W for Wheels

The W challenge, for our A-Z journal, was to use wings, a slight problem when I wanted my W page to be the wheel, well where would we be without the wheel? In the end I had a great idea and am really chuffed with how it turned out!

House at No 2 ATC

This weeks theme for the Altered Design ATC mingle was the number 2 so here mine is, a water wax crayon background then stamps.

4x4 swap

I am taking part in a 4x4 swap in my Google group, the theme is "winged things ". I decided to do something slightly different to my usual style and chose images of angelic children to whom I have added butterfly wings. Then added them to a painted and stamped background. One is slightly different as I fell in love with the dream one and decided to keep her.

Recipe book

One of our New Years Resolutions this year was to be a bit more adventurous about what we eat each night. I love cook books but only use them on special occasions, Andrew loves to cook now too so we have been scouring the Internet and magazines to find recipes to use. So of course I needed somewhere to keep the ones we like and here it is, made with the bind-it-all and vintage kitchen images, now all I have to do is sit down and write them all in !

Valentines Card

This was Andrews valentines card for this year, he liked it but said it was a bit pink !! I ask you what colour should it of been black !!

V for Volunteers

V was for Volunteers in my A-Z album, I had to use the Red Cross in my page as it is very dear to my heart as I was a member for almost 10 years as a youth leader, instructor and first aider, so I found this wonderful poster on the net and as the challenge was to use vellum printed out on vellum and then used red German scrap as a frame, simple but I like it.

Snow in Bristol !

This past week Bristol has had the most snow it has had in years, so I have been creative in a different way, well I have to build a snowman where ever there is enough snow ! Has made up a tiny bit for not being able to get to Austria this year as I am now waiting for op number 3 in 18 months on my ankle, so I have been been stuck in the house all week as my ankle isn't strong enough to cope with the slippery pavements.
