Welcome to Free on Friday, I have had a very mixed week. I spent considerable time designing a mini album at the beginning of the week only to find it didn't work, which was quite disheartening. I threw the result away and watched a few more album tutorials. I came upon the answer quite unexpectedly while following a blog hop in which there was some amazing mixed media work. whilst exploring the blogs I came across an album design very similar to the one I had tried and the reason mine didn't work was suddenly very clear! So I shall have another go:)
My daughter asked me to create an Easter hat for my grandson who is four. Here is the result:
I made an Easter card too:

On to today's free images. It is St Patrick's Day tomorrow and I hope you like the selection I have put together for you.
The frogs in my garden have been croaking merrily and my ponds are full of frogspawn. It has rained so much yesterday and today I will not be surprised if they lay eggs in the wet areas of the lawn! We may be in for some more snow over the weekend, the frog spawn should be safe as long as the temperature does drop too low for too long. We even have some tadpoles left from last year, I imagine they will be the first to leave the pond. Thank you for visiting, take care till next time x

A friend of ours is retiring and I wanted to make something special. He loves taking photographs of aeroplanes. So I searched for aeroplane colouring pages, sized them to fit, did a little colouring and this is the result. It is the first time I have tried one of these cards, I got the template free in a magazine. I was running out of time and I wanted to do a card for my mother in law. I have had these beautiful card blanks from Create and Craft for several years. I added the sticker at the bottom right and added some ribbon and the word "On Mother's Day With Love" on the right.
The weather here has warmed up and the snow has all but disappeared from the garden, spring is on it's way :) Join me for Free on Friday, until then take care x

Today I have a Christmas card from Tuck Company. The first picture is the top of the card, it opened out by lifting the four flaps, which revealed the second image, the inside. The third image is the back of the card. A card for leaning against the wall, instead of standing up by itself. I love the subtle colouring of this card. I have tidied up the images, apart from the Christmas verse, the images could be used for any occasion. They are all 6 x 6 inches.
If you use any of my images I would love to see what you have made. Send your photographs to the email at the top of the page, without the spaces of course.

Then I made some digital backgrounds, which I was very happy with.
I made a suitcase for the bunny to sit on out of digital paper, and other bits that I customised. I think I might try making a stacking set!
The theme for this card was "sunshine" which is always good to see whatever the time of year. Join me for Free on Friday tomorrow and if the weather conditions are bad where you are, keep warm x

I have been sorting out some fabric and part finished crafts from when I was working with the elderly. I covered the folder on the left with two cushion covers (the craft was to decorate that plain patch you can see). I cut off the long edge on both covers and attached them together by hand sewing while they were in position on the folder. Before I sewed them together I covered the cardboard cover with scraps of fleece fabric to give some padding. I finished with 3 buttons on the spine. For the inside of the folder I made some pages with 12 x 12 paper and some pocket pages.
I bought a Tim Holtz Stamping Platform a week or so ago. The cover was an additional expense so I thought I would make my own. Using some left over bags I made for my elderly craft group, I made a bag with double layers of that material and some soft furry fabric. The finished bag fits in a calico bag I have had for some time but not used.
I bought some pocket pages some time ago to store small images in. I kept them in a storage box, but every time I tried to go through them the images kept falling out. I store the bigger images in a Papermania folder, but the images tend to gall to the bottom making it bulky. So for my padded folder and the folder above I made my pages by scoring 12 x 12 paper at 10 inches for the top and 9 inches for the side. Then I stuck the pocket page on top and punched two holes along the side. The pocket page does show at the bottom, but I suppose I could have joined two pieces of card together. Then the flaps are folded over making the images more secure and easier to look through.
I hope that wasn't totally confusing!
Now for today's freebies:
I hope you like these pretty young ladies.
Until next time, take care x
