MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Artygirlz challenge # 52 - Its our Birthday...

The Artygirlz challenge blog has been running for a year now... my how time flies... so Happy Birthday to the Artygirlz and hope there are many more challenges to come. The theme for the challenge is Birthdays so using papers from the Papermania cupcake collection I first of all made a birthday card...

then because sometimes I have the desire to just keep going... well gotta keep abreast of my mojo when it's in full

out came the beads and ribbons... whooohoooo me using ribbons, usually just stroke them and drool... but well this little fun offering just wouldn't have been the same without them me thinks.

More little cupcakes followed and I turned a apple sauce jar into a little goody gift jar :)

I am always partial to a little bit of something sweet and I don't think that however old we get we should have to give up on our favourite kiddy sweets... lip lickin' stuff they are.

Who still buys rainbow drops......

Well I do!! rofl and I love 'em so couldn't think of anything better to put in my jar... go on admit it... you want some ;-)

Be back soon

Wow! Fabulous Chris! I prefer Jelly Beans, trouble is I can eat a whole packet in one hit - I've definately got a sweet tooth.

OH boy Chrissy this is my first visit to your new site and it is GORGEOUS DARLING. I totally agree with you about Rainbow Drops. I remember as a kid walking to school so that I could use my bus money for them. I would get a penny's worth in one of those cone shaped packets from way back. Oh heck I am getting old - no just more things in my had that's why they take longer to find.
