Christmas has started

This is a snack tray I altered for a challenge with UKATC, the theme was red, green, gold, silver and Christmas.  The Santa is a Molly Bloom coloured with my Copics, the tree is an Anna Griffin embellishments.  The recipient loves owls so I could not resist putting a Hunkedory topper on the front.  I stopped myself from adding anything else to it.

Halloween Artist Trading Card

My attempt at a Halloween ATC, love this stamp set, which is by Lindsay Mason, there is a great text stamp in it which says "things are unravelling" which i think is great.

I used TH distress stains, and then black soot ink over a brick wall mask, used the Inspiration Jar stamp from The Artistic Stamper and coloured in with my copics.  The ticket is from Whimsey stamps courtesy of That Craft Place (thanks Lisa). I don't really do Halloween, but decided to give it a go for a challenge on Running with scissors

Artist Trading Cards

I have taken a liking to doing artist trading cards, at first I thought they were too small and fiddly, but now I am really enjoying them and have joined a few swap groups.  Here are a few samples of some I have completed and swapped

Favorite color - very girly for me

Words of Wisdom, this is one of my favorite stamp sets

Time, I seem to have a bit of an obsession with clock faces, have them in everything

Shabby Chic


And finally, Memories, again using that favorite stamp set, this time as an easel ATC

Reason for absence

First of all apologies for not posting for some time, I have been on holiday in New Zealand seeing my beautiful great neice.
