.............for my absence :-(

Firstly I went to see Take That on the 7th of June and just couldn't even think about crafting after that..............I was just still too excited LOL :D
I will share some pics with you at some point I promise!!!

Then secondly I went for an op on my throat earlier this week and it has wiped me out :-(
I have never felt pain like this and can't wait for it to go away again!!
I have had my tonsils removed, the sides at the back of my mouth trimmed and an dangley-bit-ectomy (the uvula I think its called!!!)

I have loads of projects in my head but don't have the patience or energy to even start them right now.

Hopefully things will start to settle down soon so that I can at least stay awake long enough to play :D

Hugs'n'air kisses this week - to delicate for snogs sorry!!!

Dolly Mixture

Moira's current Happy Daze facebook challenge is "Dollies" and here's my take on it :D

The base is a Russian doll money box I picked up in a local bargain store and have been planning on altering for some time - this is the smallest of a set of three.

The main image is a Scrolls Work stamp (which I love!!!) stamped and embossed on to tissue paper.
The doll was gessoed and then painted with acrylic paint then randomly stamped with two scroll type stamps from the Artistic Outpost Birds of a feather plate.

When everything was dry I glued on the stamped image with a glue stick then coated everything with multi matte medium.
I also glued on my embellies with this including the cute shrink plastic heart from a crafty individuals stamp :D
when everything was dry I gave it a quick spritz with cosmic shimmer mist.
Pop on over to the HAPPY DAZE facebook page for details on how you could win a £15 voucher for the shop :D

I am also going to add this to the Crafty Individuals blog challenge - Vintage with a heart.
