My dad's knitted tank!

I made this for dad a few years ago & kept forgetting to take pictures of it.
Its one of my very first knitting patterns. I made it from looking at a picture in one of his magazines. My dad likes military modelling....he makes tanks & other things.
I guess crafting runs in the family!!!

Couple of card orders

from little girl to her daddy

to a gardening/allotment lover from his wife
Loving the forever friends toppers aren't they great.
These have to be the easiest two cards for men I have done!

Another gift box ...these are proving to be very popular

order from a friend for her friend's little girl Daisy!

Another baby gift box & another challenge or two!

I have made this very sweet gift box for an order for a Christening present.
I haven't quite finished the inside of the box yet as I was awaiting baby details.
I am entering the card into two challenges
Moving along with the times - sketch
Crafty creations - baby

Lots of people ask about my gift boxes. They are black magnetic fastening boxes I have acquired from a friend. So when they've gone they're gone!!
