Hello and Welcome...

Hello & Welcome...My name is Anne-Marie, I am a full-time administration assistant for a local housing association, I have a husband, two adult sons, and a mad dog named Fritz. I spend any spare minute crafting (although there are never enough spare minutes)...anything from making cards, papercrafts, knitting, crochet, baking and making jams, curds etc. I also enjoy growing my own fruit/veg in my greenhouse/garden.

I hope I will post something that may be of interest to you.
..thanks for visiting xx

Buttons & Butterflies

It will be my niece's birthday on Sunday and wanted to make something a bit different.  So armed with a blank 8x8 canvas, pink buttons, pink gems and pink butterflies that I'd cut out using Sissix Sizlits die using my Big Shot I set to work.  And this is what I came up with...

I though it might look nice on her bedroom wall.  Had a great time making it and might have to make one for my nephew next, although don't think he'd be impressed with pink buttons & butterflies haha

I'd be grateful for any feedback and ideas on what I could use on a canvas for a 5 year old boy.

Thanks for stopping by, A-M xx
