My Creative endevours have moved

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.

Alter it monthly challenge- Home Sweet Home

Okay so you thought I had disappeared off the face of the earth... didn't   I'm still here but I have a confession to make.  I am now a Facebook Junkie (and OMG fb games.... they are giving me sleepless nights and normally I hate these sort of things.... think I am morphing ooooer).  So me lovelies if you are on facebook yourself... let me know so I can add you as my friend  (well if you wanna be my friend that

Right down to crafty stuff cos that's what you wanna see isn't it so... and I have decided to enter this piece into Alter it Monthly challenge where the theme is Home Sweet Home (can't believe I just found this challenge blog... where've I been).  There are some fab examples over there... go check it out.
Take a walk down memory lane... that's the name of my piece... created with gorgeous papers, stamps, chipboard  and an image from Crafty Individuals once again.

See my birdie at the white picket fence listening to the sweet tune of the violin.... I think he thinks it's a lady birdie...n... maybe he's in  He's sort of got that look in his eye :D  The chipboard house was wonderful to stamp on... great smooth surface and I coloured with distress inks...

Thanks for looking.... hope to catch up with you all this week :D
