My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Fathers day gift

There's nothing quite like a homemade gift for Fathers day especially for the man who has everything.  My Dad like many, is partial to a sweetie or two while he watches T.V. of an evening so I decided to buy some of his favourites and use some recycled coffee jars to turn  into nice containers to hold them.

I designed and printed out some labels and tags in colours I thought he would like.....

then filled the jars with Everton mints and liquorice.

I then decided it would be nice if he had a co-ordinating card.

Hope your Dad has a lovely Fathers day too.
