A Shell in your Pocket

 Tag Tuesday still has a week left of their challenge.

The theme, chosen by design team member Wendy is Shells.

Here is my tag....

 I have used stamps from Crafty Individuals and Artistic Outpost and the shells are from my stash, along with the orange mesh that was holding my oranges.

Giraffe Postcard

 It's sunday, time for another challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art

The theme this sunday is Giraffes, chosen by Rosie

A few weeks ago, I went to the zoo with a couple of the younger members of my family, they were totally in awe of the Giraffes.

They look so majestic, although I don't like to see animals in captivity, I do understand the need to keep certain species going, far to many animals have become extinct.

Don't you think Giraffes have the most amazing eye lashes.....

Here is my postcard, a digital piece this time.

The images are from Songbirdy, over at Mischief Circus, which is sadly closing down on 12th September.

 Time again for another great challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art.

The theme "Games" was chosen by Peggy.

For my postcard I used a fab set of stamps from Darkroom Door.

I've had these stamps for quite a few years....and you can still buy them. Have to admit they are a lovely set and just perfect for my postcard.

Blue & Orange Masculine Tag

 Michele has chosen the theme for Tag Tuesday Challenge, Blue and Orange.

She has made some fabulous tags too, very feminine, whereas mine is masculine. I admire the feminine feel using these colours, but I just could not create anything other than a masculine theme with the colour combo.

It's weird how colour often dictates which way we go creatively, it can throw me off completely sometimes.

Here is my Tag, I have used Tim Holtz stamps and die cut.
I just love the sentiment, it's so true...

I am entering my Tag in to the challenge at More Mixed Media...Brights.

Old Age.....

It's all been a bit of a rush, having fallen behind with my craft projects recently as my home decorating is occupying most of my time.
The theme over at Sunday Postcard Art is very apt for me at the moment as I am definitely feeling my  age whilst I am decorating, lol.
The theme "Old Age" was chosen by this weeks host Marion. I just had to find time to join in because I had the perfect stamp, one from years ago that has only seen the daylight two or three times through lack of use!

Bright Bubbles...

 It's the 5th of the month, so time for another monthly challenge over at More Mixed Media.

As always it is Anything Goes, but with an optional colour twist, this month the twist is Brights.

We also have some fabulous digital papers for the Winner, plus a badge...and badges too for our Top5 from our Boss Lady Lozzy.

My design team project this month is a large tag, that I stamped all over with IndigBlu's bubble stamp.

I coloured random bubbles with pens and dotted a  few with posca white pen.
The figure is a stamp by Dina Wakley, which I left black and white to stand out from the background.
The sentiment I created and printed off and then added to my Tag.
I love this Tag with its bright colours, it actually matches the vision in my head when I thought about the bright colours,lol.
I hope you can find time to pop along and join in with our challenge, you can find us here at 

I am entering my Tag in to these fab challenges at 
Love to Craft Challenge Blog ( Anything Goes )

My Floral Tag

 Over at Tag Tuesday Pinky has chosen the theme, Floral/Flowers and I had just the stamp for it too.

Over a white tag I stamped my images and just gently coloured in random leaves and flowers.

I also stamped separately a section of the stamp so I could cut and create a small posy to add to the tag.

Showing the posy...

Do pop over and join in with our challenge if you can, it still has another week to run.
You can find it here at Tag Tuesday.

Tears of a Clown

 Susan B has chosen the theme this week over at Sunday Postcard Art

Well, the theme got me thinking, I was going to go with the lyrics of the song and build around that or use a Pierrot image and build around

I also decided to do a digital postcard, as I have mentioned before, I'm not that great at it, but the more I do, the more I learn, hopefully.

As you can see I decided to use Pierrot....

I tweaked around with the colour palette and eventually chose this one as my favourite.
