Spring in to Fashion at Crafty Individuals

In real life this is pale pink and white, sadly on film it looks very white. This is one of my favourite Crafty Individual stamps and is used on a regular basis!
I've used a mixture of distress inks and promarkers, along with crealies and cheery lyn dies. Hope I'm not too late to enter. Elizabeth x

Walking on Sunshine............

It's been a beautiful day here in Colwyn Bay so I had a walk down to the seafront to check out how far the building work has gone.
The sand is now at road level, no more slippy steps down to the beach!
Our little old pier where I used to exhibit my artwork is looking very sad, especially my craft shop :(
This is the new building towards Old Colwyn which is going to be a watersports centre and opens officially in three weeks time with the radio 1 road show. This is the last picture I managed to take as I was escorted off the beach as it's closed still to the public, ups!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So funny as the chap that took me off looked like the red headed guy from the film The Full Monty lol.............. Off to open the vino tinto Happy Saturday xxx

TIO #139 Pink, Fabric and a Face

Well it's my turn over at Dragons Dream TIO Challenge blog, and as I'm in such a "Girlie" kind of mood at the moment I'd love to see Pink, Fabric and a Face on your tags.
Well I think you know by now that I like to start off with a white tag lol, and play, so out with the worn lipstick and black soot distress inks. The stamp is from Stamp Camp who come over to Port Sunlight every year, and have some amazing stamps.  I made the Lady a Facinater out of some Kanban Netting and dies from Cherry Lyn and Marianne. The smaller tag at the bottom is a previous TIO tag, copied, shrunk and printed off as an embelishment.
Hope to see you over at the TIO blog click the link on my sidebar to get there, just please remember to include at least one real stamp on your tag.
Sooooooo glad the blogger problems have been sorted out now, I just have some catching up to do!

Dragons Dream TIO #138 Blue, Sea and Stencils

Well I got here in the end, it's taken blogger two weeks to correct the problems many of us have been having.
Our challenge over at the Dragons Dream TIO this time has a theme of Blue, Sea and Stencils, as chosen by Sue.  It will run until Tuesday 16th April and our new challenge (fingers crossed) will start on Wednesday 17th April. The stamp I've used is one of the Impression Obsession one's coloured with Lyra Polycolour pencils, with a background made with distress inks and a dotty mask. Hope you hop over and join in our challenge, just click on the link on my sidebar and please don't forget to juse at least one real stamp.
Loads to share with you over the next few days!

Holy Moly!

I've not been able to access any of my blogs for over a week now which has been so annoying as you can imagine. Mr Blogger is now letting me back on using my tablet, so I will try and sort out the Dragons Dream TIO blog next. Just have to work out how to upload my photo's. Elizabeth x
