Gettin Messy Hands!

Firstly I must tell you how fantastic the whole team at Tuesday Taggers think you are! We have noticed a huge leap in what you are willing to have a go with since the new year and it really is brilliant to see so many crafters having so much fun with their stash. Give yourselves a huge round of APPLAUSE!

This week we would like to see you get messy! Quite apt since the King of messy projects is in the UK along with his fabulous team mates, I am of course refering to Mr Tim Holtz, Claudine Helmuth and Suze Weinberg. Michelle and I went to see Suze demo at a shop in Lancashire last week and wow it was Fantastic! She told us she was doing some classes at The Craft Barn later in the year so keep an eye on their website for that opportunity - You will really have an amazing time if you manage to go!

Talking of The Craft Barn - they are also sponsoring us this week. A £15 voucher is up for grabs for one lucky randomly picked winner who enters this weeks challenge and puts a link to The Craft Barn in their post - please do remember the link or you will not qualify to win.

First of our sample comes from a previous challenge winner Lynette - here's what she told us about herself.

"My name is Lynette Coulter and I live in Goodview, Virginia which is in the Blue Ridge Mountains with my husband of 37 years, Mark and our Shih tzh, Wicket. I am an Independant stampin up demonstrator. I love NASCAR, doing counted cross stitch and reading"

Here is Lynettes messy project.

Fabulous Lynette - thanks for joining in with us this week!

Of course we have more Guest designers this week too as well as our regular design team. Most have also photographed their hands or workspace to show how messy they got making the project too! So here they are-









Isnt that a fabulous array of different projects! Great stuff team thanks so much!

Now onto last weeks winner - The random Generator has worked its magic again this week and picked out number 33 which is Caro.

Love is all around

My turn to choose the theme this week and as its
My wedding anniversary on the 14th Feb (24 years!) how could I not choose a love theme!

Here's my entry which is love of a different kind - Love for friends.

Its an atc for a friendship swap over on the docrafts forum atc section. Ive been swapping there for 3 years now! you can find out how I made it by hopping to my blog here

We have a fab prize on offer this week from Lyn at The Craft Emporium - A surprise 6x6 paper pack from the CHA show in America. Please include a link to The craft Emporium in your entry post to qualify for this weeks lucky winner. you could also hop on over to the Craft Emporium to check out their fabulous sale - I got some brilliant stamps there last week which arrived by the weekend - Brilliant service!

First I'd like to show you Joan's work, our fabulous guest designer of the week.

Here's a little bit she wrote for us about herself
I have always done some kind of crafts, think I started by making dolls clothes for m
y younger sister ! I used to sew a lot but not any more. I have dabbled in all kinds of
painting, my favourite being water colours. I first saw rubber stamping at a little
craft show about twenty years ago and fell in love with it then ( embossing over the toaster or hotplate !) Took lots of class
es ,first at Centograph and then at Art from the Heart, had a serious illness about 3 years ago and gave up the classes
apart from the odd one now and again at Samuel Taylor’s in Leeds, can’t ever have enough stamps or time to craft !

We know that feeling well Joan!.

Go leave her a comment on her blog. She's done such a great job with this and there's plenty more to see there.

Anyway on to our fabby teams work


Wonderful work Teamies!
