Altered? - You Bet!


Hi All

Thanks for your efforts last week on what appeared to be a difficult subject! It pleases us no end when you have a go, we love to encourage you to try new things and are thrilled when you grit your teeth and give it a go.

This week we have been asked by the lovely Lyn to Alter Something, so alter something we did, and I'm astounded by the ideas our DT have had.

I'll start with Lyn's project as the challenge was her choice, would you believe she's altered a Light Switch!!!!!!

This weeks challenge a St Patricks day Theme

This weeks theme is chosen by our brilliant team mate Teri - Here is her cute card too!

Fabulous Teri!
Here is our Guest designer who won our craft emporium prize a few weeks ago.

You may recognise Gail and her work from the Craft Stamper magazine.
Here is what Gail told us about herself-
"I've been craftin since forever - well at least since Blue Peter and Vision On and nothing much has changed. I love the challenge of making something from nothing - recycling bits and thinking outside "the box". Textiles was my first passion and this led on to papercrafts and mixed media. I have taught fashion and papercrafts and have been published in several magazines. At the moment I organise a monthly altered art group called Ephemera Ink and also contribute to Craft Stamper Magazine".
Wow Gail that sound fabulous! Click on Gails name to whizz to her blog to see how she made this amazing piece of art.
Now onto the rest of our team - seems so quiet without our Guest designers of the last 3 weeks!














Brilliant theme! My first ever St Patricks day project!


Now onto the serious business of choosing the prize for last weeks challenge from Crafty Individuals

I was blown away by how many of you used their stamps in your project - you obviously know how fabulous their stamps are .


So Mr Random Generator has picked

number 42 JanR

* Warning Mr Random Generator picked out 4 winners before Jan but they had NOT mentioned crafty individuals in their post so missed their chance of winning this fabulous prize.*


So Jan well done for following the challenge rules correctly - your card is gorgeous. Get in touch with Tuesday Taggers about your prize and also a Guest design spot if you wish.


So all thats left is for you to link your "St Patricks Day" project with Mr linky so we can visit your blog and see your work.

Happy Crafting!
