WOYWW #144 - A More Normal Week!!

Well, Wednesday rushes upon us once again... and March already!!! Special day that it is, it can be totally shared at the home of our spy mistress Julia at Stamping Ground. Pop and show your own desk and tell us what you are up to... it's such fun!!
 It's staying reasonably tidy then, and I can still see the wood for the trees but still not getting as much work/play done as I would like... anyway, mum is having a better period just now, and is much more settled. I am still fighting to get the best from the care plan - I have one really great carer, who comes twice a day, but the rest are mediocre at best... it's a pain when we pay so much!!

Talking of playing and getting into my lovely "craftyoom", I have more to do this month to be ready for a VERY SPECIAL EVENT next month... YEY!!! I have been asked to be a Guest of the Month on The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog!! How great I feel about THAT!!! So it will be scates on to do some good stuff

Woo, got the markers out and used the brush ends on the grunge paper suitcase handles... looking forward to getting the special paper needed to do the magic with them??!!
This week, Simon Says Stamp and Show - bottle it... so for my TIO Alice challenge, I decided to show her growing large because of drinking from the bottle marked "drink me"...I used some images from the MCS disc... it's a great fun CD...
The rabbit is running off with the Queen of Hearts playing card - I saved them from a crimble cracker!!! I knew they would come in handy one day...

The clock has grown wings - well how original, fancy her thinking of that!!! - I used butterfly wings and decoupaged the watch face to make it lift off the page...- well that's what the wings are for, eh??
The background was done with distress inks and stamped with clocks and cogs, diamond blocks and...

It is all topped off with a large Graphic45 brad, which holds a key - for Alice to open the door, of course, silly - and a bronze metal circle of cut out hearts...
There is a lot of dimension to my tag this time, and it is very busy - well the book is, isn't it??
So that's what is on my desk at close of play today... the suitcase is coming on, and the tag was fun and different to do. I don't have any Alice stamps, but would love to get into all that... fascinating. Off to bed shortly, as I am so tired, looking after Miranda and the boys, as well as mum... feeling a bit of a shadow this evening!!! - hey, who said that??? tee hee.

Have a great week and thanks for coming over and leaving your wonderful comments. Looking forward to seeing lots of you chez vous
Love and Light
