Honey I'm Home!

I feel like I've been away for a month! I had a great week down at Denman college, my assignments have all been finished and signed off, so it's just a case of waiting till May to see if I've passed!
So having eaten huge amounts of cake and home made biscuits, I'm back trying to be good again!
I am sorry not to have been peeking around the blogs as much over the last few weeks, but I'm now have that rare thing "spare time" again lol, and I will do my best to catch up over the next few days. Although on Wednesday I have to look after Adam Hensen at out Spring Council meeting at Llangollen, such a hard job, but somebody has to do it lol. xxx

Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary Challenge

Having a break from paperwork and adding a little more in to my journal, well one of my journals, I now have three on the go lol.
I decided this book I would keep for mermaids and and all things seaside, as I'm lucky enough to live a ten minute walk from the beach.
I've always been facinated by the sea and the thought of another world at the bottom of it, and of course mermaids, beautiful mystical creatures with jewel like scales and flowing hair, making full use of the seabed as their playgound..
This is still a work in progress, but I didn't want to miss out on entering it in to the Apha/Dictionary Challenge over at the Craft Barn.
Back to the books now, yawn. Elizabeth xxx

Dragons Dream TIO #137 Green, Die Cuts and Cogs

Here we are again for another challenge at the Dragons Dream TIO. This time Tracey has chosen the theme of Green, Die Cuts and Cogs for us.
The background of my tag is made up of several different green distress inks and I now have matching hands lol. I stencilled over the top with pine needles through my most used template, this one lives on the desk!
The cogs have all been cut in Kanban cardstock using a spellbinders die, and then inked with black soot. I was feeling pretty pleased with myself this week as I've done my cogs in another colour than the usual brown, then I realised I hadn't used a stamp, whoops!!! So hence the TH clock face came to the rescue along with my scribbled wording with a Sharpie pen.
The challenge this time will be running over three weeks as I will be away at Denman College stuffing my face with cake, I mean studying hard to finish my course lol, but they do make us eat cake quite a lot!!!
Please pop over and join in the challenge, you will find a link on my sidebar, just remember to use at least one real stamp on your tag and keep your inky fingers crossed for me ;)
