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.

Tag your it challenge week 44-sketch

Wow I slept for England last night and it seems to have shot the bugs into I gave in and went for a 'nap' at 6pm and woke at 10.30pm... I went back to bed at 1am and slept 'till 9.30 this morning and it must have been a fabby sleep cos I woke myself up LAUGHING!!! Can't remember dreaming but if I was it must've been cool :D

There are big fluffy flakes of soft snow falling outside right now and in under an hour we've got quite a covering of the white stuff... so while it seemed like we were going to escape the worst weather... if it continues like this we will be snowed in by teatime.

I had planned to go and get some ink for my printer today but well you know I hate the cold so I may just have to put it off 'till another day and do some crafting instead... no hardship there then eh :D

This weeks Tag challenge is using a sketch by my lovely blogging buddy Kath and just for a change I thought I'd indulge in a bit of stamping and collage.

The paper, images and stamps are all from Crafty individuals except the main sentiment on the tag which is hero arts...I think. Pop over and check out Crafty individuals collection of fab images, stamps and other goodies... I promise you, you won't be disappointed.

I wanted some extras on this tag so I stamped some words and inked some string before cutting out the shapes and attaching to my tag. I especially love the key stamp which when cut out looks like a real little key on the reverse too... so cute.
Thanks for looking and have a great day all
