it's been a busy weekend....

It's been a little while since I made an ATC
and as it is Georgia's and my special weekend
I thought I'd make her one for her collection.
It's a dark & overcast this afternoon so it's hard to capture
the colour and the texture,
but it has lots of layers of Stitching, Ink, paint & rub-on's
and is a little more pink and pearly than it appears in this photo and she loves it :)
Of course a Girly weekend wouldn't be complete without a trip to the markets,
now would it!
We both fell in love with these butterfly brooches we found at our local market
and we had to have a 'mummy & me' pair :)

I've been following the very talented Katia Donohoe for a little while now through her blog Plushka's craft blog she makes the most gorgeous items, I was really quite chuffed to find that she had been featured in Septembers issue of Notebook Magazine. Along with her feature there was instructions for making one of her sweet little 'owl babies' when I showed this to Georgia she immediately wanted it on the list for our girly weekend.

Georgia only needed a little help with stitching some of the smaller pieces but apart from that she did everything else and is already hooked on making softies!

Thank you so much Katia it was fun to watch Georgia create with so much excitement as her little owl baby came together :)

If you'd like to be inspired by Katia
Here is her Blog Plushka's craft blog

Thanks for visiting and sharing our Girly weekend!
♥ Gillian & Georgia :)
