Flora and Fauna with SCD

This weeks Skinni ( 3 x 5 inches) theme is Flora and Fauna. This is my take on the theme. The stamp is an Elusive image stamp from Graphicus which I have inked with pens and then spritzed before stamping to give a watercolor effect. The butterflies are just Anita stickers which are quite fun as they are 3 Dimensional and slightly glittery. Since it was Flora and Fauna I thought I better photograph it in the garden.

Blue and white with SCD

The theme this week for Skinnis over on SCD is blue and white. I love this image and sentiment. It is so strong it really does not need anything else apart from itself.  I just embellished the edge with some ribbon. The image is one of the Paperbag Studio stamps available in the UK from The Stamp Attic.

Skinni cats with SCD

No the cats do not have to be skinni! You can have fat cats, cuddly cats, stripy cats, spotty cats, whatever as long as there is a cat!

This is my make and the saying just made me laugh. This Stampotique cat (available in the UK from The Stamp Attic)  looks so guilty here that I thought it enhanced the joke. It was just calling out for a hand pointing to the guilty party!

Enjoy the make this week. Remember Skinnis are 3 x 5 inches.

Hop over to SCD and see what the rest of the design team have made.

The Mad Hatter Blog Hop: Come and have some fun with Gingersnaps!

Welcome to the Gingersnap Creations’ Mad Hatter’s Day Hop and Hop Stop #8
The Gingers are celebrating Mad Hatter Day and hope that you will hop along with us!

The reason Mad Hatter Day  is today (10/6/2010) is because of the 10/6 in the hat band. When we had sterling coinage this was the way prices were often written. It would have meant 10 shillings and sixpence. In the UK we put the day before the month. I know it is the other way around in the USA. 
If you’ve already been hopping then hopefully you have just come from Lynn at Trash to Treasure Art. If you are starting here, welcome! It's a loop so you can start anywhere along the way!

At each stop, you need to collect a word! There are 10 stops in all starting and ending with the Gingersnap Creations blog where you can get all the specific information and get a peak at the the goodies in the Mad Hatter Giveaway.
When you get all your words, 8 in all, unscramble them to form a quotation from the beloved classic, Alice in Wonderland. Once you have your guess at the quote, email it and your name to gingersnapstamp@gmail.com by June 25, 2010. We will be picking one lucky winner at random from the correct entries to win the Mad Hatter package! We’ll let you know who won on June 29, 2010.
If you visit all the stops, you should end up right back at Gingersnap Creations with 8 words! Unscramble the words to come up with the correct quote and email it on to gingersnapstamp@gmail.com. That's all there is to it!
If you get lost along the way, you can see the entire route at Gingersnap Creations.
My word is "a".
Your next stop on the hop is Shar at Ill Tempered Ink.  Have fun and good luck!

Transparency at Gingersnaps

This weeks theme at Gingersnaps is Transparency. This is one of those wonderful Brag Bags with see through pockets with which you can show off your art work. When I first saw these several years ago I thought it a wonderful idea. After all many of us make things and then do they go in a box or a drawer? Or does everyone post all of theirs to family and friends? Anyway I felt this was a grand alternative. You can also insert new artwork  when you want a change.

 This is my contribution to the theme Transparency. These bags were available from Graphicus but I do not know whether they are still available through them?

Way behind on postings!

Well this is the first image to post. We went away last week and camped. Enjoyed glorious weather and even got our sailboat on the water which John has very lovingly restored. Felt quite an achievement. But it has meant I am way behind on posting and haven't created anything last week. This first image is for Gingersnaps and their current challenge "Wings" I must admit I flung this together at the last moment but still had fun doing it.

The second image was for the SCD challenge where Skinnis are the format this month and this weeks theme is house or houses. I love these Paper Artsy stamps and they remind me of an English seaside town, possibly Aldburgh, which is close to where one of my brothers live, so reminds me of him!

I feel rather out of the zone at the moment, what with the garden and the plants to plant out and having a week away.
