So exhausting!


 Good morning- the last day of September has arrived, autumn is here, it's been a lot colder this week even though we have had some lovely sunshine. Jumpers and boots have been worn instead of t shirts and sandals and (whisper) we've even put the heating on for a short while in the evenings! Marvin has been snuggling in his basket rather than spreading himself full length on the kitchen floor as was his wont during the summer months, he's a bit big for it really but he loves it so much I don't have the heart to take it away! He has a memory foam bed that's bigger but it's just a flat mattress and obviously doesn't have the same apppeal, not that he's spoilt of course...

There's a new challenge starting today over at Crafty Catz, sponsored by Mirtillemente, the optional theme is 'Use some Blue'. Instead of a card I made a page for my journal, I coloured the fun and quirky So'Getta Happy Birthday image with Copic markers, then used Distress Inks and Oxides to create the stencilled backround. The stencilled panel is layered onto DP-many years old- which I've sponged with blue DI and added some stencilling. The sentiments are stamps from various companies . I've added some die cut and tiny stamped flowers. I loved making this, should make journal pages more often it's so relaxing!

As always there are plenty of beautiful creations from my lovely teamies- just click here to pop over and admire them! 

Thanks for visiting, have a good day

Poor Snowy!


 Good afternoon...ever had one of those times when everything goes wrong with a card you're making...well it did here! I treated myself to 'Snowy' a Penny Black stamp that I've wanted for ages, he was sitting on my desk waiting to be used. I had some time yesterday and went to ink him up for the first time...when I noticed teethmarks in the rubber!!!! Marvin has been very naughty, probably thought that the rubber smelt like his ball and need to be investigated. I'm not sure how the stamp got back on my desk but hubby was looking very shifty and quickly went outside when I noticed the damage.... Fortunately not too much damage, I can still use the stamp but Marvin (and Hubby) were in the doghouse for a while. 

Ok, Snowy stamped and coloured- I decided to add some Cosmic Twinkles to his hat- first glue wouldn't come out of the bottle-then it wouldn't stop and went everywhere! Left it to dry and fussy cut the little guy to get rid of most of the unwanted glitter, popped him behind the aperture, nearly done just the sentiment to stamp, so I bodged that too and had to add a panel over it! Snowy is now placed well out of the way of the jaws of death and I'm hoping for better luck next time I use him.

He just LOOKS innocent....

Christmas in September


 Good morning, for this fortnight's challenge at Sweet Stampin' we want to see your Christmas -themed creations...it will be here before you know it! Already the shops here are full of Christmas decorations etc, they'll be playing carols next....

I used my favourite stamp from last year to make my card, I think this snowy tree from Mama Elephant is beautiful and it's large enough to fill a card. This one was quick and simple to make, I stamped the tree, masked it and sponged the sky and some shadows on the snow, flicked the white ink around for snow- then stamped the sentiment, one that came with the set. 

Lots of lovely inspiration over at Sweet Stampin', so do hop over for a look! Then why not play along?  If you're planning to make your own Christmas cards and haven't started yet now would be good time to start!!

Thanks for visiting

 Good morning, time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz.
This week we're sponsored by Last Minute Manda- new to me! Some adorably images on this site so I chose the theme of Make it cute. I used the Bitty Bears Flower Patch digital images- there ar 6 digis in this set, so quick and easy to colour that I decided to use them all an d make a set of birthday gift tags. Here they are, coloured with Copics, a little  background stencilling and stamped sentiments. 

Do hop over to Crafty Catz,  where my lovely teamies have used these cute images on their fabulous cards, hopefully you'll be inspired to play along with our challenge- remember the theme is optional, anything goes at Crafty Catz.

Colours of Autumn at Fab'n'Funky Challenges

 


Good morning, I'm delighted to tell you that Fab'n'Funky Challenges are back after our summer break! 

This fortnight our lovely Pat is hosting and she's picked one of my favourite themes-

  Autumn Colours.

I'm always a bit sad to see the end of summer but I do love the wonderful colours that Autumn brings, I dug out my Lavinia stamps and stencils and had a lovely inky time playing with them.  I used glitter pens to colour the fairy's wings and flicked some gold glimmer paint over the finished card. (It's meant to spray- but doesn't...I've tried everything to unblock the nozzle but no luck so I flicked it from a brush instead!)

