Once again I have left it too late to make a card for this weeks Bee Crafty challenge. One of my excuses is that I was busy helping out at the Craft Show at the Birmingham Motor Cycle Museum on Saturday. I had a great day with Bev and Sam from Bee Crafty and made a few people smile with our Bumble Bee accessories. The craft show at the motor cycle museum is going to be a regular event, so if you couldn't make it this weekend look out for future dates and come and say hello.
My second excuse is that I spent all day Sunday trying to tame the jungle that used to be my garden. Sadly the cold winter we had, has killed of most of my plants and shrubs but strangely enough not any of the weeds, brambles or nettles! lol It's almost under control now and I think one more hard push this weekend should have it completely tidied and ready for visitors! lol
So I hope you will all forgive me if I post a picture of something that I made a while ago. Iit's just a little house made out of scraps of felt and material, with the odd button stitched here and there. This was then attached to an old keyring I had laying around. I can't say I thought up the original idea as I made it after seeing it in a magazine, anyway I thought it went well with this weeks challenge theme.
Have a good week everyone.

I feel really guilty as this card has been thrown together in a matter of minutes, but I so wanted to take part in this weeks Bee Crafty "Spring" challenge so I hope you will all forgive me!
The reason for my lack of quality crafting time this week is that I have been lucky enough to be invited to help out again on the Bee Crafty stand at the Motor Cycle Museum Craft Show this Saturday (9th April 2011) and I have been busy putting a few little ideas together for the show. This will be the 2nd craft show that I have been lucky enough to help out at, and Bee Crafty will once again be showcasing lots of fab crafting products.
If you are free on Saturday between 10am and 4pm, and you fancy having a mooch around the Bee Crafty stand it would be really great to see you all at the show! Just look out for the Bumble Bees!

A couple of weeks ago you may remember, I purchased a Wellington Boot clear stamp by Woodware, (from Bee Crafty in Bidford upon Avon) and went crazy making lots of wellington boots. Up until today I did not know what I was going to do with my collection of boots, but whilst sorting through my hand crafted greetings cards I came across a card that I wasn't really happy with. So I took it apart and reworked it using two of my wellies that just happened to feature the same paper. (The paper was from a Forever Friends 6 x 6 paper pack called "Just For Him") I must admit I am quite pleased with the result. So much so it has inspired me to use the other boots I have made. So as usual watch this space!
