Happy Sunday.


Just popping on to show a couple of little bits I made the other day while in the mood. I sent for these little serviettes because I fancied them, when they arrived hey were very small, cocktail size, so OK I knew I  had some small-ish wood hearts about and this is one of them.


Just lots of modge podge and gentle touch, I cut the message out with same tissue that was mounted on card and modge podged that too, ribbon  from stash, then a good spray of my CC varnish, {I'll show that ribbon, haha..} waxed cord  also stash.

On the back side I just put some smooth white card and tore a couple of flowers and the modge podge came out again.


Sorry the image is abit blurred.
I really enjoyed doing this so made a panel and stuck on a card with a Thankyou die cut and Mia grabbed it haha.

Hope you like these as much as I do.

Happy Easter.


I hope your all enjoying a lovely easter weekend, not to much chocolate here, I really don't need it...

I have made a card with an old image I only occasionally use, she is cute isn't she.

Coloured with promarkers, the DP and ribbon are from stash, the banner was WOJ. The oval lifts to reveal the sentiment...


Sadly I made it to late to post anywhere so in a box it goes.
Used another banner inside and stamped a few eggs, btw the blue was abit darker than I wanted but thems the breaks I suppose.
Now my granddaughter Mia came wondering in the other day wanting to create something Easter-ish!!!!! to put on her new wall of billy bookcases, so we made this in quick time, and added the tag I was making to put on her easter gifts...
Looks like mayhem in a basket, haha..poor little chicks are all over the place but we did laugh, alot...
Sorry about the pic, I sprayed it with CC spray and it speckled abit..
Thats all from me for now, I hope your having a lovely weekend and finally getting to see friends and family closer than before.  Please stay safe lets not forget it altogether....

A bit of crafty stuff.


Good morning I hope your all enjoying a nice, chilled Sunday, just had my bacon and egg butty so I am ready for they say..

I am up to all kinds of things but thought I would share these before they get so lost never to be seen again.

Its Teddy Bo time, I still love these images, coloured with flex markers, the background is made up of a few random stamps and thought I would try be abit more colourful.

Then last week I made a couple more tags, and just could not be bothered blogging them at all, I feel I am getting rather lazy, but hey!!!!


Sadly the colour just didn't show up, its really quite nice, its one I made on the gel plate but you will hopefully believe me.I added silver foil in bits and bobs and I used various dies and stamped a sentiment.

This one I made simply because I felt 'that way out' that day and I had these strip sentiment and some old DP which all made sense on the day.:)

Now for something abit different, I made this just to keep my hands going, its lovely Shetland wool from Yorkshire trading, very soft and I wanted to try it out. Of course I had to add fringe, I do love fringing. Its been hand washed and naturally dried and its kept its shape, all good.
And what I should have added is it is a crochet item..{.thanks Carol I should have said something.xx}

Thats it for now, I am trying to get round to things as I go, been getting a few things sorted that were getting on top of me, I think I might get used to doing things when i please. Have a lovely day and thankyou so much for coming and having a look round.xx

Tag time.


I know I am taking a break but this has been on my desk for a week, never get round to finishing and just kept adding colour here and there, well I had to back away and this is the finished item. I read this morning that the Tagit tuesday have a theme this week of anything with wings..perfect I hope.

Started with white corrigated card and a piece of mountboard cut to shape and just began adding to it, craft stones, metal gears, chippy glasses, TH charm, the wings are from a set I had in my stash for ages and the bolt thats screws through to hold the chain is also a TH most from stash, then the painting began, whatever I added I wasn't happy, so I let it dry and remembered my cream chalks and got the blue-ish look from those, then finally sprayed it with Crafters Companion varnish , I use it alot it jst fixes everything it also makes for a more rigid finish.PHEW....sorry...:)

Tag tuesday use  Wings

There we go, I have another one but I will sort tomorrow don't want to bore you to death in one go. Hope your all well, the lockdown is easing from today, schools are going back etc, lets hope for the best. God knows I need to go shop, and I don't mean food...can't wait.

CraftyCatz challenge #541 ATG


Good morning, this is my last post for CraftyCatz for a while.

I was about to step down as I feel at odds about everything just lately, I'm not enjoying things like I once did, its all becoming 'hard work' if that makes sense, anyways, my good friend and boss lady Sue, had a hissy fit and now I am taking a 'break', haha , its ok she knows I love her to bits and we really are real life friends...and the girls on the team are the most wonderful bunch, they support each other all the time, I am sure the old saying, 'be the woman who straightens another womans crown', applies to this lot I really am so I would miss them too much. So break it is, not from all blogging I will be here and coming to see you as per. PHEW!!!!!!


OK, here is this weeks, hosted by AuntySue herself and sponsored by CraftyRibbons, the optional theme is use Die and/or punches.

My card was made for a friend and she has it now so ok to show.

The image is a Mo,you can find the shop HERE , it's one of a few I bought from a GV I got for my birthday from my wonderful friend.

Image coloured with promarkers and cut with oval die. The back panel was cut with TH die set, a few paint splashs were added behind the panel and the little sentiment stamp I had in a set. Inside I just added a happy birthday die and again splashed with paint

Thats it then, sorry for the long drawn out post today.

CraftyCatz challenge #539 ATG


Good morning another Friday has rolled in, the weeks do fly by and the weather isn't really picking up much, although we did see some sunny skies mid week which was brilliant.

This week is my turn to host and pick the optional theme, so I went for In the Garden.

Our sponsor this week is Beccys Place and the images were provided for us.

 This image is part of a set, you can find all the images HERE.

The sentiment is pc generated although I actually own this stamp but can I find it...guess  I dare you..!!!!!!

The gingham is a piece of vellum, it came in a huge pack I bought from Aldi years ago, all for the princely sum of £1...


Thats all for today I think, hope you will pop over and join us and see what the girls came up with, they are a talented bunch.
