my 1st scarve!!

if you've been to my blog before you may know that i'm teaching myself crochet,it's fun at times and annoying at others!!!
i've follwed my 1st pattern (yay!) it's a curly scarve :) i love how it just curled on it's own. not sure about the colour,at the moment i'm buying wool from charity shops because i don't want to shell out on nice expensive wool and muck it up!!!

my time to craft challenge

my time to craft
This week's theme is 'Doodling'. Try adding some freehand drawing to your projects. Maybe something really simple or if you're feeling really brave perhaps try drawing your own image instead of using a rubber stamp! Get your felt tips at the ready and have loads of fun doodling!

i've drawn these bird houses,1st time i've done this and i'm pleased with them!!! a bit of the ink from the edge smudged onto the picture so i hide it behind some tiny flowers!!

money box

my boy asked me to make him a money box that he couldn't get into!!! i used a washed out bean tin,put a disc on the top and covered it in parcel tape. i used free papers from a magerzine to decorate it. the only ways in are by ripping the paper off or using a tin opener on the bottom. he reackons he's going to fill it before opening it!!!!

dcm challenge

the latest dcm challenge went up on friday.......
It's Keryn here and it's my turn to set the dare this week.

I'm just loving all the new scallop punches that are out at the moment, circles, ovals, squares, edges etc, etc and then there's the corner rounder and slit punches that can be used to scallop edges as well.

Use your imagination, your scallop punches, your corner rounders, your cricuts and cuttlebugs to create any card to fit any style as long as it shows scallops.

here's mine :)
i cut the trees the way that kathy showed us on the bubbly funk cyber crop in september! the aper i used has a flocked pattern on it. the scallop is a chipboard stripe from woodware.And yes,i did use a peel off!!!!
