Loves the nieces to pieces

It's 2 of my nieces birthdays in March.  Abi is 7 and Georgia is 13.  I wanted to make an alternative to a birthday card for them, so created these.  My first attempt at altering!

I found these wall hangings in Home bargains for 99p.  They are MDF with the most awful tropical pictures on them but they are nice and square so would be easy to alter/cover.  I used some plastic Hello Kitty stickers for Abi's and some ready made large embellishments for Goergia's also bought in one of the bargain stores.  I added Craftwork card and Pink Petticoat Papers, a few embellishments and their names.  I am pleased with them and they probably cost about £2.50 to make.  They look so pretty.
I've had some time to craft today, managed to make a couple of ATC's and am now covered with green alcohol ink.  I decided to have a go at vintage which isn't my style, and still isn't after todays efforts.  Still it was fun to play.  I also made a couple of post it note holders for the fair in July.  More on that another time.  Tomorrow there's a craft fair at Washington, so I'll do a bit browsing.  Debbie Moore was there last year so I am hoping she'll be demonstrating again.  Happy Saturday folks, hope you aren't on a diet and can enjoy a glass of wine and some chocolate.
Catcha later.
