Alpha/Dictionary Challenge - Q

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.

Alice in Wonderland

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.

Journal52 - Song Lyrics

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.

Journal52 - Yes and No

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!

Gruffies & Guests Ch# 25 - Bingo

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.

I am also entering this for the House Mouse and Friends Challenge Blog - Anything Goes.

Alpha/Dictionary Challenge - B

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 am also entering this for the Butterfly Challenge - Butterflies plus Inking

Calendar Challenge Complete 2015

Here are my year's worth of beer mats for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge.  I will be making them into a book with my Bind It All when I get round to it!  A very enjoyable challenge!

J52 - Word of the Year

I have decided to try and take part in J52 again 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!
