Watch this space ...

... for the new Salt team that will be announced very soon - we have lots of new members joining us.

And a surprise challenge is on its way ...

Nothing to show but ...

... ten notebooks in process - watch this space tomorrow.

I've prepared ten covers and papers for notebooks - punched the holes with the BIA, just need to put the wires in and don't trust myself to do that tonight without making mistakes. I've decorated some of the fronts for the notebooks, so I feel I've made reasonable progress with them.

Fruit moo

Following on from the previous post where I showed a card using a photo of apples, I couldn't resist making a moo for this week's Make a moo or two: 'fruit and vegetables' - I hope I'll be forgiven for concentrating on fruit and not veg.

It's difficult to get a decent quality of photo of something so small - it really is 1.1" x 2.8" - and that's quite small!

I might try later to incorporate it into a card.
For now, I need to have a break because my back is so painful and my head feels too heavy.

Picture this

The challenge for day 10 on 365 cards is 'picture this': ' Use a family photo, a photo of your pet, or a scenic photo - any one you choose, and include a sentiment to match.'

My choice of photo may seem a strange one, but quite some time ago I took some photos of apples in response to a prompt on HS:MS:HS - I used to regularly take part in this, but haven't for a while now - must try and get back to it soon.

Anyway, back to today's card. I used the photo of apples, mounted on to silver mirri card and then mounted that on to a light apply green card on which I randomly stamped and silver embossed. The quote was printed on my dymo letratag with clear tape (you can read the quote if you click on the picture to make it larger).

BF Dragon CJ

Having joined the new CJ group on BF last month, the next one needs to be posted on Saturday 14 March, which, of course, is when I'm having my Tearfund sale. I needed to get this done, so I set aside some time this morning - then I can concentrate on things for Saturday.

Leigh has made a superb CJ about Dragons, but I confess that when I first saw it I wasn't sure what on earth I was going to do for this.

Thanks to DCWV, this has come together OK - I hope Leigh will like it.

The papers are Far East, the epoxy stickers are Once upon a time, plus clipart picture and info from the internet:

Vintage hat

Last night I started making some notebooks - I got as far as covered the fronts of some, including this one which fits challenge 51 on My Time to Craft 'hats' and also the current challenge on Kaboodle Doodle of 'vintage'.

The background paper is DCWV and the image is a glittered rub on (can't see the glitter on here, but it adds a subtle sheen of pink and green to the hat and bow. I added a couple of gems on the hat and bow, as well as in the flower centres:

Although the notebook hasn't yet been finished I thought I'd show it now before the next challenge goes up on My Time to Craft.
