Charisma Cardz -Something Not Meant for Crafting

Good morning, new challenge time at Charisma Cardz, and this fortnight our challenge is to use 'Something Not Meant for Crafting'.  This could be anything you like eg. an empty container, a bottle top, tin foil, greaseproof paper, a wrapper...........
Here is a project I actually did a while ago, I blinged up a pair of Ugg styley boots (a whopping £5 from Primarni!) for my youngest daughter.  Who doesn't love a bit of bling heh?  Obviously the picture shows a before and after boot lol I didn't leave them like this!!  I used nearly 1000 rhinestones!
I couldn't really pick up the detail in the photo's but they really do sparkle! 
I also did a pair of tan ones, plainer than the ones above for my eldest daughter but this is the only photo I can find of them, just of the heels, but I randomly gemmed all over the boots to!!  These ones took well over 1000 gems to finish!
For all sponsor and prize details please check out the blog, and you can also see what other clever ideas the rest of the girls came up with for their examples!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Well Valentine's Day is upon us, and although we'd bought cards (yes indeed I said bought lol!) I decided to make a card for my eldest daughter to give to her 'boyfriend' they're only 11 & 10!  I love these personalised prints and we chose the words that describe their friendship.
I then got a message from my sister asking if I could make one for my nephew to give to his 'girlfriend'! 
and one for her to give to her other half!
tonight I've also made an additional one for hubby which I've stowed away in his lunchbox along with various heart shaped bakes which I've also made today, and the traditional valentines choccies hidden in between sandwiches, cake etc!  and also made one for mum & dad!
So how ever you are spending the day, I hope it's happy!
