Something Different

Hello my crafty friends!! What a miserable day we are having in Dorset. So miserable that the pony kept shouting every time I passed the kitchen window so I had to relent and put her in her stable!! See, I am most definitely "employed" by our animals!! Anyway more animals to share with you today and something a little different. 

When I first dipped my toes into paper crafting I started with decoupage, (as I expect a lot of you did) and these days I don't do nearly enough of it. However, I recently bought the newest CD Rom from the House Mouse stable, The Gruffies and Happy Hoppers and have spent a happy evening cutting and sticking and these are what I made.

Really simple DL, easel, desk calendars with a decoupage topper.

I was inspired by these challenges

CD Sunday - DL, Die cuts and Decoupage

Stay safe in this foul weather and see you soon xx

I love decoupage, I find it relaxing to cut out and layer up but don't find much time which is a shame.
These are gorgeous, adorable images and wonderful designs.

Love these Sarah. I find decoupage so relaxing.

Lovely calendars Sarah, they'd make lovely gifts. I have tried decoupage but find it fiddly to cut out all the pieces! It looks fab once it's done though! I just don't have the patience for all that cutting!

These are lovely Sarah, such a great idea for gifts. I find decoupage difficult to cut out as my eyes are not up to scratch. Thanks for sharing them with us at CD Sunday this week.
