Gone Beady xxx

Hello my lovelies

And how is everyone out there in blogland?? Are any of you still having problems commenting?? I seem to be able to do a few then next thing I can't comment on any more till the next day!! Hopefully blogger will sort it soon!!

Now I am rather a slow this week, this was meant to be posted yesterday but oooopppps forgot!! Sorry Lin!

Anyways, this fortnight at Crafty Cardmakers we have been sent a goody of a challenge by the lovely Jack

BEADS

Sound easy??
I was stumped lol! I mean of course you can make jewellery or add some nice seed beads to a stamped image but what else could I do?? And then I remembered seeing something so cute online using beads and a safety pin!





I loved the idea of the wee butterfly having this wee beady body from a simple safety pin!

I would like to enter this into the following Challenges
Delightful Challenges - Distressed/Vintage
Moving Along With The Times - Things with Wings

Check out my uber talented Design Team for some inspiration!
See you all soon

Hugs Melly xxx

Hiya melly, wow this is super-gorgeous, I love your idea with the body of the butterfly and the safety pin, truly a crafty idea! I was also having big problems with commenting and couldnt leave any at all. If you download Google Chrome it completely solves the prob, I did it and it's fab now. CoB

PS Happy New Year to you! I'm easing myself very gently back into crafting again.
