NEW! Alphabet Challenge Blog...B is for .........

Every Friday we will be setting a new Challenge using the letters of the alphabet. You can make any handmade craft item you like using the current weeks letter, either as the theme, the item, or the technique you use. I hope you enjoy joining in and ......... it's just for fun!

I came across this wonderful blog Alphabet Challenge blog when I was blog hopping on Thursday evening only to discover wk2 was about to be posted the morning after!

Over the weekend I've managed to make something for the letters A & B. I've decided to make all my letters each week into twinchies & hopefully the topic I choose will be something that I like or hold dear - so my 3 kids can see what was going through their mum's mind in 2009. I am planning to put all my twinchies onto one big canvas so I can hang it on the wall. I haven't decided yet whether to buy a canvas now or wait until I've finished? Knowing me I think I should wait just in case I don't finish!!!

B is for .......................... butterflies.

I have always been amazed by butterflies & can remember having a Butterfly I Spy book as a child.

I am so pleased with how this twinchie turned out. I am hoping to learn & try out new to me technique's as I go along. That's one of the reason's I've decided to take on the challenges. I spent ages rambling on saying what I'd done & then deleted it - didn't want to bore you all. Everyone I know is more experienced than me & can probably work out what I've done anyway!! I have used a couple of gorgeous images from Crafty Individuals.

A is for ........................ Angel.
I'd be lost without my guardian angels right now. Enough said!
Thanks for looking.
