Use your IMAGE-ination...

This week at Crafting When We Can
the challenge is to
sponsored by

 made using "In the Meadow"

I saw the photo inspiration Challenge # 137 over at
and decided to create my own background again using
 assorted stamps and blue inks on marbled grey paper
 I am loving these "layering" stamps...
 Base card midnight blue with a silver mirri mat.
 Complimentary colours for the image using promarkers,
stamped sentiment, silver organza ribbon and sequin thread
to decorate. 
 And obviously....stickles to add a little sparkle :D

and that's where you will find me....
in the meadow*garden* smelling the roses .
A world full of Wonder and Mystery :D

A Good Heart.

Today is the start of 

courtesy of Emma and Magaly
a small celebration to honour  "... all the so called monsters
and aberrations who are often kinder than the humans in the 
stories they bring to life"

"Rosa" the doll that got left behind

The Wolf's Heart

When the Moon is full and overhead
Smart children hide beneath their bed.
The hearts of Mothers fill with dread,
lest the morning shines on newly dead.

For while the Menfolk drink their ale
the Moon, like Death, gleams cold and pale.
A lonely child eats bread that's stale,
And the Werewolves wander in the Dale.

Sometimes *though it is very sad*
They come upon a lass or lad,
Who's circumstances seem so bad
that even for the company of Wolves they are glad.

Whatever happened that cold night
They left no sign of terrified flight.
A flurry of snow, the only sight
that hinted at the poor child's plight.

Now the She-wolf sits to stitch and sew,
And watches as the children grow.
Her "Mother's Heart" is all aglow
...She would never leave a child to die in the snow.
...

So Rosa needs a new home. 
She has been stuck here with me ...
waiting ...
for over a year, and this seemed like the perfect
 opportunity to put her up for adoption.

If you can find a place in your heart(and home) for little Rosa
just leave a comment  and I will randomly select a winner on the 26th :D

Not so shabby..

Today's challenge from CWWC Challenge 
There was a bit of a hiccup with the sponsor for this challenge
so I decided to revisit one of my fav images from previous challenges.
I chose to re-use  "No My Dolly"

This style of creation gave me another opportunity to
create my own background card :D
Distress inks and overstamping...
and a bit of water spritzing...
makes for a wonderfully shabby finish.
*close up*

I matted this straight onto a white base card.
Next I "scruffed up" some scraps of paper with matching ink
to use for layering...
before colouring my image.
Added ephemera from an old
Hot off the Press paper pad.
*Ribbon and pearls are a must to add chic to my shabby*

Enjoy :D XXX
