30 days of creativity – day 10 – Dr Who card

A friend asked me to make a Dr Who birthday card for her nephew.
The images came from free colouring pages on t’internet, which I coloured with promarkers.


I decided to make the card 3D by cutting the door of the Tardis open and popping the little Matt Smith in the doorway. I chose spangly background card and printed the words on my computer using a free Doctor Who style font.

30 days of creativity – day 9 – zombie bag

(Yes, another zombie thing – I like zombies, ok?)


I bought the fabric on ebay before Christmas because I thought it was marvellous.

As usual I didn’t have a pattern or a plan. I just made it up as I went along. Usually that turns out ok.

Although I must admit lack of planning has resulted in a bag full of “handmade charm.” Or wonky bits. I prefer handmade charm.
