Back to School

August 30th 2012
Oops I'm a bit late posting my post for the new Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge this week!!! Our theme is "Back to School" and we have a great new sponsor for this week "Back to Paper" who have provided the image I have used for my ATC along with a prize for this weeks winner! We would love you to join us this week - last week we had a great amount of entries so we can't wait to see your creations for this new challenge!!

I've used pages from an old text book I had along with some graph paper and some cool little collage rules I have had for ages & just a touch of red!!!

I'm also entering this at the new Do You Stack Up Challenge as they also have a Back to School Theme!

Sandy Beaches...

August 29th 2012

I can't believe it's the last week of August already - the time is just flying and it's time for our Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Hop!!

A new Sketch Challenge this week at Jacksons Digital Expressions - you can find all the details at the challenge blog. For my card I have turned the sketch upside down and based my layout on that. Background and palm tree are serviettes/napkins - I thought they were perfect for the great "Profile" Digital Stamp from Robert Jackson.

Also this week all of the DT want to wish Robert a very Happy Birthday!!!!

Going Batty!

August 26th 2012

I've made this 4 x 4 for the current challenge at Smudgy Antics "Itsy Bitsy Spider" - the idea is to turn a Nursery Rhyme into something more spooky!!! I've used a Nursery Rhyme from my "Mother Goose" Nursery Rhyme Book which I got in 1971 when I was 3 years old - I've never been able to part with this book!!

Bat, bat, come under my hat.
And I'll give you a slice of bacon;
And when I bake, I'll give you a cake,
If I am not mistaken.

Masked woman and hat images are from June at Dezinaworld and I've added some bat punchies!

You're a Hoot!

August 25th 2012

Welcome Baby

August 5th 2012

A Day for Daisies Blog has a new challenge "Use Fabric or Fibres" and I have this cute little card I made for a babay shower gift using one of ADFD Gorgeous Mother & Baby images - I just love this image - so soft and nurturing hence the coloours I chose to create the card with. I have added pieces of "muslin" to the card behind the image and also to make a bow along with some little safety pins. This was one of those cards I loved so much that I didn't want to give it away but I know the "expectant mother" I gave it to appreciated it!
