E is for ......................................

..................... elephants! Over on The Alphabet Challenge Blog! So here is my tag for this week! I cover the tag with the green paper and then had a fight with my silver krylon pen around the edges - as you can see the pen won! I used touches of gel pen for accents and punched some teeny tiny flowers then added some rubys in the centres!

Thursday, 12 November 2009


I bought this stamp at the NEC too - did I leave any there I hear you ask! I got this one because it made me think of our two cats especially when I read the small print! You will have to click on the picture I think to be able to read it! I'm really pleased with the way this card turned out!


Well here is a very simple card - this was a bargain stamp that I found at the NEC ! What a fab looking couple aren't they?

Christmas Pud

Back to Christmas! Here is another new stamp bought at the NEC! I think I might have got carried away with the brassy blonde hair! Doesn't she look please with herself?

Well I did it! My last two houses for the swap still not fully sure about these.

Chrissy House
