(Basic Grey) Pheobe

Not at all sure about this one! But I do love the papers - Basic Grey (again!!) - this time Pheobe. This is a fantastic selection of papers - gorgeous colours! This time I've used a Dolly Mama stamp - its the mix and match one from the clear set. I love the hair! She's way too tall to fit on the card (154mm x 154mm card).
Coloured with watercolour pencils (again! - I am such a creature of habit!). This time I used my Crop-o-dile to set the eyelets and added a wee bit ribbon.


Just called this one "Relax". I've had this stamp for a while and this is the first time I've used it. I have no idea who it's by as there is no info on the stamp! I love it though - so relaxing! All that is missing is the glass of wine and some candles!
The papers are Basic Grey - Periphery. The alphabet is Sizzix "Man Oh Man".
Not sure when you would give a card like this but it was fun to make!

I'm all out of sorts and needing to keep busy - our cat is away to the vets for a scan - she was having real difficulty breathing this morning. She's old and the vet did warn us that she may not come through the scan - she has, and now we have to play a waiting game.
My enthusiasm for card making has disappeared for the moment. It will be back. Rather than totally waste the day I thought I would make a scrapbook page to make me smile - so here she is - my Princess. This was taken when we were on holiday in October.
The papers are Rhonna Farrer - French Twist. The colours are so bright and cheery.

Called this one "Love" - not only because it shows two of the people I love most in this world but also because this is one of those everyday moments that make life worthwhile.
Papers and die cuts are from Deja View.

Gee Up Dino!

I've started scrapbooking for a change. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to make cards - think that's probably because I have too much stuff! I also have so many photos that are either hidden away in albums or just stored on the hard drive - I think I need to do some justice to them and make them into future memories! So I'm just starting out.. lots of practice needed I think!
I've used papers and die cuts from Deja Views.

Partridge in a pear tree

Totally inspired by a post on Jo's blog ( I love the idea of this folded over card so that you can see a bit of the inside too!
The papers are Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey. The image is from Pink Petticoat - coloured with chalks and glitter gel pens.

Not a great pic as it was all a bit cutthroat trying to get close! But here is my little bunny - she sat in front of the manger and sang (occasionally!). She loved it! And I made it all the way through without causing shares in Kleenex to rocket!

Big Box of tissues anticipated

It's my little girls nativity play tomorrow - the first one! What state am I going to be in? I predict major tears (me, not her!). I can't even practice "little donkey" with her without getting all soppy! Oh dear! I should add, she's the rabbit (?) and she has to sit in front of the manger with the sheep. If I manage to hold it together it will be a miracle!

Black and White Swirls

This pic hasn't come out too well - oops. Papers and image are from Pink Petticoat. Coloured with chalks.

Purple Snowman

This is my mum's christmas card - I was really really stuck what to make so I hope she likes it! Everything on the card, with the exception of the word "mum" is by Bo Bunny. This was a kit I got from QVC earlier in the year but hadn't used - probably because it seemed ridiculously expensive considering the contents! But yes, I had to have it. I do love purple!

Where does all this manic crafting happen??

...and is it tidy enought to photograph?? Well this is about as tidy as it will get I think! The photos dont show my stash of paper... that would be really embarrassing!

What is they say?? you can never have too much stuff... and there is so much more I NEED!!
