A gift for a friend.


Morning everyone, hope you are all well and coping with this quite miserable weather, yesterday was gorgeous, although I did almost get blown away hanging washing out :))

My lovely neighbour, Yvonne, moved into her home two years ago, she has been such a kind and caring friend, we hit it off from the start and she does wonders with the gardens and the lane at the back of the houses. Her only problem is she is a plant 'addict', has far too many and can't stop buying more, so when I saw this at the Cottage Market I snapped it up and made this sign for her 'she shed'.

 Easily done, just added some nice flowers, raffia and a little clip-on blackboard. I just know she will love it. I also added this little tag it took no time to put all this together as the image on the tag was already coloured up in a drawer.

Thats all for now lovelies, hope you have a good day, enjoy and thankyou for calling.xx

A couple more...


Been waiting to get my hands on this TH-EF since I saw it used at Brenda's blog recently, then it came yesterday and I got on it right away. Its another of the silver tape kind, well actually two of them, one with my old TH-EF too because I had a piece of A4 card covered in tape, why waste it...

Don't you just love all the nail heads/ it and of course I added a couple of sentiment strips, also from a book TH of course.


Hope you like and aren't sick of this type, I have done for now, well may do a nice band on a card with this tape, its about 2/3 inches wide so will do nicely for that I think.
Have a lovely weekend.xx

Another card...


Hello lovely people, well I just felt abit fed up today, so thought I would tackle an oldie  silver tape design, not done one for awhile so good excuse.

I just got my big roll of silver tape off the hook and started taping to card, cut the size I wanted and ran through the big shot, then got out the ink pad and wiped it over, cut out some leaves,( I haven't used this die in years,) and the hello and same again with ink. I like leaves to look like they have movement so curled them up abit. Ran round the edge with my wheel and added some black card before layering onto the final card.
Kept one leaf for inside, cute I think :))

Thats it again, have enjoyed doing it. Am off now to have a nice cuppa and maybe watch abit of telly, its a chilly damp day so can't sit out and have a read, sob sob...Hope your all well, thanks for your visit.

Hi everyone do hope your weekend is going well. Its chilly here now but blue skies, love it, just been cutting back some stuff in the garden, still lots to go and the flowers are still pretty so thats something but, with these cold nights creeping in, not for long I suspect.

Right I have some things but can't show yet so made a little note card to put in with any little bits or bobs you send out, always handy to have I think.

Its tiny, the backing is tissue paper I ordered for another creation from Amazon, its such good quality I was quite surprised. All the bits and bobs are from a 12x12 paper pad we bought the other week at the Range and it had so many little push out bits but there are also a couple of TH bits there too, cord is stash. I quite like it so thats a bonus..:))

I am off to get a warm drink now as that air is really cold, time for the thermals methinks, haha

Forgot to add I splashed it with some white ink...sorry.

Enjoy your weekend.xxxx

CraftyCatz challenge #605....I think :))


Good morning, no I am not 'back' I am just doing a GDT spot for my favourite team, I have the privilege of being able to bob in and out of this one its wonderful, thanks to Sue and the lovely girls, which once again includes our favourite teamie from the past Bridget from Curly Bear crafts, so nice to see her back in blogland again....

This weeks challenge is hosted by the lovely Billie and she wants us to use Stencils, was this made for me or what !!!! The challenge is sponsored by Di's Digi Stamps


My card I used a brick stencil with paste, coloured over when dry with some silver brillience ink, it looks far better IRL I promise. The image is a stamp I bought about two years ago and not used yet so stuck that on , found the snowflake  ribbon in stash, made a star and put some sparkle on it and round the edges to try liven things up abit.

Hope you don't think its abit too washie !!

 Not done much inside yet but you never know :))

Well thats it, I have enjoyed being back this week, hope the girls feel the same way :))

Please pop over and join the fun, the girls always make such gorgeous creations to inspire you and you can win a nice image or two.


  As most the world knows by now we lost our beautiful Queen Elizabeth yesterday, its hit me hard, I really feel heartbroken, she has been there my whole life and has served us well. May God bless her and now we have to say God save the King...

A card and a question...


Morning lovely people, just nipping on to post a card which I don't really like that much but seeing as how I am stuck for something else to post  (I am waiting on some decals I ordered, so angry about it...) but anyhow, I was trying to make an autunm look card, this is what I came up with.

Ok so I used a TH stencil with paste for the background panel, cut the leaves from some old inked up paper and used string for the bow, a few splats of gold ink and a nice little sentiment from this great book, TH of course. what a don't like much is the shaded bits round the edges, it now looks dirty to me but well, what you going to do :)) btw the sentiment I choose is 'there is beauty in simplicity.' Thought it was just right for this.

Side on you can see I tried to leave the leaves 'flowing' haha.

Also made this little hanger with my go to stencils, I love these

I love the ribbon which I got from Amazon what a great deal, four big rolls all different but will match up for a tenner, this stuff will last for ages.
Thats about it, hope your all ok and not worrying too much about the coming winter and the bill hike, what a joke...
Question time...any of you ladies own a cricut machine. Are they worth the investment, and just how easy to use and expensive to run blah blah...anything you can say will help me decide, only asking because this decal thing is costing way too much and I have been waiting for some, which I paid over the odds postage for since the 14th August only to be told they ended up in Newcastle !!!!!! so still waiting...Help....
Thanks for your visit, take care..x
