If you feel like having a go why not pop over here.
Here we have the show case of the challenge set by Chris... Easel ATC's
Thanks Chris for setting a great challenge x
Love that stamp
Thank you x
Back to my table now shall I clear and tidy it or should I push it to one side and carry on..being creative seeing as my MOJO is around.
Thank you for those emaiing about the postage to have their swaps returned...
Chris pointed me in the direction of having the postage from international swappers put into my PAYPAL and it's so easy it's up and running.. email me for more info on it.
It's great to be back and I just want to thank everyone who has emailed me this last week to welcome me back. THANK YOU xxx

Now then you all know how much I love Crafty Individual Stamps from Jean and Malcolm.
Jean, if you don't already know has opened her very own blog :) you can find her over here... http://craftyindividualsblog.blogspot.com/ I am just so excited that she has decided to run a monthly challenge for us so why not pop over and give her a great BIG warm welcome to blogland.
I have completed my finger painting on text paper for this months Artist Trading Cards.... the 3 below are mine for the swap my other two are further down on another post.
A bit scoooowy wifffffy as I failed to scan them straight...lol. TRY TILTING YOUR HEAD TO THE RIGHT as you look at them it just may help.
As you can see I have used an old map from a book which I started altering about 6 months ago and NO I never got to finish it .... but hope to one day.
Now for the start of the Bird challenge set for us by our talented artist and friend Godelieve the 2 below are hers, you may remember them.
The colours and embossing are gorgeous you will agree.
Below are Debbies..
Thanks Debbie x
All the way from Alberta Canada we have Electa's oh I am just loving the colours
And hey that bird is wrapped up well as I know the winters in Canada can be rather cold, I was on holiday in Alberta about 11 years ago in July/august and one day the heavens opened and from out of the sky fell millions of golf balls.... I swear I thought they were as they were soooo big I had never seen hail stones like it before they were making dents in some cars.... AND I do remember strawberry's the size of apples and apples the size melons.... well nearly.
And a little bit of embossing too. Thank u x
Thank you x
Then comes mine...recognise the same stamp used on our designers ....a completely different look
Bird Head CI stamp.
I'm catching up and getting my head/act together...it wasnt easy but thanks to blogging friends I am getting there.

Sheila these are stunning and I would never have thought to have created such gorgeousness he is one good looking guy and the silver crosses are lovely.
And look, we didnt get through this challenge without Sir Tim once again not a good scan as the backgrounds are neat wheat.
Below are mine and right now I cannot think who the main stamp belongs to...well it belongs to me but not sure who manufactured it...Bought from Karen at Scrapz.co.uk
Thank you all....More to come in the way of birds, Easel and others
