So here are my Sunday offerings - Turquoise for So Salsa and Sisters for Sunday Stampers! I made an acetate overlay which I stamped the quote on and attached the butterfly which is made from fantasy film then sprinkled these gorgeous glitter stars along the edge with a little help from glossy accents. Thanks for looking in!

Anyway, on with this weeks' Tag, you're it! challenge. Many, many weeks ago Sam and I drafted up a huuuuuuge list of challenge ideas that we wanted to throw out to all of blogland and I have to confess that the current trend of 'house building' brought this week's challenge to the top of the list quicker than originally intended and we're 'striking while the iron's hot!' so to speak. This one wasn't actually due to make an appearance for a few more months but we were a little concerned that people might be 'housed out' by then, so we decided to jump on the bandwagon and offer it up now. So, if you're feeling in a housey mood, make a House Tag and pop a link onto the blog to share it with the rest of us.
The gold text stamp in the middle of my house is one of my own stamp creations. The flourish and script are Fancy Pants and the window, hearts and squares are woodware clear stamps from the wedding set. I think the brick chimney is a Paper Artsy stamp. Thanks for popping in - go check out the challenge!

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)

Welcome in our house!! This week, in our house there is a little girl!!You have to make your creation in a special size(format): it must have the shape of a house (small, big, fine, wide as you prefer).
I spied this challenge blog last week and I would have loved to join in but I have been soooo busy with everything else. However, I noticed that this week there has to be a little girl in the house and as luck would have it, I already made this a while back. I have been making this House Book for a few months now but it is as yet waaaaay too far from being finished so I'll show this page now as it's this week's theme. It's actually a lot more attractive than this IRL, it just won't seem to photograph well - there are lots of spritz of gold on here but the camera just doesn't want to pick it up! I have a great urge to carry on with my blank pages now!
Thanks for looking! :o) xx

Edit, before anyone gets the chance to see this - what a fool - I just realised that there was actually a theme for this challenge and I went nowhere near it!! LOL!!!! The theme is A is for Apple - I didn't actually read that bit till I posted on here!! ROFL!! Never mind, pretend this is an Apple Tree and the apples haven't yet formed!!! :o) Phew......!
So Salsa (Stamp or Scrap a Label Sunday Afternoon) - what a brilliant title for a challenge blog - so wish I'd thought of it first!!! ;o) Well, I don't need to be asked twice, but I do need to be asked on a Saturday if I'm to do it by Sunday, LOL!! But Christa very kindly left a link to her brand new challenge site on Tag, You're It! and I couldn't resist playing along!

there was great temptation to go and stick it on a bigger tag when I saw what Sam had done, but then I decided I actually like it just as it is, and guess what, it's got Gold lips which suits this weeks Make a Moo or Two challenge so I thought I'd link it to there too!
Then on my travels I spotted the Sunday Stamper challenge this week is Two Little Boys so I went off and made this:The stamp is my own two little boys which I made from a photo I took last year on the steps at Brixham Harbour. I made the tag first, then I made a seperate Moo. I completely soaked my card in Winter Jasmine Gold stuff (I am hopeless with labels, honestly - I mean that sparkly water-based painty stuff that you can daub or spritz) and I edged it with gold EP. Then I looked at the two and thought "Ding Ding.... and Idea!!" and so I mounted the Moo over the tag giving it dimension with some sticky pads and mounted the whole thing on some black/gold spritzed card, thus resulting in another Moo Tag
It's Bank Holiday weekend, so naturally the Monsoon Period has started!! Tut! Bang goes all my plans to get out in the garden. Hope you all have a fabulous BH Weekend, and Thanks for popping in (ps - have a go at a moo tag while you're at it!!! LOL!!)
