WOYWW 47 & a card


Morning, This is getting to be my favoraite part of the week lol WOYWW 47 With Julia, I really do enjoy seeing what every one is up to and chatting to you all. It's also fast becoming aday I don't get much craft done because I go to so many blogs lol Although I did get one of my frames finished from last week if you want to have a look Here as well as a few other projects this week. So this is my desk today. I am doing something I haven't done before. I bought this chip board tag book from Maya Road a few months ago I really would like to make a mini book of some kind. I decided the Title as you can see is 'Travel' So I am going to be working on this on and off this week. I have also put a card below if you want to have a we nosey ;0) I will be going snooping around your blogs through out the day xx


Hello, Blogger has changed, again. Looks like we have a spell checker and we can add videos again now. It's also changed how you upload your photos again which I am not sure about. Any way I made a card for a few challenges as I was feeling I little laps with the ol' mojo. This is for The shabby tea room they have a photo for inspiration. Stampavie & More They are asking for distressed card this week, there is also DT positions available. The Play Date Cafe Which is a lovely colour combo of brown, blue, grey & cream Die Cut Dreams ch (DCD) which this week is hand made flowers Wednesday Stamper They would like you to use some thing Tim Holtz (I ask you now this wasn't hard for me at all lol). It's also for Midnight Madness Which is to follow sketch 51. If you have time why not pop along and go have a look, They have some wonderful DT egs and some prizes too!Like modpodge some stamps and lovely DT papers so pop along for more information and to join in.


I made this card to help me get back into gear with my mojo as I felt a bit slow and groggy. So it's nice to have a sketch and colour scheme planned to give you a bases to start. I decided to use a die and cut out some flowers with material I singed the edges then stamped I love the effect. I put this on top of a paper Dollie which I had already distressed  and added to some card stock as well as some textured card stock which I sanded and used a punch on.


I then stamped an image from one of the Alice in Wonderland sets I have and used Sepia Archival ink, I was going to add some colour either with copics or chalk for a change then I decided I quite liked the effect as it was. I hope you like this too, Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Stamps, Oxford Impressions & Tim Holtz. Card stock, Co'Ordinations & SU. Paper Doilie from stash. Inks, Distress inks & Archival. Lace from Craft Boutique. Die, Tattered Florals byTim Holtz.

Your desk looks like a hive of creativity today! I really need to try and get one of those ink blenders to have a play with. Molly and I are watching Pirates 3 at the mo :)

This has become my favorite day, too. I so enjoy snooping and seeing what everyone is doing. I really love the baskets. They look like the perfect storage solution. That tag book looks really interesting. And the card is adorable. The closeup really puts it in perspective. You may think you are groggy, but I think your art is fabulous.

Dawn, your image looks right out of the Alice in Wonderland Book. My book club read this last year and I was enthralled by the pictures in the book. I am glad someone made them into stamps as they are awesome. You did a beautiful job with the sketch this week. Thank you for playing along with us this week at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. Hope to see you again soon and good luck with the prize drawings.

Bear Hugs,
