Flying by?

Hi Everyone, my DT project for

I was quite excited with this challenge and decided to use a file I have had since 2015, but not used. Naughty me LOL. However in the end I was thrilled with the result, it could be made in lots of colours for each element, but I decided on plain old black and white. I was thrilled with the end result and happily so were hubby and son, who has actually put it up in his room. - Result!

3D Bi plane -  SVG Attic
Cameo Silhouette 2
card - Dovecraft Premier cardstock

This is how it looked with just a part put together, some are quite tiny. I presume to give strength, a few are doubled up, a very clever design, but fiddly to put together, this is picture heavy!

Hi Everyone, a card today I made for the Outlawz sketch challenge I have been
looking through some of my thousands of files and I have so many that I haven't used, I decided to start using the ones I haven't. This card is made mostly with freebies, I'm such a cheapskate! BUT it did take time, so maybe that's more important? I'll let you decide LOL.

coloured in PS

Milk Carton boxes

Hi Everyone 2 little boxes today, I was looking through my files for a box, when a follower email came through, with just what I was looking for, thanks Carol. I cased them LOL. I thought it a wonderful idea and so did my eldest SiL, I gave them to her for her 82nd birthday. One with some expensive choccies in the the bigger box and the other with a Cadbury's creme egg. I think she was more thrilled with the egg LOL.
