My first attempt at an Altered Slide mailer.

I created this for my best friend Jane (AKA JustJane) in return for a beautiful one that she sent to me. It so inspired me that I just had to have a go.
I used the textured stamping technique on the front then painted it blue and silver and embossed it with silver embossing powder, I copied Jane's idea of using an altered jigsaw piece to embellish it with, to which I had attached a fairy charm , along with some fibers to which I attached some little crystal beads.
inside I put an image of a fairy and stamped the word Dreams on the inside flap. I really enjoyed doing this.
Jane got me the slide mailers and sent them to me by post, so I shall be working on some more before long.

First day of Spring

Well it's the first day of Spring at last, and here is a piccie of my one eyed cat Peanuts enjoying the sunshine. he has his only eye shut, so looks like any other cat. lol.
Daffodils Hyacinths and Tulips have erupted everywhere in my garden, I did not know that they were there, as this is my first Spring in the bungalow, yet another feature that makes me so happy that I moved here.
Peanuts clearly loves it here
I haven't been too well lately suffering with synus
problems on top of my usual complaint, but a week or two more of this glorious weather (hopefully) will soon chase away the Winter blues, and all the coughs and sniffles associated with it, so that I can get back to some serious crafting.
