Almost the last day of June post..!!!!!!!


I have no clue how this happened but seriously, tomorrow is the last day of June and so far our weather has not been wonderful. We get the odd few days and then, BAM, rain, gales and thunder storms, my little plants are not happy, who can blame them :)) 


I had a couple of vine wreath things laying around so thought just sort one out at least, so I did, here it is, sorry its hung on my blackboard door but its waiting for Carla to spot it and be whisked away as only she can do haha.

Everything was in my stash so it was good to use some up, I have there will be more I think..
The ribbon is wired, bought about two years ago on ebay I think, at last it came in handy.
The home sweet home you can see is written on the board for anyone wondering.
Thats it again. I hope your all keeping well and looking after yourselves.
The sun is shining now so am off to look at it before it goes away again :))
See you in July..xxxx

Yet another sign...please don't all sigh at once....:))


Made this one for my sweet Mia who wanted one to take back to her new 'digs' when she returns to Uni in the autumn, and the way the weeks fly by that won't be long off will it, although it can take its time for me, the longer she stays the better for us all, she has that effect on people...

She chose the colours, pink and rose gold, Dovecraft chalk paint in pink and acrylic for the gold, lots of screen stencils, I prefer those as they have that sticky back which is brilliant, the  ribbon is stash which she chose too the only thing I didn't have was gold wire, that will be rectified shortly.


I was trying to catch the light to show how that rose gold shimmers, this is the best I can get...
Thats it again, at least I did something, although I am working out some resin 'stuff '. Its alot of fun but very time consuming like watching paint dry, however if it 'takes' I will be going for the UV one, its much quicker from what I hear , time will tell.
I hope you are all enjoy this gorgeous weather, we have to make the most of it, heaven knows the winters are dragging out longer every year and its good for the soul.
Stay safe lovely people and take care.

Its been awhile....


Hello friends, its been some time and I was wondering if I would ever bother again, but here I am for today anyway. I just had to step away, even FB which I am using mainly for messenger now, it all got on top of me, it amazes me how awful some people can be and I wonder why!!!

I must say a huge thankyou to the lovely people who have reached out to me and sent some of the loveliest cards, so thoughtful and it was so unexpected. I have thanked you all you know who you are.


Anyways, I ordered some round mdf board from amazon and did what I like best right now, painted in black acrylic fixed then stencilled in white paint, the ribbon was in my stash and the wire hanger is from a roll I bought years ago and is still going strong, just wish I could remember where it was from...

Thats all for now , I hope to be back sooner rather than later, thankyou to anyone who may come over and leave me a comment, it helps alot.

Take care won't you.

GDT card for CraftyCatz challenge #594.


Good morning, yes I am doing a little DT spot for my old friends at Crafty Catz and its been so nice to join the lovely girls there for this one. Please go over and see all the lovely designs they came up with HERE  As alwasy its ATG challenge with the added optional  twist,  chosen by Chris  she would love to see Hand coloured images please, no problem Chris...:))

They are sponsored by All Dressed Up this week and did get images to use, I decided to use one from my files, she is very cute and I love her hat to be honest :)


Here is my card

She was coloured with Copic markers and PM, the sentiment is from an old stamp set. I wasn't happy with her skin at all, tried again and its not right, my markers are playing up, I have asked around and am not alone with this problem. Maybe time to look for something new.!!

Cut the image with an unmarked die that has sat in the folder for ages and added the usual waxed thread.

Hope you will join in and maybe win a nice ADU image.

Thankyou so much for your visit, enjoy the

Quick post


Just been having a look through files and found these I made awhile back, never posted so here we go.

I bought a few cork coasters and to jazz up a touch, printed the images, coloured with the usual markers and modge podged them down and when dry sealed with same. They have held up well in my craft room....I use that term loosely, I am in the back porch, nothing exciting at all.

 I like them but its always a matter of taste isn't it.

Ok, am off to think what to have for tea, I am abit peckish by now so who knows.

Thanks so much for taking time to look.

I can't believe its already Thursday.....


Honestly the weeks are flying and I am at abit of a standstill. Its all very odd, Mia has gone back to Uni for the last of her work and to wrap up her first year.....can you believe it, and then she won't be going back there  until October!!!!!! thats of course when they have to live off Campus and that scares the heck out of me, but they have all been house hunting and found something nice, I like that all eight of them are sticking together, when I first heard it was a mixed bunch I thought WHAT !!!!! haha, but they are wonderful friends and I am so glad they really look out for one another.....Oh dear I am going right off track again, so sorry.

I have made a card, I saw this image from Lisa Twistoon and loved it, had to have and so here it is.

 Coloured with a mix of Copics and Prisma pencils, has anyone else noticed how pens are drying up faster than ever, not changed storage place, just find it odd. The little sign is blank so you can add anything you like on that bit, quite useful.

The waxed thread is from my stash and I layered it up on darker card from PM.

Thats that, hope you like.

One last thing, sweet granddaughters cat, was missing for a while last week, well everyone was out looking for her, I can't get about with my back still doing 'its thing', but I looked up from my garden chair and can you see who was just sat there enjoying the fuss...haha

I thought it was funny anyway, haha...

So sorry about going on so much. I hope your all keeping well and staying safe. Be back soon as I am doing a GDT for CC next week...I think, oh best check that one....

Happy Easter...


These were quickly put together, I actually forgot to make the tags for the kids easter gifts, well the older ones anyway, it was sheer luck I had  pre-cut some of these gorgeous flowers I first fell in love with at Chrissy's blog, so it had to go on Mia's didn't it. The boys, who aren't really that bothered any more, I just cut a couple of grey board tag shapes and played about abit, inked and that was about it, nothing exciting but the money with the eggs will soften the blow haha.

Even the image was one I had already coloured up a while back, so it was all pretty quick, I gave them their gifts last night, today will be about the little ones, its usally mayhem.

Do any of you remember a few years ago, we had a time of stuffing flowers, you know peeping out of everywhere, well I loved that so lets bring it back shall we :)) The actually tag was run through a new embossing folder too.

Here was me assembling what a messy picture, will have to use up my other flowers now and then cut more, they are so gorgeous.
Ok, I have waffled on enough, sorry about that its becoming a habit.
May you all enjoy your Easter weekend, lets hope the sun continues to shine and may we all be blessed this day.
