Hi this week I am thrilled to be your hostess for the Gothic Arch challenge.
I have chosen the theme 'Silhouettes' as I have had this stunning dancing couple in my Stash for 2 years ....shame on me....lol.
So today I give them to you and can you believe I have used my favourite Cosmo Cricket paper on the background...I was saving it for something special...I guess the time has come today.
Other images Crafty Individuals
I had sooo much fun creating my arch and hope that you will too.
Why not pop over to HERE as I have just been introduced to a brand new shop which only opened this week... June from Cens Loft is selling 2 A4 sheets of new silhouettes to download, each page has 6 different images 12 in all for JUST £1 50p and because they are downloads you can use them over and over again... now that's great value.
Here is a sample of one of Junes Silhouettes, our talented Papergirl Chris has used this gorgeous image on her mums birthday card...isn't it scrummy.
Don't miss out on seeing close ups of this fabulous card HERE
Chris also has FREE STUFF on her blog, now don't you just love those 2 words...I know I do. Pop over and see on the right side of her page is a big sign saying FREE STUFF......see below her arches she has up for grabs using her own paper designs if you would prefer your own style of arch you can download Free A4 patterned sheets for your own use. Happy times with your Silhouettes, I am soooo looking forward to coming over to your blogs to see what you have created.
Edited, Here is one of the fabulous Silhouette sheets at Cens Crafty Bits
Thanks for looking and do hope you can join in with us :))

Over at the ARTYGIRLS this week our challenge is to choose a blog we like and without copying exactly deliver a piece of art we have been inspired by.
The person I have chosen to be tonight Matthew is... oops, sorry, wrong programme..lol
I searched for a romantic flowing dress which i picked up for a song from Dolce Gabbana, and went from there and as you all know I love painted circles on some of my work so this was right up my street.

For the challenge on Linda & Rosies BAA where the challenge was to create a thick wooden ATC... well I had no wood apart from some mounted wooden stamps and so.... into the microwave for a couple of seconds (please don't try this at home..LOL) to loosen the glue and off came the rubber image. just like that.
My ATC block I have decided is a wooden postcard.
Thanks for looking and thanks for the challenge ladies.
Have a lovely weekend.

Your chance to win these great stamps by entering our Altered CD challenge ..see below
'Oh Baby, Them there eyes' is Chris' fabulous example of altering a CD, she used Cosmo Cricket papers and chipboard making it into a scrapbooking page which she intends to turn into a book..good idea and wait 'till DGS see's his photo. She even managed to use one of the postal stamps to the leaves on the 3d tree.
This altered CD above was my first attempt but does not abide by the rules however I am showing you it anyway... lol. but it doesn't count as the challenge...lol
The stamps I used are some of the postal ones you are able to win by entering your own Altered CD in the challenge, they are from Tanda Stamps and the lovely images are from Crafty Individuals the hats from Lisa's altered art.
Because we are almost a day late posting our examples due to our mistake we will give you until midnight Tuesday our time to email them to us at the address above.
We already have some great altered CD's in so if you would like to spread the word a bit more then please do.
PLEASE DO NOT put your entries onto your blog before we have a winner which will be chosen by YOU using a poll... we will post the entries on Wednesday 12th Nov.
Hope you are still with us but before we sign off I must show you a photo of a man Chris found for me...she thinks it's time I had one lol
P.S. she found him at Photofunia
See the altered box file below using the Tanda Stamps which are up for grabs on this post.
Love Chris and Chriss xx

Here at last is my 3D house for The Awfully Big Art Adventure challenge for Linda and Rosie, sorry it's late but I had to wait for my DGD to take the photos for me..I have about 24 of them as some of you know she is putting together her port folio for next Sept.
I have also been told by a few readers that I should enter it for this weeks challenge over at 'The Daring Card Makers' click on HERE and see some other gorgeous Halloween goodies.... great Ideas ready for next year.
The house started it's days as a box of washing machine tablets and possibly one of the best boxes I have recycled as it is so strong.... only problem if you like to cover it in patterened paper and as most sheets are 12x12 they wouldn't be big enough to do it in one piece, luckily this one needed to be plain black and so I cut out the pattern from an A3 white paper and then painted it.
All images are that of Digi scrapping Queen Kate Hadfield except the small bat and the spiders which were part of a Halloween RAK from Jaqi. The lettering I cut.
The 3D Haunted House was recycled into a 'Halloween trick or treat box' for my youngest DGS.
Credits to my photographer 16yr old Jordie... love u xx
PS see Monday 27th Oct post for the monthly challenge on this blog for an Altered CD
