yes, sadly it's time to say Adieu to MMM ... their prompts and challenges have inspired many of us to make art ... the last prompt is 'shape up' Here's mine ~ it's a canvas I made for my lovely friend, Fatma.

What do you See?

When you look at me.... for this weeks SPA Louise from KardKrazy has asked us to use 2 of the same image in our artwork. I went the whole hog and used 7 of the same images! All of me, to represent many different sides of me. But what do you see when you look at me? (there is one of me that has lost a leg, this was due to glue however, I've left it like that as part of me is being a carer for my mum, who only has one leg)

awww.... have you seen what Donna said about me ? (look in comments) such a wonderful friend to me and she bakes lovely cakes! lol

The Cat Post

It seems I only ever blog about my babies i.e. the pupstars.... so I thought I'd put Harvey and Austin in the limelight for once! Harvey is the tortoiseshell ~ she likes to mother all the animals and looks after them all. Austin is always dazed and confused, bless him.

Look what Mama Got!

My dear sweet little A came home from school yesterday carrying these for me! Aren't they gorgeous?

A quick heart-shaped sponge I made for Family Film Night

Sing Like a Bird

These little chick-lets seemed ideal for the Collage Obsession's theme of 'spring'

I'm not hiding anything!

this seemed an apt title as I'm showing my little table... at the weekend, I finally had time to myself (first time in months!) and I decided to have a LisasAlteredArt day as I have plenty of images already cut and ready to go! I used the new 'phrases' sheet from LAA for the words.

This table was clear an hour before this pic was taken!
over on theme thursday this week, you have to use words on your art piece. Here I've made an ATC.

You Reap What You Sew

I wonder what this little one from LisasAlteredArt sowed? lol This is for the3muses challenge to use a quote
(i'm not sure sowed is a word? it doesn't sound grammatical)

Time Flies

Finally, I've had time to myself to create this weekend.... I've made 14 ATC's and 2 Postcards.
Here's the ATC I made for Art Creations Friday

The Heart wants what the Heart wants

This week on SPA the theme is HEARTS.
I knew as soon as I saw these images from Lily (THE OCTOPODE FACTORY) that I needed to use them on a card so valentine's is a great excuse to use them. Lily actually drew these for a tattoo someone wanted.
My second card today for SPA is using a lovely collage sheet from LisasAlteredArt.

The theme on CBH this week is I have a dream.... great words from a great man. However, I have gone done a far more whimsical route...

this cat fairy is dreaming of.....
and this fairy is dreaming magical dreams

Year of the Rabbit

On Rainbow Lady's Challenge you have to use a rabbit on your work... well... what better rabbit to use than Alice's very own White Rabbit!
