12 tags of 2014 June

I was actually working on another card, and doing plenty of faffing about (as I do it so well!!) and you know that rare moment....well, rare for me!!! when I was suddenly on a roll and the next thing I knew I was making this card for the Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014, June challenge. I am bowing down in admiration for the creative genius that is Sir Tim I am sure all the crafting world is too!!. This is my first time entering one of Tim's challenges, and I am sure I will enter some more. Here is my tag, using the dot fade stencil for this months technique, I had the idea to die cut the Umbrella Man and do the same technique that I used on the background. This is so much fun and very addictive. The ribbon on the top of the tag is the piece of kitchen paper that I used to blot up the excess ink, I left it to dry then cut it up into eh!!!

Here comes the Summer!!

Today is the new day for the next monthly Hambo Hoedown Challenge, and todays challenge is SUMMER, so interpret it as you want, maybe you will have to use a bit of imagination if you live here in England!!! as I write this, I can hear the pouring rain on my craftroom window!!...sigh!! is nice and dry here in my own little haven with my craft things all around me...and creeping ever nearer to me!!! Anyways, here is the card I made for this months Summer theme challenge.

I used real sandpaper for the sand (thanks Pete). Isn't this BIG CRAB the cutest thing with his cheezy grin. You can purchase him HERE at Hambo Stamps.
