Last week's theme on Journal52 was Outside In. We were supposed to take a few craft items outside and make our journal page using those but that isn't really possible at the moment, so I decided to do my own thing and find a quote using the word Outside and went from there! It was also a chance to use one of my new fabulous Crazy Bird Tim Holtz stamps which I finally treated myself to!
I was delighted to be asked by Mrs. A. to be a Guest Designer for the new challenge on the Butterfly Challenge Blog. I picked the letter D and Mrs. A. gave me Doily for the theme. I made a tag using part of a doily which I inked and added various bits and pieces from my stash, including of course a butterfly which I inked and cut out to decorate, and loved getting inky and messy for this! Pop over to the blog and take part in the challenge and you could be in with a chance of winning a $10 Gift Certificate - all details on the blog.
I have just posted the halfway reminder for Gruffies & Guests latest challenge, Diecuts with the Option of Anything Goes. This month we have a fab prize of $10 of digi stamps from Di's Digi Stamps. I made my DT card using an image from a House Mouse CD and a couple of dies, leaves and flowers.
Our two words for May on The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge are Magenta and Flowers. I made my altered beer mats using some what I hope is magenta bp and stamped and cut out and coloured some flowers. I am pleased with these mats, they came out better than I thought they would as I wasn't sure about my colours!
I wasn't sure how to go about the theme of Treasure for last week's Journal52. The last few weeks I have been sticking things down in my book and I wanted to do some inking and stamping, so I found a quote using the word Treasure and went with that!
I am married with 3 grown up children ,4 grandchildren and 2 dogs! I have always done crafting of some sort, originally knitting, cross stitching and tapestry, then I began paper crafting some years ago and haven't looked back!
I like to take photos of my garden for scrapbooking and the one on here is a sunflower that the birds kindly planted for me!
P.S. - Now I have gone back to doing a lot of knitting, crocheting and sewing too!
