The Eastwind shrink plastic handbag charm

it is time for another challenge over at left of center challenges.
The theme this fortnight is Girly, I am not very girly so was thinking outside the box.
In the end I decided to make a handbag charm/keyring, it was my first time using shrink plastic so took a few attempts. If you decide to print on shrink plastic and it is smooth both sides (some have a scratchy back), sand it with a fine sand paper first in both directions.
The sponsors are The Eastwind  and Sassy studios.
I choose an image from The Eastwind , she is called Lucy Loo.

Baby boy card

My cousin had a baby boy recently, I made this card from a kanban kit I had forgotten about so glad I found it again. The letters are raised with foam pads (run out of my beloved pinflair :( .) although the picture doesn't really show it.
I cut a large circle with my Joy trouvaille and folded it in half for the card to rock.

Wedding cards

I was recently asked to make two wedding cards,
and while looking through my mass of stash I came across lots of old kanban kits. I was amazed I still had so much of it, at one point every card I made had kanban on. 
Both the base cards where made with pearlesnt cardstock one white and one ivory. 
Hope you like them and I will have more kanban makes to show again soon, well it would be crazy not to use them now I have found them again.

Chainmaille Bracelet

Hi its time for another challenge over at Just for fun challenge blog,
the theme this month is lace and or ribbons.
I decided to learn something new and decided 
that something would be chainmaille.
After a few Youtube videos and picture tutorials I set to work,
I then decided to make it into a bracelet.
To do this I added some black lace and silver plated chain.
It needed something a little more so that is where the little skull charm came in,
I mean who doesn't like little skulls with cute flowers eh.
Its a very easy to learn process, would be great if some of you have a go and let me know how you get on.
