DS has been to a birthday party .....

well Mega zone, they don't have parties at 10 and 11 lol.

Used a Mo image coloured with crayons and sansodor. I've toyed with the idea of Copics and Spectrum Noir but I just love my crayons. Might treat myself to some Spectrum Noir or the like crayons, but at the moment my Crayola's are good.
The paper is SU and We are memory keepers and the card is from my stash, along with the candy spots.

Made for 2 challenges. Love to create - Lines and Sketch Saturday.

Had a walk to Elvaston Castle today with my fellow Slimming world ladies, children and a couple of woofers. Really enjoyed it but my knee is very pain full now. I'm always in pain but have made it worse by the walk but I'm not prepared to let it stop me doing stuff.

Ta for popping in and taking a look at my ickle bit of cyber space. Feel free to comment good or bad and please drop by again.

Getting excited as Downton is back on telly tonight. Whoop !

Ta Dah ......

It's only taken me most of the day to do this card. The sentiment is blocked as it's for an order, but for 3 challenges too.

Love this cute couple by digi sparkle coloured using crayons and sansodor. Everything is from my stash, I think the paper is by Webster's pages. The 2 back panels are embossed and then inked.

1. The ABC Challenge - TIC TAC TOE so I chose Doily, Sentiment and flower.

2. Mojo Monday - Sketch.

3. The Pink Elephant - Embossing of any sort.

Well lost 3lb this morning at weigh in, so now I only have 2.5lb to my 3 stone award and 7.5lb to my target. I might change that when I get there, see how I feel.

Thanks for dropping in and apologies for nit being around much, work's been a bit hectic. Hope to see you again soon.

Would have got less for murder .....

Got this last night and 2 extra days holiday. Am proud. Have printed a family pic off to put at the back so that I can have it on my desk.

Back over the weekend with some cards.

Just got in .....

from work to find a note from hubby telling me to make sure I locked the car as our neighbour caught someone trying the doors of a car in the road last night. So I did as I was told and double checked the door as I always do.

Hoping to get a card or 2 done tomorrow morning before I go to work. Back in the office tomorrow so I'll be able to get on with my job list. Oh I do like a list don't you.?

Well I'm off to catch up with the residents of Albert Square and maybe a little create and craft tv. I've a lovely big mug of black coffee waiting for me.


Autumn is nigh .....

the weather certainly seems to be on the change, still warm though. Love this little chappie all dressed up ready to trick or treat. He's one on Mo Manning's of course and he's coloured using crayons and sansodor. The paper is from a pad I got from Aldi would you believe ages ago, by a company called Crelando. Fabulous quality and double sided too. The pic doesn't really show that parts are embossed. The sentiment is SU, the leaves were cut with the cricut and everything else is from my stash.

Now onto the challenges which I do so that I actually come into my craft room and create.

1. Allsorts - Sugar and spice. Nice spicey colours.
2. Cute card Thursday - Cute. Well no one can say he's not a cutie.
3. DP2 - Autumn/Fall. Lovely Autumn papers and theme.
4. Moving along with the times - Texture. There's embossing on the paper, have roughed the edges up and added hessian and string.
5. Sweet Sunday sketch over at the Sweetest thing - Sketch.

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon.

Beautiful Poinsettia's .....

Apologies for the pic, it's a bit dark I'm afraid. I've had these Poinsettia's stamped for about a week and have been dying to get a card made using them.

I stamped onto red tissue paper and then sprayed it with starch and left it over night to dry. A couple of days later I cut them out, scrunched them up and then stuck the 3 different sizes together and added tiny beads to the middles. I have another idea, but will have to see how that works out.

The paper is Kaiser craft that was free with a magazine, the sentiment is by Chloe's stamps and everything else is from my stash.

I made it for 2 challenges: 1. ABC Christmas challenge - R for Red Poinsettia's. and 2. C.R.A.F.T - Christmas.

Thank you for taking the time to pop in, hope to see you again soon. Off now to watch a bit of telly.


Mellow yellow .....

I've had this SU cutting die for ages and never really used it so I decided I'd give it a whirl today. Turned out alright me thinks.
The paper, ribbon and button are all from my stash. I even dug the old peel off's out.

Followed 2 challenges for this card. 1. Mojo Monday - Sketch and 2. The Pink Elephant - Photo inspiration ( daffodils, cream vase and black and white polka dot table cloth. Which explains all the elements of my card.

I'm working into the evening so don't get much chance to pop on here to post or to visit all your wonderful blogs. Which I miss.

I've filled the beverages and the biccie jar. Thank you for taking the time to visit my tiny piece of craft world. Your feedback is always welcome

Apologies .....

for not being around this week. I've been doing days into nights and haven't really had chance to pop on or make any cards. Sighs deeply.

Well it's been a rubbish day and I'm totally foo barred and it's times like this I would've found comfort in sweets, cake and chocolate but I want that 3 stone award more than anything. So I won't be driven into to my old habits.

Am off to catch up on last nights Eastenders, (there are other soap opera's available lol) and Bake off, oooo I wonder what happened this week.

I'll see you around and If I don't I'll buy one.

2. C.R.A.F.T - Back to school.
3. Crafts for eternity - Digital (the image).

Busy work wise ....

that's why the biccies haven't been filled up. Just popped a packet of shortbread in there for you all to enjoy.

Hate not getting on here and being able to look at your blogs. It's that nasty W word lol.

DS was back to school this morning. Off he went with new lunch bag, new coat and new shoes. Year 6 where does the time go ?


Wednesday, 3 September 2014

Busy bee .....

today as I've got the last few things to get ready for DS's return to school tomorrow. Yesterday was lovely and today is looking pretty much the same.

I'm hoping to get a card on later or tomorrow as I've got a new stamp set waiting to be inked. All I'll say is Christmas.

Working in a different location for the next 3 evenings so time may be a bit limited for crafting. Big sigh ! There's just so much I'd like to do, so many ideas running through my head and just not enough hours in a day.

Enough of my ramblings. Have  a lovely day whatever you're doing.

Just for a change ...

no card today, but I did manage to rustle up this PE bag for DS to go back to school with. I saw the fabric in my MIL's shop and had a light bulb moment.

It all fits in so that's a relief. I must get his uniform ironed tomorrow ready for Thursday. We have to go to school tomorrow to pick his tie up as they hadn't arrived at the end of term.

The weather seems to have picked up and is so sunny and warm out there. The washing is swaying in the soft breeze so that'll be dry soon I bet.

Well I'm off to get sorted ready for work, sort my lunch and tea out and try and second guess what the hubster and DS would like for their's. A clue would be nice sometimes.
