Saturday Stamper "Trees"

Wwell for one reason or another I have not had a lot of time at the craft table but here I am at 2:40am with nothing better to do lol.

SO I did a quick card for Saturday Stamper. Its simple but I am pleased with it none the less.

Slide Mailer for Crafty Individuals.

I was asked by Malcome at Crafty Individuals, If I could make a slide mailer using their images..

I was more than happy to as when there had been a problem with the postal strike causing my order to be late Crafty Individuals sent me some free slidemailers. And in return for making this and submitting images they also sent some lovely gifts. I am a very happy girl :-)

The main image inside the slide mailer is by crafty Individuals as is the text background stamp. the butterfly wings are also crafty individuals Images that I have tinted with chalk inks.

Cultured Stone Necklace

I bought a couple of packs of these cultured stones with holes drilled in them .. the holes are not drilled the way I wanted them so I have had to twist wire round to hold them in the direction I like.

Also its a bad picture as there is a shine to the stones as well as the metallic marbling added so it kept reflecting the light and I have run out of natural daylight tut!. :-)

Mona with Added Flourish

There is an ongoing "Play it forward" ATC swap on my forum and the theme I was to make for the next Person was "Flourishes" .. this is what I decided on .. the flourishes are held in place with little brads so that they can fold up and fit into the ATC pocket :-)

And The flourish stamps are of course My Purple onion design Stamps. lol

My other Sep Tag swap

The theme for this was Travel and Journey..

I have I am afraid gone with the very familiar style used for this theme by many many people .. I think personaly inspired by Tim Holtz. So nothing very new here. But its a style I am still very fond of!

Blog Hopping

I went wandering round blog land and by one method or another I came accross one called "A Time 4 Art" I dont know the artist and cant find any info not even in the profile but I wanted to acknowledge this blog anyway. Its gorgeous and full of wonderful things.

If the owner reads this by some fluke then I want you to know it is a very very inspiring Blog.

Zuzu and Hammy Cant sleep

Its 4.30am and Daniel (my husband Mike's 16 year old son) and I cant sleep. Me because Mike had to stay overnight at his mum's and Daniel because he just isn't tired.

So Daniel came to the craft table and asked if he could make an ATC (the 3rd ATC he has ever made). We both sat together and made the same ATC almost but they turned out differently.

I chose the colour scheme lime green and brown for very selfish reasons. It is the colour for the monthly colour swap on my forum and this way I get Daniel to take part :-)
I cant stop thinking of chocolate lime sweets now.
Mine is on the left Daniels on the right.
