Phew!!!! Loads to share....:)

Well I'm amongst a huge number of peeps suffering from the nasty coughs and fluiness stuff! So heartbreaking to hear your little ones coughing :( which means I haven't posted quite as much this week as I have wanted and there's so much to share....

Firstly I'm in this months Craft stamper magazine (wooo hoooo) with fun step by step projects using background stamps as a resist Thank you Katy I loved making these projects. So thought I would share a few sneak peeks...

For this issue I have created a few projects using background stamps and some of the gorgeous Hero arts Stamps I won some time ago... Also resist and under colouring it really is amazing the different textures you can achieve.

Now onto a project I created the other day for the Club Anya Monday challenge
Complete Package yesterday. The challenge is to alter an item for a holiday gift... Here's my effort's I did use Vivi Sprout simply as I haven't inked her up yet and she's part of a set so should be OK for the CA challenge rules...

I happen to have an extensive collection of these fabulous acrylic boxes which I buy my dies's in they're actually fantastic to die cut and can make wonderful ghost shapes that you can ink and the inspiration can just go go on and on. Instead I have cut an snowflake aperture, which I've secured with another smaller snowflake. The front of the box I have inked with my snow cap dabber paint so the flake really stands out and looks a little snowy too hey? I have stamped all my images and coloured with my copic markers. Now what is hard to see is the fabulous fun flock on all the fluffy trims, their hats and cuffs and so soft. Of course I have finished them all with a generous spritz of scrummilicious glimmer mist (YUMMO!!!)

The ornament cards I thought would be a good gift for peeps who's Christmas card stack has overtaken their living quarters and in case there might just be a spare tree branch for a special thank you! You can click on the smaller images for a close look at all the sparkle =). I have also made some little envelopes and stamped the front with greeting farm tag stamps!
