TIO #36 My Blogaversary Offering - Distress It!!

Well, it is my first year blogaversary on this TIO blog and I am so pleased, thrilled and honoured to be still running, even having had a lay off due to my operations and crafting problems!!! Above this post, I will add some blog candy which will be available for the month of May, to celebrate with you. It will go to one lucky person who enters a challenge from today until the end of May, and who posts the picture on their blog, to advertise the candy and this blog, so please come back and look out for it. Off to my pre op for my knee now, YEY!!!!!


So, this anniversary week, please dream a tag of your choosing, but distress it  in any way you want... I have used crackle paint on my grunge paper, and distressed with inks at the edges. Over to you, and please use at least one real stamp, even if you go digital otherwise...
ENJOY...
Frankie

TIO #35 - Emboss It


Thanks to Elizabeth for last week's challenge. I shall ask her to challenge us again very soon!! Sorry to be late posting today, but the garden was calling to be watered!!

This week, it is back to me again and I would like you to dream your piece in the theme of emboss it. So, you can use an embossing machine, heat emboss, with a light box etc. I have used heat embossing and my cuttlebug. The distress inks look different over the bars of music, so it was interesting to do.

Enjoy, but please remember to use at least one stamp...

TIO #34 - Guest Designer Challenge - Under the Moon's Shaddow

Another week then, and thanks all of you who joined my first challenge back crafting!!!
This time I have a treat for you, as "ElizabethR" has created the challenge and the tag. She is one of my Rainbow Friends from a long time, and here is what she has to say:

My name is Elizabeth, I am forty three and live in the seaside town of Colwyn Bay. My love of crafting goes back a long way, to a brilliant teacher at school, who enjoyed making anything and everything, and my beautiful Mum who was a printer, and also very creative. So from a very young age I've always had a stash of paper, pencils, ink and type face catalogues to play with!

I feel very honoured that the lovely Frankie asked me to be a guest designer this week, and I hope you all like my theme of "Under the moon’s shadow" I've even included a couple of horses for Fred! All I ask is that you have a moon on your tag, and as Frankie would say, use at least one stamp please. Have fun.
Love Elizabeth x

So there you are - she said it all ... Please be sure to visit her blog at The Crafty Robin.
ENJOY your dreaming!!
Frankie

TIO #33 - In the City

For this first home made challenge, recently, I have chosen  the theme of In the City. I am dreaming of doors and windows, houses and streets and secret corners... We have had lots of pretty flowers and bunnies, so I hope you can make a tag about a more built environment!! But please use at least one real stamp, and ENJOY!!!
