What! Grungy Monday on a Monday!! Nah!!

Hi Guys and Gals

Well the weather outside is definately like the November we all know and love..... cold and miserable!!  Though at least it wasn't raining here in Wales.

Well, as you may gather from the title of this posting, I actually completed my Grungy Monday project on a Monday!  Yep!  Once I had read the Lushious Linda's posting for this week's Grungy Monday I was sooo excited I came into my Craft Room and got all inkied up! 

Can you guess what theme I chose?  Bet you will find it difficult..... I will give you a clue shall I .... It is a huge event in the Christian calender and it is next month.......



Did you get it right?  Well done if you did.  If you didn't then you are obviously one of those "last minute" people - a man!!!

HERE is where Linda sent us to see the technique for this week's GM.

I truly loved creating my piece(s) for this week's GM.  However, my first project did not look as good as I hoped so I made another tag.  Then I put the first tag under the daylight light on my desk, and ended up finishing it off to make a card.  Glad I looked before I delegated it to File 13 (the bin!). 

If you have seen some of my previous postings on GM you will see that I love making my own inkie mess using reinkers, perfect pearls, water and a mister.  Thanks Linda for this week's GM.  Loved it!!  I can see some more cards in a similar theme coming up.  Watch this space!!

Now before you go, please go and look on the Linda's blog and look at some of the other projects.  You can get there by clicking on the button on the side of my blog.  And if you want any more ideas from the Man himself Tim Holtz then click HERE to be whizzed over to his blog!   

See ya tomorrow Folks for WOYWW!!

Too funny that we both made GM Monday and posted today! I almost used the mask you used and how funny would that have been? So you just planned on buying some long plates and left with extra dies! Wish I could say that I have never been in your shoes! Now your GM creations are totally amazing! Love the inking and color combinations on both. Putting the tag on a card is a fantastic finishing touch! Love them both!

Thanks for the Birthday wishes! Well, it was GM now or never this week. I have not managed to participate since she re-started! I got out of the habit and have found that as the year is winding down, my work and schedule is winding up into a higher gear to get everything done before I shut the studio on 15 Dec for my annual 4 week summer holiday which is only a month away! EEEEK! Will be back to check out WOYWW!
