A Christmas make


How are we all today? Here's hoping we have another sunny November day like yesterday - it just makes you feel better even if it's chilly.

It's midway reminder time over at Nutcrafters and the theme is:

'Anything but a card'
so I've used a pillow box template from Funkyhand Twelve Crafters Crafting cdrom and made a tag from a die cut bauble and added one of the lovely Father Christmas heads from Nutcrafters. All ready for a present to go in it.

We'd love you to pop over to see what the rest of the teamies have made and join in with us too. 

Thanks for popping by.

Snowman hanger


It's new challenge time over at Nutcrafters and the theme is:

'Anything but a card' 
chosen by me.

I made a little wall hanging with one of Katie's new releases.

I inked the background using distress inks on my snowflake stencil, really like the effect and added a heart, ribbon, a calendar sheet and lots of swirly gems.

We'd love you to pop over to join in with us and to see what the rest of the teamies have made.


So how have we all been? I visited my Dad and his partner on Sunday as it was her birthday, so I took her some flowers for her present. Shannen came with me then we went to my Dads to do a few jobs for him in the house. Then we came home to do some crafting together.We wanted to try out some chalk paint on some plaques for gifts.The roller did it brilliantly.Such fun.

I'll be back in an hour with another blog post. Thanks for visiting me.

Kitty Kat download

I've popped by tonight to share another fab and funky download from Funkyhand called Kendrick Kat wordbook that was released yesterday.

Aren't they adorable for cat lovers. I loved playing with them as they are so fun.Here's my card:

I wanted to use the wordbook pages in a different way and the cheeky Kendrick Kat digital stamp
is so cool and easy to colour for .The digital stamp is only £1.49.The words on the papers are brilliant. I'm more of a dog lover but loved making this one. You get 34 printable pages of the letters A-Z, numbers 0-9 and 5 A4 matching backing papers too for £2.99.
Hope you like it too.


We got our futon back today from my Mum in laws. It wouldn't fit in our other house and now she needs the room so we've got it in our spare room.I say we got it back as in Shamus and a neighbour did all the lifting and too-ing and 
fro-ing. I supervised.The most important job I feel!!!! Ha ha. 

Been tidying and sorting out a couple of my craft drawers as they were such a mess. Very productive day really. Hope you've had a nice day.It's been a miserable rainy day in East Yorkshire.

Woof, Grr.....walkies

Evening all,

Thank you for all your lovely comments yesterday - you are all so kind. 

Today I've got a new download to share with you from Funkyhand, Anice has surpassed herself again creating another fab download. The papers are adorable for our lovely pet dogs.It's called the T Dawg Wordbook - you get 34 printable pages of the letters A-Z, numbers 0-9 and 5 A4 matching backing papers too.

I loved it as soon as I saw it.The wordy papers are so much fun. There is alot of inspiration over on the link above from all the funkettes.

Here's my card:

I made an easel card with a word book on it. It was so much fun doing a bone shape from a template. Olly is my Sister and her families dog and he is a bundle of energy.

This is a pic of him when they just got him earlier in the year, he's huge now and such long legs.:


Thanks for popping by today.Hope you have a lovely weekend whatever you're up to.

21 Years Married

Afternoon lovely friends,

It's my Wedding Anniversary today, 21 years of marriage. Woo hoo!!!! and I love him to bits. Now I'm not going to get slushy here - me, never.... We are having a day at home together like we usually do and having a nice thai curry for our meal tonight.We'll go out for a meal together another time. 

Here's the card I made for him yesterday. He doesn't like alot of fussy bits.
I used my Tim Holtz woodgrain stencil to emboss, I inked it up.The owls and the branches were from a stamp set from Hobbycrafts.

Hope you're all staying cosy in this chilly weather. I am.
Anyway I'd better get off my bum and do some crafting.Got a birthday card to do for Saturday so off I go.
