Halloween but not


Two projects today. The first one is a card where Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential wanted a Halloween card without a Halloween image, made that by turning the autumn Magnolia into a pretty little witch, and Just Magnolia wanted handmade flowers so I punched out some flowers and painted with sand paint.

It's a pity you can hardly see the chain around the card, it's rather cool :)




And this afternoon my lovely daughter - the older one - came home and declared that they are going to have a bridal theme at school on Monday and do bridal hair-dos and use crowns out of iron thread. She forgot her (unfinished I might add) crown at school and could I please make a new one...
Planning ahead, that's her middle name! But... being a supportive mum...

Iron thread I said, not very pretty, can I pimp it? I could, she said, so here's the result. A bit like the metallic thingie on champagne bottles but it sure beats the half finished iron ring that lies forgotten at school :).
