Bootcamp Day 10 and Birthday Card

The other day when I was doing this Creative Bootcamp project, I said I 'don't do ornaments' and only thought I had the one, the paperweight I showed you.  Well today, I was up in the attic and found this model I made about 15 years ago out of air drying clay:

It's perfect for today's Creative Bootcamp theme, 'Full-bodied':

Painted with good old poster paint and glossy varnish!
When I was up in the attic, I couldn't resist doing some more sorting and tidying and so it only left a little time for crafting tonight.  But before I go on, if you are one of my bestest mates who I go for a coffee with on Thursday mornings, then no peaking! I'm working on your birthday card (y'know who you are!):

The photo hasn't shown it very well but both the cup and the dark brown background have been swirl embossed using a Cuttlebug.  The idea came from the new range of Kanban Coffee papers.  

When it is this friend's birthday at the end of the month, a big group of us are going camping for the weekend , we go every year, and its always great fun! 

See you tomorrow,

Yes, Lou and Mel, she was fun to make, and I quite fancy making some more/others.

Kandi, I nearly spat out my tea! You did make me laugh as I was imagining you in that flowery dress. (Incidently, she came purely from my imagination) :-)
