Lavinia stamps challenge

 The Lavinia Stamps Challenge this month is to add some ribbon. You can  also access this via and see some of the great new stamps that have been released - I am just waiting for mine to arrive!!!!!

Oh and now we can except email entries for those of you who want to play but don't have your own blogs

Anyway, here are two examples. One an up cycled jar and the other a tag

This is a before and then after we ate the cherries in liqueur !

This is front and back of a tag - I thought it would make a nice book mark

Hope you are all well

Altered Altoids!

Hi all

For this month's Rhedd's Creative Spirit Challenge I have altered a sweet tin.  I have used some Tim Holtz paper and bits and bobs

I always think Altoids sounds like a medical problem and not a nice mint sweet! They come in these very useful tins, so I up cycled it to store my brushes in

Hope all is well
