Chip and Bling!

Beer 13a

Shall I tell you where I am? Shall I? Huh? Shall I?

I am at my first ever online crop with my CB teamies ... exciting huh? I have to admit to being a tiny bit terrified ... I am posting both my projects between 9pm and 10pm GMT ... which is 4 - 5pm on the message board. I have been pacing up and down for most of the day ... I have checked my internet access 60 zillion times and right at this precise moment ... I will be posting my first challenge thread!Beer 13

One of my challenges is called Chip and Bling ... hence the beer mat/coaster ... in Aged Mahogany, I might add ... so it will fit in nicely with my Distress inked collection ... I am adding cup hooks to my shelves and when I feel strong I put another one in ... they are a bit tricky to get the thread straight ... but it is too late now to ask John ... Can you imagine the fuss he will make when he see's I have n't measured them or used a spirit level? Nah ... I shall suffer in silence!

The stamps I have used on this mat are mainly Wendy Vecchi ... but the cute little cherries and the sentiment is from Nikki Sivil's "My Sweet Cherry Pie" set. Of course the philosophy tag and the grunge paper are from Tim ... the man that can make the earth move with one finger, some stickles and a vintage game piece ... Holtz.

I hope you are all having a pleasant day - see ya!

I missed this crafting event sadly. Have added CB to the list of blogs that I follow so I don't miss out again! You always craft such beautiful things - so no need to worry. You'll be fine and I'm sure everyone (except me) enjoyed your challenges.
