Mary had a Little Lamb or Two............

Hi, Gingersnaps theme this month is Down on the Farm and this week we were asked to use Raffia as its the Supply Challenge..........
I have to tell you I made loads of things with Raffia but somehow they managed to look pretty awful so for my DT piece I created a Rustic Hanging and Inked the Raffia for the hanging part.........

Products used: Freebie picture by Bumble Buttons, loving this picture........Various Paints, FlowerSoft soaked in alcohol ink, Crackle Paint, Plumbers Mesh and Corrugated card (recycled) sorry don't know who made the stamps.........

This card shows the flower I created partly with Raffia, not great is it.......still never mind.........lol
Products used:  Embossing Folder, freebie backing paper, Gold Stickles, 3D Gloss on the Owl which is by Inkadinkado and coloured with Promarkers.

I would like to enter 'Mary had a Little Lamb or Two' for the Sir Stampalot Challenge this month.

The main thing with Gingersnaps is you create to have fun, so hopefully we will see you over there.  The rest of the DT and Guest Artists have come up with some fab ideas...........  Am off to have lunch with my girlfriends now and hope to see you later.  Take care, Hugs Annette xx
