Hello Everyone-hope you are having a great day. It is still hot here today though it is thick cloud and dull looking. We are still reeling from our brush with Royalty yesterday and were pleased to see that Prince Charles and the Duchess still had the same clothes on when they went to see the new baby as they had when we saw them yesterday. Prince Charles's buttonhole was a simple cornflower
So what have I been doing since then ?
This is my page page for the Alpha Challenge at the Craft Barn where the letter this time is T and there are no twists I used paints for most of the background then distressed in on bubble wrap.
I chose the word Tattoo as I just love Tattoo designs and the skill that goes into most of them. The picture on the left is one on a girl's middle back. I haven't any Tattoos but I am sure I would have had at least one if they had been the fashion when I was younger. I would have chosen something like the little owl I stamped and would have had it placed discreetly--mostly because my dad would have been very cross if he had seen me with one lol.
The next challenge was at Anything but a Card and I thought no chance, when I saw that the theme this time is Christmas in July. I have two boxes with Christmas crafty stuff in and it stays hidden at this time of year. Well I unearthed it and found all the treasures that I have kept--most need binning I reckon.
I bought three of these bags for a pound and never used them last year.
This is what I have done with one of them. I have lots of Buzzcraft stamps and this one had never been used. It was stuck to the card and I thought it might have perished. Seeing as how it hadn't I used it as a centre piece for a topper for the bag.I embossed the backing with a Cuttlebug folder then made a ribbon flower to match the bag. The silver disc was in one of the boxes as was the Christmas tree die cut and the bow.
Now I wondering if I should hide the boxes again, sort them out and just make one box of them or just leave them on a shelf in case there are more early Christmas challenges.
Always lovely to have you pop by and thank you to everyone for your wonderful comments.
Love Chrissie xx
