♥ Let's Craft & Create ~ Recipe

Hi there :)  ... Two weeks just flown by and we are back with our fortnightly challenge over at Let's Craft and Create.  the theme is a "Recipe" .... Use some fabric or felt, a button and a stamped sentiment, easy as ABC :) :)
I made this little plushie apple all hand stitching and have 2 buttons on it, I then stamped a sentiment on kraft card, cut out with CC Cutters baner die and attached with a pearl pin.  The sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse
Pop over and check out all the fab projects from my team friends :)

Thanks for looking ♥

♥ Die-ing for a challenge ~ Pink & green ♥

Over at Die-ing for a challenge this month is to make a card or project using PINK & GREEN.
I made this little heart from felt using one of the Die-namic heart dies and the green flower is from Cuttlebug dies.  I stitched a pink button to finish.  I don't know whether to attach a brooch pin or a magnet to the back (haven't decided yet) maybe you could help me decide .. LOL ;)

Thanks for visiting

♥ A few new things I made ♥



Hi there,  I couldn't sleep too well last night, so I got out my beading tray and made all these decorative Gracie pins :)  The top 2 are hat pins which I love, or you could wear them as a lapel brooch.  The 3rd set are Gracie decorative pins for card making or would be lovely to collect fancy pins and add them to a beautiful pin cushion :)
Just thought I would share these as im delighted with them.
They are for sale in My Etsy also added more few bits and bobs :)
Don't forget to pop over to our challenge ... Let's Craft and Create "Anything goes"

Have a blessed weekend

♥ Let's Craft & Create ~ One layer ♥

Well I am absolutely delighted to be able to make a card :) after weeks of ill health, I have had a rough ride, never thought I would have been able to lift a stamp again, I have what's known as Functional disorder which I "will" make a full recovery from :)  There are loads of different types, quite complex thing (",) in a nutshell I have had to learn to re-train all my muscles again as there are blocked signals not getting through to my nervous system which have caused me a list of problems from paralysis to speech impairment, but the good news is I am making great progress and every day brings me a step closer to a full recovery .... baby steps ... but I'm getting there :)  Thank the Lord :)
This is a tiny note card I made for Let's Craft and Create challenge team and I'm pleased at my first attempt that my hand stayed steady :) Yaaaaay!!!!
Please pop over and see my team mates creations and join in the fun ♥♥
