Mail from Australia .....

Aren't I a lucky chick?

Remember my blog post a few weeks ago with the publication in the Stampers' Sampler magazine? 

Well, I had used a Darkroom Door stamp and guess what? All artist with a publication using the DRD stamps will receive a background stamp of their choice .... how cool is that?

I decided to go for the Stone Background, isn't it a neat and versatile image? Can't wait to get started with it ;)



Thank you Rachel, you just made my day with that lovely note you also sent me!

Tim Holtz at the Paperworld ...

I had an awesome time watching Tim for almost 3 hours at the PI booth. Don't you all love that very concentrated look on my face .... lol



Isn't it just awesome? 
A background Tim created in less than 5 minutes ..... 

I'm not into AAI at all, so I sold my whole stash to a friend ... *wink* Rosie, now I will have to get some new stuff and some applicators ;)

Washi Tape at Twisted Tuesday Challenge!




Hi everyone! Welcome to our Twisted Tuesday Challenges!


THE CHALLENGE


Use Washi tape, fabric tape, etc. on your creation

THE TWIST

Use something that begins with a "T" or a "A" or a "P" or a "E" on your creation.
(other than the washi tape that is)

Examples: T = teal, twine, thread, etc. / A = acetate, apple, aqua, alcohol markers etc. / P = pearls, paint, pink, etc. / E = embossing, echo park paper, etc.

This is my take ....

  I stamped the brown circles on regular masking tape from DH's workshop ;)

Card based on a layout sketch .....

When I saw the layout sketch at Sketch-N-Scrap I immediately knew the look of the card I was going to create. 

I just love the very versatile stamps from Crafty Impressions and of course the cute birds on the wire ;)

This is my take .....


An African MOO from my friend ....

.... unfortunately Gitte doesn't have a blog, that would keep this beatiful creation somewhere without being noticed. 

I have entered it for her at this weeks challenge at MOO MANIA, hop on over and see all the other wonderful Moos, Atc's, cards etc ....

My recent publication .....

..... in Stampers' Sampler Spring 2014

*HANG IN THERE!*








A new box ....

.... for all the Moos I have created so far. 

The one I made last year was too small already, so I covered an old package with paper and some die cuts, quite like it. The beautiful paper is from my Dutch friend Ira *wink*

12 Tags of 2014 .....

I know I shouldn't do this, but I a so bored without crafting, so I decided to start slowly on my tag, I still have my left hand to work with ;)

Since there was not much stamping to do, I managed to create this in half a day :(  .... and I'm so impatient with everything ......




Challenge #6 at 1-2-3 Get Scrappy!

Hi everyone!
Welcome to another challenge at 123 Get Scrappy!
Thanks so much for playing along with us each month.
Here is a brand new board for you to play with this month!
This is my take ...

Unfortunately the quality of my picture is very poor, I found it in an old suitcase, it was taken at my parents wedding in 1955.

Project Life 2013 or my "TWIST" .....

It's done! I finished 2013 and look forward to 2014. Looking at 2 years of "TWIST" ... The way I see things! makes me proud.
