Moo flowers

Flowers is the theme on Make a Moo or Two blog - so this is my entry. I used stamps by Hero Arts and the words were stamped onto shrink plastic.

MTTC Recipe

This week's challenge by My Time to Craft is to use a recipe: 1 ribbon, 1 flower, 2 buttons and some glitter. I had to make a birthday card for a friend so here is my effort - I used Papermania's green felt ribbon from their Secret Garden range at the bottom of the card.

Wee Scottie

The Tag You're It! challenge this week is Punch Art - so here is my entry. I have used various punches to decorate the tag including one of my favourites - the cute little Scottie dog - and of course I had to use a tartan background for this one!

Christmas Tag

Another challenge with Christmas as the theme! This time for Tag You're It!. I still haven't got into Xmas 'mode' yet, but here is my entry - a very simple affair using some Christmas printed background paper and squares embossed with Cuttlebug folders.

Trees at sunset

I made this ATC for Florrie's weekly challenge on Craft Swap Forum - on the theme of TREES. The background was created using various dye and distress inks, and I used the Lone Tree stamp by Paperbag Studios and the smaller trees are by DoCrafts. The idea and technique used owes a great deal to Michelle Zindorf and the absolutely fantastic tutorials on her blog, although this effort of mine can in no way be compared to Michelle's wonderful work! If you have never visited it - please do! She has some stunning examples of what you can do with ink and stamps! There is a link to her blog on my list of favourites on the right.


An inchy for this week's challenge on the Inchybyinch blog - on the theme of circles.

Moo.. sical

This week's challenge on Make a Moo or Two blog is Music - so here are my entries. I have used a printed score for the background which I have coloured with Distress Inks, and the images of the dancer and the woman are from art-e-zine.
