Here is a revamped version of a fridge magnet I made some time ago.

I covered a piece of wood with a left over piece of K and Co paper and then used parchment paper to print out the saying. The parchment is stuck onto some thick cardboard.

The beaded Angel is a copy of a similar one that my Mum brought me back from Prague. (Shameless aren't I? lol) This was the second attempt at making one of these angels and I really enjoyed doing it, so have made another at the same time for my stash!

She's just attached with a piece of ribbon and a star brad. This is a replacement for the original one that sadly has faded on the front of my friend's refrigerator door. I hope she likes it!
There is a brand new challenge blog called Crafts and Me which started this week. The challenges are set every two weeks on a Wednesday and their first theme is 'Wings', so I have submitted my little magnet into the pot!
