Don't Forget...

to join the latest All Dressed Up "Anything Goes" challenge :o) You do need to use Wendy's fab images or papers BUT don't worry if you haven't got any you will find some fab freebies HERE, so there is no excuse to join in the fun ;o)  (& there is the chance to win 3 images of your choice too!).  I so love making things & mixing and matching crafts & when I made a card with the "Tall Like You" Image I thought I'd try & use the elephant as a pattern for a soft toy or cushion & this is the result.  He is a bit wonky but it came out better than I was expecting (I have tweaked the pattern to make another one & will blog that when it's finished).

If you didn't know there is also an All Dressed Up Facebook group too so we would love to see you there.  I hope you've had a lovely Sunday (though they do tend to go way too quickly lol)

My VERY Favourite Pocket Letters :o)

We all like happy mail & those who read my blog will know that I have recently got into making Pocket Letters (which are a sort of cross between ATC's & scrapbooking...with little goodies included) & you can imagine how excited when I received 3 envelopes in the post addressed to Nanny Tracey.  My 3 adorable grandchildren had all made me a Pocket Letter.  You can see that we are a crafty family & all love art & craft & are always creating something :o) 

This one is Ryan's who is 10
This one is Abigail's who is 7
& this one is Bethany's who is 4
I've nearly finished the ones to send back to them & will post pics when they are finished.  I hope your all having a great Saturday & enjoy the rest of the weekend :o)
