Little bird cage hanger ... and....

a couple of other things.....
I made this bird cage at my last demo, it's one of those projects that I will add to along the way..... but here it is as it is at the moment....
 I used one of the bird cage dies from Do Crafts as a base - cut it twice and put some acetate in the middle.
Made some simple flowers using the new circle punch and then made the leaves using one of the new flower dies. I think they make quite effective leaves for this kind of hanger.
 Here is a close up of the flowers.... so easy to make but I really think they finish off your cards and projects.
I got a new phone last weekend.... I wanted a case for it but the shop didn't have what I wanted.... so while Kris ordered me a case (purple of course) and we waited for it to arrive... I made this one for it....
All hand sown and double lined..... I had good fun making it and it keeps my phone safe in my handbag...
The last picture I wanted to show you today is a photo of me.....
But, you might be forgiven for thinking.... really!?
I was playing with my phone..... well you have to don't you?
It's kind of freaky in a very cool kind of way......

Hopefully you all have a great weekend.......
Back soon with more to show you x
