Play Date Cafe Challenge No 14

The colours this week at the Play Date Cafe Challenge are Orange, Lilac, Dusty Pink, Green and White.
I was stumped at first but then I decided to do an ATC, so here it is: Meadow at Sunset . Sounds very posh doesn't it? LOL!
I used Distress Inks, a variety of stamps and white embossing powder.
We had a thick white frost this morning, which was a bit of a surprise because it's been warmer lately. It was very pretty, but I can't wait for Spring. X

Tuesday Taggers - recycle Christmas leftovers

A bit behind with challenges this week, but this is my Christmas leftovers effort for Tuesday Taggers - Used leftover flowersoft, green ribbon and graphic45 paper on this little birdhouse from Craftwork Cards. I used Distress inks and Elusive Image stamps first though. The photo has washed out the colours a fair bit - it looks better IRL - LOL!!!!!!!
Got to dash - have to tackle my Income Tax by 31st Jan - big groans!!!!!!!!!!!!

Play Date Cafe Challenge No 12

Three shades of blue to play with this week at The Play Date Cafe.
The girl's face stamp is from Crafty Individuals, stamped on Stampboard.
The frame is by Tattered Angels, sprayed with glimmer mist, some squiggles have been enhanced with glamour dust and then a few Dew drops added.
Ink on the white card is Aqua by Adirondack, inked on over a Tim Holtz mask.
Small flowers are by Prima.
Blue cardstock is SU.
Sorry it's a it of a rushed post - trying to catch up with some work of the non-crafting kind - boo!
But needs must, have to earn a crust (not to forget stash money).
Love Anne X

Tuesday Taggers Bird and a Tag

The theme this week on Tuesday Taggers is to include a bird and a tag.
Background is Distress Inks and Studio 490 and SU stamps.
Tag is stamped with a Cavallini bird image and punched with SU tag punch.
Butterflies are also Cavallini stamps, and I punched the bottom edge with a Martha Stewart border punch.
I bought the little hanger from Crafty Individuals and I just wrote the title on the label.
After our very slight thaw we had terrible black ice this morning, so another day of work missed which is very annoying!
Thanks for looking, hope you are all keeping warm and safe. X

Giant Icicle!!!!!!

This icicle was hanging above one of our bedroom windows and when a slight thaw started today it was in danger of falling on to our new conservatory roof.
My very kind sister managed to reach through the window and grab hold of it with a towel so that we could dispose of it safely.
It was massive! 135cm long and weighing 9lb! Good job she rescued it!

Play Date Cafe Challenge No 11

The colours this week on The Play Date Cafe Challenge are gold, silver, black and white.
I stamped some Lavinia seed head stamps with versamark ink and embossed with silver, white and gold embossing powders.
I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the bottom edge of my black cardstock and mounted it on matt gold card.
My base card is stamped with versamark and an Elusive Images stamp then dusted with gold perfect pearls, and I filled in the space on the bottom corner with another black seed head.
It's great to be doing some crafting again. I would never have thought of putting all these colours together on one project, so thank you Sandi for a great challenge.
Thanks for looking X

Medallion Stamp and sentiment is SU, oval punches are SU and lovely black and white ribbon is also SU. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder on the white card.
