Magical Crafts Challenge #9

Good Morning All

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the last challenge 'For The Kids', so many wonderful projects.

For challenge 9 over on Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge the theme is...


Mother's day is fast approaching here in the UK, but we also understand that for some of you Mother's day is later in the year, so we would like to see projects with 'MUM' in mind, be it for Mother's day, birthday etc..
Remember we like to see all crafts over on Magical, so any crafting technique, be it knitting, woodwork, pottery, painting, papercrafts.....absolutely anything goes as long as you stick to the theme.

This week we are being sponsored by Sew Many Cards, and the winner will win 5 digi images of their choice from the SMC Store.

The DT were able to work with some SMC images and as always they have come up trumps with some inspiration for you, so be sure to check them out over on the challenge blog.  Here's mine.....


I've made this cute word book with my mum in mind.  Now my MIL being in her 80's is more the elegant flowery type of person and my mum, well I think she loves everything I do, but my dilemma was I know my mum is gonna be, Yes Mum, I know your looking!!!  So this is for me and I will be adding little pics and things about my mum to the pages and make it into a little keepsake for me.

Papers - K & Co

Ribbon from stash
Flowers punched from papers using Woodware Flower Punches

We do hope you'll be able to join us for our latest challenge, we look forward to seeing your creations.


Well I awoke this morning at 7:30 thanks to Mollie Mops and her barking at the poor paperboy.  When looking out of the window this is the scene I saw...

Yep...the snow is back!!  They forcasted that a light dusting of snow was likely, well I think this is a tad more than a light  And it's still going strong now.  But as you'll see below, Mollie Mops just loves it...


Don't think we'll be going far today!!
Enjoy your Sunday and if you have the snow enjoy it, but please be careful if you need to go out in it.

Crafting Joanne said...

Lol...thats because the lake is frozen Mel and covered with snow, when it's like that you can't tell it's a lake, more like a snow covered field. The word book is just printed out onto card from templates I already have so I only need to print out the letters that I need.
