Glamour and lace

Greetings,

I hope that storm Doris is not battering you to hard as she sweeps through the globe. I am on fence watch, hoping that our old wooden fences stay upright. I have had to lock the cat flap as the wind kept opening like a creepy hand feeling inside the kitchen with cold, drafty fingers.

Anyway here is a further entry to the Design by Ryn blog using the wonderful shell stamp, which I masked off stamped the lace over it.

My second entry to the Less is More alphabet challenge is below. I created mess and had lots of fun with brushos over some embossed Cosmo Cricket papers that I picked up cheaply at Hobby craft and here is one of the results.


and because it is HORRIBLE outside here are two images filled with sun a blue skies.

Words

Greetings,
I was playing with my inkylicious stamps as my friend adores giraffes and her birthday is coming up. When I found this scrap of paper. It has the most wonderful words on it such as, Boogle, skulk, bugaboo. I had to use it.

And I loved the combination of silhouettes and words, so these followed:


I am entering the giraffes into the simply less is more challenge this week which is alphabet.

beetroot mercat


Greetings and salutations,

I have been out of touch for an age, so here is a plethora of cards.

The first is is a beetroot Mercat, the background is made with beetroot juice, it came out so much more subtle then I thought it was, so was perfect for a delicate Queen catfish.


 The next is made using a tranquil esty image that I used over a lovely designs by Ryn water droplets stamps.

I have rather pretentiously called this by the moon's soft light, it is made with Lavinia stamps and one of their papers.



and I am finishing with images of a Nutlatch which I took at Lackford Lakes, is he not GORGEOUS!?

papers from a selection from Making cards mag.

 Now where is that bloody mary?

King of Cats -Left of Center

Greeting,
This is my DT entry for this week's Left of Center challenge which is fairy tales. As soon as I saw this wonderful image from Day for daisies I was in love he is called black cat but for me is the King of cats!I got so into this theme of fairy tales that I started researching the old fairy of the kings of cats.
The background is stamped with fleur de lis and tiny old writing. As I have a cat that rules my house, I felt the sentiment to be true!

I went to the Craft, art and cake show at the NEC yesterday. It was amazing! I have been to one in March several times but this was was HUGE. The cakes were amazing many had a Halloween theme.
