CD album

This is the cover for my latest cd album.
The cds are treated with alcohol inks. The die is Tim Holtz birdcage.The bird and cage have been covered in 3d gloss and heavily sprinkled with various glitters with a small gem for the eye.

This is the lovely black cat who has decided he likes to be in our house. I think he now spends more time here than in his own home. He comes in and out through the catflap, and has worked out how to stick his claw in and unlock it, so short of boarding it over there is no way to keep him I have stopped trying.
He loves to lie on whatever i am doing, from crafting to reading. He is lightning fast and will suddenly attack my knitting needles or crochet hook and tries to grab the wool from the bag if you are daft enough to rummage in the bag, as my hands can testify to, lol.

I think all three ladies are unique in their talents and deserve to be seen much more than they are.

birdcage album 1.

Here is the front and back cover,and a couple of the pages from a small album I have been making. Someone recently said on a forum that she disliked Tim Holtz stuffas it was dull and boring. huh? I am a huge fan of his and don't think it is either dull or boring. The bird and cage are from his sizzix die. Covered in 3D gloss and heavily glittered while wet. The silver edges are an on the edge die by yep, Tim Holtz. The flower and stem (above) are also his.

Bear cards

I seem to be making a lot of bear cards recently, for very different people in a variety of age groups.
