Morning guys,I apologize for my late DT post to my teamies,but I have had the most awful toothache,for the last week,went to the dentist as emergency. He gave me some antibiotics,which did not work. Therefore I had to go back yesterday for another emergency appointment as the pain was unbearable it turned out that I had a large abscess and it had gone into my bones,in my mouth. So he had to put me to sleep,and remove it. I am now on,400mg of antibiotics instead of 75mg. I am still very sore,and if I drink anything I have to use a straw,as its still painful. But never mind,now here is my DT project for this week.

The theme this week is Charming,so I altered this frame using,rub and buff from TCP . Its now my best work as not been,well.

Film Inspired

Hi Guys,this week at That Craft Place the theme is Film Inspired,well I thought long and hard about this.

And I came up with this..........

Around the world in 80 Days

I took a piece of Chipboard,painted it with Gesso around the sides,then took some gesso mixed with salt,made it into a paste,then added it to the sides of the chipboard.

Then before it had settled,I tore some,paper and placed it underneath the paste.Then added some crackle paste,then when dry brushed some,black paint over it.

The lady is from a CD I have,I then added some,flakes to the balloons,then decoupaged some of them. Then finished off with one of TCP film strips.

So if you would like to play along at That Craft place,the link is HERE

Also I have a wee group on FB and I started a book swap were,ten,of the girls choose a theme for there books,then each member made a page each. These were then all sent to me,and I am binding them for them and sending them back to each member of the group.

Here is one of them I designed all the covers,for the girls this one is fantasy which contains 10 pages from all the girls of Fantasy.

Also this is a card,I have made using one of Lisa's new digital images over at That Craft Place

Hi guys,well I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas I know I did.
My children,were amazing talk about surprised,my son bought me a sewing machine,and my daughter bought me a brand new Nikon camera,talk about spoilt I was so chuffed.

I am so lucky to have 2 amazing children,here is one of the pictures I have taken with my new camera. This was taken,through my window,and he was on the other side of my garden.

Now for That Craft Place DT time,and the theme this week is Monochromatic.  So I decided to make a bag,now I have never ever had a sewing machine before,and never learned to sew at all. So I downloaded a pattern from the internet,looked at it and it made no sense to me at all,so it went in the bin.

So I decided to take one of my shopping bags,and try and copy that,so this is how it turned out not perfect I know but its my very first go.

This is the front of the bag had just enough to make a tiny pocket.

This is the other side of the bag.
 So if you would like to see what the rest of the DT have done and play in our first challenge of 2015 please go HERE.

And happy new year to each and everyone of you 
hugs Cherylxxxxx

Back with news and my DT project

Morning guys well its been a long and worrying week,but thankfully,now on the mend.

I went to the hospital last Friday just for a scan,but as I was bleeding heavily at the time,they decided to do a bi- opsy which meant waiting for 5 days for the results.  They did tell me,due to me being on HRT and my age it could be cancer so you know how worried I have been,  Anyway during the scan,I was in a lot of pain thinking it was due to bleeding but they found some cysts on my ovaries.

Anyway they rang me on Friday to say I am fine,no cancer to say it was  relief was an understatement,I still have to go back to the hospital after Christmas due to the,cysts they may get bigger she said and may need to have a full hysterectomy but I can handle that.  I have an appointment with my GP on Tuesday to talk about my blood,and lack of iron,but hopefully will get it all sorted soon.

 So I wanted to thank you all for your pateience with me,so been a rough time,but now I am back on the mend will be able to pop over soon.

I have one more bit of Fantastic news my darling Daughter Lisa is,12 weeks pregnant,never thinking she was getting there bless her,so please meet my first grandson,or granddaughter,

Now I am so excited,at least now I can concentrate on my,family me being a granny how super cool is that.

Okay sorry,now for my DT project over at That Craft place the theme again this week is anything goes,and I made this for my daughters best friend for Christmas one of Lisa's fab owls she sells in her shop.

I covered the owl in a stencil,using texture paste gold,then I used some medium to seal it all,then added the numbers,for the clock,added some tiny jewels in the center of the flowers.

So if you would like to play in our challenge this week,please pop over HERE love hugs to you all,and thank you for staying with me,hugs Cherylxxxxxx
