A pair of ATCs

Here's my take on our latest craft group swap challenge for a pair of ATC's with the theme "Wings".  I like these old booth photos and had fun making them look like a couple split apart and thinking of each other.

Must get on with my Christmas cards shortly, time seems to be flying by too - its nearly November!  Thanks for stopping by.

Altered shopping lists

Well, I thought I'd get cracking with my stocking fillers and did a couple of these for starters.  The plain shopping list pads are really cheap at from the stationers.  I wish I could remember the site I got the inspiration from as they were delightful and included a decorated gift bag but I can't find it again.  I recently got some Magnetic Craft Tape from Docrafts which was self-adhesive and makes it so easy to apply.  The dress form and the little Notes pad come off the shopping pads and can be used as 'fridge magnets. 

I think one of these with a nice pen or pencil in a gift bag will look great.  Hope you are getting some crafting time in while its cold and wet outside!

Halloween tag

Well I've not been doing much lately (except enjoying a late holiday in Skye) so it was good to get some inspiration for a spooky tag from Clare here as I needed to make one for our Halloween swap at my craft club.  Really pleased how it turned out and although you can't see much of the stamped tissue background, it was really easy to do following Clare's tutorial and instructions on Tim Holtz' blog.

 and this is the back of the tag:

Hope my swap partner likes it!  Thanks for calling by and hope you're getting up to some nice messy crafting yourselves.
