One World One Heart Giveaway - Magic Carpet Ride 2010

I'm taking part in the One World One Heart Magic Carpet Ride giveaway for the first time this year and am looking forward to hopefully meeting lots of new artists and bloggers through this venture and to have them visit me! What's OWOH? Well, you can read all about it HERE.

So here's what you can win from me - a selection of my collage sheets/background papers, some of my ATC's (for those who don't know what an ATC is, it is an Artist Trading Card and they are miniature works of art on a card which are swapped between artists), some ephemera (the exact pieces to be selected in the next few weeks) and maybe one or two extra things. So this photo is just a taster!

To stand a chance of winning, just do two things...

1. Leave a comment on THIS post before February 14th;

2. Include your blog link or blog info with your comment so I can visit you too!
On February 15th the One World One Heart event ends and I will pick a winner. It's that easy! YOU MUST LEAVE A VALID BLOG LINK AS THIS GIVEAWAY IS FOR BLOGGERS ONLY!

I hope you'll leave a comment for me, and that you'll stop by again soon. I'd love to hear from you any time!

January Design Team Artwork

Here is my artwork for January, made from several of Cassandra's beautiful collage sheets at Cassis's Creations. Pay a visit to her shop and see these lovely designs and lots more.

I have used scraps from several sheets and images from different sheets, finished with a few embellishments and a touch of sparkle. If you want to know which sheets a particular element came from, leave me a message and I will look them up for you.

Collage Obsession Challenge No. 1

Itkupilli and her friend Elegia have set a new digital collage challenge on the Collage Obsession blog.

The challenge is to apply the phrase "Worn Out" to this lovely picture of Sarah Bernhardt. Here is my entry.

Pincushion Cuff

I was inspired to have a go at making this pincushion cuff after reading about Cassandra's beautiful cuffs on her blog.
This one is just for me and I went a bit mad with the embellishments but I like it and I think it looks too pretty to use so I can either use it or look at it!!
I have never made one before and don't think it looks too amateurish.

This is apparently the coldest snap we have had for 28 years. We had some snow just before Christmas and now we have some more which arrived yesterday afternoon. We had further falls during the night and it is still trying to snow at the moment.

It is so quiet in the village - hardly any vehicles going past today - it is eerily silent. I am quite poorly in bed at the moment with the dreaded lurgy but Mr V-B donned his wellies this morning and took these pictures.

All I can say is that I am glad I am warm indoors!

Blog Makeover

This is a new blog background I am trying. It's not perfect but I'm still trying to get my head around all the complexities. I have used a few lovely elements and header courtesy of Paisley Cat Scraps and Lara Payton. Thank you guys!
