Let's face it!

Thought I'd pop on some of my 'Let's face it' ATC's that I did for Chriss' monthly challenge over on Thanks Chriss for emailing me the piccies. I had a go at doing something I hadn't tried before. I used pictures from magazines, acrylic paints, alphabet stamps and sparkly gems and just kind of went for it!

I'm still here!

I have neglected my blog a little over the last few weeks - I've been so busy at work and tired! Hate those clocks changing! I've been doing some crafting - mainly Christmas cards and playing with the fab Jolly Nation TSV I bought from QVC a few weeks ago. I have also had the mamouth task of sorting out all my craft things in the spare room into plastic boxes. I'm not sure how long things will stay organised but I'll post some piccies when I've finished my labels! xx

Leonie's challenge

This weeks challenge from Leonie is 'Objects of Desire.'

Living in a seaside town, I've always loved the sea so chose these images from As I missed last weeks stripey challenge I started with some stripey paper, (thank you to my crafty friend Mary for sending it to me!), in a colour scheme I adore. I used a jelly fish stamp I got at a car boot sale last week for 20p, with a blue ink pad to stamp over the paper. I inked around the images, stuck on some matching ribbon and added some gems and a silver star fish. I coloured in some peel off letters in a co-ordinating colour to spell 'the sea'.
