Another One From The Greetings Farm!

Here's another stamp I've had for a little while and only just inked.....I just love this little lady! Very basic layout yet again but just had to use my Martha Stewart punch which I bought recently......I know the rest of you ladies have had these punches for ages but I really couldn't justify buying one until recently when I thought "********, I deserve it"!!!!! As if you didn't know (!) the image is from The Greetings Farm and coloured with PM's and doodling and then layered onto some scrap paper and punched one edge with my new punch. Other papers are also from my scrap box and added two jumbo eyelets from SU (just love these!) and some ribbon from Hobbycraft. Working my way through my paperwork....just a bit more filing to do and then I can relax and concentrate on my crafting/blogging for a little while! Enjoy your day!


Sam had a party to go to on Friday and me being me meant the card was!! I was still finishing it Friday morning as they were eating their breakfast and wrapping the present!! Anyway here it is......extremely simple but it did the job. The image is another one from The Greetings Farm which I bought a little while ago but have only just inked up. Coloured in the usual way with doodling around the edge. Papers are scraps from my stash, sentiment is Lizzie Anne Designs and used my SU punches on a couple of the paper layers. Big apologies for my serious lack of blogging but trying frantically to try and get my paperwork sorted this weekend and then hope to be able to start visiting your blogs once again. Now it's one more glass of wine for me and then it's off to bed!

Oops x 2!

I've just got home so this will be another quick post while I'm waiting for tea to cook and ironing at the same time! I know we all have hectic lives but I've done something unthinkable because I'm always rushing around and not at all organised - I missed two birthdays! I hate it when that happens so made the following cards for the two girls in question. The image is from The Greetings farm, coloured with PM's with Sakura glitter pen on her wings, papers are from Blonde Moments with some mirricard, letters are from Doodlebug layered onto Bazzill c.s. and flowers and gems are from my stash. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Hippy Chick

Hope you've all had a good weekend. The weather improved dramatically today so apart from working first thing yesterday morning, I've had quite a relaxing couple of days, mainly due to the fact that I've had Tony here most of the weekend cleaning the drive and painting the decking so I could sit down and relax. After all our ups and downs, he can still be quite considerate and wanted to take some of the stress off me as he knows how busy I am.....bless lol! Lewis had a birthday bash to go to yesterday so needed a card for his friend Kea who had reached the ripe old age of 11! The stamp is from The Greetings Farm and she's been coloured in the usual way with some Sakura glitter pen added to the flower in her hair which doesn't show too well in the photo. Papers are from Blonde Moments and flowers, mirricard, brad and ribbon are all from my stash. Sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. Another simple one but it's the only way I can craft at the moment becau

Where Did That Week Go?!!!

Oops! I did promise to post my other card and it's only taken me a week to load it on my blog....the days are flying by so quickly and it's Friday again! Here's the card I made last week for my friend...... I've used Melinda Blowing Kisses from Whiff of Joy and coloured her with PM's with some Sakura glitter pen added to her wings and the hearts. The papers are from my scrap box and the flowers are a mixture from my stash. Added some chipboard numbers and finally, rounded the bottom corners with my SU punch. Oh nearly forgot, added some Papermania sticky gems, a charm from Ebay, and a bit of the usual doodling to frame the image. Have managed to make a couple more cards this evening so once I've photographed them in the morning, will load them on my blog....just hope it doesn't take me another week to do it lol! Enjoy your weekend!

Can You Spot the (not so deliberate) Mistake!!

Oh, I've done it again! Made a couple more cards which were on my 'to do' list and managed to forget to photograph one doh! Anyhow, here's one of the two I did photograph! Can you spot my mistake? It's pretty obvious to me now although at the time, I was in such a rush I didn't realise where I had gone wrong - I've made Tilda look like she's only got one arm! I thought the other one was part of her top! I made this card for a friend of mine so I zipped it and hoped she wouldn't notice......which she didn't! Can you believe I've had this stamp for absolutely ages and this is the first time I've inked it up! Coloured Tilda with PM's with a little Sakura glitter pen on her wings, papers are from Blonde Moments, ribbon is from East of India and chipboard numbers have been painted with my own mixture of acrylic paint with some Lil Davis sparkle stuff added as the final layer! Must put yet more washing on so will be back soon with the

Happy Together

The weekend's gone (again!) and still haven't managed to make many cards - I made one for my SIL's birthday today and forgot to photograph it! However, was asked to make a wedding card which I haven't done in ages and came up with this. The image is from Penny Black and has been coloured with PMs and added a little glitter with my Sakura pen to the Bride's headdress. Doodled around the edges and then matted onto Bazzill c.s. Vellum is from K & Co and lace is from my stash. Sentiment is from SU. Layered three flowers from my stash with a pearl brad from Papermania and dangled a "love" charm from it. Finally, rounded the corners with an SU punch. Must admit it does look alot prettier in real life! We had a lovely weekend once I'd finished work Saturday morning but it was spoiled yesterday - Tony was on his way back to his Mum's yesterday morning and was involved in a car crash! He wasn't badly hurt but has got whiplash which isn't
