Wooly Madness

I have been utterly enjoying my trip into Needle felting and I thought I would share a couple of more projects with you.

First up is Little Peggy my sleepy Tea Cup Mouse.
Such a cute little critter and I got the tutorial for it HERE

Next up is my sheep and I have struggled to think of a name
for her, it is a her and she is wearing a heart on her chest
to say "I love ewe".  I told Darren I would give her to him for Valentines, to which he said "What am I going to do with a felted sheep?"  I told him "Say thanks and then give it back!"  LOL

Lastly here is Barnabus Bear, this bear looks nothing like he was supposed to
but he turned out cute.

I do hope you have enjoyed looking at my Wooly Madness!
Until next time, I am off to stab some wool xx

(I purchase all my lovely core wool and natural wools and blends
from Fleece 4 Ewe - this is on Facebook  Tell her Caz sent ya!)

Crazy 4 Challenges C4C370

Hello is Saturday again and that means challenge time.  This is my last Saturday for hosting and I wanted to send Thanks to Lynn for playing along with me this month :)  You can see Lynn's and all the other Crazies over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  The link is top left of my blog.

Today is Squirrel Appreciation Day!!  Would would have thought that eh?  I love squirrels and I wanted to celebrate with them, so I challenge the team to make a card with these fluffy creatures, or alternatively another critter of their choosing.

I used this adorable stamp from Lili of the Valley HERE
I love this design, in fact I love a lot of their designs and they are lovely to
 colour in.  I have used my watercolour pencils here.

For the inside the used the Karen Burniston 
Twist Circle Pop it Up die with a simple Happy Birthday message.

A simple but effective card :)  I do hope my Sister in Law Sue liked it.

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C368 - New Home or Within the Home

Hello its Caz again and this week the challenge was : Today is organise your Home Day - Create a card suitable for NEW HOME or something within the home.

I chose to create a couple of gifts for my sons friends which they could display in their rooms.  He has a joint Birthday Party tomorrow.  These cute little chalk boards are great for jotting down reminders, play o's and x's or doodles.

I used papers from We R Memory Keepers and an awesome
die set called Pixelated from Neat & Tangled.
Just perfect for boys and pre teens/teens.

For for the girly one I used a Stampendous Stamp 
called Whisper Wall from Crafts U Love.

I do hope the recipients like these little gifts.

Crazy 4 Challenges C4C367 - Old Rock

Its the First Crazy for challenges date for 2017 and this Month its my turn to choose the challenges for the month. Today is "Old Rock Day" The unofficial holiday the day that Geologists and amateur rock enthusiasts take it upon themselves to show their appreciation of all things fossilised and stony. Who would have guessed ?!

So for this challenge I said  "Create something to do with Rock. Could be a scene with mountains, Rock n Roll, Stone style Paper, A brick wall or a precious gem!"

For my card I used the Stone Paper from Elizabeth Craft Designs to create an old stone wall.  That was my starting point.  Oh, how very British I thought, so I added the Post Box from the Mouse Mail set from Reverse Confetti, again more Britishness, I thought to myself it needs some sheep to finish it off and I used SNOWBALL the sheep from KAREN BURNISTON.  Decided that Snowball wanted a friend and decided to throw in a different breed in as well :)

My good friend Lynn is my guest for this month and you can see her card on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and on her blog.

My husband laughed when he saw this.  "Sheep" he said... I have over the Christmas period started playing with Needle Felting and since then
have been watch numerous videos about how to do it and been talking
all things Wooly!  I think he thinks I have gone mad :)
As as crafter it is fun to try other things, I will always be a Paper Crafter
Stamper and Die cutter. But this little diversion into Felt Craft is fun :)

And here, whilst I am posting about it I will share my first two attempts.

Until next time Crafters!! xx
