A bit blue

The cards above and below were made with papers from a Christmas Pad - I've had the pad for a while and tried to use papers last year but none of them seemed to match so I think a lot of the papers will end up in the bin. I had stash of small envelopes and used an A4 piece of card which I cut up to make this fold over type card .

It's been ages since my last post -I've been busy getting the garden ready for the Summer and part of this has been making the veggie patch smaller- we always grow more than we can eat.
I'm working on a cross stich of a sausage which will be made into a cushion- it should be finished in the next two weeks.

baby elephant

Baby elephants are as cute as can be but once they are fully grown they can move mountains with their strength.

Birthday Boy


I've had this image since 2014- it came from Handmade Harbour- I printed the image twice and cut out just the star from one image to add some depth.-

Passion for ProMarkers - week 404 - bright colours -I used Aqua Markers in Blue ,Red and Yellow.

hello baby

Southern Girls - challenge 164 - tic tac toe  - I've gone with the diagonal of flowers ,image and ribbon.

We've had rain now for 2 days which doesn't happen very often - yesterday my little kitty Bella was very unhappy - we have a litter in the spare bedroom which she refuses to use - she wouldn't go out in the rain ( it was very very heavy ) - we sat her in the litter tray but it did no good - I'm guessing her tiny bladder couldn't hold it in anymore and at 4.15 this morning she came and woke us up so that we could let her out - as it's raining again today I have a funny feeling we will have to go through all this again tonight.

I decided less is best and after looking through all my patterned papers I went for a plain one with a linen finish.

Christmas bling

Scrapbook Boutique - June challenge - a great colourboard if you love gold and black - my two patterned papers have been in  my stash for over 10 years and are from Paperflair - I used my favourite stamp for the sentiment which I stamped in gold and the used a clear embossing powder - 3 layers each for the trees to give them some depth.

Well ,the cold have really arrived now with a minus 4 last night - my craft room was so very very cold this morning - I did turn on the heating but for the short time I was in there it really didn't do any good - the lens on my camera kept misting over and I had take several pics to get just one reasonable shot.

A few cards I made in June

I made these cards but didn't have the time to enter them into any challenges - I have been busy painting inside the house and also getting the garden into shape before the winter weather kicked in.

give me the eye

Southern Girls - challenge 162 - stuck on you - I used joggle eyes as my stuck on element- still keeping this card very CAS.

It seems forever since I last posted  - I did make some cards at the end of April and posted them off completely forgetting to take a photo.

The two of us

This  card uses some of my washi tape stash -    the background is very very pale blue  - just need to add a sentiment -still deciding

'come rain or shine I'm glad your mine'

'we are better together'

' you make me happy when skies are grey'

'whatever  the weather glad were together '

DAD cards

I was asked for a Dad card with a motorbike - as you can see two very different cards - I give the top  image a modern paper to bring it up to date and the bottom image I added a slight bit of colour to match the trendy paper - the bottom card was picked which was when I added the sentiment - I will leave the top card blank until another male birthday of Fathers Day come around.

Pretty in pink

Once the images were coloured I added glitter to the veil and the bottom of her dress - I added a Wink of Stella to his bowtie and waistcoat - not easy to see on the photo.
