Walking to Work




Hi, am back again, done the food shopping, now all I have to do is scrape the carrots, but we have chocolate mousse tonight to celebrate me being featured (see earlier post), well it doesn't happen every day does it?

Gingersnaps theme this week is Going to Work, which is a real fun challenge and there are some amazing samples from the DT to look at. You really have to join in this great fun challenge, am looking forward to seeing your terrific pieces.

My DT piece is made from recycled corrugated card, a map from our holiday in Jersey last year (a freebie) . Some plastic bits from an old alarm clock, black paint dabber, crackle glaze, Tim Holtz die cut bird, drew and painted the gorgeous legs myself........lol plus the boots and hat. This bird has to walk to work..........aaaaaah. The stamp Adventure is by Technique Tuesday. Hope it amuses you.

Will be back later after have done the carrots and got the meal on to check out all your beautiful creations. Ooh nearly forgot Benidorm is on TV tonight at 9pm so won't be around then, but will be back afterwards. Take care, Annette x
