I'm back

You may think from the title that I've been away, but no such luck. I haven't been able to spend much time on the puter due to a Migraine, nothing too severe but enough that I can't take the glare of the screen and my concentration levels have been zero. Still not completely over it but getting there enough to get crafting again. Sound a right windger don't I but I'm not after sympathy just wanted to put you in the picture just incase you missed me aarrhh!

Right back to the plot. The Tuesday Taggers challenge this week is to create a work of art from rubbish you would throw away. If you would like to join in and need some inspiration why not pop over and check out what the DT have come up with. You'll be impressed.

Well here's mine. Before

The tag which has a flap back & front was transformed into a little post it note booklet. I wouldn't really call it a "work of art" as requested for the challenge but it's made something fuctional and pretty from something ready for the recycling bin.

I covered the outside with an odd piece of paper printed from the Crafters Companions papercrafts CD and lined the inside with gold mirri board. The stamp is one which was free on a magazine , cut with a nestie and coloured (not too well) with whispers and a gold pen. The ribbons and pearls from stash.

Well that's it for now. I've still got Wendy's challenge and the Colour Create (Don't forget has now changed to Thursday) , I've also got a project to get done but I'll try and get back soon.

Hugs, Pat xx
