TIO #5 - Walk Like an Egyptian

Well, last week was a great challenge and some of you came up with the most wonderful creations... We had 26 entries altogether... Thanks so much for playing with my dreams!!

Last week's sampler showing below.

Another week and another challenge. This time I would like you to do something with an Egyptian flavour, hence Walk Like an Egyptian. At least one stamp please, and that's about it.... not too many restrictions this time as you all played so nicely last week!! It could just be the colours you associate with ancient Egypt. So over to you, any tag any shape, any colour so long as it is walking like an Egyptian!! ENJOY!!

The person who came out of the draw is...... da da.......

Wanda!!!!!! Yey... she is on the Creating Rainbows forum and does not blog... Well done you... I will send the goodies to you shortly, honey.

Any tag shape, any subject, so long as it is oriental, and it must be blue, with at least one stamp. Enjoy....

Welcome Ali - TIO #3 Rhubarb Crumble and Custard!!

Thanks to everyone who took part last week. Some wonderful tags were to be found on your blogs. Our first Guest Hostess, here at the TIO challenge is Ali Mayes. She has made us a fantastic tag on her chosen theme. The picture below is a close-up she wanted to share with us.

So what theme has she set us? Very intriguing, it's title is Rhubarb Crumble and Custard... Let her introduce it herself:-

My challenge for you is Rhubarb Crumble and Custard! I can see my enormous rhubarb plant as I look out of my craft room and it is what inspired the challenge. Your task is to use pink (for the rhubarb) yellow (for the custard) and texture (for the crumble) You must use at least one stamp and 2 embellishments.

About me... My name is Ali and I live in the country with two demanding cats. I am fast turning into an eccentric old lady, only kept sane (I hope) by my crafting. I enjoy all sorts of paper crafting but, being terribly untidy, I must admit that ATCs, moos and inchies hold great appeal, as they take up such a small space on my craft table. I can also plead guilty to buying crafty things that seem to disappear within minutes, only to appear again when I've either bought a replacement or completely forgotten about them!! Enjoy the challenge and have fun!!

Thanks Ali... shall have to get my thinking cap on, but it is a very interesting theme!! ENJOY!!

LAST WEEK'S SAMPLER BELOW.
