Lots of blue

Hello again,
Another new challenge over at Ruby's Rainbow and it's Valou's turn to choose the theme of:
'Anything goes

We'd love you to pop over to us at Ruby's Rainbow to see what the rest of the DT have created as well as joining in with the challenge, you will love all the inspiration.

Today I decided to share with you 1 of the cards I recently made for a lady who had looked on my blog and liked my cards.How kind is that, needless to say I was blown away.She picked a card that I'd made a couple of years ago so this is my updated version with a fresher feel. I also got an order of 3 more cards from this lady so I was over the moon.

The dress is a kanban stamp.It has been paper-pieced.The papers is a crafters companion cdrom.


Hopefully my post has gone live while I am being taken into Hull by my hubby.Need to check where we are going on Friday for my Great Aunts internment.Her ashes are being brought up from down south so she can go in with her parents as she wished.
Also if I'm well enough a quick look in Makro to get my large tins of hot chocolate to stock up my cupboards.Maybe grab a coffee too.

Have a nice day whatever you're doing.Thanks for popping by.

Anything but square...


It's new challenge time over at Nutcrafters and it's Helen's turn to chose the theme of:

'Anything but square'
So any shape of card etc..... as long as it's not square.

We'd love to see what you make so why not pop over and see what the rest of the teamies have made and join in with us.Please feel free to use a Nutcrafters freebie image too.

I know it's another pyramid/tee pee card but it's so different to any other card shape..... I used funkyhand papers, buttons, twine and the diigi stamp is called 'Puzzler.' 

So what's everyone been up to? Anything fun? Yesterday I dusted, did some washing and sat and sorted out all the receipts and outgoings all afternoon - such fun. Here's hoping today will be a good day for me and you.

Happy Birthday dear friend

Good morning,

Today I want to wish one of my very special friends 'Sheila' a very
'Happy Birthday'

I made the card below especially for her, so I hope she likes it and it's not too busy.

To make my card I for the background I used magazine freebie stamp, for the toppers I've used LOTV stamps - love these stamps. All inked with distress inks.

I've already had my shopping delivered today. something had leaked onto a few of my bags so had to do a lot of wiping and drying before everything got put away.Nightmare!!!! good job it was washing up liquid and not milk.

The sun is shining so hoping my bedding will dry and that I get a chance to craft today.Still being good and taking things easy.My arms are improving so long may it continue.

Thanks for popping by.

Lots of yellow

Afternoon all,

Back again with another Birdbrain card.I like to enter the sketches so had to get a move on to play before it finishes later. Love these fun birdie images.This is one of my favourites.
Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday. I've been having another easy day as I need to be feeling tip top when my Mum and Sister come to visit for a long weekend on Thursday this week.

For my something recycled I cut some squares out of a used cereal box and inked them up.


Thank you again for your lovely comments as always. I'm hoping to put a little candy together soon.

Flappy Birthday

Afternoon lovely blogger friends,

I am trying hard to keep my post to a minimum as I'm still trying to rest my left arm as its still quite sore.Popped it in a sling and trying to rest it as much as possible.Hubby is washing up, hanging the washing out and even seeing to our teas - wonderful man.

Here's a card I made this afternoon as I couldn't sit watching Tv all day, needed a tiny bit of crafting. I also followed my lovely blogger buddy Ruth's tutorial for making a Pyramid/Tee Pee card.Thanks Ruth!!!

I used gingham paper and the digi stamps from the stamp a month from the heart stamps-flappy-birthday-birdbrain, so fun coloured with spectrum noirs.


Have a nice weekend.

Happy Birthday Hubby

Back again with a quick post.
It's my lovely hubby's birthday today so, Happy Birthday Shamus, you are the love of my life!!!
I wanted to share the card I was making yesterday for him - I am so last minute...... nothing ever changes. He loves motorbikes so I managed to add a pic of his lovely Kawasaki project.
As we know men don't like a lot of fuss or a card that is mega busy.Clean and simple is the name of the game for him. I even added strips of ribbon to the card as I didn't have the right bakers twine, it doesn't look like ribbon though so that's good.

Have a great day whatever you're up to.I'm hoping to persuade hubby to go out for a cuppa later, if not we'll have a nice tea at home tonight and some yummy birthday cake.

Big hugs

Thanks for popping to see what I've been up to.I've been resting up after the mammagram appointment I went to last friday.It was just a check up due to my family history.It was my first one. I've been resting up since then as my arms have been naughty and very sore.Feeling alot brighter today so here's hoping. 

I also got a lovely surprise to hear that I had won a recent challenge over at Stamping Sensations. Wow I was so blown away.
