A little Bit of Crafting

Today Belle went to work with her father for a bit so after the housework was taken care of I got to sit up in my craft room for a little while and sit I did ....sit and stare at my desk. I seem to be having a hard time coming up with anything creative. Maybe it was too many cookies or too much baileys over the holiday???I do not know. So off I went on the web to check out some of my favourite stops....maybe they can help? Anyway Over at UK Stampers Forum I found an ATC swap and weekly challenge so I decided to take a go and here is what I turned out......

My tag is created for the Week 39 challenge where there was a list of ingredients to use:

Stamped text background

Found object

Image of an angel
My found object is the paper ribbon on the bottom of the tag. It is from Anna Griffin. I just happend to find a spool of it in my box of gems so I guess that makes it a found object. the text backgroun is an unknown clear stamp I picked up a while back at the Harrogate show. I also used Stormy Sky and Dusty Concord Distress ink over the text stamp. The Angel is from a Stampin Up set and coloured with Promarkers and distress inks. Her wings are embossed with Moonglow Angela Wings Turquoise as are the snowflake stamps from Tim Holtz down the side.

My next little creative project are 3 misc ATC's. I decided to play with my US Artquest Napkin collage kit I bought from the Stamp Man a while back. I really love my kit and had alot of fun making these. the napkin images are really nice. I am still working on my ATC swap for the UK Stampers forum 3 of a kind swap.

Well I am still not feeling it though so maybe tomorrow will bring a more creative outlook. Maybe if the sun came out it would help a bit. It seems to be cloudy and foggy every day lately.
thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day. Angela

I'm sure your 3 of a kind will come to you soon, don't forget it can be as simple as 3 brads as long as they are all of the same colour, size etc xxx
