Bits and Bobs

One is well and truly fed up with the snow now BUT not being able to g out has meant I've managed to get some things done LOL.

Back in July I attended one of Carol's classes at Papermaze and made this gorgeous altered art frame.  So I decided to make another but making it into a photo frame this time, used all the techniques Carol taught me and came up with this. The butterflies were stamped onto grungeboard and coloured with DI's, the flower I stamped 3 times coloured with DI's then fiddled and faffed until it looked like a flower LOL.




I love using Tando products as they are so sturdy and take a lot of abuse from me changing my mind etc... Carol also kindly gave me this canvass project to do, I couldn't go to the class so had to improvise a bit, I am really pleased with how it turned out. The Merry Christmas is again from Tando as are the snowflakes.



And I finished the covers to the mini album again using techniques taught by Carol, that girl is so talented....

 
Had to get up at 5.30am today to get to the hospital for 8.30am, roads weren't as bad as expected and the consultant said he had not only removed a huge sack of fluid, protein and leaked silicon but had also taken away some more bone from my wrist which was hindering the tendons, so that explains why my hand is feeling good, the not so good news was the fluid is already coming back BUT we've decided to leave it and see how it goes as the next step is fussing the wrist and I would like to put that off for as long as possible.

Hounds are loving the snow, even Jim who struggles with icy stuff but loves the soft snow.

Not bad for an old fella with 3 legs...

Phew that was a long post..............

Oh my, what gorgeous crafting. Thank you for sharing, I would love to put both the frame and canvas on the Tando Creative blog if that's ok.
