Black and one other colour .......

Does not have to be boring......  Over at the Anything Goes Challenge blog this fortnight our theme is black and one other colour (excluding hair and skin).

As a member of Docrafts I regularly participate in the Friendship swap organised on the forums every month and take great pleasure in both making and receiving my cards.

With this in mind I put my new Timmy stamps to good use and have made my card in Black and Yellows.

I used my fav umbrella man and birds as inspiration for this card and have used TH distress inks and a couture creations embossing folder as well.  The papers are from the papermania capsule collections.  And of course I stamped using Versamark inks.

I have fallen in love with Timmy all over again ....... his inspriational sentiments inspire me to make everyday worth living and to fill it with joy.

A quick hello to Mel who received this card.  I know she loved it.

So come on hop on over the the Anything Goes challenge blog and have a go at this fortnights challenge.  The other girls have made some wonderful inspriational projects for you to look at.  Don't forget that the Craft Den has some fab online shopping as well.

I have this week been busy doing my homework for a project that my friend Sacha is teaching me.  Sacha has just set up her own blog and is now also a member of DC.

Also keep an eye on my blog over the next week or so - I have used Tim again and can't wait to show you and there will be blog candy soon.

Hugs to you all

I've got Tim Holtz on my ........

Hi to all my fellow crunchies.  How are you all doing?

As some of you guys know I have had a really rough year so far, but am getting there and as a little bit of inspiration I decided to use some good old Timmy to cheer me up every day.

Yep I've had Tim tattooed on my person.  The first was done last week and the second is being done tomorrow:

I have decided to use two of Timmy's inspiration pieces to make me believe that life does go on and that I can do it ........ so here's the first.  Its still a bit bruised but is looking fantastic.  And it's true we should live in the moment and make is so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.  Cause I know now that they pass way to quickly.  Check back next week to see what I am having done tomorrow.

What do you think Timmy would say????  

CUITE PIE CHALLENGE NO 19 - Easel with a sketch.
Over on my other blog - The Cutie Pie Challenge - we are having a brilliant challenge this fortnight.  It is an easel card using an optional sketch.  We are being sponsored by the fantastic Stamp and Create store  and the fabulous Kenny K.  I just love the Kenny K images and have chosen Lady Victoria to work with

I used some freebie papers from a my stash - they were from last year and have stamped them with cogs from Creative Creations Steampunk stamps.  The sentiment is also from this set.  I have layered the papers and edged them with the fantastic edging tool by good old Timmy.  The beautiful flower is an old brooch.  The flowers are from stock. 

Why don't you hop on over and see what the other girlies have come up with.  Their creations are stunning and I would love it if you joined in.
