Meet Hannah.......

Last night Lily and I sat stitching this little Hannah doll together.... I did the arms and legs and Lily did the rest.... Lily had already made me a large version of Hannah for my birthday and wanted a mini one to go on her school bag.... so here she is....!

I'd forgotten how much i actually enjoy sewing and embroidery! must get my sewing stuff out and branch out!

Happy Halloween Girls

Well, my lovely ladies have been turned into wicked witches tonight! Lily looks more like frankensteins wife though! lol They are out at the moment 'trick or treating' hope they get lots of 'candy'!

Saturday Stamper ~ Hallowe'en

well... seems like an age since i last blogged anything! unfortunately its not because i've been secretly making loads of stuff to blog at once! My mum recently got out of hospital so i've been taking care of her and now i have a horrible chest infection. BUT i have made a pact with my friend, Anne that we will both try to do as many challenges as we can do this week. So here's my first challenge... the saturday stamper.

Gothic Arch SWap

with my friend Donna....

I was looking on Angela Hoffman's blog and got some free images so asked Donna to do a swap with me... this is my one. Thanx Angela!

Gothic Arch ~ Party!

I bought this 'fairy cake' wrapping paper last week and the question on everyones tongue was 'what are you going to use that for?' well.... i knew it would come in handy! I really like this and it's my birthday on Friday and I'm 40 :-(

3x5" + acetate wings from crafty individuals.

I made this for my friend, Donna

Have just made this.... I really like it ~ although didnt have beads to match up properly! I dont do a lot of art in blue (dont know why!) and im trying to expand on the 'usual' things i do :-) Thanx for looking :-)

Gothic Arch Challenge

is.... vacations/places this week.... I chose to do a beachy scene as this is my ideal holiday where i grow wings and fly free.

The Name Game

I have been tagged by Sija to play ~

The NAME GAME. The name of the game is to:List one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

My middle name is SUE

S ~ Swaps ~ i love to do swaps with people, making art and receiving it. Love to see other peoples work.

U ~ unmounted rubber stamps! I have quite a few for saying I only took up stamping 18months ago. I never have the one stamp that I really want though! lol im always on the look out for new stamps.

E ~ everyone who visits my blog and every artist i've made friends with through my artwork. Thank you :-)

So now I have to tag 3 people.....

4x4 Friday ~ Black & White

Challenge on 4x4 friday is black and white.
This is not my favourite colour combinations I must admit.... when I do art in black and white it feels very unfinished to me.... perhaps because I stamp alot. But it IS a challenge.... so here's my effort for this week!
