Izzy Whizzy, Lets Get Busy

Ok...where to begin.

Its still the kids holiday time from school here at the moment so life is still very hectic.

Inbetween all the hectic kerfuffle here I've been making and stamping all sorts of things whilst at the same time being 'Mum', (most of which can't be shown just yet as its top secret stuff, but in the pipeline is Art Journey and Paper Artsy (soon all will be revealed) and I'm also working on the new recently released Crafty Individuals and PBS stamps. I've something very different for myself lined up with Stampotique (and very challenging). All very exciting but keeping me extremely busy. AND Craft Stamper magazine is due out at the end of this week- I have an article using a fab plate from Innovation Stamp Creations.

phew!

Meanwhile....back at the ranch...(ok, its a converted bungalow, but it doesnt have the same thrill factor does it lol) I've been working on more Paperbag Studios. Have you managed to check out the challenges yet? If you have some PBS stamps you should hop on over there and give the challenges each month a whirl. Theres a prize- and as the saying goes, you have to be in it to win it. Whats to lose?



Here it is closer in. Still not too clear really as there's a lot of texture and detail that just disppears on a small scale- (please click on the image for a larger view if need be.)
Its a hanging on an old piece of ripped cardboard (echoing the corrogated digi elements I printed and cut out) using lots of collage pieces and stamping all from Paperbag Studios.



This piece also ties in nicely with this weeks Lots to Do challenge which is Words. I have a phrase and foreign words on the tree :0)

Lots to blog this week I think so keep an eye open if you are passing by. Thanks for popping in.
