Bowls and Driftwood sculptures

Hi there friends, not a card I am sharing today but some things made by my very talented OH for a change. He has stopped making his little cottages for now, although he has a couple not painted yet. 

This time he decided to make some pretty bowls. I love the texture on the outside and the lovely colours he has chosen for the insides too. He also made a few driftwood sculptures. They aren't actual 'driftwood' but he has taken bark off etc. and treated then to look like that. Anyway I will include a pic of one here also.

The bowls are made from a mixture of things including cement, (I did ask him but it got complicated when he explained the ingredients and process involved lol). They are quite fragile though so really an ornament. Some of them have a pearlescent paint finish too which gives them a lovely sheen. Further down are some shallow bowls he has made and a couple of lace ones.

Ok here they are, come and have a quick peek. Sorry photo heavy!

The Flower Challenge #17 Reminder

Hi there friends, I am back with another reminder card for 'The Flower Challenge'. Our theme this month is 'Paper Piecing'. See our blog for more details if you are unsure what to do.

For my second card I used a piece of paper with a flower on like last time. I thought it was a novel idea to use a flower on a flower. I used a rose this time ;) Anyway come and have a peek at my card.

You have until the 25th Feb to enter our challenge. Also I have a few cards to share from last year, all made for 'The Flower Challenge'. If you visit all the other DT members they should also have cards to share too.

Thanks for your visit and of course ....enjoy your week/weekend whatever you have planned ;)
