This is a tag made for the current Tag You're It! challenge on the theme of numbers. The stamp of the bathing beauties is by The Queen's Dresser Drawers and the 'squares' at the top and bottom were created by stamping Tim Holtz's scratches horizontally, and then again vertically. I got the idea for this from Hermine Koster in her new book Hermine's Choice. I love her work, she is a real inspiration! The number 4 is grungeboard which I have painted with acrylic paint and then added crackle accents.

I'm very early this week for Make a Moo or Two as the challenge doesn't actually start until tomorrow! The image of the girl is from the free stamp plate that comes with Hermine Koster's new book Hermine's Choice. I only got it yesterday, but couldn't wait to try it out!

Well, believe it or not, I am actually early with a challenge for a change! The new challenge theme on Make a Moo or Two is CIRCLES. I have used real coffee to stain the background of my Moo, and then stamped the text, the 'rings' were made with the top of one of my mini misters, and the cup and saucer was stamped and then coated with Ranger's Sepia Accents.

Members of Craft Swap Forum are currently involved in making butterflies for a very special project at the Houston Holocaust Museum. The museum's aim is to collect 1.5 million handmade butterflies in memory of the 1,500,000 children who died in the Holocaust. The butterflies will eventually comprise a breath-taking exhibition, currently scheduled for Spring 2012. Further details can be found on their website at: http://www.hmh.org/minisite/butterfly/index.html
This is my first butterfly - made using stamps by Paper Bag Studios, Tim Holtz & Hero Arts, and Distress Inks.

That is the theme on the Make a Moo or Two challenge this week. For this one I have used part of one my Christmas cards for the background, the image of the girl is by Paper Whimsey, and I've added some crystal ice stickles. I've also added an acetate snowflake at the top, but unfortunately this can't be seen on the scan!
Oooops! I have discovered that the reason the acetate snowflake did not show up in the scan was because it had dropped off - oh well, you will just have to use your imaginations!

A card made for the Anything Goes Challenge on Craftswap Forum... to use black and white plus one other colour. I've gone for my favourite pink, surprise, surprise! I've used a stamp by Laura Ashley for the background and an Anna Griffin stencil for the embossed centrepiece.
