Okay now,for my win,you may have seen on my side bar the shabby tea room badge,he he oh so chuffed sorry but My shoe and those wee dresses in the post below were choosen as overall winners of the vintage distressed challenge,and not only did they pick mine to win but I also get to be a GD too,how cool is that. The lovely Debbie was even kind enough to write this about little old me,
Cheryl #167! Cheryl not only created the most adorable baby dress shabby cards, but she also created a paper set of vintage shoes -- oh my shabby goodness ... pure eye candy! I simply fell in love with all three of Cheryl's projects this week, but really and truly was amazed by the vintage paper shoes! Simply stunning work and detailing -- lovely embellies -- absolutely beautiful! Thank you, Cheryl, for sharing your wonderful talents with us all in the Tea Room this week!
You may think I am daft being so chuffed but being turned,down by several DT's just latley,really made me wonder if I am any good,so this has given me a huge boost so bless you guys over at the Shabby tea room.
Also today is the day that the lovely Julia,welcome people to her blog to check out everyone,s creative,desks,as its that time again for WOYWW.  I bought myself some more of the Tim Holtz,goodies,from 2 brilliant websites who offer great prices,they both have sales on at the moment and super quick service too. One is the craft,emporium,and the other is,craft obssesions, so here is my desk for this week Oh my new drawers to match the set I had on my desk last week,Lisa found these at a car boot,£4,oh so chuffed to have these as they fit my MS punches,perfectly. If you would like to see what all this is about then,just hop over to Julia;s blog HERE.

This is a tag I made for the challenge over at lotstodo butterflys or insects, Distress inks,dabbed,through die cut MS butterfly,made large one from grunge paper,then used hole punch to go through the wings,then added fibres,and charm,

and made another,tag which is my kind of steam punk,hope you like it, I have called it Ice Angels. Paperartsty stamps,TH paper and,tape,added,letter,then added distress paints over top.
Finaly one,more this is another book I have just finished,the covers,I bought from the craft imporium,and then distressed,them bit further,then I made my spine and this time attached some small envelopes to the inside of the book.

Just one more thing would like to thank Ileana for following my wee blog thanks,hun.
