Skinny, Maison & Tag

Woah! Where did the summer go?? Last week I got sunburnt, today I've brought my baby tomato plants in to stop them dying of frostbite!! British weather - don't you just love it!!!

I've been having a very busy weekend but not achieved very much. I haven't done the Skinny Saturday challenge for a while (probably because it wasn't there for a while!! LOL!!) but I've done it this week because, like so many millions out there, I've been bitten by the House bug - almost literally; I really need to get some domestics done!! LOL!! Here's my offering:


It IS a skinny, I promise, but I couldn't resist hanging the extra bit on the bottom - this is going on my craftroom wall as I'm really pleased with it.

I've been uuming and aaahing over whether or not to show this off because it's another page of the House Book I have been making for months. Over on Dans ma maison this week, il y'un papillon (and there endeth my knowledge of the French language!!) and as luck would have it, one of my pages (my garden page) has a butterfly - OK I didn't make it this weekend but I gave in in the end and decided to include it anyway:


And over on Tag, You're It! this week our theme has been Pretty & Feminine and this was my offering. I used my gorgeous Maribel stamp again by Gunhild at Stempelglede. However, my camera hasn't picked up the pretty colours very well and I think I've discovered what the problem is all of a sudden - I bought one of those twisty energy-saving lightbulbs and I don't think it gives the same blast of light. That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!! LOL!!

I am also halfway through 2 other challenges but I've had to abandon them for now for the sake of my children having smart, clean uniforms tomorrow!! LOL!! Hopefully I might be able to get them finished this evening. Don't you just love Sundays!!
Thanks for stopping by!! ;o)

  17. they are very beautiful....love the house what a lot of work. You asked how I did the bird on my tag, very easy, it was a mask made by Hedi Swapp...first time I used that one, and I also liked the way it turned out. I love the tag challenges, I love doing tags....and the work that everyone does is simply amazing.
