Gardner Gayle in Wellies

Hello All,

I had a look at the challenge for Saturated Canary and really fancied playing along, I have really wanted to do more "Altered Art" for a while. I normally do a notepad or gift bag. This is my first attempt at something a little different. Certainly needing a lot more practice at this type of thing. I didn't really know what I was doing, but I certainly had a lot of fun.

This is my daughters very first set of Wellie boots, and they started life like this:
As a pair:

  I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Saturated Canary  - Alter it
Creative Inspiration - Pearls, White, Flowers
Totally Papercrafts  - No Squares Allowed

Thanks for looking

Under the Umbrella

Hi All,

Please don't go into shock!! 2 posts in a week!!

This is a card I made a wee while ago, but been so busy I have not got round to blogging it yet!! The papers are "My minds eye" and "Tilda" I have used my newly purchase Stamping Bella stamp .... so love this image!!  ..... I had not intended to be quite so heavy handed with the distress ink .. so splashed on some water to try and go with the Rain theme, to try and make it look deliberate rather than hours of coloring turning into a disaster!! ... then a sprinkling of frantage and some resin roses to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challanges:

Creative Inspirations: Anything Goes
MAWT - Shaped Cards
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Totally Papercraft - No squares allowed

Thanks for looking
Hugs to all

Hello All,

Well, I am so behind at the mo its shocking!! I knew that building an extension would be stressful just didn't realize quite how much so!! ... Also got some majorly stressful things going on with work so that's my reasons for my absence in blogland!!

Onto the more pleasant things in life .... like craft!! LOL, over at the sugar bowl we have a new challenge running, this time we have a little theme of  "use your first sugar Nellie stamp" ... So which stamp began your Sugar addication!! cant wait to find out!!

Have to say it was fun dusting of an older stamp .... I do love this little sweetie, I bought this from one of my little trips to Elgin, along with 2 other Elizabeth Bell stamps .... I now have over 100 Nellies!!
