Miss April Showers ...

I've been trying to post on here for nearly a week - but  blogger is refusing to upload pictures for me !!
Apparently its something to do with the broadband , its so slow . The good news is that virgin is going to give me some sort of refund !- Maybe i can catch up on some crafty spending with that !

Since i can't post one of my new cards and fimo - i thought i would show you an old one .. if you have'nt dug deep into my blog you will have missed this one !
This is from a few years ago - Blogger does not want to upload but seems to be happy for me to copy paste thank goodness !

Anyway - Let me introduce Miss April Showers !

Card , box and Fairy set .
Well its April and what happens in April ?
Showers ofcourse !

 I love this blue and white combo , not one i can say ive really used before.
I cant remember what the papers are called (sorry) as they 
were some scraps  I had.
tilda is coloured with copics and ive used my martha stewart punch from 
The flowers i made from fimo.

Inside the card is decorated also 

Now shall we meet Little Miss Fairy Showers ?

She aint happy is she ? Its still raining and her wings are getting wet ! hee hee !
Good job she has her raincoat , hat and wellies on ! 
I made her from Fimo , a polymer clay that bakes in the oven. I dont use
moulds , just model with my hands .

Its Dripping here , dripping there ... however is she going to fly home ?

I have to say i really really had fun doing her little wellies !

Gorjuss Cards and fimo Teddy set.

Well i very nearly fainted today when i delved into my fimo box - there was hardly any fimo left ! I had planned on making a fimo dolly to match my Gorjuss Girl card , but had to settle making a teddy instead !

This set is just adorable and comes complete with card box.

I can't keep calling her Teddy - so ive named her Mabel ! I think it suits her ! .. She has a little jacket on with roses on the top of the sleeves and roses for buttons - very cute and comes with fabric doily too.

The card stamp is a Gorjuss Girl called Forget me Not  and the papers are from the 6 x 6 pad from Bo Bunny  Ambrosia collection  and Bo Bunny pearls all from Charmed Cards.The card is embellished with a metal clip , lace, blooms , pearls and gorgeous glittery brads that i had left over from another Bo Bunny collection.
This set is for sale - £14.50 plus 3.00 postage costs .. paypal accepted.
if you live outside the UK please contact me for postage costs xx
The set will be available to post from this Thursday onwards.

I'd like to enter this into these challenges
Inspire me Fridays -Anything goes
moving along with the times - cute and cuddly
Stamping for the weekend - anything goes

Love Maddy xx

Felt keyrings and pins !

Over the last few weeks Sophia , my daughter and me have been making some felt keyrings and broaches or brooches ( as some people spell them ) . There are loads of craft fairs and stalls near where i live and ive been itching to get Sophia making things ... so we have been having a good play with some felt -
The flower shape was from a chipboard flower that we just used as a template and the circles were cut from a sizzix die cutter . I love these they are so funky !
These are the cupcake keyrings ...
These ones i adore - Heart broaches ( pins if you live in US !) 

We had great fun using the bigshot and dies - 
Very relaxing sitting there sewing - and nice change actually for me from card making - 
I shall be getting the old fimo out in the next of so too - i do miss it !
