Good Friday cross craft

I wasnt going to blog tonight.. its Good Friday.
But I wanted to show you an amazing sight I saw tonight, and also the great little craft I did with Jumeirah today. I found this craft at Teachkidsart yesterday and Jumeirah was totally taken by it she wanted to do it too. Its really simple, but so so effective.


We started with a foam sheet ( you can use a foam tray that you get from the fruit shop) and cut out the shape of a cross.


Using foil, we covered the cross but kept the foil really flat and smooth.


I gave Jumeirah a scrapbooking tool used for embossing but you could use a ball point pen or even a pencil for this craft.


Then she drew a pattern which embossed into the foil and foam.





( The pattern is very similar to the Teach kids art example as she really liked the hearts and tree idea). It turned out absolutely beautiful and ist now hung in the kitchen.


I didnt realise something so simple would turn out so eye catching.


Tonight, hubbin called me outside to view the lightning that was caught in a very angry cloud.

He told me to go to the lighthouse so I could go try and get a photo....


Tonight, on Good Friday

The Heavens dared us to try and ignore


the perfect timing


of a party like this :)


Happy Easter.. see you on Tuesday!
