Project for a few challenges and an inchie

Hi All and thank you for calling in. I am now feeling almost back to normal and have to go to see the doc today so I am sure I will be declared fit-well I hope I will be as me and antibiotics don't get on well with each other at all.

I am finding it difficult to get back into crafting but I expect it will return with a vengeance soon--I hope so.

At Art Journal Journey the theme this time was chosen by Hazel and is-'If Music be the Food of Love'. At Moo Mania and More we are asked to use our scraps. and at Country View Crafts you can show them your 'Own backgrounds'. I did make this with all three in mind.




 For the background I used 2 Cuttlebug folders and then smeared them with inks. Sorry the colours don't show up too well but it was a very dull yesterday when I took the picture


Firstly I distressed the edge of the paper with ink and then delved into my scrap pile and added various punched shapes and cut-out pieces from a magazine. My writing looks shaky on the raised background but it says -IS ALL YOU NEED to fit with the love.

At Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is Slippers


Still doing my jigsaw pieces and going to try sitting together the ones I have done so far-that should be fun

Have a great day all

Love Chrissie xx

  23. Love that double-embossed background, and the punched and die-cut scraps are great. Love may be most of what you need, but I need some craft supplies too, I'm afraid. Love your cute inchie slippers - hope you've still got your feet up on the way to full recovery.
