"Splashes Drips and Dribbles"

Hi every one , welcome to my room and thanks for calling in .

Had a fabulous crafting  afternoon with friend Jane . While Jane made up some cards I caught up with some die cutting . freezing cold outside but we were snug and warm with air con working well .

Now in between creating some new kits for Tuesday girls I quickly made up a tag
 for TAG TUESDAY

The theme is   "Splashes Drips and Dribbles"

The tag itself is made from some watercolour paper
 
I began by putting a couple of drops of  Bashful Blue ink into a saucer of water , dipping a tooth brush into that and flicking onto tag . As you can see a large drop fell so I lifted and tilted tag to make it run the length of tag .using coloured  Folk Art Paper Opaque and Pink liquid pearl  I created stems  flowers and a butterfly .

The words I took from Andrew Duhon, album , The Moorings .

                                 "it's gonna take a little rain
                                        to let the grass beneath us grow "

This tag was a challenge !

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne

Pup's home

Hello blog pals ..Happy Saturday to you . Hope that the weekend finds you well and warm / cool where ever you may be .

Talk about going outside ones comfort zone !
Just too scared to explore sometimes I think I am .
I have proudly completed my first Upright Diamond Shaped card .

When Adele invited me to create some samples for her I knew that I would have to push myself beyond CAS .
Look , if you can print,  read and follow the design these cards are really quite simple to make .
To get this kit, and many , many more  just visit for

Printables & Digital Craft Supplies - Instant Creativity

http://printable-craftshop.com/boutique/

Once I had mastered valley folds and mountain folds I was on my way to this finished card .



                                                              Closed

Putting the different pyramage parts together with foam dots was surprisingly  easy and I love the fun  colourful image .

Off now to watch the cricket on TV with Doug .
Be kind , give a smile away .

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne

Friendship

EDIT ..OOOPS this was scheduled  for last night , or so I thought,  but was still in draft ..


Hello from a very cold,  wintry Adelaide .
Tonight I am sharing a tag with the theme , "friendship"

Tag Tuesday has a fine selection of tags to share on the blog , created by a talented group of ladies . I do hope that you pop over to take a peep .

I do believe that the two story book  figures that I have chosen for my tag did become good friends .






I adhered a kraft tag onto some red card and left a small edge .

I cut some images from a 12x12 graphic45 paper,  The Magic of Oz, and added them to bottom of tag . I remember the Tin Man but not the Lion's name .

 

Now off to check out other DT tags and leave some blog love and then as it is already 12 midnight I had better head off to bed before my head hits the keyboard .

 

Have a great week blog pals .

 

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