Please do hop over to Fab'n'Funky to see the beautiful cards my lovely teamies have created, you won't be disappointed and I'm sure you'll be inspired to play along :)

I'm just back from holiday myself, a lovely week in beautiful Devon. The weather was great, we met up with friends, talked our heads off and ate too much! We enjoyed some lovely walks with Marvin who had a wonderful time- on the beach every day- he LOVES the sea- playing and swimming. I'm happy to say that he was as good as gold all week- probably because he was worn out!

On the beach paying with his precious ball!


Thanks for visiting,have a good day

A fun night out on the town


 Good afternoon, a quick post from me to share the card i made for my daughter's birthday next month- need to get ahead as October is a very busy month for birthdays for me! I've used this stamp before, it always makes me smile as these 3 girls make me think of my lovely daughter and her besties! They've been the best of friends since their first year of grammar school. They celebrate all their big occasions together- weddings, arrival of their children, birthdays etc and they go away on holiday together whenever they can- they all pay into a joint savings account and when they have enough saved off they go! A welcome girlie time away from partners and kids where they can relax and be themselves. They've been to New York, Boston, Dublin, Las Vegas as well as many short breaks and weekends in the UK.

The image is coloured with Copic markers, then fussy cut (not easy cutting around all those long legs :) as I wanted to make it look as if they were looking out over the night city. I found the background image online and printed it twice to build up my card, which is a sort of easel with a double bump! It does fold flat though. 


Anyway, that's it from me, thanks for stopping by and have a lovely evening (or day)

Snowman hugs


 Good afternoon, a bit of a change in the weather today, cloudy with rain threatening, not a day for the garden so I made a card for my Christmas stash. I coloured this sweet Teddy Bo digi with my Copics and spattered some inky snow. I used various scraps of paper from my never-ending scrap box  and followed the sketch from Cheerful Sketches.
Thanks for visiting, enjoy your day.

September Challenge at Crafty Calendar


 Good morning, it's hard to believe that September has arrived...it's far too soon!!! I'm not ready for summer to end yet- but at least we had one this year. OK we did have some unbearably hot weather for a while but on the whole it's been an amazing few months with so much wonderful sunshine- I'm hoping it's not over yet! 

Our new challenge at Crafty Calendar begins today- this month the theme is 'Anything Goes' and we are sponsored by the fabulous Sheepski Designs.

 My card was made using the lovely  Mini Tree image.I printed the image onto multi media paper, masked and stamped the fir trees in the background using Versafine Clair ink, then sponged the sky and snowy ground using Distress inks. I coloured the image withdistress inks and water, stamped the sentiment and then had fun flicking white ink for the falling snow. I'm a bit out of my comfort zone colouring with the Distress Inks so I'm quite pleased with how it turns out....and for once I managed not to put a dirty great inky fingerprint in the wrong place!

As always there are some lovely creations from my talented teamies over at Crafty Calendar so please do hop over to enjoy them, I hope you'll  be inspired to join us this month.

Thanks for visiting

Have a great weekend.

Motherhood....


 Good morning,  it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin', the theme for this fortnight is food and/ or drink.
 I've used some fun  digistamps from Vera Lane Studios, teamed with some 'real' stamps for the border and wine glasses. Images coloured with copic markers and a little background stencilling. This card was inspired by my Daughter-in-law's experience during Lockdown last year- she's not a drinker but she said the only thing that kept her sane looking after a lively 7 year old and a demanding toddler was googling  ' holiday getaways  for two- no children allowed' - with a large glass of wine in hand, after she'd put the girls to bed! I doubt if she was the only young Mum doing this!

 Please take a look at the challenge blog, there's plenty of inspiration from the rest of the team and, hopefully, you'll be inspired to join us. We do need to see some stamping on your creations (digis are fine!) 

Thanks for visiting, enjoy the weekend.

Peony


 Hi, it's been another hot and humid day today- I've spent quite a lot of it sitting in the shade reading, too warm to do much. Thunderstorms forecast for tonight with rain most of the day tomorrow- it's very much needed here in the SE.

 I made this CAS card using Peony, an adorable image from Mo Manning ( it was a Patreon freebie, I don't think it's on the website yet). This little piggy knows how to keep herself cool! Peony is coloured with Copics and I've added a stamped sentiment.

That's it from me today- I'm off out to meet some friends for dinner- too hot to cook (my excuse..and I'm sticking to it!)

Happy, happy dog


 Hello, I'm waiting for my son to arrive to collect me for baby-sitting duties, enjoying a quiet cup of coffee and writing this post- the calm before the storm. I don't think I'll be doing anything very peacefully for the next day or so...Emily has 'plans'!!!! I don't know what she's got up her sleeve but I'll find out soon enough! 

