Saturated Canary - CAS

Hello again peeps!!
2 creations in one day??!! 
This one is for the challenge over on the Saturated Canary challenge blog which is CAS.(....gulp!! CAS is not my strong point...I have a layers addiction..!!)

I coloured up my beautiful Crafty Ragamuffin to match the paper and added a little blue in there for contrast.
The paper is from Funky Hand's Funky little christmas, it is paper number 8 and its fab!! its kraft and funk all in one for me and I love the stitched running down through it.

A bit of distressing to the edges with some Frayed Burlap and a little LOTV stamped sentiment and it was done!! 

Well, I had better get off really, I have one tired little man to get to bed and then I am going to finish off watching 'New Moon' ( i put it on during my funk this afternoon, I cannot tell you how much a sparkly Edward and half naked Jacob helps your mood lift...:)  

Thank you for popping in on me again today!!!!

Wicked Wednesday ATC -60's!

Morning peeps!!
Its a quiet one here. Mo is at school so I have just been pootling about getting my laundry in the washing machine and thinking about what I fancy doing for the rest of my day!

To help me get going I decided to get my ATC done for the challenge over on Wicked Wednesdays. Its a super fun 60's theme this week! yeah baby yeah!!! and I decided to make a calendar for my purse with my entry.
I covered my ATC ( ...simple plain scraps of cardstock cut at 2.5 x 3.5 " ) with a scrap left from my BG two scoops 6x6 pad and coloured up my digi from Tiddly Inks. She is such a cute hippy looking chick with her hair flower and groovy top! I popped her on and then printed out my calendar. It was a gorgeous freebie from Very Merry Vintage.
I just cut each month out and the sewed some thread through so that once it was stuck down, each month can be ripped off easily as it ends. I just had to doodle a little peace sign on there too!!

I love these little ATC's. They are a perfect way to ease yourself into the crafting day and use up some scraps of paper.I quite often end up using my ATC's as a little card topper! they look so cute on a card.

Right then, cuppa, bloggy womble then crafty day!! wohoooo!!
have a fab day peeps
