Stars, Bunting and Animals

Hi Everyone ,

How are you all? Thank you for all your  lovely comments on my post last week I was simply amazed how many people stopped by to have a look. This week I am entering my TAG into a few challenges as its coming near to Christmas i seem to be busy busy busy....and not in the good sense of crafting either....although all this crafting equipment and not managed to make a single Christmas card yet. Anyway i digress this is entered into 

Simon Says Stamp and Show Stars as does Hels Sheridan over at Sunday Stampers
Allsorts Challenge Blog says Bunting or Pennants 
Pan Pastel Says Animals ......ok so its not a massive animal or that's not the main image but if you look very closely there is a cat albeit a small one but hey .
Hels thanks for the top tip for Art Journaling managed to get on a taster session with Dyan and Kate next week ......your a wee gem. 

 I was in a brown mood  today so used all distress inks that had even a hint of brown before i did that though i picked up a tip from Lin Browns blog about putting some multi medium down first to create a bit of texture ......I really like how its gave the effect here so thanks Lin. Then I added some bitty grunge Tim Holtz stamps... the star and the wurly gig  (circles i mean) and then stamped with one of the Gorjuss stamps .......

And finally I had a molly bloom bunting stamp lying around so stamped that on to Tim Lost and Found paper stash and cut it out ....

So a straight forward entry this week but it will get worse before it gets better...... with 4 year old twins, who i have to make a donkey costume and a lamb costume by next week for their nativity eeeeek ...first one though so looking forward to it bring out the hankies i say !!!!

Thanks again for stopping by and i will catch up with you soon take care Mandy x
