Xmas card,Grunge,suitcase,and a presant

Hi guys,well first let me get this off my chest oh WAGNER,why is he still in the X Factor,did you know that they have some kind of thing going on face,book to keep him in untill the final rrrrrrrrrr
How daft can some people be,okay yes it was a laugh maybe to start with but come on we cant get rid off all that talent,to keep him in. Can he sing NO,Does he look good,NO,can he win the X Facotor and sell millions,of records,NO,
Right okay got that off my chest,maybe he and Anne whiticombe should make a duet together,she can dance and he can,sing or try too,he he

My title says,preasant well I was totally overwhelmed when I recieved the most beautiful altered book from my dear friend,June over at Juniebearsjottings I sent June,a few bits,to cheer her up,as her husband Freddy has been unwell bless her,and to my surprise seh sent me,the most beautiful book you are ever likely too see,this really has inspired me to make one myself after seeing,this in person.
So hunny bless your heart for sending me this I will treasure this always,
Please pop over HERE  to see the most wonderful art,and collage work from a very talented,and lovely lady,thanks again hun hugs cheryl xx

Finally do not fall off your seats,I have made a xmas card,he he saw this challenge over at craftyourdays away with the theme white,so thought I would give it a go so here it is no designer paper and I have used the free stamp that came with craft stamper last month.
Next my suitcase's I decided to have a go at making one with Grunge paper,so this is what I did I used distress inks,then used some stamps to go over,the paper before I stuck it all together,hope you like it.The othere bits,and pieces are from an old neckalce,I had plus some bits and pieces,which I bought from the fruit pixie along with 7 gypsies rub ons, I have inked,and stamped the inside too. This is kinder,grungy,shabby vintage style he he if you get my drift.

coldwaters2 said...

Wowwwwwww Cheryl I do love what I am seeing here stunning work, I still haven't used my grunge paper yet but aim to make some of your flowers with it, can it be left the colour it is or do you have to use colour? I also agree about Wagner, how can true talent be knocked out each week and he stay in, it is a joke.
