Sunday Stamper - Week 168 - Our House

Goodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all. Many thanks for the fabby entries last week and it was grand to see so many new participants too! The theme this week is... HOUSES/HOME. To join in with the challenge is simples.. make a little piece of art - it can be anything you fancy, add in some stamping and the theme... pop back here and leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can hop on over to see you. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 27th August 2011.

This week I have to admit that I have been a little busy - and whilst all plans to make my entry were there, waiting to be made, I had to shelve them... basically, I was going to make something on Friday night and then I got involved in a game of Words With Friends on Facebook.. well, all time went out of the window... but the sad thing is that the game was with Grim... who was sitting not 10 metres away from me in his study rofl

So... this week I am showing the beeswax "house" that I taught at yesterday's class. The wooden frame was painted with Eco Paints and then I stamped some Paper Artsy images onto cosmetic tissues. The centre piece is a piece of card that has been painted, stamped and beeswaxed and then a little mini canvas added for the sentiment. Ten Seconds Studios metal makes the floral embellishment on the frame and I added a little beeswaxed paper rose to the top. I am going to try and make something else on Monday for another entry... if I am not too pooped after my weekend of yakking and getting crafty lol

I would just like to say thank you to Caz, Sylvia, Barb, Jan, Thelma and Alison for a fab day yesterday... much hilarity and lots of cake/sweets/chocolate/coffee/tea (and yes, I actually remembered who drank what and made them properly this time lol) And thank you to Colin and Wendy for their excellent hospitality... Colin makes a mean Shepherd's Pie and Wendy made a divine apple cumble with real custard..... nomnomnomnomnom.... Right, I am in needs of some beauty sleeps... got my UTEE class today... I needs to be fresh as a daisy! Thanks for looking.... TTFN
