* Snow In My Pocket *

Hi Everyone

This weeks *In My Pocket * challenge is to have some snow in your pocket, i covered my pocket with snowflake paper and chalked them in with pink & blue i then stamped and embossed in white a large snowflake and filled in the centre with glitter glue.

For the inside of my pocket i stamped Gladys from the Stitchels stamp range colored her in with watercolours and added a few embelishments i also stamped her again onto shrink plastic so i am going to use this for this weeks *Everybody Art* challenge.

Hope you like it.

* Me To You October *

Hi everyone

Hope you are all keeping well.

I have finally finished this months *Me To You* project that i am involved in and this months project is to go to Claire so i decided to make a Tilda calendar.
As you can see i stamped the 3 Tilda images using stazon black ink and water coloured them in, the stand they are on is from some wooden packing pieces that came in some flat packed furniture waste not want not eh :) covered with paper i had with a QVC kit, i used my cropodile to make the holes at the top put on some rings and tied them up with Ribbon then simply added a calendar oh and tarted it up with paper flowers and gems :)

as you can see from the last photo it is free standing, Iv'e also added this to this weeks Tilda challenge which this week is Rainbow.
Hope you like it Claire xx

Hi all

* Tag Time *

Hello everyone

I went awol for a few days to spend time with my eldest Daughter who came to stay with me for the week, i haven't seen her for over 9 months and we had a fabulous girly mother Daughter time, she did my hair for me as she used to be a hairdresser then attended to my feet as she was a nurse for an old peoples hospice... not that i'm saying i'm old but, when you get nearer to sixty the old feet do need pampering a bit (lol) we also went to the bridal show at the nec as my youngest daughter is planning her wedding, we all had a real good time, my diet went out the window this week too as eldest DD is a fantastic cake maker... it would be rude not to eat them now woundn't it (lol), anyway i sadly put her on the coach home today and have had a little cry so threw myself into some crafting.

I have made this months tags for a swap that i am involved in, this months theme is Autumn but i think you may have guessed that, hope you like them.
