An Apple a Day!

Apple1a

The lovely Wendy sent me some grey chipboard shapes to play with. Included were these fabulous apple tags ... so I set to work with my inks, blending tools and perfect pearls ... oh and my Timmy mask and this is the result.

Tim, the man who can create magic with a paper Apple1 clip, has started his Halloween trick or treat candy already ... so being a bit of a stalker ... erm ... I mean ... follower ... I decided I would start Halloweeny craft today too :0)

I lurve grey chipboard so I have added a Maya Road frame and some grunge board shapes ... only a couple of Wendy Vecchi stamps and ... drum roll please ...

Rock Candy Stickles :0)

Oh yes ... I got them in the post this morning from my lovely mate Hels ... so I just had to use them immediately ... actually when I rang her to thank her ... she challenged me to use them :0)

It is a very grey day here in Cambridge ... but I have a weekend of crafting ahead ... so who needs the sun?

And check this out ... Totally cool and very exciting!

Thats lovely! When you refer to "Tim" - do you mean Tim Holtz? If so, I am a recent follower[stalker] and totally love [copy] his work! I've just ordered a new stamp, and plan on getting some more stuff [clearing out my bank account in one swoop] as soon as I get paid!

LOL! Did the donkey have a choice and was it really necessary??? LOL! Snorted my tea at that comment - love it, no wonder they picked you apart from being uber talented you are obviously completely bonkers :D

Have had to click away twice with this post once to charge over to THE blog and oggle the Halloween loveliness and then... well... the donkey incident!

Need I say I love your freaky apple? Nah you knew that ;)
