Another award,a tag,and an envelope book

Firstly I would like to thank dear Tracey for giving me this award,bless you hun so chuffed you thought of me,tracey does some awesome craft which you can take a look at HERE
Right the rules,you have to pass this on ,to 5 blogging buddies,then you have to name 3 things about yourself.  I already,gave an award to 5 of my buddies last week,so this time I have choosen my next 5 could have been a hundred,such a shame its only 5 but,never mind. Then,when this is all done,
 you pop over here to digi's with attitude to claim a $5,gift
3.Zoe
These people along with all the rest of my followers,I give this award too for there love and support,and for being such amazing crafters,who always inspire me,thanks guys.

Right I have,made this tag following the technique for this week in the curiosity,compendium of challenges this week run by the lovely Linda,I have used one of my fav Tim holtz stamps,along with some words of his and one of his clocks.
Cant tell you how this was done as that is the rules of,the challenge,but if you would like to find out more just pop over to Linda's blog HERE to find out and see some wonderful talent on show too.

I am entering this into Linda's challenge
Plus,simonsaystampandshow Favorite Tim stamp
for fun metal,my chain

Next is a book I made using some envelopes,then used my Cinch to bind all the pages together making one envelope slightly larger for the covers,this is made for someone how has had a tough year and thought this may help cheer her up. There is also atc's inside,as this holds them together perfectly.
I have drawn a guitar,dress then used,stamps from the artistic stamper and stamped on top. Papers are 7 gypsies. Then few bits from my stash.





Challenges,
paperplaytime you rock
Theburtonesquedolls anything goes, Great,images,you should check this out
I also want to say thanks to the guys on,the I did it forum for choosing my atc,as the winner last week,thanks guys really need cheering up as feel so low at the moment. Not sure why just sometimes feel as though all my craft is for nothing,may sound daft but I pop around blog land,to see all the stunning and amazing cards,altered art,digital images,so many of you are always posting to say you have been asked to be on a DT team,and I think oh just wish someone would recognise me and say oh cheryl how about,designing for us. Sorry may be,me just being daft and missing Lisa like crazy so ignore this old,duffer goes with age he he.

oh Cheryl, this book is just so fabulous! You put so much wonderful detail into your projects,they are a joy to look at and 'study' so I don't miss anything!
Love your tag too hun, the chain and clock gives the illusion of a pocketwatch, just perfect for this image!
Congrats on your award and thank you for thinking of me! I've been such a bad blogger of late...I'm trying to stay away from the computer more, but then I miss everyone so much! Sending HUGS to you! I think ALL your artwork is incredible! And it might not 'show' on my blog yet, but you are inspiring me to be a little more 'artsy' and when I'm comfortable enough with my creations I will start posting them! lol
So, my friend, don't ever think what you are doing here in blogland is not appreciated, you might never know all the hearts you touch with your beautiful art, talent and friendship!
big HUGS!
Have a blessed day!

Cheryl, these are sensational! Once again you have been one very BUSY artist, and you just keep cranking out the magic every week! You did a brilliant job on the Perfect Distress-- could there be a better technique to use with our beloved umbrella man?? The bright red text and clock imagery makes a really cool backdrop for him, too!

Your gorgeous book is certain to brighten up your friend's day! It's sweet and fun and happy, not to mention wonderfully designed!

Congrats on your much deserved ATC win! I'm so sorry you've been feeling low, but please don't ever doubt your incredible talent as an artist! You create such beauty and brilliance, consistently and with such heart. Don't be disheartened about not being on a design team. Or, create one yourself! I think you'd make a wonderful hostess. :-)

P.S. I'm so sorry, Cheryl, I just deleted my previous comment because I goofed up your name! This seems to be happening to me a lot lately. I called my boss the wrong name yesterday, and boy, was that embarrassing!
