Imaginary People Alphabet swap

Don’t know whose bright idea this was (?!?) but I’ve just finished my tags for the above swap ‘with a twist’. The twist was that we had to stamp someone on the tags, give them a name beginning with the letter we were assigned, then write a paragraph or two on the back, describing a moment in time for that person, fitting as much as we could into the paragraph………. suffice it to say it took me ages to do my own!! It was like being back in school – fun, though and the other participants’ tags are wonderful – some funny, some a little bit naughty and some plain incredible!

I’ve uploaded both my completed tag and the ‘nude’ tag before stamping the main images. And here’s my paragraph – or two………….
Almost breathless with excitement, she carefully put on his favourite dress, after bathing in water heady with his favourite perfume.
The talk of the village, she was a mysterious young widow, virtually a recluse since the death of her husband. Suddenly, she was being seen again in the company of a tall, dark, handsome stranger. She tried not to dwell on the hurtful words which had reduced her to tears when she read them in the local newspaper. Instead, she allowed herself the luxury of contemplating the evening ahead, when she would once more feel complete, even if only for a short while.

Altered Book Pages ATCs – Theme Thursday

Just finished these, so thought I’d upload. The book pages were coloured with the home made Glimmer Mists. In timely fashion, the challenge for this week’s Theme Thursday is script, so this is my entry.

In honour of a reorganised craft room..

Thought I’d upload a card I made a while ago. This was one that I really enjoyed. I’ve been reorganising the craft room since the show – but there isn’t enough space and I can’t find things as easily yet. I haven’t stamped in it yet, since it was done, but today’s the day I need to do that…….. watch this space!

Coaster Book – Into the Heart of a Child

We now have blank coasters in stock and here’s a Coaster book I made, using the Bind it all. I covered each coaster with white or black card or paper, then stamped and embellished, keeping to a black and white theme. This one was fun to make………. we’ll have it with us at Port Sunlight tomorrow. I’ve sanded the edges again (with a nail file) since I added paint, so I’m going to touch those up now.
The theme is ‘Into the Heart of a Child’ – it’s my favourite U2 song of the moment and was playing in my head all the time I was making it.
