I use  Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Feather Craft Dies perfect for the adorable  Indian Tilda. I kept this card pretty Clean and Simple as I wanted to show the fabulous Ring Cluster stencil.
I think you will be seeing this fairly often. I apologise for the rubbish photograph - it's dark and raining and one of my 2 lights bulbs has 'gone' - that's my excuse!!!

I have another  another fun creation to show -  I enjoyed making this enormously!!!


When I first saw these Simon's feather I know exactly what I wanted to do - I used to have a Dream Catcher but it slowly disintegrated and I would love to make another - so here we go!!!
The circle is from a bangle - I haven't been able to find here anything at a better size.
I twisted the purple twinearound the bangle and the finer white twine to make the web.
I used a secetion of pearl and beads (from my stash)to adorn the the feathers which I had added with some natural ones.
This is one Dream Catcher which is showed in diferent colours - the pink looks wishy washy, the white at the end shows the more natural colours but the one in the middle (pale blue background) shows the better photograph.
I really enjoyed making this and I think I shall be making more if I manage to acquire a larger circle!!!

Everybody Art Challenge ............ A Sketch

We have time for another Everybody Art Challenge and this week we have a sketch.
I am so late today - we have been having storms the last couple of days - I've been losing my internet and was up half the night from the cluttering and banging. I had a tree in the garden covered with leaves - now it is stripped naked. It is still very windy but it has calmed down and my internet is OK and can start uploading my post and link it!!!  
I have used this little Tilda from the new Magnolia's collection and coloured here with Prisma's  on Neenah Kraft Desert Storm. The  Magnolia showflakes are stamped with the Colorbox  Frost White and I used Aleene's Glitter Snow for the snow.

I'm definitely at Less is More mood at the moments, especially with my mousies.
I'm not a lover of twine for twines sake although it can be useful. 
I'm happy about the the little Twine ball and skein knitting from Amanda - that is fine - it serves a purpose as for the tied around the image - that is rubbish - it looks stupid and would be better with a narrow ribbon.
Not much else I can say really I've linked the details below!!

lovely hAnglAr or sweet Magnolia

I used the the images, the window and sentiment all from Halloween hAnglAr stamps and all coloured with Copics.
The Kraft cardstock is Neenah's  Desert Storm, and Bazzill Rainbow (purple and black)
The wood of the window coloured with Copics and the outside is inked, then I used Judikins Embossable acetate for the glass -  a waste of time really - the window either catches the camera and didn't show through the inking !!!.
Bats are Memory Box Swooping Bats and the sentiment is hAnglAr on Simon Says Small Folded Banner die

Oooops - I forgot to most this card for Less is More   I lost the light in my craft room. I have a strip with six bulbs - one of the stupid ones - when one goes they all go!!! They are so powerful I only use 3 or 4 in - if I had them all in they look like a runway on a landing strip -if I had them all on I would end up with planes landing on my balcony!!! I had 3 more bulbs  - but they all blew so I then had to find where I good buy some more until I could start crafting again!!!
This week the Less is More challenge is 'trees' - this one turned out not what I had intended - I couldn't get this idea out of my head - time allowing I shall finish the one I started!!
