Woo Hoo - Wonderful News!!!

Afternoon All,

I have some great news that I have been dying to tell you all but have not been able to until today...........I have been chosen to join the DT for a great new challenge blog starting January 6th 2011  -  "Do You Stack Up?"  (My very first DT membership). We will have challenges posted every Thursday with some great sponsors and fabulous prizes.  Please, please pop over there and join in the fun.

This is all thanks to Alison of Free Digital Stamps and Stretch N' Bubbles for setting up this new Challenge Blog and picking little ol' me to be part of the great team.  I have added all the DT members to the side bar so please keep checking this blog for details of the upcoming challenges and pop onto their blogs and leave some love - they are a brilliant bunch of talented ladies.  In fact, if you go over to the blog now, you can meet all the designers and take a look at their wonderful work.  Do excuse the terrible photo of me though!!!

It goes without saying, that I am both nervous and excited about this opportunity but can't wait to get started.  Hope you will join in and have some fun.

Something Different

Hi Bloggers

Today I am posting something a bit different from the usual cards!  This is a mirror I made some time ago.  It is my take on a project from Craft Stamper - October 2008.

I painted the mirror black and then decorated it with 32 small stampboard pieces, which were coloured with inks and stamped. Actually, that is not strictly true -  I used rub-ons to decorate some. I then enhanced some of the designs with the scratch tool to give white areas, gave it a coat of varnish and finished off with a few charms.

Hope you like - and sorry about the lousy pics.

Happy Sunday

Hi All,

Why Happy Sunday - 'cos the snow has finally gone and the sun is shining (at least for now)!!

I have been asked by CSN stores if I would like to do a small review for them.  I was only too pleased to as they have some great online stores.  You really should pop onto their online furniture store and take a look at some of the fabulous bedroom furniture they have there - I especially like the children's beds.  While there, do take the opportunity to have a look at all the other lovely departments.

While I am here, I thought I would show you my latest project - a stamped image candle.  I have been wanting to try this for ages.

Sorry about the picture quality but due to it being a white candle, the light insisted on bouncing off it!!

I have used an Elusive Images stamp called Rose Stem Script which I bought last year from Graphicus and coloured it with Promarkers. It's not too bad for a first attempt but the candle did slightly lose it's shape.  Think I will need to use a harder candle next time.

Thanks for looking.
