I've Been Tagged!

.... and I never felt a thing! Thanks Rachel and Ann, now I guess I have to tell you 7 interesting things about me!!!

1) I have a third nipple!
2) I am left-handed and so is my OH
3) I've worked abroad. When I was young I worked in Germany, and more recently in India
4) When I saw AC/DC in concert Angus Young came into the crowd on a roadies shoulders and some of his sweat landed on me!!!
5) I love music, especially rock guitar stuff, and sexy blokes like Lenny Kravitz!
6) I hate Kareoke and am very shy, so who can tell me why I have performed twice in the space of a month - I think I'm changing as I get older - uh oh!
7) I love cuddles and back rubs - especially when I am cold!

OK, YOU CAN WAKE UP NOW!!!!! Not very exciting but hopefully there's still time! Dont think there is anyone left to tag who hasn't been done already!

Sunday Stampers - Week 13!

Tina set the Sunday Stamper challenge this week cus its her birthday (Happy Birthday Tina) and she chose the theme `Faces'. Aha, I thought! I've got just the stamp, its a Cats Life Press stamp which I bought a while ago and hadn't used. So I made this tag which I covered in some lovely paper and I added the phrase which is another Cats Life Press stamp, the hinges are Grungeboard from Tim Holtz which I coloured using my `ginger' adirondak pen and finished off with a ribbon!

Altered Tub

I saved an old gravy granules tub as I thought it might make a handy pen holder, so the other day I decided to alter it, and this is the end result, complete with pens!

My first Altered Domino

I have recently joined a domino swap on Craft Swap Forum where we have to alter a domino! First challenge was finding some white ones but I was chatting to the landlady of my local pub (The Pickwick) and she gave me a whole set of white ones for nothing - how lucky am I!

Anyway, I covered the image with Wild Plum alcohol ink and then stamped over it with black stazon using this cute cat stamp from Paper Artsy. Hope Chrissie likes it :)

Lola ...... again!!!!

OK I know this is getting boring now, but here is another card I made with the same stamp!!!! Perhaps I should buy some more - what do you think - perfect excuse or what!!!!

Furry Friends

This week's My Time to Craft Challenge is `Furry Friends'! I have this real cute house mouse stamp so I thought I would use him to make an ATC - he looks like he's on a mission doesn't he!!! Hope you like it :)

The Sunday Stampers

This week's Sunday Stampers Challenge was set by Lesley in honour of her birthday, and her theme was `Green' (cus its her favourite colour). I dont know why but I dug out this stamp, I haven't really used it much and I dont know why cus she is quite unusual!! Anyway, I made this card, stamped in green adirondack lettuce ink, layered up on different green textured card, added a green ribbon and a brown flower (I know it doesn't look brown, but it is!), and a couple of brads, oh yes, and I used chalks to dull down the white card!
