For Susan & Tracey

Yes the girls challenged me to make some acrylic stamps with my cricut machine, so I did. The bird and the word 'beautiful" are from the home decor cart. Don't know why I did the bird when i could have done a thousand other things but there you go. I must say this is not my favourite LO and although i tried lots of different things nothing seemed right. (I was getting a bit carried away and I think i was putting more emphasis on my artwork than the photos -if you get what i mean) so i took most of the embellishments of and this is it. I still have to put some journalling on it. The cute roses are from the Walk in My Garden cartridge for the cricut machine. Now here are the Yo-Yo's or Suffolk Puffs and whatever else they are called. I am making about another 30 or so to go on a small tablecloth that I am working on (and have been working on for the last 2 years).
This is one of the many things that you can do with them. I made this tablecloth about 5 years ago and out of everything I have made I must say that it is one of my favourites (it's also Andrew's fav as well) I am sorry that I cant give the designer their rightful kudos as I cant remember where I got the pattern from -I cant even find the pattern.

I must also thank Karen my friend in Port Hedland who taught me how to make these cute things and actually if it wasn't for Karen I probably would not be doing anything crafty at all.
So that's my lot for today.
Have a good week.

I seriously think you are showing off with those suffolk puffs LOL! They are going to look stunning on your tablecloth, can't wait to see how it all comes together.
The whole acrylic stamp thing is a bit amazing...the things you can do! Very impressive.
Hope you are feeling better today xxx

I didn't realise you could make your own stamps out of cricut machines! (not that I need to get addicted to another type of craft!) Love your yo - yo's - your cloth looks like the perfect project for them.
