I finally managed to find some photos I took ages ago of stuff I wanted to blog. This card I made for Seona for her birthday at the start of January. I just love the soft ethereal look of this card ;-)

Home is Where the Heart Is

This months Challenge was Home is Where the Heart Is. It sounded a bit 'twee' to start with, and I couldn't get my head around it. Then I remembered this House Shrine I had tucked away and decided to work with grunging it up. I made the fabric heart, and tried to keep the grunge theme going (also helped by the fact I can't sew!!!).Finally I added various embellishments to finish the piece.

Paula's Tag

Paula chose the theme "Time and Place" for her tag. London is one of my favourite places, I spent my formative Teen / Adult years there, and it is still more home to me than anywhere else. I found a map in my stash which included this fab detail of London, so I had to incorporate it. I love how the shape of greater London fitted so well with the clock face, this piece came together so easily, it was just meant to be.

Carols Tag

This is the tag I made for Carol in our new Tag Swap Challenge. She chose the theme phrases. I admire Carols work so much, she is a true artist so this quote jumped out at me for her tag.
