They even survived a 140 mile trip home.

Crocus and Snowdrops2

I have been promising myself a try at this and when the chance came along I grasped it with both hands.

Meryl makes you very welcome and I spent the day with fabulous company our Ruth from Hunkydory having a good old chin wag and giggle.

If like Ruth and myself you used to do sugar craft then this relaxing craft will be right up your street.

Fun in the Sun - Hunkydory

These are a few makes from my Fun in the Sun luxury decoupage bundle shows by Hunkydory on Create and Craft today.

Cut kittens decoupage matted and layered on adorable scorable card and an acetate wrap to protect the decoupage.

This one was made from the Second Little Book of Decoupage, such a tranquil image, teamed with adorable scorable.

A fabulous biking scene from the decoupage main set of Fun in the Sun.


One for the sporty man, love the coloured in this one made on one of the fancy fold cards (easel) and one of the images from the Second Little book of Decoupage.

Another fancy fold card this one being a triple easel card And some of the Decoupage main bundle Fun in the Sun.

Hunkydorys acetate is a dream to work with, it does what you want it to do, in this one it is embossed with an embossing folder and made into the front of the card and the back of the card is one of the Adorable Scorable cards cut down to an A5 size.


A box made up and decorated using the background sheet for the decoupage image.

Jack Glass Blowing and Special Gifts

We have had a wonderful day out today, you may remember me visiting the Sunderland Glass Center as I wrote a post on it. We took Jack and his Mam Lauren along with us today and it was very special, Jack even got the chance to try his hand at glass blowing. (see video at end of my post)
We also had a little tour and Chris’s Friend gave both Jack and myself a beautiful hand crafted gift each.
Glass Cups 1
This one is mine.
Glass Cups 2
and this one is Jacks
Glass Cups 3
Dave makes these to sell and they cost £20.00 but all are unique and would make beautiful gifts, just let me know if you would like to purchase one and I will pass your details on to Dave.
Mine actually holds 16floz that is 3/4 of a pint.
Handles can be made in many colours one of which I saw was a gorgeous pink.
here is the video of our Grandson Jack blowing the glass.
