Reveal Sketch #1

This is my take on the sketch,you know me always the rebel ,I just had to turn it
it fitted what I had in mind,the image is a real cutie from Heartwarming vintage Girlfriends journal booklet,love this pad, ink was chestnut roan,bazzil cardstock and a piece of journal paper from mm spiral paperie mocha and my trusty Beacon Adhesive, prima Hydrangea`s,pin wheel and brad

Oh I can now reveal my DST Secret, I`m happy to say I will be happily designing for Miss Hippy Chick ,now sarah`s sketches are just wonderful
and there is a scrapbook and card DST, I have a card team place and so looking
forward to getting to know the other girls

Well yesterday was a beautiful spring Day my hopes built only to be dashed by the cold windy day today and back to coat zipped up to throat again,oh knew it
was to good to be true,but oh blow the weather, I have had lots of packages coming through the post,I needed some retail therapy
My big dark and handsome piece arrived today oh yes its my new paper rack very heavy and took some moving,but oh another 30 shelves to fill with paper,my 7 G revolving stand arrived for my ATC`s, my bits and pieces from the atc store arrived ,love this gal ,she is so fast with shipping. Now I will have to wait on other papers arriving like my new G45 papers and my stuff from the scrappy gourmet. Oh still waiting on my New prima stuff to arrive ,oh say it in pearls and other pieces
Well going to have a look on-line,but look only I have spent alot of $ and alot of £ so must be well behaved today [yeah right she says]
thanks for stopping by

This is a little ATc that I have finally[I think] finished up ,I used a mixture of Tim Holtz alchol inks and some pearl rubbings to achieve What I wanted, the pearls I kiaser craft and the lace is from my stash, I used glossy accents for her eyes I wanted it to look like she was alive,and I must say it does this ,her lace dress I just highlighted with some diamond stickles
I received this wonderful blog award from Vicki,thank you so much my friend

Well really I have been such a bad blogger,but I have been busy setting a forum up for my wonderful friends I have made worldwide at Krafty Timez Crafts,we all sort of got split by a store closure and I figured rather than try chase each other around different forums to set our own up,we are not store related so we can discuss anything,advertise anything and even invite store owners to let us have any discounts/shipping details they are having,I really would be happy for anyone worldwide to come join us over here,we are a very,very friendly group and well the girls talents are just amazing!...
This is a cigar box[I have a few] I altered,I wanted to keep the wood look so this got a really got coat of Glimmer mist in Coffee shop and I kept the attached label and rubbed Glimmer mist into it, the rest is just different papers and images from my stash and a few pieces got roughed up using my BG files to age it a little more,the lace got glimmer mist applied also, I like it,now to find a use for it lol!!............

This is the white stuff I have seen enough of this February to last a life time along with the very dangerous ice we have had to tread daily,this watering can I have had for ages,but I have my lavender heavily laden with snow,I altered it sort of!! I applied rub ons etc to this and it has stood out 2 years now and remains the same I was hoping it might start to rust etc seeing its galvinished but nope!!!...........

oh Sunday today and we are breadmaking and we are waiting for the first rise then more pummling and DS wants breadcakes so it probably will be loaf and cakes there is enough dough, Oh I just love the smell of fresh yeast,the quick packet stuff just does not do it for me at all,mind you I do like eating fresh yeast from the paper,takes me back to my childhood when I used to go to bakers for mum and we had to get 20z instead of one because I had eaten half of it by the time I had got home...........
Well I will go check on the bread and see what is what
bye 4 now.................
