Something a bit different~

Hello Girls,

What a lovely crisp, cold but sunny day here, hope it is nice where you are too.

My lovely Daughter Eve and her boyfriend Sean have gone off on holiday skiing today, when she returns (next Saturday evening) she will be 21 the day after....Oh how time flies, I remember her first day at school as if it were yesterday! I could get a bit teary when I think of it, but so much to do before she gets back....No time for all that, get a grip girl!!

I have finished the bunting for the wall, bought all the cake stuff, icing, cupcake cases, "21" cake topper, feathers etc, have bought the nibbles (in freezer) and am in the throws of cleaning the house (Yak, hate that bit!!) Pressie's are all bought, personalised number plate ready to pop on her car (off Sean!), card made...Doing ok!

I have had a good play this afternoon while watching Create and Craft. The woman on doing the demo's "Helen" I think she was called, was using Tim Holtz Grunge Paper and I took a fancy to what she was doing, so out came mine and inks and vintage lace etc, and I ended up doing this project...Hope you like it.

The "E" is for my Daughter Eve, thought I would put this with her other pressies, she loves my handmade craft items, so know she will like this, and I have chosen green as the base colour as her bedroom is green and brown.
I have used Tim's Alterations Die (Sewing Room) dress form, love this, and used some Hobbyhouse vintage roses ribbon, and pins. I have stamped over the "E" with my set of My Mind's Eye Lost and Found stamps. The flowers are made with grunge paper, Tim's Tatty flowers Die and inked up, all finished with a bit of copper stickles.

Entering this "E" into the following Challenges:

Alphabet Ch--Y=You Choose

Crafty Catz--Use Something New


Pollycraft Monday--Anything but a Card
