Well Liannes menu turned out to be a bit more in this household, everybody got involved!!
The day i decided to make my menu, our daughter was home sick. My menu involved buttons and when i got the jar out, Maddison decided she would sort them into colours and make a few pictures along the way. It kept her occupied for a good couple of hours, and my buttons are now colour coded into 10 different packets!!
This is what she made....
Okay so my menu was:-
To make a card
brown, orange and green colour combination
2 patterned papers
plain cardstock optional extra
This is what I came up with
I made this shortly after i got home from the Craft and Quilt Fair and i was hanging out to play with my new little cutter
I love this new toy!! It was great for cutting my fabric grass, and my wavy line on my middle orangey piece of PP. I used my circle squeeze punches for my flower bases and attached my button layers with glossy accents. My "beauty" embellishement was hand drawn and hand cut with my Fiskars micro tip scissors, great for all the little inbetween fidly bits.
Now i was feeling a little more creative the next day and decided that i didn't want to give my card away, that i would make it into a little frame. So sticking to my rustic colours i gave instructions to Chris to look for a piece of old timber to make a frame for my card, he was on his way to the dump with hubby, i was sure they could find a piece of recycled timber.
Sure enough they did and Chris made a rustic, not too precise with the measurements frame, first time he's used a mitre box, i think he did very well. This is going to live above the toilet in our bathroom which is white and terracotta!! (Not sure about the "beauty" in the toilet, but hey, the colours match LOL!! ;0)
Thats it from me, thanks for stopping by today, plllleeeennnty of inspiration floating around here so why not get in on the act and shoot Lianne an email and get a menu of your own to play with!!
HAPPY WEEKEND TO YOU
