On a theme..

Sometimes you get a quick hour to craft and I like to try and get lots done in that time. I love making cards individually but a batch make really helps when time is short.

These new home cards were created with a roller stamp from stampin up.. Stamping with the roller is fun but a bit tricky. I do use purpose made ruler to keep me straight.  I heat embossed them and then coloured in just one house. Very plain I know but cute!

Just for me...

So often I make things for other people but I really wanted to make me an upcycled denim apron. I cook and bake a lot so wanted a sturdy apron and  I got time this week to have a go and used some rather splendid Amy Butler fabric I have been coveting at every trip to John Lewis. What do you think?

Thanks to my super Mother-in-Law Linda for the jeans! She's been a star looking out for them at Jumble sales etc...
