For Crafty Ann's Challenge which is 'Black & White +1'
The card is actually white but the lighting has made it look yellowish. The base card is matt white and the decoupage layers were printed on satin paper and some red glitter added round the frame.The trees were actually designed by me and the colouring in was done digitally. The final touches are three gems on the tree stars and a tiny silver tree charm coloured a little with a Sakura metallic pen. The font is 'Fontdinerdotcom Sparkly'.

For the Three Muses Challenge this week
When I saw the challenge was 'Time' I almost immediately thought of Albert Einstein and his Theory of Relativity; not that I understand it at all!
Done in PSP with all images courtesy of Google.
Font is 'Caslon Antique'

For this week's Art Creations Friday challenge
ACF gave us the image of this beautiful girl. I thought she looked as if she was thinking of something sad so I gave her a fiancé fighting in the First World War to be thinking of and worrying about. And, of course, he will be thinking of her too.

For today's Mixed Media Monday challenge.
As soon as I saw this picture from The Sum of All Crafts .....
...... I knew that she was a perfect image to represent 'I Am Woman'.
So I enhanced the colours a little
And then I framed her
And I think she speaks for herself so I didn't add anything else!

For the Three Muses this week
Arthur's dream is to appear as Titania in 'Midsummer Night's Dream' with George as Bottom although Sidney's not too keen on appearing as Mustardseed.
'Who are you calling a fairy?' he says!

For the new challenge at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog
For my nephew and his wife on their 5th wedding anniversary.
The decoupaged geese come from Joanna Sheen's 'Eastern Treasures' CDRom as does the main backing paper with the vertical column of geese. I made the other two papers using PSP. The embellishment is a white Chinese tassel and two Chinese coins.

Firstly, three cards made at the Sheena Douglass workshop that I attended recently in Kettering
Then a Word Book for my great-niece's 6th birthday
And lastly, a birthday card for her mother whose birthday is the same day as hers!

For the Three Muses Challenge this week.
No jokes this week! This lovely image is from a little Carte de Visite that I bought recently and I thought it was perfect for the challenge. I'm presuming the children are both girls although in the days when this photo was taken little boys were often dressed in what we now would consider to be girl's dresses so the smaller child could be a boy?
