Just in time for The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge Letter N


Good morning all, a quick post today before my family arrive for the weekend.

I am behind with my Craft Barn alpha challenge again, missed the deadline for L (with a window) but am on time for letter N (just).  My chosen word is nib.  A bit rushed and for some reason my brain would not get into gear for this one, here is my effort.  The stamps used were from Stampers Anonymous, Sheena Douglas and Indigo Blu, was going to add the two ducks from Alice Palace for the nib being a beak but  could't think where to put them.  Maybe I will get some inspiration next week when I get my crafty goodies out again.







I had more luck with  letter L (with a window), the word I chose was  lattice with my window placed round the definition.  The lattice was cut using the Silhouette Cameo, lemon and lime colouring for the background, and some lavinder flowers.  I placed a piece of stamped vellum in the bottom half of the window for a net curtain and finished with the letter L with a doodled lattice.   














Not many letters to go now, I may have missed a few deadlines for posting due to holidays but I am pleased I have managed to complete all the letters given so far.  Off now to do the dreaded housework and ironing before the hoards descend lol.

Visiting from The Craft Barn - Your 'Nib' page isfabulous! I love the way you wrote on your page & then added the 'writing hand' at the end. Very effective.
And I think that your L page is very beautiful :0)

Love the lettering in blue with splatters, looks just like the real thing, faded by age.

Wonderful view from your window. Love the flowers around it.
Every thing really catch the feeling of the nib - love the handwriting.
