Happy Friday.

  Good morning I hope you are all well and that at last we have a nice day here in the UK. I made this for a dear friend, it was a long time in getting to her but I know she understands my lack of speed...good job I don't make them for a living anyway... I have had this image so long and no idea where or who it came from, sorry about that.  I deckle edged the image, the background is a gel plate creation from a while back which is layered up,  and the little tag was punched out on a woodware punch. Thats about it, I know she loved her card because she told me quick as a flash :)) Now these I made up quick on the machine for Mia, just things she said she could use, the black one I stencilled using soft touch fabric paint, which is amazing stuff BTW. so another happy chappie...haha.   Have a lovely weekend.

Back again...

  Best be careful you don't get sick of me. Been seeing this type of card design alot on pinterest and then I think Beccy did a couple on FB. Me not having any big floral images decided to google and managed to get one to try out.   Printed the image large enough to cut up for the cards, coloured with Copic markers, ran some card through a swiss dot folder, cut the image in half and fussy cut. The christmas word die is branded just don't ask, sorry. Question, do they need a touch of glitter or anything, sorry once again about the quality of the pics. the lighting is just awful here right now. I might add I have now bought a nice clear stamp set to try out more of these, yes I am that taken with them.:)) Added glitter....better hands down :)) Thanks for your lovely comments on wednesdays post, really appreciate you all, if we find anything I will let you all know.xxxx      

Broken clock.

  Found an old-ish clock in a cupboard, why oh why would I keep it !!!!!! anyways, took it to pieces , got youngest son to cut me a circular piece of board to act as the base, slotted it into the frame, covered with some nice DP a quick coat of modge podge and the glass face slotted in, Mia loves her new tray, haha   So got rid of yet more rubbish and made my sweet girl smile, I didn't get time to put any handles on, if anyone remembers the woodern one I made from an old picture frame it was so much more than this but still, nice change I think and it passed an hour on :)) ************** On a different note, I don't always talk about personal stuff thats going on because we all have troubles, but recently I was in a mess, my wonderful daughter Carla, was suddenly rushed to hospital and was very poorly, she had developed sepsis, my heavens I have been a wreck, trying to carry on but terrified. Well she is on the mend, very much a lucky girl right now and I thank God so much but

Here again....

  Last week I saw this new image from Dr Digi and thought 'why not', so I did and here he is, not as planned but turned out ok I think. Sorry the pic is abit blurred, I have no idea why and it annoyed me but thems the breaks I suppose. Coloured with PM pens, some glossy accents on the clock face and his boots, the DP is a strip from an old pad and the little banner is a docrafts . I ran the white card through a CC folder.   Thats all for now, take care.xx

Quick-ish post

  Hope your weekend was good. Our sweet girl Mia left for Uni yesterday, so many tears, we are a bunch but she is one of the lucky ones and the sweetest girl you can ever imagine, for me, my reward for years of life not being so good, grand kids are the best. ************************* OK, made this to take my mind off things, its just a tag with other tags in a pocket on the backside, some torn paper and a touch of silver foil I found a sheet of card from Hunkydory in a drawer, ran it through a TH folder, tore up some black card to make the wrap around pocket, added some metal do dah thingys to stop the punched holes tearing and some black fine cord. Added some dies and a touch of rub on foil.   Added more small tags and some whote doodles for the back pocket. Thats it, sorry for the 'not so quick post' :)) I am off to do something, anything to take my mind of my Mia not being around, she is ALWAYS around here getting coffee of snacks or watching the Gilmore Girls, which btw sh

Happy Monday.

  Hello all, I hope you all had a nice weekend and are having a lovely afternoon, I have been getting all my washing done, its another glorious day and Mia has given me lots to sort before she leaves on Sunday, but I don't want to talk about that :)) Went to have a look at Hetty Clare and found this little cutie you so here is my card. Coloured with PM added some bits and bobs I had in a box from ages ago and the DP was a freebie from somewhere....{oh shoot me now :))} Inside I just made a small pocket to maybe add a letter/note or cash who knows.   My only regret is that I didn't give her more colour, she looks abit wishy washy but maybe next time, still very cute though. OK so its now just past 4 o'clock and I have stuff to bring in before the chill gets it.   Thankyou for coming and having a look, it means alot.

Two posts in one week...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  Hello lovelies, isn't it a beautiful day, wow, I hope wherever you are the sun is shining down on you, makes all the difference. Had this image printed out since last Christmas and never got round to colouring up, well, I spotted him in a recent move around I was having and made this card, its another of Mo's wonderful images, I love her stuff so much. Coloured with PM the DP is from works and die cut quite a few words out to give it abit of substance, thats it.!!   Inside just used same DP and die cut Merry Christmas. Hope you like, may have to think about who to send this one to, don't want any misunderstanding, I can do that without blinking of late. Have a lovely weekend, take care and I will see you next week as I have a couple more things to show.
