Hands -Think Monday think ATC

This is for this week's challenge at TMTA. The theme is hands. I had an old leaftlet from the Ministry of Education with lots of hands (sorry, I don't know who designed it), so I cut out one of the hands and left only the red background. The text I used is from an old test I made for my students years ago. The little red things stamped on the hand that look like flowers are actually closed hands with turned up thumbs (I've used that stamp on the "Men" moo I made some days ago.) The little girl was downloaded from As for the red leather background, well it is one of my handbags turned upside down. :-)

Good news!

Guess what... I've just visited Patty's blog - check it out; she makes stunning artwork - and found out I was the winner of her 300th blog post giveaway. :-) I won a gorgeous ATC! :-) That's really a blogcandy! Thank you Patty!

Hearts - Small World of Inchies

This week's theme at Small World of Inchies is "hearts". I had some scrap paper with golden hearts I had stamped to use in another project and colourful advertising leaflets from Lidl supermarket on my desk begging to be used, so I ended up with hearts wrapped in shopping bags and ready to be taken home. ;-)

Men - Make a moo

Yes, it's the actor Karl Malden. I don't know the name of the other actor, but this is a photocopy from a scene in Hitchcock's "I confess". This moo I made for Make a Moo or Two was supposed to be about Monty Clift (my favourite actor), who was also in the photocopy (he played the role of Father Michael Logan in the film). However, as I started making the moo I realized I didn't need to make it with the five men originally featured in the picture. The title of this moo could be "Always play to win". I was too lazy to stamp the word "always", though. In order to do that I'd need to place every single tiny letter close to another and form the word before stamping it.
