Happy Daze Shop

I discovered today that my online shop had developed an error showing items out of stock when they were in fact in stock. It has been fixed and my sincere apologies to anyone who has been trying to make purchases.

My OWOH draw has taken place and the 3 winners are :

Linda Vincent
Alexandra Knittel

This has been such a fabulous opportunity to see wonderful blogs and fabulous work, there has not been nearly enough time to visit them all properly yet, just a sneaky peek, so I will be taking more time to visit at leisure now.

My great thanks to all who entered the draw, to everyone who took part and also to Lisa who must work 24 hours a day while this is on, but what a fantastic event it is.

Here's to next year and many more

Blog Candy at the Elusive Images Design Team Blog

Two new plates of stamps are being offered over at the Elusive Images Design Team blog, these new plates will be launched on Create and craft this week.

Mixed Media Monday - Romance

My sister is mother to two teenage boys and has always felt she has missed out on being able to be girlie with a daughter. At Christmas I made very girly pink things for her son's girlfriends so now, for Valentine I have made a pink girly thing for her. It is a 3 inch Ready-To-Go!® Blank Board cube painted pink and stamped with a variety of stamps , largely from Elusive Images, and decorated with images from Inka and my own stash of postcards. I love working with cubes as you get 6 sides to play with ror decorating. The dangly bits were in my stash and I have no idea where they came from!

Gothic Arches - Hearts

The background fro my arch is gesso swiped over card with direct to paper distress inks and over inking top and bottom of 2 Tim Holtz masks. The image was free courtesy of Lisa Vollrath. The wire heart, which has made scanning this arch difficult as it is is 3D is one I had left over from my own wedding a couple of years ago, it is a heart bead wrapped in wire.

Sunday Postcard Art - Chairs

This is my take on this week's theme of chairs. My background is made using a favourite technique of gesso swiped over card and then direct to paper using distress inks. Over this are layers of stamping . The image was googled but I knew it was perfect for me as soon as I saw it, I love the wet Sunday afternoon Victorian parlour game feel it has.
