Sunday Stampers #220

Another rubbish photo, sorry, maybe I should have waited for daylight but don't get very much of than here. Hel's Sunday Stampers Challenge this week is "Green Tambourine" would love to say that I don't know the song but sadly can't, lol. I am from an era of pre-decimalisation, inches (still am) and Peter Hughes with matching flowery shirt and tie (on elastic lol) sorry Pete, won't mention the Jesus sandals though!. (photo's may follow, maybe not as he will have some of me lol ;) Anyway my offering for the Sunday Stampers Challenge is as above. Pink Frog Butterfly dies, Imaginations Crafts leaves and flowers stamp and a Stamp Camp sentiment. Off for a soak in the bath to ease my bites. Spent most of August at County Fairs bite free, had an hour in my garden and was munched lol. Hope Oscar doesn't get me up at 4-30am again, paws crossed! Elizabeth xxx

PDCC #146

It's ages since I've managed to play along at the PDCC love the colour splash they have chosen this week, Black and White with a splash of Lime Green. There are always some great entries for this challenge, and the design team are fab. Check them out via the link on my sidebar. Elizabeth x

Crafty Heaven!!

Am taking full advantage of having the house all to myself for the week, and plan to catch up on blogs, challenges, refilling my card stash and cuddles with Oscar!!  Have made a start by using my favourite flower stamps along with their matching leaves on to some DCWV papers. Not a great photo but it is such a dark miserable wet day here, even the daylight lamp isn't helping.  Elizabeth xxx

Dragons Dream TIO #123 Art for Art's Sake

Our Head Dragon Frankie has set the theme of "Art for Art's Sake" this time over at Dragons Dream TIO. Where she would like your tags to have a handmade background, an interesting character and a quirky twist.
I made my background using Radiant Rains with blobbed Distress Stain over the top. The umberella man is heat embossed with Moon Glow powder, so he too shimmers to match the background. The card Candy was sat on my desk and made me think of Smarties lol. So there's my twist, it's raining Smarties - I wish!!
Hop on over via the link on my sidebar and check out what my very talented team mates have created, and join in the the challenge. Please don't forget to use at least one real stamp on your tag. Elizabeth x

TIO #122 A Murder of Crows

This time over at Dragons Dream TIO Lyn  has chosen the theme of  "A Murder of Crows" with a blue moon and a chill wind.
My background was created with oil pastels, heated and blended together to create a stormy sky, sadly the silver doesn't show up very well when scanned and my camera is in hiding! The birds and sentiment stamps are Sir Tim's and the moon is from Clarity, all stamped out using stayz on ink. Hope you pop over to check out what my very clever team mates have created, just click on the logo on my sidebar and come and join in. Just remember to use at least one real stamp on your tag, and enjoy!!! Elizabeth xxx
