First of all I would like to wish all my blog followers a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year.
I would also like to take a moment to remember absent friends and family and send a big hug out to any other people who are missing loved ones (for whatever reason) at this time of year.
It is inspiration Monday over at Crafty Bloggers Network and I have something a little different for you today, it is a star that I made using the Docrafts digital designer template and then I Tangled it
Why not hop over and see what the other members of the design team have for you.
It has been a while since I blogged one of my Swap Bot swaps so I thought I would share this Mandala I have created for December’s swap. I found another challenge blog for Zentangle called The Bright Owl Zendala Dare. The mandala template is Number 32 and I had great fun with it, I used some linnen effect paper to add a little interest and texture and I am really pleased with how it turned out.
I am super excited as I am going to Hobby Crafts Fair at the SECC in Glasgow on Sunday and I am looking forward to spending the day browsing great craft products without having to worry about my boys being bored or getting into mischief (oh and bagging a few bargains as well!)
Before I go though I have a couple of tags to share with you, another swap with the same group as the Celtic ATC, the tag theme was Zentangle. I havent shared any of my tangled things with you in a while so here are my tags:
It has been a while since I posted an ATC so I thought I would share this one with you all, It is for an owl ATC swap over at Swap Bot.
This week has been one of those hectic weeks where I seem to be running around everywhere and not seeming to get very much done! I did however post a parcel of 10 card samples off on Wednesday (more about those next week ;). I heard that my Piano Keys ATC that I made for a swap has arrived safely so here it is:
As promised here is the 2nd nameplate I did for our oldest, I did this one just a little different and went a little closer to the letters of his name. The boys think they are great, I have framed them in a lovely black and silver frame and now I just need to find something to hang them up on the wall with.
