Morning Wow where has summer gone??It is like winter here in Norfolk today.Very cold wind and well sky looks full of rain.Do hope it stays away as my eldest daughter is going upto the forest as the Script Concert takes place tonight not much fun in the rain !The cold wind will be bad enough.

Anyways i havent been out this morning ive been getting all creative.Now my mojo is back i aint letting it go...!!!!

So my first tag is for Simon Says Stamp And show.

Whihc this weeks theme is Stitching on your project can be Faux.Ive gone for Faux whihc is the lovely stamp set by Stampin Up Sew Lovely .I have samped th stitches in black archival ink down the side.Distressed the edges with old Paper round the edges.Iv e added pearls to the neck of the manique.The background paper is also SU.I have added prima flowers and pearl ended hat pins ,sprayed with tattered angels glimmer spray.
Added an aray of colourful fibers to the tag from my stash .

My second tag today is for the challenge over at Tuesday Taggers again not took part for sometime due to my missing mojo!

So this weeks challenge was Birds /Bees theme
I have distressed the SU paper with Brushed Corduory and the edges with pine needles distress ink.I have used Tim Holtz Bird cage die and distressed that also with Brushed corduory.

I have added the sentiment from Tim Holtz Set "Stuff to say" Stampers Annonymous.Which was stamped in black soot distress ink.

Added green pearls to the cage at the bottom .The bird is so cute and from Prima.

The metal rose is Tim Holtz Ideology set.

Two fabulous tags! I really love the one with the dressmaker form. How clever to paper piece it with a chintz pattern. Super job on the sewing challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show!