This is a card I made a while ago, inspired by Marvin running through a field, he just looked so happy with his ears flapping in the breeze and that huge tongue hanging out! He just loves to run and be free! 

The stamp is from Picket Fence, coloured with Copic Markers to look like my boy. The background scene is created with varios stamps and stencils. The base of the easel has stencilled pawprints and layered die cut sentiment.

It is a little cooler here and we have had some much needed rain but still struggling to sleep at night in these too- warm temperatures, ah well it won't last forever and soon  we'll be missing the sunshine, August is just flying past!

Fairy Bridge



 

Hello, a quick post from me, sharing a card I created with Distress inks and some Lavinia stamps. Most of them are stamps I've had for some time, the foliage and grass stamps in the foreground are new- I really love the delicate grass one, it's so beautiful- my new favourite stamp!

It's a glorious day again today- much nicer than I expected, not nearly as hot as I thought it would be, so off for a read in the garden :)

Mermaid wishes...


 Good morning, it's been another hot and very dry week here, haven't felt like doing a lot! I've sat about reading a lot of the time, made a dress for my youngest granddaughter...she loves it because it 'spins' when she 'swishes'! Had a lovely afternoon with my two sisters a few days ago- it's always great to see them both together, my brother who lives locally wasn't invited as he has covid for the third time! This time the symptoms were worse than previously but fortunately he's over it now. My two youngest granddaughters and DIL  came for the afternoon  on Wednesday, and at last, Charlotte the 3 year old, has decided that Marvin is not going to eat her! No shrieking in fear every time he gets within 10 feet of her and it was a real joy to watch them playing together and see her laughing when he tried to catch the bubbles! Marvin had a great time too- two little girls to play ball with, he couldn't believe his luck. 

I made this card just because I could, the sweet little mermaids are both Mo Manning digis, coloured with Copic markers, papers from theWorks, some stamped shells and starfish, hand-drawn seaweed (I don't have any seaweed dies!) and lots of tiny pearls. 

It's a glorious day today- warm sunshine, cloudless sky and a lovely cool breeze so I'm off to sit in the garden and read for a while- I'll try to ignore Marvin with his pesky ball as I know he's going to join me! (It won't be easy!)

Marvin with his beloved ball

A bit shabby...


 Good morning, here's my DT card for this fortnight's challenge at Sweet Stampin', the theme being Shabby Chic/Vintage /Distressed. I'm way out of my comfort zone here- it's not that i don't like the style- I just can't seem to get it right! My cards always look as if I've chucked on everything but the kitchen sink...but at least I tried! The image is a sweet Sarah Kay digi, coloured with pencils, the little tags are LOTV stamps- I've added lace, ribbon- die cuts fibres, pearls, a wooden leaf spray, faux stitching...no room for the sink! You don't want to know how many times I pulled this apart and started again ...

There are some MUCH better inspiration cards from my lovely teamies over at Sweet Stampin' so do hop over for a look-see. I hope you find some time  over the next 2 weeks to create something beautiful and play along.

Thanks for visiting

Have a happy weekend

Dog on a bike


Good morning, here's a couple of Christmas cards I made using a stamp from Katzelcraft that I couldn't resist buying- I coloured the dog to look like Marvin- he's such a clever boy, I'm sure he could ride a bike if he wanted to! The details on this stamp made me smile, the bone-shaped present and the tiny bones on the Christmas tree pot- so cute! I need loads of cards so kept the design simple- just the coloured image, a bit of distress ink smudged around it and white ink spatters for snow, stamped the sentiment- done.

Anything Goes at Fab'n' Funky

 


Good morning, this fortnight's challenge over at Fab'n'Funky will be our last before the summer break.

The theme this time is 'Anything Goes'.

I went with a Christmas card, because I'm trying to get some done and also because I'd already coloured this cute Conie Fong digi. I misplaced it for a while...so I thought I'd use it before it disappeared again. The image has been fussy cut and popped up on foamon top of the white embossed panel. I've added a die cut tree and some little parcels.

My teamies have been busy creating too - you can see their fabulous work over at Fab'n' Funky, we're hoping you can find time to join us over the coming fortnight.

