A bit of coolness and 2 more pages :D

First a bit of fun :D Sent hubby out for some "light refreshment" in the week, and instead of wine he came back with beer!!!!
Oh! thinks me, but a change is as good as a rest, so enjoy :D
An hour later, hubby says " there is a reason I bought you beer instead of wine tonight".......oooow me thinks bad thoughts :D
"I thought you might want the bottle tops for your arty stash"
Now I'm impressed but a little confused.....til he held them out to me....

...a black crow and a bumble bee!!!! How cool are these??? And how cool is hubby that he even had those thoughts :D
So now to 2 more pages for Art and Sole's 52 Pages for 2011....
Page 34: TRIBAL
I'd love to think of myself as celtic, but can't find any ancestral links, in fact gone back 300years and haven't got outside a 70mile radius of wear I was born :S
Got some gorgeous Celtic knotwork stamps from The Stamp Man(Celtic Christmas collection, Virginia!!!) , and used the 5 point star as my starting point.
Chose 3 colours red/dark blue/gold and coloured and doodled....
was going to fill whole page as a tangle, but liked the "glowiness" the colours were making :D

The next is Page: 36 UNIQUE
I like to think I'm pretty unique...I like to feel different....I dress how I want.....and I WANTED this hat!!!!
It goes perfectly with my new woolly winter coat :D Amy! It has ears!!! And yes I am expecting a long cold winter :S The style of the page was inspired by Dawn of Journal Journeys, who's latest challenge is "New Look", so this is my new look for this winter :D

Enjoy :D XXX
