Some of my fellow Eclectics are joining the DT but Elaine is also looking for new blood and is having a DT call until 31st May. If you think you have something to offer wh not enter via Miss Linky.

I'm in awe of people who do altered art, I just wouldn't know where to begin but would like to dabble now and again.

And Now For Something Completely Different

Well as my crafting mojo is completely AWOL, I decided to make the most of the sunshine and share some photos of Whitehaven Harbour that I've taken this morning. 

This one is my favourite of the main lighthouse on the Harbour wall looking back over the town. We have gorgeous views of Scotland and Isle Of Man from here on a clear day.

Being arty with an old anchor.

Even the pigeons were sunbathing in the hot sunshine lol.

The Candlestick Chimney, part of "Wellington Pit" which mined coal.

and a little video compilation for you:

For the lack of blogging and comments, I have had to take a small break partly due to expired anti virus, computer hackers and viruses and partly due to real life and a really shitty immune system getting in the way.

My mojo is completely missing in action but hoping with a couple days R & R normal service will be resumed soon, If any of you are still following me by then lol :).

Eclectic Ellapu - Purple Challenge

Good Morning everyone,

Time for another Purple Challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and this week our theme was chosen by the lovely Jacki and it is "Pink and Black and add a skull".

So I have made a pocket fold card and decorated this chipboard skull.

For the outside of the card I used a mixture of pink and black gingham paper by "Craft Creations" and the sentiment is by "LOTV". I coloured Tilda with promarkers and distressed her with black ink. I added some hessian which I coloured with promarkers and embellished with pearls and gems from my stash.

I covered the skull with scrap pieces of pink gingham paper and then covered it with crackle glaze. I edged the skull with black sequins for sparkle when it's hanging and threaded black ribbon through the hole to hang it up. The back of the skull was painted black.

A little bit out of my comfort zone with this challenge. Please check out the totally awesome inspiration from my fellow purplies and welcome our new team members here.

A Quick little share

Good Afternoon,

Just a quick little share for you. This was a custom request for a lady going through a divorce. I have used off cuts of card and papers and embellished with butterflies and pearls. Card measures 5.5" by 2.5" .
I think the sentiment on the inside is so apt for a divorce, it is a pink petticoat digi.
Thanks for looking :).
