I have had an unplanned blogging break! Why is it that life is going along so steadily one minute then the next it seems to be trauma after trauma?? What with the recent accident involving Zaid I thought that was enough to be dealing with, BUT on no, life has other ideas - my mother in law was rushed into hospital with a suspected heart attack at the weekend. After running some tests it was not a heart attack but severe unstable angina. She has had to go through an angiogram and angioplasty this week. Thankfully she is back home now so I can get back to crafting!!!
Anyway this week over on Simon Says Stamp and Show their theme is for you to create something "inspired by Wendy Vecchi". Daunting? YES, have you seen her stuff?? I am not the proud owner of any Wendy Vecchi stamps (yet) so had to make do with what I had! Most of the stuff I used is Tim Holtz (stamps, distress inks, grunge paper, embossing powder). The really genuinely rusty key is one which my kids found whilst digging in some mud, they came running in shouting "Mum we found a rusty key for your crafting" LOL, they are well trained. The watch parts are a mixture of some I bought off ebay and some from a local flea market, this is definitely a something old and something new project which fits in with The Artistic Stampers challenge.
This weeks Gingersnap Creations challenge is to go 3-dimensional and this is certainly that! I really enjoyed making this even though I have been wandering around all week with rainbow fingers and having to hide them when at work LOL.
I am also entering into the following challenge:
