some travel tissue cases that I have wanted to try for a while now.  They are so pretty and I can see myself making up quite a few!

Liberty print

Liberty Hello Kitty

I think they are lovely and a great way to use up those valuable scraps.

Vintage Vogue Pattern

While I was supposed to be selling my own wares last weekend I chanced upon this fabulous Vogue dress pattern, it just had to be bought!  I have already made and sold several cards showing it and the pattern itself is now laid out for me to make a dress.....

I think it will be the red one in the middle.  Love this pattern!

Bring out the bunting........

Well after having a lovely weekend at the Forest Art and Crafts Spring Fair and Loughton Leisure Centre selling my cards, bunting and jewellery a busy week has followed.

I thought I would post a few photos of the bunting looking lovely......

All of these gorgeous strips are 2.5m long and are priced at £20.00 each
