Alice ~ WS

At the moment on Wednesday Stamper the theme is open. I'm using these Alice ATC's for my entry ~ these are the first ATC's that are entirely stamped (i still collaged them though! lol) As alot of people know Alice is one of my very favourite themes to do in ART. These ones are for an Alice swap on Atcs for All forum... it is due on Monday (eeek!) hope they reach their destination on time!

Ho Ho Ho

Here's the Christmas card I made for my mum using my two babies dressed in santa outfits... thanks to Donna, who dressed up Myrtle and Petrie for me.

Also want to congratulate Donna on her 100th sale on Etsy.... go visit her at Collage Anonymous, her collage sheets are wonderful.

Open theme on SPA

Its open theme this week on SPA as it's such a busy time for us all. I'm using my birthday postcard for my wonderful friend Fatma as my contribution. My daughter Lily drew both Fatma and I in her illustrations, I took the heads from these and added them to different bodies.

Here is another postcard using one of Lily's illustrations for the head.

Christmas is coming....

the goose is getting fat..... oooopps... not in our house though ~ we have a veggie christmas platter :-)

Finally, last night we got our tree up. I love my tree... it is white and fibre-optic so no need for fairy lights. My wonderful friend, Fatma sent me some gorgeous mushrooms to put on the tree... our tree when I was young always had mushrooms on. Huge thanks and hugs to Fatma :-)

Happy Birthday Mutti !

It's my mum's 71st birthday today. Here are the cards me, Amber and Lily made for her. It's a bittersweet time for us all as my Dad's birthday is on the same day, and he's no longer with us. When I was a child I thought everyones mum and dad had the birthday on the same date. :-)

Wackadoodle Girls

I've been making some zetti christmas girls for my christmas artwork. I'm calling them Wackadoodle girls... this word cracks me up... picked it up from suede on project runway.

I've been given an award from two lovelies ~ mucky pup and Anne Swinkels. Thanks ladies :-)

St Nicholas

is the theme on SPA this week.... how many of you got some treats in your shoe?

A friend of mine sent me these santa heads which fit perfectly onto these fairies from Lisas Altered Art. I was going to use them on ATC's but as I made them all and lined them up, it popped into my head 'the usual suspects' so I thought I would use them all on one postcard.
