Felted Autumn Sprite


I hope everyone is safe and well.  Today I am sharing something a little different.  This is my second fairy kit from The Makerss.  In August I made the Sunflower Fairy for my niece (photo below if you missed it) and September was the Autumn Sprite, which of course I am keeping for myself as I simply love autumn!  You can subscribe to the fairy box and plus two other boxes here The Makerss (This is not an affiliate link.) 

This sprite kit comes with one toadstool but the basket and extra toadstools are from my stash, the leaves are from my crafting penpal in Holland, and the knitted pumpkin and felted acorns are from a swap a few years ago.

Anniversary card for my husband


This is the wedding anniversary card I made my hubby, not your typical anniversary card but it fits us and our sense of humour perfectly.  My hubby and I are big fans of Deadpool and there are so many funny quotes in the movies so I adapted one and also printed an image of Deadpool off the internet.
