I had a little play yesterday and made a couple of tags..... the one above is for the 1st ever challenge  at SMUDGER CHALLENGE BLOG  .... owned by my buddy Andrea, who is an incredibly multi-talented minion at HDH ..... the challenge theme is FEAST OF FOOLS.
I coloured my images in bright spring colours with promarkers to contrast with the hidiousness of the smiling skulls.
The challenge lasts til the end of the month so you still have time to play along.
I shall enter this in the following challenges also.... ANYTHING GOES. YELLOW AND SUNSHINE. FUN AND GAMES USE YELLOW FOOLS

Now over at DRAGONS DREAMS we're in the 2nd week of the challenge set by Frankie... the dragon herself....SECRET GARDEN.
I didnt have my tag done for last week, but Frankie said she was intrigued to see what i'd do with this theme so with more crafting time this week i made this tag.....

 ...its really two tags together ...... move the ivy and see the idyllic garden scene beneath! Its all stamped and fussy cut ( it is all recycled from a canvas i made back in february....and that was using recycled card! )
The images are from various companies..... but the spider and sheep that i adore are from SMEARED INK. I put the word 'welcome' on it as it is one of my favourite words and fits nicely with the challenge at SIMON SAYS STAMP.....
I hope you'll have time to join us at DRAGONS have til next tueday evening. I'll enter these challenges as well....... ANYTHING GOES. FANTASY..... skelly sheep and skelly in a garden wearing a rose crown.... hope thats fantastic enough. men or boys BIRDS OR ANIMALS......spider and dead sheep....most boys would laugh at this! BOLD AND BRIGHT PHOTO INSPIRATION
Thanks for visiting see you soon BDx
