PIXIE TIME SHADOW BOX,WOYWW,AND AN AWARD,

Morning peeps well I am,going to post this early today,as went to the doctors,yesterday and have been given,some,serious stuff to help with the old toilet situation so after I take this not sure how I will feel afterwards.  I did manage to comment on everyone who left me comments,last week,plus a few more but will try harder today.
First I want to thank dear ILEANAFor this award,wow thank hun you are a star really chuffed you gave me this,please pop over,to say hello she does some awesome craft work will nominate,5 people later as got a lot to post today but thanks hunxxx
Right its time for the PIXIE COTTAGE again this week,and the theme this week is,something recycled,well I used some red card that I had to recycle from,another card,as I had no red card left at all,so that is my contribution. I have used the image of this beautiful Humming bird,by Artish just one of the new,images,from the shop which you can buy HERE.
I have kept  the card plain and simple. Lace,Embossing cuttlebug,and just one flower no coloring,at all.
There is also the usuall choice to use one of our great sketches,too.
Next,is one of Tim,Holtz boxes which I bought from the artistic stamper,great service guys,this is the first time I have attempted to do one of these taken me a while but loved it,as you can have it any way you choice,by just taking the pieces,out and moving them. Which also makes it easier to paint,and decorate too. So this is what I have done,


The last one is taken with the acetete on as this also comes with the box,so you can keep all your things nice and clean inside,you can buy these boxes and lots lots more at the ARTISTIC STAMPER,HERE.
Now for WOYWW,Run by the lovely Julia,who always comes up with a great post,hehe,so if you would like to pop over to take a read and say hello just click HERE,
PICTURES Of my crafty shelf,and the other side of my desk,and also a book I am altering ,thanks to Juniebears,for giving me the kick start I needed,The second picture is,how the book was before I started,Click any pictures to see bigger,






CHALLENGES,
Paperplaytime ticket or clock,my shadow box has clocks on
designdoolies,something tiny,all the things in my,box,as the box is the smallest one,they do.
forfunchallenges,use metal,that is on my shadow box
craftycretions,fantasty,fairy tales alice in wonderland
stampwithfun,all that can fly,my card
oldiebut a goodie,distressing used some inks on my box

Morning Hun, hope the medicine works its magic and by the end of the day you are more comfortable.

Firstly the card Thank you so much I adore it a fabulous example of your skill not just at putting images and embellishements and colours togather but also of your construction magic everything is a perfect fit an dcut just right. People will have hopefully seen how well you have cut out the gaps between the birds legs and the branch.

Box WOW be looking for these at the NEC but going on Sunday they might have sold out by then!

Sending positive thoughts for you for today. xx Zoe

artish said...

hello!! your pixie card may be on the simple side as you say, but sometimes less is more! the contrast of the black and white the splash of recycled red :) reminds me of a black tie affair. the swirls of the background paper are like his flight plan, and the lace- so dainty just like the hummer himself...Wonderful!!! thank you for sharing him with all of blogland!!
