Rainbow Ladys Challenge #202 On the street where you live

This week over at Rainbow Ladys Challenge the theme is "on the street where you live". I am lucky enough to live at the seaside, in an art deco house that still has many of it's orginal features. We even have the orginal lightfittings. I think (lol) that this is a crafty individuals stamp, sorry if its not, that I've coloured using Lyra Polycolour pencils. Haven't played with those for a while. The BP is a piece of K&Co from a huge stash many years ago. Hope you pop over to join in this weeks challenge and check out who our fab sponsor is this week!

Rainbow Lady's Challenge #201 Patriotic!

This week over at Rainbow Lady's challenge we are celebrating St Georges Day. I have recently bought Serif's Craft Artist Professional package and thought I'd share my first attempt at making a digi scrapbook page. Actually I'm quite pleased how it turned out, although my big Sister might think otherwise lol. Click on the link on my sidebar to share your patriotic projects this week. Elizabeth x

Dragons Dream TIO #114 "The Secret Garden"

This week at Dragons Dream TIO Frankie has chosen the theme "The Secret Garden", one of my favorite childhood stories. My imagination has run away with this dream, with tropical birds and flowers, and gems for dewdrops on dancing blades of grass, and of course lots of ink! I hope you pop over and and check out what the rest of the team have been up to, and we also have some fab new members on there this week, so welcome on board  girls.  Elizabeth xxx

Rainbow Lady's Challenge #200 Vintage

This week over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog we have the very fabulous Hels joining us as a guest designer, we are soooo excited! The theme this week is Vintage, so loads to get your teeth in to there. The card I've made this week is a twisted easel for my friend who is a "Sewing Queen" maybe I should re-word that one lol, a "Queen of Sewing". She has rescued my attempts on several occasions, and pinned me back together again!!

I love this mini tattered florals die, think this one will be living on the desk! Hope you come over and join us in this weeks challenge, just click on  the logo on my sidebar for a direct link. Elizabeth xxx

Over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge this week we are being sponsored by Joanna Sheene, who yet again has put up a fab prize for grabs! This week we are asking you to share you Easter projects with us, no matter what it is!
I love making tags and these little Indigoblu bunnies were the perfect size to fit on a tiny tag, along with Sir Tims flowers. They will probably make it on to a card shortly! Pop over via the link on my sidebar to join in. Happy Easter and good luck! Elizabeth xxx

Dragons Dream TIO #113 Angels and Demons

Over at DragonsDream TIO this time Lyn has chosen the book Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. I've used a theme plate from Non Sequiter called Greco Roman, which I though fitted the bill. Unfortunately as I'd not used these stamps before they were still un-mounted, not to panic won't take long. How wrong.... Not one scrap of EZ Mount have I in the cupboard! No problem I cut them out, placed them on to a sheet a paper and sprayed they backs with Stick and Spray, then left them on the floor to dry whilst I put the coffee pot on. Came back up and would you believe out of all this floor space Oscar chose, yep to sleep on top of all my newly sticky backed stamps!!! Going to be one of thoses days!!!!! So all washed, re-stickied and defluffed! I've re discovered chalk pencils again, I love the soft shading you can get with these. Our challenge is open again two weeks so please share your tags with us, and remember to use at least one real stamp. Elizabeth x
