CAS Fun with ATC's

Good morning blogger well it is at the moment . I don't know if your having the same trouble as me that posts are publishing, but not showing up on the dashboards until hours later !!!
This really couldn't  be any simpler :) just a question of getting the balance right

 I wasn't quite so happy with this one but thought I'd show it anyway
Thanks for the challenge

Eat drink and be Merry

Eat drink and be merry that's the theme at Frilly and Funky and Forgotten things at Our Creative Corner
It all started with the background which was the result of a play with the distress paints, the tea cup stamp an old wood mounted  one from Docrafts cut out and stuck one with a little piece of lace to look like a doily

Hope this post ok as blogger is playing me up
Thank you for a great challenges ladies and thank you  for popping by :)

Autumnal Stripes

Mr mojo seems to be playing along with me at the moment, so with inspiration coming from Fun with ATC's stripes and Alie - Crafts autumn, as last night I was playing with the alcohol inks but more of that to come when it's finished as I went off on a tangent making this ATC lol

I just love the way the inks in the glossy card glow just like autumn on a sunny day

Scraps at Artful Times

I'm sure none of like to waste a single scrap of paper and have boxes full of them, with that in mind and Finnabair's classes still fresh in my mind (we used the scraps left over for the journal pages) I decided  to make a mini page, nowhere near as full on as the one we did in the class but this is going to be a topper on a card.

If your using up your scraps on a project then pop along to Artful Times and join in the challenge and if your layering it up pop along to Country View Crafters challenge
Thank you for popping by :)

I'm converted

Yesterday I took my friends Becky's place as she wasn't feeling very well on Hels workshop.
 I got to play with the new distress paints !!! yeah I'm converted as I didn't think I needed another type of paint, just love the way they work with the distress inks a real eye opener for me but I guess most of you  know how wonderful they are .
Here's one of the pages in the book we did

Finnabair Weekend

If you haven't all ready heard it was a fantastic weekend for those of us on the Finnabair weekend, meeting with peeps I'd met before and meeting many for the first time and I finally got to meet Neet and her friend Wendy
Three projects with three over generous kits .
First project was a 12 x12, I've never work on such a large piece before

Second project was the canvas 8 x8 a size more in my comfort zone but still a first for me really enjoyed making it and plan to do some more in the future :)

Finale project a journal cover and I'm feeling more confident

We then did some journal pages with what we had left over, but scatty me left one of them behind so I'll post them another day
Thank you, everyone there the fintastic Anna  and Val and her elves for making it a weekend to remember
