Because I felt like it.


Where did the Summer go!

I can't believe there is only 1 week of the school holiday left and all the things I wanted to get done will have to stay on the list until next time.
I did make sure I had time to do some crafting and this card is for a friend who loves her garden.
I used a set of free flower stamps to make the main image and coloured it with Promarkers.
The main background paper is Basic Grey and I think the orange one is Papermania. Everything else is from my stash.
I am entering the following challenges:

Pocket Full of Posies - Winged Things



I also spent the past week making a variety of felt objects. I started making things out of needle felt last year but really wanted to have a go at wet felting but was a bit worried about the mess! However I found a really good website with some excellent videos and decided to give it a try.

I have to say if you need to deal with any frustration or pent up emotion then wet felting and especially Nuno felting are just the thing. There is something very satisfying about slamming a piece of wet felt into a sink over and over again and having an imaginary conversation with whoever has annoyed you. And you actually end up with something beautiful when you have finished. How good is that!
