A small piece of Art for a Friend

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a great weekend. We had a brilliant time yesterday. First we went to the craft show at Newbury Racecourse there I even had a good chat with my friend John Lockwood. I also bought lots of lovely crafty stash. Then we went into Newbury town centre  and met our daughter, her boyfriend and his parents for a meal. Finally we went to Andover to see the plot the house, that our daughter and her boyfriend  are going to buy, is being built. It happens to be near where one of my crafty friends lives and I was able to drop off a little piece of art that she asked for her birthday to be part of a collage in her craft room.

As it has already been shared on Facebook I am sharing the little piece of art on my blog today.

I was a bit naughty and ordered the Double Pierced Squares and Rectangles set B to go with set A which I already had. They came on Friday and I couldn't resist a play. Can you see them in the mats and layers I created. 

I cut the window from the white mat then I embossed it with a mask and inked through the mask to make the wall. I reinserted the frame and behind the window I stuck the patterned and the cats. 

I used a Spellbinder die set to create the flower pot and flowers. 

I used another Spellbinder die to cut this and I inked through it before I took it out for the die. The sentiment was cut with some Tattered Lace dies. 

Here I am with John Lockwood. You know his cards look even better when you see them in the flesh. 

This is Wendy Kadzilo who organises the Craft Show at Newbury Racecourse. On the way in after you have paid you are given a Goody Bag that has all sorts of Crafty Goodies in it. She is a lovely lady and wasn't really keen to have her photo taken. 

I think my friend liked her piece of art. I do hope she gets a lot more to make the collage in he Craft Room. 

I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
