We won the quiz last week..after a tie-break
Thanks to my neighbour Louise who passed on a yummy recipe for blueberry and soured cream loaf....first tried on the night of the Olympics opening ceremony and re-created by me last week....heaven!
Now on to the crafty stuff....
These two LOs were done for a challenge on Flying Unicorn..the challenge being that we had to use a line from a Creedence Clearwater Revival song....that certainly took me back!!
Papers are Bella "Vintage Chic", ribbon from John Lewis, chipboard owl by Twiddlybitz, tree and small owl are buttons from my stash.
The little watch was in a bag of goodies sent to me by Virginia....thank you so much!

Pictures of the tubs in our back garden....sadly the Busy Lizzies have been attacked and eaten...by slugs I think!
I used texture paste and a TH mask for the "railings".

This one was for a Nursery Rhyme challenge.
I chose "Mary, Mary quite contrary..."....I'd forgotten just how gruesome the origins of this rhyme were.
The "silver bells" and "cockle shells" were instruments of torture and the "maids" were maidens....an early form of guillotine...:(
And finally...a birthday card:
I think I'm up to date now!
I'm currently working on a secret project....it's for another challenge..a collage this time ....
No quiz this week as DH will be in Manchester and I'm going to take advantage of being home alone .....a crafty evening with no interruptions!!
