Its Tuesday evening and time for another challenge over on Anything Goes.
This weeks theme is

I have used the Olivia range from Bo Bunny which are fabulous shades of brown, peach and green with a little hint of cream. Added 3 die cut and embossed butterflies and all finished off with Star dust Stickles.

This paper is ideal for cutting layers of flowers to decoupage.

Why don't you pop over and have a look at what the rest of the DT have created.

Good morning crafters. Sorry I have not been blogging for a while, apart from my on going Internet connection problems, we have had a lot going on here at home. Not much crafting been done since Christmas so now a lot of catching up to do. I have many WIP to finish ready for the new timetable, that is over due some what.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and well wishes last week for about my Aunties funeral. It was a lovely service and nice to catch with all the family just wish the circumstances could have been different.

Now for WOYWW not joined in for ages, so I thought I would share with you one of my many WIP that I am now going to settle down to finish, fingers crossed. I will let you know how I get on. I also have a few things to show that we have been making in class, which I hope to blog later in the week. We made a fab bird cage last week in our Wednesday night class using T!ms caged bird die, more on that later.

My work space this morning 'A stitch in time' the title I have given to one of my altered book workshops coming up next month. This picture is of the front cover.

Really enjoying making this, cant wait until the weekend when I am hoping to get this and a lot of other projects finished. If you have not heard of WOYWW why not pop over to Julias blog and find out more or even better join in, it is loads of fun and you get to snoop around other work spaces and see some beautiful creations on the way.

I started this post at 9.30am this morning, been unable to upload pics all day, just wondering has anyone else had this problem?

If you have not joined in yet with our challenge over on

This challenge will run until next Tuesday evening the 25th Jan.

Eyelets & Text ColourBrads

We have 2 new design team members so pop over and say hello.

Our challenges will be every two weeks for the time being so this will give you more time to make something to join us. My Internet connection went off last night just after writting this post and it didn't save it! arrggghh. Just when things had been working better since we had a new modem.

This is my card I have used Bo Bunny ribbon and papers from the Olivia range, a Magnolia stamped image coloured with Copics, MS deep edge punch one eyelet and three brads.

Feeling sad today, we are going to my Aunties funeral this morning, she died the day after Boxing day.....
