A few more things off my to do list...

... yup, still ticking things off my list - the chicken has (finally) been made into a cushion:

I had plenty of stripey material left over so that is what is on the reverse of the cushion. Even hubby is starting to get into the swing of things - with the spare material I suggested re-covering the dining room chairs - he did one last night, hope to get the other 3 done over the next couple of nights when he has finished work - yay!!! (However, can I just say I did suggest doing this years ago - but he said it wouldnt work - erm???)

A frame was purchased this morning:

I know its not framed right no pinning, stretching etc - just a bit of pulling and a bit of ds tape - but it seems to do the trick ;-) - hmm just thinking whether to stick some things around the edge of the frame to take the plainless off - but worried I'll end up spoiling it??

At last, a card:

I must admit this was made the othe week, just didnt get round to bloggin it. The image was stamped by one of the lovely ladies over at MSE and coloured with promarkers. I have used freebie papers from a magazine, with flowers, sentiment and buttons from my stash. I lurve this image - she just looks lovely.

I would like to enter this into:

Always something creative - pink & brown
Emerald Faerie Garden - buttons
Aud Sentiments - for a girl
Charisma cardz- anything goes
