Long time no see! (well it feels like it anyway:) Welcome to my new followers, and welcome back to the rest of my followers and those of you just browsing; it's such a privilege to have you along for the ride. I have been 'doing' - WOYWWers will see the evidence tomorrow - but not completing. Well, that was until about an hour ago when the postie arrived with a much anticipated parcel from Crafty-Emblies.
By now most of you will have completed Tim Holtz' September tag challenge. I got so far and then got stuck. For those of us who own a Grand Calibur we cannot use the larger Sizzix dies that Tim has for many of his diecut elements (which is uber frustrating as they are such great shapes). Maybe Sizzix could think about creating thin dies? just a thought. Anyway, this meant I was 'sans' typewriter. What to do? Try emailing Crafty-Emblies and hey presto, they produce one for you!!! Hurrah and THANK YOU!!!
Isn't it great? I did a happy dance when the post arrived and promptly finished the tag.
The sentiment comes from one of my new TH clear mini stamps sets from Simon Says Stamp (I guess it should really have been a typed message, and I do have them, but this one worked so well in my mind).
Other minor 'triumphs' include the Christmas tree bulb (coated in Ranger Glue n Seal and coloured with a Promarker) and cogs/pen nib created from the Indigo Blu 'Take the Time' stamp set.
This will be entered into Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2012 challenge - September
and Linda Ledbetter's Compendium of Curiosities 2 challenge - Riveted Patchwork - which this time is sponsored by the fabulous Funkie Junkie Boutique (you know I'm a fan!!).
Thanks again for taking the time to visit. I will be catching up with a few days worth of blog posts (hmmm, a few hours required for that methinks!!) to see what is getting you excited/crafty.
Hugs as ever, Buttons x
