Ride on a butterfly

This week's SPA is BUTTERFLIES ~ I've been away this weekend and so I am late posting my postcards.

 really pleased with these.
The prompt on One stitch at a time is to 'use a digi' never sure if this means an actual digital stamp or a digital image. These are digital images from Lisasalteredart but I print mine out to use on handmade backgrounds. So I hope these qualify for the challenge.

Merry UnBirthday to You

Every day is a merry un-birthday.... so I've made one for That's Crafty this week using rubberstamps from The Octopode Factory range and some creative expressions stamps.

on Simon says stamp and Show ~ the prompt is water.... including watercolours ;-) which is a no-brainer for me as I more than usually use watercolour pencils to colour my images in.

Have a very merry un-birthday! unless it IS your birthday then have a merry birthday!

How Now Brown Cow

This week for Happy Daze I've made this 'brown' tag which was inspired by the theme over on Sunday Stamper.... the use of brown in one's work.

Here's my tag for both ;-)

Tuesday Catchup

Wow time flies, I couldn't believe I hadn't blogged at all last week from Sunday to Sunday. I'm always a busy little beaver. But I blame my new phone, it's an android and I'm already addicted to Instagram! lol

Firstly, I'm showing my project for That's Crafty this week.... it's a 3d standalone dressmakers dummy. I'd like to enter this into one stitch at a time ~ anything goes AND Simon says stamp and show ~ chic to be shabby

 This week's Happy Daze project
 Gomez hanging out with me whilst I crochet
 It was world book day last week.... these are the books I've read so far this year.
 The tag I made using some new stamps from Sam Poole at Creative Studios

Land of make-believe

This week's theme on SPA is Mushrooms/Toadstools. Carol is our host ~ go check her blog out, wonderful stamping creations!
My traditional collaged postcard is made using Lisas Altered Art images
 and here is my Octopode entry using a combo of new digi stamps from The Octopode Factory and regular rubberstamps ;-)

I'm going to enter these both into the Sunday Stamper too as Hels has chosen the theme of 'oh you pretty things' aaggghhh can't get the song out of my head now! lol
