going round and round

This is this weeks challenge card using extremely old stamps and some fabulous bo bunny papers they are soo fab that Chanelle (angelwhispers) has used the same how spooky is that. I was going for elegance and I love these papers pity tricky drawing round a plate and keeping the cutting out neat. I am amazed I got it finished after this weekend but I did I kept it simple though circles was a tough challenge I thought. Bring on the next one!!! Thanks for popping by x

week 16 cant believe it

Week 16 already cant believe it where is the time going. This week its oriental and as I have been having a sort out I found some papers that Ive had forever and a stamp Ive had even longer.Ive stamped the image and cut paper pieces over certain areas on the stamp then distress painted the background. I have keep it all to the two papers and added a couple of elements i.e. one silk topped brad and the sentiment that came with the papers x

I've made a start

This is the story so far punches neatly arranged' prisma pencils in one "paint tin" paper stumps and paint brushes in the other pots with brads in are in the little hanging basket.
The shelves are not full yet (give me time though) oh Ive just noticed Ive not put the lid on those flowers. Dunelmn plastic boxes and Ikea jars and those bar things are brill just need a few more.

Everything has yet to be labeled and I have to admit there is a lot more to go at. I think my dad may have to cut some more of his precious recycled white contiplas, it used to be wardrobes, he loves it when something he insisted on keeping comes in handy (he was a war baby)So I must thank Alicia for her and Joe's hard work last week and Dads white shelving.

week 15 autumn

This is my anything goes challenge card autumn decided to keep it simple, papers are from a 6x6 pad called material girl by cosmo cricket from the craft den and the stamp is the free one from craft stamper mag also from Lynne at the craft den.
The reason I decided to be simple this week was I got in a right mess earlier I thought ooo autumn Ill do a Tilda walking through leaves to school, NO sentiment NOT one that was suitable the printer has some nasty illness and smudges so I used individual letter stamps umh even the tiny ones were too big it ended in the bin twice!!!So I gave up I know I'm a quitter but I was losing my sanity and it would have been lovely. So the moral of this story is, always buy sentiments even when you never think you will need it, now I am on a all encompassing sentiment search, ha ha x

before during and............well that's for later

This was my craft room on sat morning before Alicia got her bossy hands on it mind you I do need a kick up the ..ss lol They have done a fabulous job, that horrible curtain has gone. The table is still there that's my craft table its a mess but it is the right height and you can get loads on it
this is the spare room (see below) piled high with stuff and all I have to do is get it put away in the new craft room which I will unveil in a couple of days but how much stuff is there!! That's quite bad really no really it is somewhere in there are my clothes didn't think to remove them lol. I now have shelves and nice thingies from ikea for my punches and pots for flowers and errrrr oh plastic see through boxes so I can see my bits and bobs so although its not as posh as it was going to be, its great (didn't want to spend the money) just need to find something to put my stamps in so they don't get crushed and damaged and so I can see them, nothing more annoying than finding you have three of the same stamp!!! been known to happen x
