It had to happen sooner or later! Plus, sneak peeks revealed.

Oh no, it just had to happen sooner or later - I bet many of you have done the same - paintbrush in the teacup!



I can reveal 2 of my recent sneak peeks 'cso they've been received now.  First up is the doll!  This was for a swap born out of the PIF project and went to my friend Ann The 2nd one, an embroidered box, was part of the PIF and went to Kathleen  The box is made from fabric paper - muslin with tissue paper glued on, - which I painted and embellished with free machine embroidery.  I'd already received a lovely book from Kathleen :-) but forgot to blog it, I will do that at a later date.  I'll be receiving my swap from Ann on Friday and can't wait ;-)


I don't show many cards these days 'cos they're usually gone before I've thought to take a pic, but here's one I made for my friend Pat She's an avid Stampotique fan. I did some machine stitching on the card; I've been meaning to do more of that for a long time after seeing it used to great effect on other blogs.

As you know I adore the doll and the box looks fantastic too. Love the card for Part, I also used a Stampotique stamp, lol. xx

The box is fantastic and it was filled with felt embellishments. Alot of work had gone into making it. It was very much appreciated. Thanks again Anne for sending it to me. Kathleen x

You really should at least have painted a couple of sheets of card with that tea wash. You don't want to waste a good cuppa! I bet it was Yorkshire tea too!
Your doll is fabulous but I'd love to know a name for her and a bit about her personality, she looks a character. Great card too. I love Stampotique images but amazingly I don't yet have any!
Hugs Jo x

A doll with attitude-I love her. Great card too-the stitching really goes with the stamp theme.
Paint brush eh-well I managed to knock a stamp off the shelf straight into my cup of tea the other day LOL!

Kathleen said...

Well Anne different feelings on this post, disappionted that the Kathleen was not me..lol
Also did laugh out loud when I saw your card for Pat, it is so her but I still can't get my head round the fact that it is her.
I tried to do my card a little bit on her taste but think I failed miserably cos it is not me.
Hopefully see you Thursday.

Had to come back and see what I'd missed when I saw Hels' comment about the paintbrush! I only don't do this but only cos I keep the cup of tea way out of the way - so far that it always goes cold.... not sure which is worse, either way you have to make another cup of tea, lol! Gorgeous work, Anne & thanks for stopping by!
