Birthday POE stcards

HOW DID I NEARLY MISS THIS!!!!!

Thank goodness the ladies at 
are on the case!

So after a manic morning I now have 
4 POEstcards :D

 I(not surprisingly) have several collections of 
Poe related digi images....
I used My Craft Studio to create 4 collage pieces
 The kit includes background papers, so I printed one
 of those off and used it to cover my postcard blanks.
 Cut out and glued...
 before adding some verdigris and black embossing powder
around the edges.
 A quick blast of satin varnish and a few 
black peel offs and done :D
The quotes are also from the digi kit...
 "I became insane with long intervals of horrible Sanity"
 "I felt I breathed an atmosphere of Sorrow"
 " We loved with a love that was more than Love"
" And this maiden she lived with no other thought
than to love and be loved by me"

Box of Junk

We all hoard "junk" or as we call it
"treasure" lol
So what better way to use it up than by making a 
"Treasure box"
*inspired by another Ina Solsbery vid*

I kept this old box because my youngest had "decorated" it...
 a layer of crumpled tissue for texture...
 White gesso....
 stuff I would never have put together in a million years
on any other project lol...
 more gesso and paint....
 I nearly left it at this point as it looked quite creepy,
 but I was determined to try the faux tarnished metal look
 So after many drippings and dryings...
 adding paints and wiping aways...
 I now have a box to treasure :D
See I knew they would all come in useful one day...

Enjoy :D XXX

Thanking You!

Time for a new challenge for a 
new year over at 
but first I would like to thank you for all the amazing entries to the
extended "Christmas" challenge...
they were beyond gorgeous and it took me ages to choose
the top 3.


sponsored by 

*using "Flower Elf" from Fabrika Fantasy*

After all the grey/cold/snowy weather I NEEDED
something warm and bright (shame the light didn't
 agree with me)
the design papers are from my seemingly bottomless
stash...and the rich maroon is "flock"!!!
I used my trusty Promarkers to match her cute
little outfit with the ditsy floral paper*which is glittered*
and cut a sentiment with a Tattered Lace die.

Enjoy :D XXX

We have 3 sponsors for this challenge,
the 3rd being 

 the image I have used is 
but after colouring and fussy cutting  I think 
she makes a very pretty Christmas Fairy :D
The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed.
 Simply matted onto shiny holographic and 
foiled card stock..
subtle colouring with promarkers...
she only needed a little sparkle adding to her wings ...
and a star for her headband :D

I would like to enter her for the following challenges;
