Grungy Monday - on a Sunday!

Hello there Fellow Crafters!

First of all may I say "Happy Mother's Day" to all you wonderful Mums out there!  Hope you are having a lovely day and have been utterly spoilt rotten by your loved ones.  I am not a "mother" to any small humans as were not blessed with any, but I have been "Mum" to three wonderful dogs and a few rabbits since I married my DH all those years ago.  I have also been "Aunty" to lots of my friends' children too.  This morning, my little Dobby "presented" me with a Boofle card, coaster and note book and my DH presented me with a bottle of Iron Brew Vodka (purely medicinal of course!)!  Dobby cannot buy it as he is not over 18! LOL!!!  Tea in bed and a bacon buttie - Perfick!!

(Awwwww!)

Next I must say "Hurrah Hurrah" to the Very Nice Man from BT and my Darling Hubby for getting me back on line again after 10 days of intermittent internet!!!  BT for getting the line to our home working and to Hubby for getting it the internet upstairs to my Craft Room!! 

Reacquaintance to the blogging world could not have come at a better time for me.  I unfortunately missed the deadline for Hels' Sunday Stampers but I am still in time (I hope!) for deadline of the Grungy Monday on Linda Ledbetter's Blog.  If you click HERE you will be whisked over to her blog by magic carpet!  I always wanted to join in Linda's previous Tim Holtz Challenge but as it was soooo late in the day when I joined the Blogging World I always felt it was too late to join in .  Now I am in on Number One of the new challenge and I aim to join in every week and hopefully learn more skills in the process!

Here is my little piece based upon Mr Tim Holtz's Tag 10 of 2010.  



I am totally in love with the new Sewing die and stamps which he has recently brought out, as you may gather from my latest pieces which I have made.  I am sure there will be some more projects appearing on my blog in the near future!!  Hope you like them too! 

Thanks for looking and please do leave me a comment so that I know that you have been here!

Internet willing I will speak to you very soon!

Hettie, welcome to Grungy Monday! I'm so glad you joined in and am just delighted by the awesome tag you created for our debut week! You used the sewing die and stamps to absolute PERFECTION, and really made Tim's technique your own. Beautiful work!

As another mom to exclusively "four-legged" children, I wish you a very happy Mum's Day!
