Aurora Wings Challenge #9

Aurora Wings Challenge #9

Hi everyone, I hope that you've all had a wonderful weekend. I spent mine doing some Christmas shopping and trying to catch up on making my Christmas cards. Is it just me or do you think that this last year has just flown by, sort of like blink and you've missed it lol. Anyway today I would like to share with you my Aurora Wings DT card 
that I made for our new challenge and the theme this time is 

Anything Goes





To make this card I have used the following
Stepper card made using a fabulous die from Ruby Red Crafts, Papermania Capsule 
Collection Design Paper, Purple Card, Silver Mirri, White Satin Ribbon and Hand-tied 
bow which I colourised with my Promarkers, Sakura Gellyroll Pen, Glossy Accents and 
a pearl & diamante charm.





The beautiful image is Camellia Sprite from Aurora Wings 
and I've coloured her using my Pro/Flexmarkers, adding a touch 
of Sakura Stardust and Glossy Accents as highlights.

For more information on our new challenge and to see what fantastic 
prizes you could win please follow this link to the Aurora Wings Challenge 
Blog which you can find

Home Comforts

Home Comforts

Hi everyone, have you all had a lovely weekend? I've spent mine finishing off 
the cushions and blanket/throw that I knit and crocheted. It's been such a long time 
since I knit or crocheted anything so I thought that I'd better ease my way into it 
by making something really easy like a throw, then I decided to make matching 
cushions, but rather than leave them plain I added some crocheted flowers with 
wooden button centres in matching yarn. 





I made the blanket/throw using 500g Ivory DK, 500g Mink DK & 500g Chocolate DK 
I crocheted all 3 yarns together. Using 10mm crochet hook, I crocheted 70 
chain stitches, then single stitched each row adding an extra chain stitch at each end 
of row.





Here are the crocheted flowers that I made in each of the colour yarns with wooden 
button centre.





The next cushion I made I decided to use some really chunky wool that I had left over and just 
knit it up and added some wooden buttons that my clever hubby turned for me on his wood 
turning lathe.





Here are the buttons my hubby made for me :) of course they did need sanding off and 
waxing before I could use them but I just couldn't wait to take a piccy of them, which 
is just so like me, I can't wait for anything lol hehehe.
 My hubby's now in the process of 
creating a wooden shell for my newly decorated bathroom, I've been trying to get towels, 
and shower curtain and other bits and pieces to tie in with the pictures that I made a couple 
of months ago now which were a DT make for Aurora Wings, but It's been so difficult 
to find just what I'm looking for. When it's all done I will pop some pictures on here I 
promise.