Thanks for visiting

cool as a ...mermaid


 Phew! Just not used to these temperatures here! I'm hiding indoors, blinds and windows closed , my craft room is the coolest in the house, nice and comfortable in here :) Too hot  for me outside- even in the shade, there is a breeze but it's a hot one!  Marvin is spreadeagled in front of the fan, nice and quiet now but not going to be impressed when he realises that he's not getting a second walk today, far too hot for crazy dogs to run around even in the shady woods. 

My card today was inspired by watching my small granddaughters play in their pool with their mermaid dolls, one way to keep the kiddies cool when the temperatures rise. The dolls were really cute with lovely purple and turquoise hair, hence my colour combo! The  beautiful image is  Moth and Fern from Ching Chou Kuik, to me she looks like mermaid. I've coloured with Copics as usual. I recently bought some DP pads from the Works- fantastic value at £4 each-  12x12 papers in beautiful colours and patterns and good  quality, not at all flimsy. The one I've used here looks like water so a great background for my mermaid. I've framed her with tiny pearls and added a starfish (cut from the cover of one othe paper pads, a little seahorse and some diecut leaves that look a bit sea-weedy. A few clear 'drops' and stamped sentiment to finish.

Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy the rest of it, wherever you are, whatever you're doing and whatever the temperature.

Snowflakes and sparkle




Phew! It's been a very hot week here! I hid in the craft room and cooled myself down with thoughts of snow and ice  creating this card for our challenge over at Crafty Catz, the optional theme for this week is Christmas in July, the snowflake ballerina is courtesy of our lovely sponsor-
COLOUR OF LOVE


Prize - 3 images from store

I coloured the image with Copic markers and a white gel pen, adding plenty of glitter, which has a lovely sparkle IRL. the background is a snowflake die cut panel cut from silver glittercard layered over deep blue glitter card. The snowflakes are cut from white card and white vellum then layered together. I've added ribbon, gems and a die cut sentiment. 
 

This will be our last challenge before the summer break, we'll be back in September,  it would be great to have you join us - you do not have to follow the theme, as always we love to see anything you have created.

Guest Design at Creative Creases







 Good morning,  back in April I was lucky enough to be a winner over at Creative Creases and Debbie has  kindly invited me to be a Guest Designer for this fortnight's challenge. I made a Balcony Fold card using stamps from Honey Doo, some die cuts and papers from Heartfelt. This fold is easy to do (loads of tutorails online!) and folds flat for posting. I've tried to get photos from all angles. I haven't tried this fold before but will definitely using it again.

Whatever the weather at Fab'n' Funky


 Good morning, there's a new challenge starting today over at Fab'n' Funky
hosted by our lovely Pat. Her chosen theme is 
Whatever the Weather.

I chose to make a Christmas card as I'm sadly behind this year, I hate having a last minute panic to get them done, it takes all the fun out of it for me!  The cute snowman digi is from QKR Stampede and the background 'snow' lettering is a homemade stencil cut on my (sadly neglected) Cricut machine. I cut the word once on a small piece of card , removed the letters and inked through the negative with Distress Ink, moving the stencil down the card and trying to fade the ink slightly as it got nearer to the snowman. I added die cut snowflakes to the 'O's.

There's more inspiration from my teamies over at Fab'n'Funky and we'd love to see what you make of this challenge!

Thanks for visiting

Think of a number...


 I'm a little late with my card for this fortnight's challenge at Sweet Stampin' , I had every intention of posting yesterday after I got back from my granddaughters' dance show but , I cannot tell a lie,  the tennis lured me away... 

The challenge theme this fortnight is 'use numbers' this is the card IO made for my friend's youngest grandson. The stamp is from Uniko, I stamped and embossed it twice , once on dark blue card and once on pale blue, I cut out all of the balloons from the pale blue one (easy because of the embossing) and paper-pieced them onto the dark blue version, which I matted onto silver crackled card. The numbers were die cut from the same silver card. I mounted the panel onto a larger panel of the same dark blue card, stamped and embossed the sentiment to finish.

Please visit the Challenge Blog and check out the fabulous creations from the rest of my team, we hope you're inspired to join us - just remember to stamp something as well as adding a number!

The dance show was great btw, it was postponed from Christmas because of you-know-what, it's just a small dance school and the shows are very relaxed and fun with all of the pupils from tiny tots in their cute tutus to mature lady tap dancers enjoying taking part. My granddaughters, aged 15 and 12 are learning Street dance, there are 7 girls in their group and they performed 7 different dances- of course they were brilliant!! 

Thanks for visiting...must go -the tennis is calling!
