Well that was some weekend! Aside from the horrendous journey there (five hours, instead of three!) a good time was had by all. My nephews, Freddie and Henry, kept us all entertained and on the football front although we didn’t win, we didn’t lose either and it could have been a whole lot worse. If we had a striker or two we would have probably won! I also got to meet England legend Martin Peters and had another chance to get up close to one of my favourite players, former goalkeeper Phil Parkes.
Freddie and Henry were disappointed Halloween was over so, as their birthdays are in November, I helped them each make a birthday countdown book so they can see exactly how long to go. And talking of birthdays, I also got some fabulous late birthday presents including this cute little snow scene that they made for me.
Isn’t it fabulous?! I also got the tiniest little nativity scene.
I need to try making something like this, it’s even smaller than a matchbox! They also gave me this beautiful white dish:
Which gives me a great idea for using my ever expanding collection of bee stamps…and butterfly stamps too…
So, to today’s project which of course, because it’s Monday, features some fabulous images from The Graphics Fairy.
We used to have some Christmas decorations that featured circus animals. They were made from chipboard and were embellished with gold foil. They were usually one of the last things to go on the tree and it was often a struggle to find enough empty branches to house them. When I saw these gorgeous vintage circus animal images over at The Graphics Fairy I thought they would be perfect to make some thing similar to the decorations I used to have.
I printed out two of each image, making sure one was reversed,and stuck them back to back with a piece of gold ribbon sandwiched in between.
Once the glue was dry, I inked the edges and then decorated with ribbon and glitter.These would also make great gift tags and would be lovely as a decoration for circus themed birthdays.
Hope you have a good week and thanks for buzzing by.
