Tags and Toppers at MMM

Helloo and welcome its been a while since I last blogged but this morning I had time to play whilst I waited for the builders who were here to discuss the alterations and to sort out start dates etc.... which could be this week, eek! lots to do like clearing stuff out!! they are ringing me later today. If not this week it will definitely be next week.
 So this morning I played with my newly acquired Brusho paints. I've never used them before so this really was a leap in the dark!
 The challenge at Make My Monday this week is for
Tags  and Toppers
I chose TAGS
 Brusho Crystal colours: turquoise,Lemon and Scarlet.
Water Colour card
Stampendous: Large Tag
The Artistic Stamper: Birds of a Feather
Visible Images: Flower Inkognito
KaiserCraft: Just Believe.

For the background I sprinkled the dry paint onto damp water colour card, didn't get the desired look! so sprayed lots of water onto the card  then let it run off producing the look I wanted. I then just over stamped used what card was left to stamp the birds onto and cut out and attached. I would have liked to add them to a card but the builders arrived... so things got put on hold and since I'm very late I've just gone with the tags.
I hope you will join us for our Tags and Toppers challenge at make Make My Monday we look forward to seeing your creations!!
take care

Birds at MMM

Oops! I'm rather late in getting down to producing a card for Make My Monday... only just finished it!
but here it is
 The lovely Fliss is our hostess  and the theme she's chosen is
It's a lovely theme, I love birds on cards and was looking forward to making something for the DT but events over took me, like they do and are doing quite a bit these days so my card was a "hurry" job!
15cm x 15cm white base card.
Kraft card 14cmx14cm
DP: Papermania: Madame Payrauds
 SU: tag punch and stamp
Not sure where the Happy birthday stamp is from
Versafine: Onyx Black....  so a quick ans easy card. 

The reason my heads all over the place at the moment is down to all the alterations going on here at home
Would you like to see my new kitchen? which was fitted on Thursday... It took me ages to put all the kitchen paraphernalia back... fitting it all in, then remembering where every thing is!  
 I still need to choose wall tiles and the flooring... The flooring will not go down for quite some time yet... because I would like the same throughout!... and before that can occur, doors, walls and ceilings need to be removed, in the ceilings case, replaced... french windows added... hopefully all will flow! from one room to the other... The kitchen is the first job!!! the kitche fitter guys need to come back to put on doors and do bit of snagging!
here's the before shot!! taken the night before after I'd emptied all but essentials....
So please excuse my absence from commenting on your blogs... I do try!!  I think it might be some months  before I'm back to my blogging self :)
