Blog Giveaway

I have decided to have a blog giveaway, the reason being is that I have at last decided to clear out my craft room.  All the shelves, cupboards, desk etc are full, there are piles upon piles on the floor and when I was having trouble even just getting in myself, time for action. Cleared out a wardrobe (which is in my craft room), put some items on e bay,**edit** the stuff on e bay is clothes, not crafting stuff, rest ready bagged to go to a charity shop, nearly all the clothes still have the labels on them, plus about 5 sizes too small, lol.

Anyway this is the start, there will be more to come:

Stamps and bits of embellishments.

The second is a Cosmo Cricket scrapbook/card making/book making kit which I purchased from QVC many moons ago and never opened the packages.  Because of the weight of this I can only post to the UK.  There are over 9000 pieces in this kit and it really is nice, I just don't scrapbook anymore.  

and here's the list of what's in the kit, hope you can read it

All you have to do is leave me a comment and on 2 March I'll pick a winner.  If you'd like to put it on your side bar, that would be great but not a condition of the giveaway.

If anyone knows of a charity which would like paper, stamps, or any crafting material, I'd be grateful if you'd let me know. 

Good luck and thanks for joining in.

Canvas Card

It's my daughter-in-law's birthday today, and it's a big one 40.  As you know I love doing canvases so made her a canvas card.

Used Dylusion paints and inks, rub ons, and stamps, again by Dylusions.

Happy Birthday Sandra

Today is Sandra's birthday and I decided to make her a canvas come card for her

I used Eco Friendly Paints, various stamps and rub ons.

I'm also entering this into the Happy Daze February Challenge which is "What you love to do".  I'm hooked on doing these canvases so thought it was appropriate.

Happy Valentine

Hope you're all having a good day and receive plenty of Valentine cards.  I did this journal page for my husband, he bought me a card, lol.

Use Paperartsy Fresco paints for the background, Liquitex liquid acrylic inks (which are fabulous) for the hearts, bit of stamping and doodling.  The idea for the love hearts came from an Edward Monkton book.

Right off to hospital for the morning which includes long waits to have bloods taken (3 hours last time) and the same long wait at Pharmacy.

SDC47 Altered Items

Think I've just managed to get this blogged before it ends.  The challenge was to alter something...

I used a piece of the packaging from an Amazon order, painted over it with Paperartsy Fresco paints, stamped the image onto a piece of fabric, stuck it to the tag and then machine stitched around it.  Stamped the daisy stamp across the bottom and coloured the flowers in with a Souffle pen, then stamped the heart stamp and coloured with a Faber Castell brush pen.  Do take a look at all the other entries here.

I do an ATC swap with my friend Pat, and this is what I did for the February swap

I know she likes it because we've just had lunch together.

Ladies Who Lunch Play Day

It was our monthly get together yesterday and this month there was quite a lots of us and it was a very enjoyable day.  We always plan what we are going to do and this month it was to paint a canvas.

I used Paperartsy Fresco paints, various stamps and rub ons.  I do love doing these canvases, love getting covered in paint, using inks and stencils, the whole job lot.

Next month we're going to use a canvas again and TSS metal.  

Well, it's bitterly cold here in South Yorkshire and I've been out this morning, done all the shopping and chores, so I can mess in my craft room art art studio and wait for the snow.
