Rainbow Lady's Challenge #193 Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day

Well here he is the love of my life, my scruffy little mate, Oscar. He is a grand old chap of 17 now, and still has his naughty days, which I love! The sticky backed ribbon reminded me of his dog collar and chain lead. The tag is the original one with his "Dogs Home" details on, so very sentimental to me, old softee that I am. He was orginally going to be called Harry, but Mum insisted on calling him "Oscar" which was her nickname for me, lol.  Hope you join in this weeks challenge, just click on the link on my sidebar for a direct link.

TIO #110 Birdsong

This week at Dragons Dream TIO Wanda has chosen the book "Birdsong" yet another one this bookworm hasn't read!!!! I got a little carried away with a new pack of Kanban cardstock that I received this week, so needed to play. The gorgeous apricot and greys have been muted with good old black soot distress inks to make them less pretty. I cannot believe that I bought this pack because the colours matched my living room lol, but gorgeous colours they are! The flowers were stamped with an Anna Griffin floral stamp, inked around the edges before they were rolled in to shape. The bird and the swirl were both die cut from Kanban card and inked. Something a little different from me this week. Please pop over and join in our fortnightly challenge via the link on my sidebar, and please remember to include at least one real stamp. Elizabeth x

TIO #109 The Time Traveller's Wife

I'm here better late than never, sorry Frankie. That will teach me to check that my camera battery is charged!!! Anyway here's my DT piece for DragonsDream TIO this week. Helen has chosen the book "The Time Traveller's Wife", another one I've not read, and me a book worm lol. Have been playing with mica powders, spritzing and stamping over them (another little addiction of mine, still could have worse ones lol). My tag started with this sentiment out of a HOTP ephemera book, I love butterflies and they are a sybol of new begginings, something we all need from time to time. The butterfly stamps are by Artemio and the clock face by Sir Tim. Hope you join in the challenge, just remember to use at least one real stamp on your tag.By the way the challenge is running on a fortnightly basis whilst everyone is so busy, so it gives you extra time to join in.
