Nice and easy - do whatever you want this week for us on Cute Card Thursday!!

The papers are from Cosmo Cricket "Odds and Ends" Mini Paper Stack, flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts, sentiment if Craftwork Cards and die-cuts Tim Holtz for Sizzix.

Altered CD Swap

Another altered item from a UK Stampers Forum swap. This time it was to alter a CD.

I decided to make a clock as I have had movements FOREVER and never used them lol!! I used Adirondack dabbers on the fingers to make them metallic. The paper is from Prima Botanicals 6x6 pad and is over-sprayed with Glimmer Mists using a Tim Holtz mask. The sentiment is from a Paper Artsy set and the other stamps are from Crafty Individuals. The numbers are peel-offs from Anita's Glitterations range. Some chain and charms finish it off (thank you Crop-a-Dile!!).

Following on from the sardine tin swap a few of us on the UK Stampers forum entered into a tuna tin swap. This is mine.

I painted the tin with gesso and an Adirondack dabber before covering with paper stamped with a Papermania chandelier stamp.

I cut some chipboard for the dividers and a piece for the lid, decorated and added a little Websters Pages button on top. A few little embellies for the inside and it was ready to swap!!
