Alcoholic Curiosities...

... no, not me, I never touch a drop... unless of course, it is the fab Alcohol Ink from Ranger, which, I have to say, are one of my favest things in my stash... today is Monday, which means... a new theme for the Compendium of Curiosities from Linda... click her name to see all the deets... but it is a fabby thing to do - this week she has chosen Page ... well, I will let you have a look to see how to and what to do :O))




I made a tag - I know, I know, another one.. but.. this challenge is gonna run for 35 weeks so I am planning to do all of them as tags then do .. erm... something with them LOL I followed the instructions on Page...*aha, you don't catch me out that easy* and then added some stamping with Tim Holtz Collection mini's... using Archival ink and drying with a heat gun. All the stashy bits used are available from The Artistic Stamper.




I also did a piece of glossy card which will be turned into a card later today... I used the same colours but look how different each piece is... just shows what you can make and so easily too :O)




I better get a wriggle on... tis our Wedding Anniversary today... 8 years married already... Gawd knows where the time whizzes off to... we are going to have a picnic by the river again I think...tis gorgeous weather today again :O)) Thanks for looking...have a goodly day ... TTFN
