Bit of up-cycling and few cards

Well I just had to use this huge washing powder box. I already had to pull it out from recycling as my OH chacked it away, he was shocked when he seen it in the house again lol I needed a storage for my magazines and he just told me why I don't through away the magazines I told him he's out of his mind lol
So here is the original box
 And here is the finished box. Once I cut it to size (I even carved myself and my jeans too lol ) I put gesso on it then painted it with white acrylic and while it was still wet I added black then a small amount of brown what's not showing on the pic. Once it was dry I distressed the edges with Tim Holt's ink and printed  the Cogs corners from Delicious Doodles's shop and fussy cut it (took me hrs to do the four) stuck it on then die cut a label & done a charm with the found bits&bobs and hey presto it was done
At Delicious Doodles  this week the theme is Steampunk so make sure you pop over and check out the DTgirls fab creations 
Just a close up on the front got a bit of glitter acrylic on it too
 and my magazines in their place, I've got 2 yrs in there and still room for this yrs one

 This little cutie is my TioT DT card wherewe given you this theme:On the Wild Side 
  This little cute digi is called Zebra&Foal and you can find it in the DD Shop. The BD stamp is LoTV. Got a bit of embossing on the side and I made that stomping on my embossing folder, yes I did stand on it so I just got partial print, then I inked it with TH ink
 and here is the close up on the sweet image

 This is my last card and I made this using High Hopes Silly-Billy stamp. It's been water coloured, glittered and used pearly doodles too. Embossed the background this time the normal way lol put the border and twine then diged out a BD ticket from stash and finished. This was a quick card though as it was the little boys birthday today and I forgot to make a card. Came very handy that HH theme for this fortnight challenge is CAS 
Close up on Silly-Billy

That's all for now. Off to put kids to bed now
Take care

It's bin a long time now since I done some stitching, so got my patterns out and I chose one to fit with Hight Hopes theme: CAS as well as LIM: Cats and/or  Dogs
It's taken me few hrs to do it but I love it. I cut out the inside of the frame and I stuck the HH stamp behind it. I just realised I only got a really small dog stamp and this is my only cat, no good I think I need to get some more HH stamps after fathers day is done lol
Here is a close up on my stitching, not perfect but I still love it

Off to put Alfie to bed now. Will be back in the morning with a new post

I've got an other card to show you. I made this for Alfie's birthday 2 weeks ago but I forgot to post it for High Hopes challenge then but as the theme is " One for the boys" I can post it now.
The digi is Harry Potter by Bugaboo and the owl well 1/2 is HH image. Obviously the owl is Hadwig ( I should know by now how to spell it but I don't sorry)

 Here we go the birthday boy
 Ok now you wonder why I've took a pic of my little family by someones grave, well it's Adrian's  great granddad grave in Preston and he is a WW 1 war hero who was awarded  the biggest/highest medal can be given the Victorian Cross. When Adrian talked abt to Alfie,  Alfie sad he wants to go and see the museum where his VC is, so that how we ended up in Preston for his birthday and we made a long weekend out of it. It was really nice
 Little close what was named after him
 Went to the Museum/ baraks where he was stationed and we were shown around, took us upstairs and got all paper work out from the archival AND had the honour to hold the Victorian Cross, it;s heavy lol
 Kids were absolutelly having blast. We were the only visitors so when we were upstairs looking the documents they were left alone downstairs to craft and later they came up to look round, they behaved really well
 I think Alfie really liked the hands on on stuff

Off to do my washing up, for some reason it did not go away in the last 2 hrs lol damn looks like there is no washing up fairy lol

Take care and thanks popping by

Spruced up

Over at DD we gave you the theme "Anything BUT a card" so I thought I spruce up one of my fav free bag (came with a mag) I take it I love it cos I've got the matching shoes to go with it, yeah I've got  a thing to have matching shoes and bag lol
I was going to make something else but my friend forgot to pick the T-shirt up from work so I had to go for plan "B"
and here is the end result
I've got this bag for abt 7 yrs now so it was time to rewamp it lol took me a while to stitch those flitters on but I love how it turned out. Few yrs ago I bought a special glitter what works on closing and I don't thing I have used them so I thought this was the perfect time to do so (they are wash proof )
 I printed 2 skulls out and one of them is mirror printed so on the bag they face each other, I stitched chain in ther mouth and I just had to use my hand little angel what I costume made for this bag, have to have a goodie with the baddie lol

 Before I get onto my next card here is a bit of mouth water shoe pastry filed with strawberry and whipped cream. I made this this afternoon. I don't bake as they never turn out the way they should but this one turned out fab and will make some little balls tomorrow with chocolate filing, just let's hope they turn out as good as this one

I made this for my father in lows birthday but forgot to blog it but thanks God Hight Hopes' this week challenge is "One for the boys" so I can post this
 This old goat is so adorable, I just had to use it

Ok I'm cold and my water is running so I'm off to have a nice hot bath
