Busy Tuesday..

I follow , with total amazement and awe Maddy's blog....Mad Imaginations.....some of her creations on there are fantastic and make me lost for words which doesn't happen often,I can tell you......anyway after being inspired by Maddy, I decided to have a go.....I found an old shower gel box, took it apart, cut the top off, covered it and put the box back together.....I then added some bits and pieces and made myself a stamped images box.....to keep all my images together...then I covered some more things......
Thankyou Maddy for the inspiration...



I got this old tube from work, it had a poster in it.....a bit of fancy paper and some stickers and I have a paintbrush holder....


This used to be a coaster box but has now been turned into an atc box, just the right size to keep atcs in......I covered the box with paper, lid and bottom, added a ribbon to the lid, some flowers, a butterfly and a tag.....very handy...




Lastly, I covered a little pot with some sticky ribbon and put a sticky flower on the top, I filled it with some diecut flowers....very dinky..

I was on a bit of a roll yesterday, I made a batch of atcs ready to send out to friends, you never know when you are going to need one...so I decided to make some for the occasion..

The first two are Jemima Puddleduck and I think its a red admiral butterfly but I could be wrong...

These are a couple of images that were sent to me, just begging to be used...


A couple of Tildas, I can't get enough of these stamps, they are brilliant...so easy to use...







Finally, I also made some toppers for cards or scrapbooking, whichever takes my fancy.....I took a coloured stamped image, wrapped thread around it , placed on another piece of card and added a button..
