Guest Crafters Spot – My Brother Stephen - Bulbs, Soil and Baskets Akimbo

Is it the most beautiful Christmas hyacinths arrangement in the World?


As most of you know my brother Stephen is very profoundly handicapped and looked after by my 78 year old mum. He goes to a Day Centre and at special times like Christmas  he brings something home for my mum that he has madeNow we know that his only contribution was probably holding a bulb for a second or two before throwing it, but he sat at the table and watched while the staff put it together with/for him and of all the presents in the world ….. this is the best and most wonderful of them all!

Tasting Snowflakes Card

This card is A5 and is made using a fine white ribbed card.
Tasting Snowflakes 3
I can soooo remember doing this when I was little. The image I’ve used is a actually the letter M from a font from Two Peas In A Bucket by David Walker called Let It Snow.

I’ve blown it up to a huge font size and then saved it as a jpeg, so that I can insert it into various projects without all the fiddle fart!

(This picture was taken before the dimensional paint had dried)
I’ve coloured the image with Promarker pens and then added some snow effect dimensional paint to the bottom and a touch of Stampin’Up Dazzling Diamonds on the snowflakes. This is the sort of card I would love to get.
