More Creating!

Each month I participate in a card swap through the Boxx. This months theme was 'Thank You ' and we each had to make 10 cards. Mine have now been sent off and here is my card.

I used Bazzill cardstock with Kaiser bling and Penny Royale pp with chocolate ribbon and punched a lacy border out of bazzill bling. The stamp is from Stampin up and is on watercolour paper and coloured with stampin up inks.

I haven't done much creating in the last few weeks as I am still struggling with a cold that I just can't seem to budge. I count my blessings that it is not swine flu! The rain has started again and today it is quite cold so trying to keep warm.

Thanks for looking, have a wonderful day wherever you may be.

Quotes and Sayings!

At Theme Thursday this week the theme is quotes and sayings. For my contribution I have made a ATC and chosen a new stamp I have just acquired from Stampin Up which includes a gorgeous saying by Mother Teresa which I have highlighted using a Spotlight Technique (which I have just done with Kelsey.)

I have coloured in the flowers and background using marvy markers and blender pen and used black crystals.

Thanks for looking, have a wonderful day.

The theme this week at Theme Thursday is purple. This week I have had a play with beeswax and crayon. For a first attempt I am quietly pleased with the result. I even put little purple beads into the wax on her hat. Image is from E-vintage

Thanks for dropping bye and having a look I do appreciate all your wonderful comments. Have a fabulous day.

Altered Book!!

On the Saturday of last weekend I had the priviledge of doing a workshop with Jenny Crossley at Scraptivate. What an inspirational lady, her work is amazing. We made the Swallow Book and it was my very first altered book (most definitely not my last). Wow what a day it was very much non stop and full on. We started at 9.30am, there was lots of distressing with paint, cutting, gluing and preparing etc. until it colminated into our finished books. I left at round 7.oopm that night and I can tell you I was completely exhausted. A huge thanks to Kelsey who arranged for Jenny to come to Western Australia. Here are some of the pages:

I was going to add to my pages but have decided to leave this one as it is and intend to make another one using some photos of my Dad growing up and give it to him for his birthday.
Thanks for looking, have a fabulous day.
