Beady Eyed

Stap me vitals! I just can't believe how long this winter is dragging on.  The temperature here down south has not crept above zero for a few days now and snow is ever present in the air.  What's a girl to do on her days off but stay in the warm and craft.

This week's challenge from Less Is More is USE BEADS!  Blimey, not the easiest or most popular of challenges judging by the comments I've read but after scraping together the few measly beads I've had in my stash since time began, I thought I'd give it a crack.

 I scored a border around the card and made the owl with various punched circles, I added a computer generated sentiment and 'beady' eyes.  

Changing the subject completely now, here are last weeks chazza scores.

  Tea towel 1981 75p
 (completely on the wonk but didn't notice in the shop as it was folded in half on a hanger.) 

Scarf 75p

I've got a crafty idea for something else later, so if all goes to plan I may have another creation to show you tomorrow.  Can you stand the excitement?



  1. Am loving your card what a cool idea. Those eyes made from beads are just brilliant. Love the colour of that scarf :)

    I had a few days off and the snow hit, was the perfect excuse to stay in my craft room. Loved every minute of it :)

  2. A wonderful creation - such a cute owl - love those beady eyes. Lynn x

  3. Brilliant card Fiona!

    Love the scarf too!

  4. Love the beady blue owl, your cards are amazing!
    Bought a similar kind of tea towel recently with the sights of Belfast on it - send any I find to my sister who makes great bags out of them.
    Looking forward to the crafty reveal!

  5. Just love that card Fiona. Such a fabulous idea and the owl is so cute.
    Great chazza bargains too even if on the wonk lol
    Freezing down here too and I'm fed up with washing the winter woollies as they take an age to dry!
    Hugs, Fliss xx
