blog logo
Its Saturday and Crumbs we are flying towards the latter part of January too! The New Challenge at Totally Gorjuss today is...Welcome
This could be Welcome home, Welcome back, Welcome Baby
I guess there are lots of different welcomes you could have???
We are sponsored by Heathers Hobbie Haven

I have been busy and last week I posted a picture of some crocheting I was teaching myself. This is the picture I showed you…. and No one guessed what it was going to be…??

But…. and there is still one! this is no ordinary box….
See the slit down the front…?

here’s why the slit is there it opens like this…..IMG_4755 (640x480)
I have used several off cuts of ribbon as I wanted to have different ones, ( from the bargain bowl) so there are several pieces here, and the Penny black bear I coloured with distress inks the welcome I printed on my PC and then stamped the bear over the text.

Lucy's Inspiration - day - 3

Whimsy Inspires Challenge - Blue and Brown.
Stamptacular Sunday – Texture
Digi doodles challenge – Blue and Brown.
Crafty Catz - Buttons and Bows. (buttons on the shoes)
Patties Creations - Fancy Folds.
Simon says stamp and show - Anything but a card
Paper Play - Ribbon Every Which Way.
CES Challenge - Anything but a card.
Penny Black Challenge - Crafty Bargains - I wonder if the little heart Buttons can be classed as a crafty bargain I got them when I bought a couple of new tops at Christmas, they buttons were on the tags sold at a clothing shop called the white stuff... so they were a bargain for me as I did not even pay for them! tehhehee, Also the ribbon was all little off cuts reduced in price.
I Just want to share the other item I have been working on…. This was the picture I added….

  17. I came over here to say how fab I thought your baby box was (I saw it on Totally Gorjuss) but was stunned by those gloves. I think they are just fab. I get really cold hands and these would be fab cos you still have the use of your fingers (great for crafting or typing !!! LOL) Fab projects. You never cease to amaze me with the diversity of your crafting. Annette xx

  18. Wow Samantha, you know I love that box and those cute little tiny baby slippers as well. Your talent never stops to amaze me, and don't get me started on those gloves honey;) I want some. They are awsome:):) Seriously love them. If I only had the patience to learn how to knit;) Big hugs Bettina xx
