Frilly and Funkie and my thanks to Terry

Last week I had an email from terry at 'Terry's work in progress' telling me to check out her blog as I had won a prize in her two year blogaversary draw. Well I was so excited to find that it was a $25 certificate to the Funkie Junkie Boutique. Now this little treasure trove is masterminded by Linda Coughlin of The Funkie Junkie blog and also the new Frilly and Funkie challenge blog. I had no problems spending my money at Linda's Zibbet store, oh no indeed not, in fact I spent more than the certificate and am just waiting for my lovely goodies to arrive. I have to say if you love anything lacy, shabby and vintage then do go over and take a look at what is for sale. There are also staple products like distress inks as well and the prices are amazing. Not only that I had a problem with getting through to PayPal and emailed Linda to let her know. What did she do? She sorted it all very quickly and sent me a new invoice and in the meantime whilst waiting for me to pick up the email and pay she had shipped my order out already. Now that is service, thanks Linda.

And of course A BIG THANK YOU TO TERRY as well. You are a great blogger and artist Terry. I am so pleased I have got to know you through this amazing world of blogging and I am so excited and looking forward to meeting you in person when I come to LA in the Summer.

So onto some art.

The challenges at Frilly and Funkie are fortnightly and this time round the theme is 'I'll take your word for it' and the challenge is to have the words/sentiment/saying/quote as the focal point of the project.

I have made a tag, which I think is a mix of frilly and funkiness and I hope fits the bill. I have used DP, inked and painted and spritzed with perfect Pearls mist, there is a fab vintage birdcage image, one of my downloaded butterflies and some embellishments including lace and trim with a focal quote that I found on the internet and printed out on digital backing paper. The shabby ribbon and tulle were both dyed or inked to get the colours I wanted.

I hope you had a great Easter weekend. Mine wasn't so good as my hubbie has been admitted to hospital. Just waiting to hear what the diagnosis is.

Take care.
