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 
maddy.hill@hotmail.co.uk
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 ! 

love Maddy xxx
