Well I've had a busy crafting week, renewing forgotten skills and visiting old and some new friends in blog land. It's been lovely to see how some things have changed and how some have stayed just the same! I received another really quick delivery from Hobby Art this week and quickly inked the stamps up. A subject dear to my heart again, not birds but bees!
Here's what I made
I just knew the honeycomb would bridge the gap in another impossible card.
Not done with the birds though, just arrived home from a run up the dale (I live in the Yorkshire Dales) and I've seen Buzzards, Barn Owls, Pied Wagtails, Curlews to name but a few and hundreds of these amazing birds
Lapwings. They have amazingly iridescent feathers when you see them in real life. This is a paperweight I picked up from some cheapy shop which originally had an olde worlds map picture in it, so I soaked it overnight to get the picture off then cut a leftover pic of the lapwing from Hobby Arts Seashore Bundle using a spellbinder circular die and smothered it in glossy accents to stick it to the paperweight.
It has always sat on my desk but now I like the picture that's in it, and when I get bored of it, I can soak it again and change it.
My other business of the week has been tidying my craft room. Unfortunately on the back of one of my cupboard doors I cam across some strips of old denim jeans which have been in the way of the door closing properly for years so I thought I'd tidy them away.
Now I've got to tidy away the peg loom and the bits of thread I've cut off after finishing the rug. Great way to use up old jeans though!
Hope you've have had as enjoyable a day as I have.
