Mooey Wobbly Topper Slippers and a Baby Jumper and Beanie

Hi all, where is April going, hope you are all well, we have been super busy at work, so not had too much time to play lol!  First I would like to say hello to my new followers over the last few weeks.
For my inpsiration over at the Mad for Markers Store Blog I would like to show you this cute fun image 'Mooey' from Some Odd Girl and is available from the Store here.  I spotted these slippers on the way to get the groceries and the idea popped into my head to make these wobbly toppers, I have used velcro to fasten them on.

I reversed stamped the image, coloured using copics and lots of spica, though it was hard to get a photo due to them being laminated

a closer look, couldn't get a picture of their heads wobbling lol!

Copics and Spics used

Copics, spicas and a huge selection of stamps all available from our Mad for Markers Store

First I would like to spread the word from Dawny's blog who is asking crafters to knit these special knitted jumpers and beanies for babies in India (called the newspaper babies) full details on her blog.  So Rosanna and I got our knitting needles out and this is the set I made and we are still knitting Rosanna's set together (working from each end of the ball of wool lol!) which hopefully will be finished soon.  So girls if you have time please get those needles out. 

Here is Annabel modelling the Jumper and Beanie

Liebster Award from the Lovely Davi

Hi all

The lovely talented Davi gave me this award a few weeks ago, sorry it has taken so long to post but life has been a little busy of late.  I was very lucky to have received this award a while ago so have printed what I found out about the award again

I did a little research and Liebster is German and translates to the English word “dearest”or” favorite”. It’s meant for up-and-coming blogs with less than "200 followers". You need to pass the award onto five bloggers and let them know. I would like to pass this award on to the following inspriational blogs, hope you can check out their beautiful work.

This is the hardest part passing the award on but these are the ladies I would like to pass it on to these inspirational talented ladies:






Thanks for visiting, happy crafting, take careX:)
