Finished building..... last! 30 houses I've done in the last few weeks, needless to say, apart from a couple of birthday cards and a couple of diva gifts nothing else has been, there are 6 houses on my header, and here's another 22 (yep adds up to 28 coz I cheated and made another hen house for one special lady! and made another dark tree one as I liked it!! lolxx)

I think that its time to do something else now!!!

Diva Gift......

Each month on the forum two lucky ladies are nominated as "Diva of the month". This month is Lottie (who's charm is a few posts down) and my dear friend Ginger. After meeting Ginger at lunchtime (we were "ladies that lunch" today!! lolxx) and giving her her Diva gift I'd thought I'd share it with you all too....

Torso's mark 2!

Ever since I can remember I have had this habit of not reading things properly! I skim thro' instructions and the like and am usually ok! However, there are times when I've made a complete and utter hash of things, and unfortunately, my torsos (mk 1) have fallen into this category! They should have been ATC sized!! so, with limited time I've copied the bigger torsos and made smaller ones!! and here they are:-

..its very dark here today and the photo could have done with better lighting (or should that be a better photographer??)
Have you noticed my "embellishment" of the day/week/month has still managed to get in there!! I just adore those fusible film butterflies, I've run out now so guess what tonights job will be??....where's that iron?.......lolxx

Thank you all for looking at my blog and for the really lovely comments - I really appreciate

shrink plastic, friendly plastic and utee charm!

...or should that read the charm of shrink plastic, friendly plastic and utee?? anyway, during my visit to Ally Pally in April I stood and watched a brilliant demo by Robert, from Once upon a Stamp - after seeing Joanne mention the same demo, but, at a different venue, it reminded me of the charm I'd made for Lottie as a Diva gift.

The effect is gorgeous, more so when Robert did his!, and so simple to do too.

These demos are such eye openers, I'd never have thought of mixing some of the medias they do and the results are always so stunning - never mind how tired you feel when you get home, you've just got to get into the craft room and rustle up something using all those new techniques....
