Not much crafting this week.....

Have it been able to get in the craft room this week as it's full up with the contents of my loft - we sprung a leak from the water tank which decided to drip through the bathroom ceiling!!!! Fingers crossed all repaired now but just giving a few days before putting everything back!!!!!

Anyhow I did finish off my contribution for the Project Life handmade cards a week ago and only just got round to putting them on the blog. Hope the receipients will like them

May Tag swap UKS

Well finally managed to get into the craft room again!!!! Life managed to get a little in the way :(

This is my contribution to the May tag swap on UKS - the theme this month is Flowers so........

The base is actually a wooden spoon and the rest is all die cuts and a sculpey push mould face.
I use Tim Holtz extra large tattered flower die, his pine cone die to make the yellow roses and a Timmy movers and shapers butterfly and a few grungeboard flourishes and crowns. I have used gilding wax, glitter and a bit of bling but they are not showing up too well in this photo.

She's been here a week now..........

Ciara has been with us a whole week now and we're all frazzled - poor Eadie diesn't quite know what to make of this new little arrival!!! She's been severely nipped by some very sharp little teggies but she's wagging her tail all the time so hopefully she'll get used to Ciara.

A quiet moment!!!!

And another.....

Handmade Project Life/sn@p cards

I'm currently hosting a swap on UKS to make some handmade Project Life/sn@p cards. this is my contribution so far - just got one more set of 3x4s to do :). Thoroughly enjoyed making these - I'm going to make some more for Eadie and Ciara's sn@p album using some doggie stamps and an embossing folder I found earlier on whilst looking for a particular elusive sizzix die in the craft room.

Altered paintbrush swap (warning bloody image alert!!!!)

Not entirely happy with this - it was so beautifully pictured in my head - didn't translate well in reality.

My theme was dark, gothy with an example given of Mark Ryden's artwork. I did a quick google and came across this

And this is how I've interpreted it on a paintbrush
