Allsorts - recycle or upcycle

the challenge at Allsorts this week is themed Recycle or upcycle. So I thought I'd share my fairy door that I made for the garden.

I started with some popsicle sticks and wooden blocks. Distressed everything with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain, then glued the popsicle sticks for a door and the wooden blocks for stairs.

We are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and Scrapper's Delight this week so hurry over and enter. I'm sure there are lots of things you can recycle and make wonderful projects from.

Allsorts - roses

the challenge at Allsorts this week is themed Roses. The most wonderful of flowers, especially on craft projects ;)

I have made a card using a Hanglar image, paper from Pion design and lots of white acrylic paint to get a shabby chic feel to the card. It's a card for one of my collegues at work - guess her subject ;).

Allsorts - pearls and gems

time for a new challenge at Allsorts, and the theme is pearls and gems. I made a card for a beloved collegue who is moving on to greener pastures :( Wishing her the best but still can't get to terms with the fact that she's gone.
Using an image from Mo Manning and paper from Prima (I think...) I used pearls but not gems but that's ok too :)

Allsorts - Use a butterfly

time for a new challenge at Allsorts and this time we want you to use a butterfly. I used lots of them by stamping and gold embossing them to white paper distressed with Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet, Tumbled Glass and Vintage Photo.

And for those of you wondering about my sewing project last week, I went to a hen party that included pole dancing and I figured a nude suit would be the perfect outfit for that :). So this is a picture of the lovely bride to be :)
