After a very productive weekend of 3 layouts, (one I will share at the weekend which is a scraplift challenge) I have no mojo. I'm feeling kinda crap & nothing much is working for me on the craft table.
I have been around the various sites & I don't like any of the card sketches so for now cards are off my crafting menu!!
I have a few not shown so they will get an airing until I can be bothered to make anymore. I'd much rather lay & read or watch telly right now.

This is one of my favourite photos & the very last I have of him.
I have been tagged by my fab cyberfriend Michelle & will get to it later on in the week.

The prompt this week for the Art Journal challenge was Quiet.
Well for me quiet is time spent on my fabby sofa reading or looking through magazines for inspiration. I printed the pic onto transparency to keep it light but had a terrible job getting the light right.
The TMTA challenge was incorporate at least one number on your ATC. I used dated paper & a sale ticket.

Wasn't sure I'd fit this in before the next dare on Friday as I am behind with a few things & I have visitors coming at the weekend!! Trying to keep tidy & rest isn't the easiest of combinations! Then someone asked for a quick & simple card for someone who has got a place on a course. Apparently, the lady has put it off every year & this year took the plunge. Rather than good luck, I thought dreams were more in order. Gave me another chance to play with my circle punches that I adore.
This one is a recipe; 3 circles, 3 arrows & 1 square.

Think Monday Think ATC, new challenge is use tag(s) on your ATC.
Paper is Old World, DCWV. Clock & the word Discover stamped with Staz On timber brown, as I love the colour, its not harsh like black would be on this gorgeous blue shade of paper! Two tags & picture from HOTP, Artsy Collage Pretty book. Mini brad & ribbon, Papermania. The largest tag is raised on foam pads but the photo doesn't show very clearly. I'm not totally happy with this & may try another one later in the week.

Papers are EK success Lauren Collection, psychedelic plaid by Stacy Claire boyd. Fab papers & double sided. All flowers are hand stamped & cut out using various free foam stamps & a few papermania ones too. Clocks stamped using the set from the link on the card below. Brads from stash. Photo is my mum, her siblings & a family friend. Mum is holding her baby brother's hand.
Right must get back to cleaning & stash tidying. I am painting storage as well & forgot to upload so my teamies could link!!! I'm very impressed with this page, Im not normally very bold with colour. I felt this vintage pic taken about 1956/57 needed that modern twist.

I used this vintage image for my very first TMTA ATC last week, & felt she deserved a card all of her own too! I love these soft blue shades.
Paper is La Boutique, K&Co. Hydrangea from Scrapfairies. Karen Foster jewel brad, clip from stationery shop. I was fortunate to get a container of 100 in 50 brights & 50 pastels, for £1. The brights are metallic & suitable for Xmas designs.
I haven't done much scrapping, but then I realised that I am up to date on the challenges I am taking part in. I have had to drop out of a few with feeling tired due to my cysts.
Making cards isn't quite the same process as layouts. No as much thought to matching up is required!! I will be back later today, or early tomorrow with my DCM entry.
