Anything Goes challenge..

Time for a new challenge over at Anything Goes.

This weeks theme is called Let it snow...

(click to enlarge)

Ooooh.... this was soooooo much fun to make! I followed the instructions on page 16 of the December issue of Craft Stamper..

Altho.. getting the stamped image to shrink to the right size on shrink plastic is another story!! only, took me 4 attempts! hehe..

(reverse of gift bag..)

... different componements of the gift bag..

The Baroque die is just lovely.. I used Distress Inks for the background.. white embossing powder for the  trees & a gorgeous ornate plate.. all available from the Craft Den.

I spoke to Lynne on the telephone last Friday & received my order the next day.. can't be bad for an impatient crafter like me!

Luckily, I had a break from vertigo last weekend & I was able to have a little crafty me time... still no computer.. & it nearly cost a divorce getting help from home to upload my photographs  onto DD's laptop! ggr!

The Design Team have got some gorgeous inspiration to share with you over at Anything Goes. We had a whooping 154 players last week.. woohoo! Thank you everyone..xx

I've been suffering quite badly again from vertigo this week & can't spend long on my Netbook at all.. just waiting now for a referral to come through..

Hope everyone is well & keeping warm & safe in this bad weather.

Happy crafting, Gez.xx

  10. This is absolutely fab but I am so sorry that the vertigo is still bothering you. Wish there was something they could do to get you back to normal health.

  11. It's lovely, and good for you for persevering with the shrink plastic.
    Re. Art Journal Caravan - it has been a good year & I have enjoyed it but won't repeat. It consists of weekly prompts for journalling rather than any arty tips about how to decorate the journal. I would say there is more focus on digital but it's fine to do mixed media.
