A Little Reminder...

There is still time to join in the fun of the All Dressed Up Blog Hop & the chance to win some fabulous images :o)  I little while ago I posted a pic of an elephant I made using one of Wendy's digital images (you can see the post HERE) & I tweaked the pattern a bit & here is the 2nd elephant (It's still a bit lumpy lol but I think elephants are a bit lumpy ;o)  I used an old scarf for his body & some scraps of fabric for the ears.

I hope you're all having a great week.  Thanks for looking xx

Christmas is Coming...

& I really need to get a move on with my Christmas crafting!  Luckily All Dressed Up have some gorgeous Christmas images & I chose "All Dressed Up For Christmas" for my card for the new Anything Goes challenge (using an All Dressed Up image or papers).  I did some paper piecing & added lots of gems to the tree.  The papers were from my stash & I finished off with some Glamour Dust, fabric greeting, bow, die cut poinsettia & brad.  

All Dressed Up is now 2 years old - can you believe that - and to celebrate we are having an extra special Birthday Blog Hop starting on 7th November to coincide with the November New Release.  

Wendy is very kindly giving you all
