A Pixie "pick me up"
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.

In Memory of Nigel

AJ wk 32 & TMTA - Numbers
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.

DCM - Recipe
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.
Happy Dance x2!

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.

Inter Team Scraplift
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.

DCM - It's About Time
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.
