Not my idea!

Hello!   Before going any further, this card is not my idea.  All my inspiration came from the very talented Dena Rekow at the Creativity Cave.  I saw a card that was posted on Pinterest and found it on Dena's blog.  I just absolutely love it!  Then I had to make a card for a very good friend leaving work and this one just seemed perfect!  And as Colton once famously said "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"..  so here is my card.

Time to play

Hello! It's a Monday holiday here - but the schools aren't off so I have some time to play!

It's been a busy weekend and I really should be spending time doing some housework.. should be.. hmmm!

I have a bundle of new stash to play with and it's all just been sitting in a big pile waiting for me. So, I've made a start at having a look through.  Although my crafty mojo is playing hide and seek at the moment!

Here goes, Stampin' Up! Totally Trees with a sentiment from Blooms and Wishes.  Stamped with Flirty Flamingo, Rich Razzleberry, Wild Wasabi, Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso.

Fun and simple.

A cold Friday!

Hello! and welcome to nearly-the-weekend!   It's freezing here in Scotland - considering it's supposed to be the tail end of summer (what summer??)

It's been a busy day today and now I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend with some crafty time too!

I've finally had a chance the play with  the 3rd set by Kim Dellow for PaperArtsy.  I just love these stamps and all three sets work so well together!

All the elements on this card are coloured using PaperArtsy Infusions and Dina Wakley Gel Medium (matte) (for Ranger).

Great fun with the paint brush and using the stains kind of randomly!

You Make Me Happy!

Hi! Happy Thursday! Yay, it's nearly the weekend!   What a good week it's been so far, although, some unexpected expense! Looking forward to a busy week too. It's non stop!

I'm still in desperate search for my crafty mojo but I did try to stay focussed to make a card.  No colouring involved... just some die cutting!

What I really need to focus on is tidying up my craft room.. apparently it has a floor but it's covered with new stuff that I've not got round to playing with yet... maybe a tidy up will be my inspiration!

Happy Monday!

Hello!  Well, here we are at the start of a new week!  Been school uniform shopping today. Nearly done!  And some lovely girly lunch too!   Then a last minute unforeseen purchase of a fridge/freezer as ours decided after about 8 years that it was no longer cool to be cool! 

And after all that, some crafty time.. I'm in desperate need to find my mojo after nearly a month of very busy work and holidays so I took my inspiration from a card I saw a while ago - not mine, so not claiming the credit!

Now I really need to tidy the craft room and find things again!

A busy weekend!

Hello!  What a windy day it is here!  I've been catching up on bits and pieces - typical after being on holiday for a fortnight!  Missing the gorgeous holiday weather too!  Also missing life on the very lovely Independence of the Seas!

This picture was taken in the south of France, the weather was so beautiful.
Now I really need to get down to some crafting as I have some new bits and pieces to play with (including the new set from Kim Dellow!)
More soon!

Busy just doesn't quite cover life at the moment but normal service (lol!) will return soon!  And I'll also be getting to grips with this new member of the family.. nice to have something good after so many bad and worrying things!  :-)
