back from holiday

Got back from my holiday and so not a great deal of crafting has been done. It seems to be that when you get back from a holiday you need another to sort out all the washing. We went camping in north Norfolk, we had relatively good weather with a couple of rain storms. The week we got back it was our little boys birthday so there was loads of wrapping of parcels, organising party bags and of course baking for the party on the Saturday, and to top that the brownies were on pack holiday so for two evenings (the same weekend) i helped get them organised with there beds and support my other guider who was spending the whole weekend with them.

But i have had time to make a birthday gift for one of my crafting friends. I bought a paper mache suit case from a local craft fair at Bramford. Used wild honey distress stain on it and brushed corduroy distress ink. I painted some chipboard with paperartsy fresco paint and stamped my newly purchased phrenology stamp on to it and cut it out. Coloured it in with DI's and added the large eyes (stamps used were from Wendy vecchi). I cut out a butterfly stamped some polka dots on it and made a rolled flowered rose from Graphic 45 paper. The rose ribbon is from maya rd and the number token i found at the same local craft fair. Finally a stamp added.
