Lots going on

I've been very busy this week, working on lots of different projects. I've been working on Design Team projects again, which is a lovely feeling. I can't tell you about those, but hopefully, there will be lots of news regarding the Company and the new stamps soon.
I've joined in with an altered charm swap in the United States. Last year, I signed up for a napkin swap with the same lady, it was a great idea, you collected some napkins, sent them off, and you got sent some in return. I got some beauties, and want to make something with a few, time permitting, ha ha! Anyway, this time, you make a minimum of five altered charms, send them off, and you get five charms back, with a pin to hang them on. I have made two so far.
I followed Roni's suggestion to use plastic tubing to look like fused glass. I'm hoarding bottle caps to make a couple more charms today, and eyeing up an old dice to stick a hook in to make another one! She has some fabulous ideas, I don't know where she gets them all from.
I've also made a card for this week's Bah Humbug challenge, which was 'Buttons and Bows'. My card is not in traditional colours at all. I have used a set of stamps from My Sentiments Exactly, with Gingerbread men, which seemed to call for reds and browns. I was trying not to use Kraft card this week, but it sneaked in there again! Hopefully next week, I can go a little bit more traditional.
I've got lots more projects on the go this week, so hopefully, I'll be posting some more very soon. Thanks for popping by, Judith xx

oh Judith those charms are just fantastic - whoever receives those are going to be so pleased.
Your card as per usual is a wow. I really love your designs - I can't wait to see what you are working on. I'm sure it will be very special to start off the new company. All very exciting.

This is a great fun card. It takes me back to baking days at my nursery- trying to get 20 or so 4 year olds to put faces on their gingerbread men before the ate all the raisins or sneezed all over their masterpiece! Those were the days.

The charms are great Judith. I definitely need some of that tubing. I checked out Roni's blog from the link you sent me and you're right she does have some fab ideas.

Love the gingerbread man card. I love Kraft card too and it's spot on with the red and white.
