My LATEST Creation :) (am well chuffed lol)

hehehee as I said... am well chuffed with this... I wanted to make my bezzie mate something special for her 60th birthday which is the same day as my son's 21st... (3rd Dec.) lol... she already told me not to 'buy' her anything (she knows my money situation & would hate me 'wasting' any lol)... I got some info from one of her daughter's re: specific colour lol... so I decided to make her a jewellery box using matchboxes.... 
I didn't have a tutorial to follow so just did my own thing...
this is what I created :)



I hope she likes it lol...
I will get her daughter's opinion on it as soon as I can email her the link lol
I think it turned out pretty good considering lol
What do you think?? TFL :)

My Latest Matchbox AC :)

One of my niece's (Kadey & Kyra's Mum) Katy has a b/f called Ben... Ben has a sister called Katie who has a son called Jack... well.... it seems Katie loved the 'Winnie the Pooh' & the 'Pepper Pig' AC's I did for my great-niece's so much that she asked me to make a 'Fireman Sam' AC for her son Jack... I did Google images but there were hardly any of Fireman Sam alone or decent sized images... so I basically had to re-draw these images especially from colouring pages & images that 'were' available lol.... 
anyways... this is what I created...


I woz kinda annoyed that I didn't have any dark blue Xmas card/paper to use for this AC but am sure Katie & Jack will still love it (I hope so anyways lol)... I wanted it to be dark blue & yellow coz of his uniform lol... I shoulda shown one of the other sides as they are alternated with yellow drawers with blue numbers & blue brads lol...  there is always a method to my madness ya see ;) hehehehe
Thanx for stopping by & TFL :)

Hope she likes em... here they are..........
