This week on The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge the theme is all about SummerTime

Here's my entry.... An altered mirror (i've put a square of card onto the mirror because of the glare)
Why not check it out and have a play yourself... you don't have to use Octopode images!

Planes & Trains

Here's my card, featuring one of The Octopode Factory steampunk images and some Tim Holtz stamps. My delightful mother did point out that the plane is upside down ! The pilot is doing loop the loop. lol
This card is made using a steampunk image from The Octopode Factory and some stamps from creative expressions.

It's Hip to be Square!

This week at SPA the theme is SQUARES. Donna & I thought this may be an easier theme .... hmmmm..... no way! This was difficult!

I've gone with the Huey Lewis song "it's hip to be square" (I'm not a fan but I was looking for something to inspire me or a quote) and I've come up with these two postcards for the theme.

my 2nd postcard made with images from Collage Anonymous on Etsy
Both cards are cut and paste collage postcards

Time Won't give me Time

It's TOFF time again and the theme IS time! I am struggling with time at the moment... i never seem to get any time to play. I knew what I wanted to do with this piece but still ended up making it at 8pm last night. I'm pretty pleased with it.... don't tell anyone but I used peel offs for the numbers!

Living a Fanta-Sea

What could be more fantastical that this character from Creavil for the theme of fanta-sea! These are completely coloured with Twinkling h2o's ~ shame you can't see the shimmery-ness.

Tea for Two

Lily has begun a new challenge blog. Here is my entry for it. The first theme is Alice in Wonderland.... I decided to go square as it's something different to what I usually make. I nearly hyper-ventilated when I ripped this page out of an Alice book (I had bought the book to use for tearing... I already had one to keep) That was a hard thing to do!

pop over there and join in!
