Our new letter for the next challenge on The Craft Barn's Alpha/Dictionary Challenge is Q. I went for Q for Queen, probably an obvious choice but I do have a lovely stamp that is just right for this one! Again I have used up as many bits of old stash as I could.
A quick birthday card I made for my daughter who loves anything Alice, with some lovely stickers I bought. I am entering this card in The Craft Barn's Hats challenge as the image on the top right has got a hat on if you look closely! The BP I have had for many years and is by K & Co.
For our third challenge on Journal52, we had two choices, either a song or lyrics from a favourite David Bowie song, or song or lyrics from anyone else. I chose to do the second option as I have always loved the song A Winter's tale by Queen, so tried to create a scene appropriate for this.
I combined the 2 prompts we were given for Journal52's second challenge - What are you saying Yes to and/or What are you saying no to - and made this page which I wish I could say I will be able to follow in my life but I very much doubt I will! I enjoyed making the page though!
I have just posted the halfway reminder for Gruffies & Guests' 25th challenge - Bingo. All you have to do is pick a row in any direction and use the items within it. This month Kym, who set the theme, is providing a lovely Surprise prize, so pop on over to the blog and take part.
For my DT work, as my crafting time is very minimal at the moment, I made a quick tag which I can then use as a topper on a card when I need one! I used the middle row down.
The new challenge on The Craft Barn for this year is an Alpha/Dictionary one. I enjoyed this the last time we did it and I made ATC's last time. This time I have decided to push on with my quest to use up old stash, so am using a 6" x 6" loose leaf book, BP papers, an alphabet and stickers etc for this one, plus of course parts of a dictionary! No beer mats this year! I chose to go with B for Butterflies this time.
I have decided to try and take part in J52again this year, even though I haven't quite finished last year's themes, but I do intend to get them done eventually! Our theme for this week is to choose a word for the year, and the word I have chosen is Relax because I don't do enough of it and I need to!
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!
