Dragons Dream TIO #161 The letter "A" and not a tag shape!

It's my turn to choose the theme over at the Dragons Dream TIO this time and I wanted something a little different. So along with the letter "A" I would like to see a "none tag" shape.
My little MDF heart was painted white and then a layer of Worn Lipstick Distress Crackle paint was added.  The Celtic heart is from The Heritage Stamp Co in Scotland and the typeface letters are from Docrafts.
My choice of "A" is Amour or in Welsh Carwriaeth, as I am part Welsh, part Irish and very Northen lol.
We would love to see you over at Dragons Dream, just click on the link on my sidebar.

Dragons Dream TIO #160 The Letter "G" and Birds

Over at the Dragons Dream TIO blog this time the uber talented Gabrielle has chosen the theme of the letter "G" and Birds.
My inspiration came from this Crafty Individuals picture of a "Gent" which co ordinated perfectly with a piece of Glenda Waterworths paper that I've had for years!
I used Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium through a Crafters workshop stencil for the bird element, then added a few leaf die shapes to finish it off, along with the stamped word "Gent".
We would love you to join in with our challenge, just click on the link on my sidebar and please don't forget to use at least one real stamp on your tag.

Imagination Crafts February Challenge "Love is in the Air"

"Love is in the Air" over at Imagination Crafts this month, and as I am on a mission to keep up with challenges this year, how could I resist a theme with that title!
The background paper is a piece of scrap spritzed with a gorgeous shade of iridescent mica powder, and mounted on to kraftcard.
The flowers are one of my favourite Imagination stamps, and are well loved and used so much that they never get put away (well that's my excuse anyway lol). They were stamped onto pink card stock using a Versafine ink, cut out and some old shell buttons from one of my Grandpa's shirts added for the centre.
And to add a little "Love" I used a little alphabet stamp set that was a gift, so no Idea where that came from.

Craft My Life Challenge

Whilst visiting my TIO team mate May's blog the other day, I came across this challenge and so decided to share one of the canvas's that I've been making ready for the upcoming craft fairs. I've already made and sold several versions of this, but still have loads more idea's spinning around in my head for different colourways etc.
If only Martha Stewart knew what this little paper punch would lead to lol.
