Rest time

After much consideration, i have decided to take a week out and actually turn off my computer and rest. I have always thought of my time on pc as leisure time but as i work on it so much too, and because i have been so unwell lately, I am going to include the time i spend online in my 'break time' and so won't be posting here for a week. I will miss everyone but will be back soon. In the meantime have a lovely week everyone
hugs June

Colour create - Lady at the races

Ruby cream & Gold is the theme at colour create so i thought i would give it a go. I used one of the colour ladies from my blog Dezinaworld and printed it on to a sheet of canvas that my wonderful friend Hilda kindly sent to me. I then coloured the scarf and gloves in gold pen and the flower in her pocket in ruby pen then added three gold and ruby teardrops. I then sewed cream embroidery thread around the edges to make this fab patch which i may add to a pair of jeans :)

Birds n bee

A very special friend of mine met me in town today and we had a lovely time gossiping and looking around my local art shop. Jude thank you so much and especially for your gift but most of all for the wonderful company of you and your beautiful daughter. I do hope to spend a little more time with you next week before you go home.
As promised I have used the birdy stamps today and here are my makes.
The card is called bluebirds and is made up from torn paper bags and other recycled papers.
The ATC is made for the challenge at The Little Yellow challenge blog which this week is anything but a card. I used a little sakura stardust pen and gold pen to highlight parts and background doodles on this one.

Well thats my crafts for the day- A VERY SPECIAL friends day - Thanks Jude :)
