Craft My Life All Crafts Challenge: 2

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with my new All Crafts Challenge, a challenge to encourage you to make and show off your non card and scrapbook layouts-so I want to see anything else, Altered items, Knitting, Home Decor, Painting etc etc :-)
Last challenge got off to a wonderful start with some really fantastic projects-see here for the winners post :-)
This challenge was started as a place to show the other fabulous creations which often dont fit in other challenges which is a real shame and is a chance for you to show off your lovely projects. Also the idea is for you to be inspired and meet other crafty friends on the way-I always encourage those who enter to visit the other entries and let them know what you think :-)

I will choose entries to showcase throughout the challenge with a link to your blog to show the talent out there and at the end of the challenge I will pick my top three and a random winner using This month my prize is a Forever Friends Black and Gold Stamp set, oh so cute! :-)

My only rules for this challenge are to follow my blog, and link your creation to this post using mr linky below. And if you feel kind I would love you to take my badge above and link to here from your blog to spread the word about my new challenge :-)

My Creation for this challenge is this blanket for my friend. She has been poorly so I thought for her birthday I would make her something comforting for when she felt bad and something which would make her smile :-) The logo is from a band, Alkaline Trio, we both love and where we became friends through their fan club. 
I cut the logo freehand from felt and then sewed the heartskulls on each corner of a red fleece blanket. 
It was quite difficult to get photos of but she was very pleased with it which made me smile :-)

Certainly something a little bit different! 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

I cant wait to see your entries and remember any crafts other than cards or scrapbooking, this is an opportunity for you to shine with your other fabulous creations :-)

An exciting new challenge for all my crafty friends!

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to announce something new for my blog that I hope you will all get involved in! :-) I quite often make items which don't fit into a 'card or scrapbook' page category and often struggle to find places to show these in blogland. I thought I would remedy this by making a new two monthly 'Anything goes' challenge where we can all inspire each other with the different crafts we have been playing with! :-) So I mean jewellery, altered items, knitting, etc etc.

I will choose items to showcase on my blog throughout the challenge with a link to your blog to show the talent out there and hold a draw every couple of months of all the entries to win prizes-this first challenge will be sponsored by the wonderful Sarah Hurley-you can drool over all her lovely items at her etsy store here!
I encourage all of you to pop by each others blogs for some fabulous ideas, fun and mostly to meet other like minded crafters and hopeful…

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
