Create Your Day with love from the homefront.

Hello everyone I`m back again and so excited to be sharing my 1st post with you as a member of Susan K Weckessers first ever Design Team, it is an honour and a privilege to be creating with such wonderful talented ladies. 
 Below are the beautiful words of inspiration we were given to spark our creativity this month -
 Autumn is the party dress Mother Nature dons prior to wrapping herself in white blankets for a long winters nap.
I have such happy memories off walking to school,all wrapped up snug against the nip in the air,rustling through all the jewel coloured leaves that had fallen from the trees.

Sooo I gathered together some Autumn coloured felt,scissors,bondaweb and the stamps I fell in love with Unity-Susan K Weckesser`s Create your Day stamp set.
Next I came up with a plan and thought you might like a peek...
Now the fun part stamping and cutting...
 
Using bondaweb is so easy,I just cut it to size and popped it on the back of the felt shapes,then with your iron on a moderate setting run the iron over for about 1minute.{make sure the steam setting is turned off}
I stamped the house twice so that I could piece it together.
Once all the felt was fixed in place I thought why not add a little of my wonky tonky stitching for that little touch of whimsy and just went for it.
Still needed that little extra something soooo I had a root around my stash and discovered these tiny beads,scattered and glued in place with glossy accents and then mounted onto another piece of felt .
So what exactly is it now I hear you cry?
Well I can tell you that the box once held a candle and is now full off . . . . .nooo I can`t tell you because this handmade gift is going to a new home as part of Susan`s Christmas Love Campaign and I want what`s inside to be kept as a surprise.
I hope you will join in with this heartfelt cause and touch the hearts of others,you can find out more by clicking HERE.
Till next time
Hugs
