I CHOSE "EYES" AS MY THEME
THE FIRST ONE USES A FABULOUS STAMP AS THE MAIN IMAGE OF THE EYES FROM THIRD COAST STAMPS. I'VE ADDED SOME ORANGE JEWELS JUST TO MAKE THEM APPEAR MORE EERY. I'VE ALSO USED A BACKGROUND IMAGE FROM THE STAMP CONNECTION TO MAKE IT LOOK AS THOUGH THE ANIMAL IS BEHIND A CAGE. EXTRA STAMPS ON THE BACKGROUND OF THE BOOKMARK ARE FROM CHERRY PIE.
THE SECOND IMAGE ALSO USES CHERRY PIE STAMPS ON A COASTER.
LET ME KNOW IF YOU JOIN IN WITH THE CHALLENGE - I'D LOVE TO COME AND SEE YOUR EYES.
2cre8art have a great challenge up this week - Jigsaws pieces. I couldn't get hold of any jigsaw pieces quick enough but I do have some great Cherry Pie stamps in the shape of jigsaws. I stamped them onto mountboard and coloured them - the one on the left was coloured in with Stampin Up marker pens, the one on the right with Luminart inks - it has a great shimmer to it.
ART FREEBIES CHALLENGE GAVE US A COBWEB BACKGROUND TO WORK WITH -
ONCE AGAIN MY CHERRY PIE STAMPS GOT AN AIRING. THERE IS A SILVER EMBOSSED MOON IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER - NOT SURE IF YOU CAN SPOT IT. THE WORDING ON THE DRESS SAYS:
"THOSE WHO DON'T BELIEVE IN MAGIC WILL NEVER FIND IT"
DARING CARDMAKERS THEME THIS WEEK IS WOMEN - ANYTHING SO LONG AS ITS FEMALE. HERE'S MY IMAGE:

Another new challenge site for me this week Saturday Surprise asked us to do a Sewing Basket. Well, I'm not much good at sewing - I can just about sew on a button so don't really have a sewing basket. But its amazing what you find in your stash and I found these embellishments - I knew they'd come in handy one day.
I'm chuffed to see I made it on to the Wednesday Stamper sampler last week. Two in one week - now....there was only one ambition I had left - I wonder did I make it???????
YES I DID - woohoo - its been an ambition to be featured on an Arty Girlz sampler and I managed the very last one - thanks girls - hurry back!!!!

Another new challenge blog for me today was Art Freebies - the art we were given was a piece of papyrus.
I rummaged around my rubber stamps and found some Egyptian style ones I'd forgotten about but which I felt were perfect for this image.

I HAVE TO LIST FIVE THINGS I'M ADDICTED TO: GULP - I DON'T THINK I CAN THINK OF 5!
1. The first one has to be checking emails - I'm addicted to it!!!! and feel so unloved if all I get is spam! LOL!
2. Green & Black's dark chocolate - well I don't drink much and don't smoke so a girl needs one vice - doesn't she???? And, it's good for me!!!!
3. Inchies - anyone who knows me would be shocked that I like these little things as I can't bear doing anything fiddly - so I have no idea why I love making inchies!
NOPE - I CAN ONLY THINK OF 3! I HAVE TO NOMINATE SOME FRIENDS TO LEARN ABOUT THEIR ADDICTIONS:
