Rabbits or Hares....

The choice is yours..this is the theme for this fortnights tag challenge. It was chosen by Wilma, who sadly will leaving us and this will be her last Dt challenge over at Tag Tuesday
You know that having so many stamps can be a pain, I know I have some  hare and rabbit stamps, could I find I couldn't.

In the end I used my Peter Rabbit stamp, it's never been used, I picked it up in a sale somewhere, along with another stamp of Jemima Puddleduck.
Peter with his blue jacket that I painted, along with the mushroom/toadstools, also another sale stamp  that I used for the background, finally adding some bunting.

Bright Pencil Case

It's the 5th of the month, so it's time for this months challenge over at More Mixed Media.
As always it is Mixed Media, but with an optional twist, this month the twist is "Green"
My project is this super pencil case, it's very sturdy and took the bright green acrylic paint really well.

Once the paint was completely dry I rubber stamps a few images all over the case.
I then stencilled dots over the lid in orange acrylic paint and once dry I used a paint pen and painted some dots inside the orange ones.
I left the case overnight to completely dry before spraying with a glossy sealer..actually I am really pleased with this, I love the colour.
So why not drop by and enter our challenge..there is a prize on offer for the winner.
You can find us here at

Choose a favourite stamp.

Joan has chosen a super theme for this fortnights challenge over at Tag Tuesday the theme is "Your Favourite Stamp"  For me that was difficult as I love stamping so I have so many and to choose just one was so hard.

In the end I went with this stamp, it's years old and one I have used many times over the years and I can relate so well to the sentiment too.
 I have re-purposed a couple of clothes tags for this tag, the base tag and the gray one.
On the main tag I used oxide inks, then stamped over that when it was dry.
The image was stamped on to some spare card and layered over the 2nd gray tag.
Would love to see your favourite stamp, please come and join us at

Pretty Little Trinket Box.

Good Morning...after the glorious weather we have had recently, it has now got a lot cooler...and wetter today, so I am staying home today. Would you believe that this time last year we had snow!

As some of you may know I own a challenge blog called Rhedd's Creative Spirit, I have been running challenges for 5+ years now and I think now is the time to retire. So this month is our very last challenge.
I will of course continue to craft and blog here, I couldn't manage without it, like many of us it's a great way to relax, think and mull things over.

My last project for Rhedd's is this lovely hexagonal wooden Trinket Box that's been on the shelf in my craft room for about 3years, so high time I got around to doing something with it.

I sealed the wood with black gesso inside and out, then gave it 2 coats of black acrylic paint.
Once dry I lined the inside of the box with black felt.
I added the cotton lace around the box and added the string bow.
For the top,I just layered that up with some burlap, lace,a strip of fabric, brass leaves and flowers and another string bow.

I felt it needed a little something more, so decided to add the watch with the key and chain.

Do pop over and check out our last challenge, it would be lovely to see you there.
