Busy Morning for Me and Tom. 2 Challenges.

Well Tom and I have been busy this morning. Here is 2 Challenges for this morning. Tom helped with the Secret Crafter one as the Pencil holder is for him. So he helped to stick the stars onto it. His choice of colours for them too. The other one is Stamp Something.

Over on Stamp Something the challenge was to make a card without stamping. I made this card for my Friend who's Daughter had a baby on Monday. Made a new baby card earlier in the week so this is for Tracy and Derek.(Granny and Grandad!) Sadly it was confirmed on Thursday that baby Logan had Downs Syndrome, so he is an extra special wee man. He has been born into such a lovely family that they will cope with whatever life throws at them.

  • Jolly Nation Paper
  • Jolly Nation Teddy Decoupage
  • Peel Offs
  • Ribbon from stash

The second challenge of the morning was for the Secret Crafter. It was to make anything other than a card. Tom needed a pencil holder so this is what the pair of us made. Don't know if it counts since I had a wee helper. We both loved the shrink plastic. I have never used It before but thought a wee Paddington Bear would look cool on the holder. Tom decided on the stars he wanted put onto the holder so helped with that. At least his pens will all be in the same place now. He really loves to help make cards with me.

  • Empty Cotton Bud Container
  • Blue A4 Card
  • Letters free from magazine.
  • Paddington Bear Stamp (Free Gift in Magazine)
  • Versafine ink pad
  • Shrink Plastic
  • Watercolour Pencils
  • Peel Offs.

Well off to finish tidying up as Alan is due home from London in the next hour so better have a tidy house. LOL!!!
