forum challenge

Jo set us a challenge to make a set, that was it, a set of anything we fancied, so this is mine.

I have always loved this stamp and I haven't used it for ages so that was my starting point.

I'm finding time a little short at the moment so I thought if I made a few focal pieces I could put cards together quickly when needed.



I have been lucky enough to recieve a couple of awards over the last two days, this one from Jo
and the second one from Debby , a big thankyou to you both

The rules are...
This award is for blogs you really like to visit. As most of the awards go, you are to nominate seven blogs with their blog links, email them, post this award on your blog with the link going back to the person who awards you the award, and then they nominate or award seven blogs.
I love all the blogs I have linked but I will play by the rules and name just 7 so here goes








THE RULES FOR THE JAVABLU AWARD are:1. The winner can put the logo on their blog.2. Link the person you received your award from.3. Nominate at least 5 other blogs.4.Before listing the nominees give a brief reason why you chose them.5. Put links of those blogs on yours.6. Leave a message on the blogs you have nominated.

These blogs I've nominated have all had art on there that has made me go wow at some point or another, in fact these blogs make me go wow pretty much every time I visit them.




The challenge this week on Created By Hand is to use the word Dream within your creation.

I made this last week as I enjoyed making the dragonfly stampboard piece so much I wanted to make another. The stampboard is coloured with alcohol ink and then glimmer mists sprayed over the top, while the glimmer mist was still wet I sprinkled in some UTEE and then melted it, it gave a lovely soft watery effect to the UTEE.


This Thursday it's all about wings

This Thursday is a challenge blog I haven't come across before so when I spoted it on a friends blog I went off to investigate. The theme over there this week is winged things. If you look through my blog you will see I love using two kinds of winged things, dragonflies and butterflies.

This is a two inch piece of stampboard coloured with ink and sprays, and embellished with beads, foil ,UTEE and tiny stars.

The dragonfly stamp is by Paperartsy.

been on my jollies

Last week we packed our car with our tent and the rest of our camping equipment and headed off to Ilfracombe in Devon, a lovely part of the country with lots of secret coves and rugged cliffs.

The weather started off so wonderful, perfect in fact, but that was short lived and the heavens opened on Tuesday and didn't stop so by Thursday we had all had enough so packed everything up and came home. We didn't get the week that we had planned for but at least the five days away were relaxing.

These photos were taken from our campsite in Watermouth cove and also in Watermouth harbour.

Doesn't this cove look inviting, just what we thought so we headed down the very uneven and steep steps that are cut into the cliff face, not too bad going down but coming up, OMG there should be oxygen bottles placed at intervals on the way back up, lol.


La mer

is the theme this week over on Dans ma maison

I used a large list of things to make this collage, including mulberry paper, UTEE, water colour pencils, Glimmer mists and stamps.

thanks for stopping by.
