messy and bright

Creative Craft Challenges...our theme this fortnight is re-cycling so i decided on a beautiful sunny bank holiday Monday to have a play....a messy play

Out came the distress inks, some cut n dry foam and lots of baby wipes

I have re-cycled a very old dictionary i bought from a national trust place in the lake district...the original price was 1/6d...i think it means 1 shilling and 6 pence but i was very very young when this sort of money was around so not too sure!!!

Well i did have fun but not too sure how my inky fingers will look tomorrow at work!!!

Please have a look at what the other DT members have made...they are such a clever lot and they have come up with some fantastic ideas..one of them even includes a pair of jeans!!!!

As this card is so "bright" it just has to be entered into the challenge over at peartree...colourful

Ok...now i have to cross my fingers that i have scheduled this right so it pops up at just the right time

Hope you all had a wonderful easter break
