The challenge this week over at TUESDAY TAGGERS is JIGSAWS..... i choose to recycle an old one of my girls... would you believe this started life as a disney princess jigsaw...( if you continue reading this post you'll BELIVE IT.... our house is full of the girly princess stuff!)
I took 9 joining pieces and painted them white, then stamped one of my collection of skull stamps on it to make a pattern... put an eyelet in each piece and a slip ring and joined them on to a key chain.... if you get bored... really bored.. you can take it a part and do the jigsaw!
Please go and check out the other DT offerings.... all of them are terrific... the link is on my sidebar.... you have a couple of days left still.

Last week was my choice of challenge and i choose to 'use christmas scrap in a non-christmassy way'.... as you can see by the photo, most of the christmas scrap in our house is girly pink, princess stuff.... and everything comes in TWO'S.... pass me the sick-bucket please!
Anyhow i made two.... (i am so used to making 'girly-stuff' in two's it was just natural to do two for the challenge) princess birthday cards for the girls little friends using christmas cards cut up and packaging scraps... only trouble is the girls now wanna keep them so i might just send them to the girls for their birthay in june... cheap-skate hey?

This bird tag was made for AVRILS challenge, the 1st week after our christmas break.
I used one of my favourite RAVEN stamps from a plate i brought from 'SCRAPZ'.... i stamped and masked and coloured with ink.... and used lots of black ink smudged about.... HAPPY, HAPPY HAPPY!!!!
I want to thank all of the design team for being there for me... everyone on the taggers team has a heart of gold and they are the most understanding bunch of girls i have ever met... i thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness, understanding and constant support during the last 4 weeks. THANK YOU ALL.
LOVE lynx

  2. Oh hope it was not my comment that 'forced' you to post when circumstances make it hard very sorry.
    Really wanted to post my admiration for your work especially the tag and jigsaw, enjoyed your challenge with the scraps but am more in tune with your 'darker' work.
    Hope things are OK with you and looking forward to seeing more of your amazing stuff.

  3. I LOVE your jigsaw keyring, what a fab idea, I think I'll do one for my daughter, love it hun.

    I cannot believe you did the Princess cards - all that grief you used to give me and you're a secret girlie-card maker yourself LOL! Really pretty though hun, just fab for little girls.

    Loving the ATC too - great work all round

    Take care
