2013 review....

I can't believe we are at the end of the year....I would like to take thank all my visitors for popping by over this last year....I know my posts have been few and far between but I promise that will change in 2014....I plan to be more organised...and not just in my crafting!
I have spent this afternoon looking through my makes over the last year and have a few of my faves to share again......
these were my first go at scrapbooking...I picked up a lovely photo album in one of the local charity shops, brand new and perfect for some of the old pics I have of my parents and Grandparents...I am so happy with how these pages turned out!
these are the cards I made for my girls birthdays and they were a big hit!
A wall hanging....found this one hard to part with!
something a wee bit different! I attached the Tardis on an Action Wobble so it bounces about on the card
My first go at Shabby Chic Style!
I do love my Gorjuss Girls and they have been a bit neglected in 2013
Loved making this card and paper piecing all the different mattresses!
Finally a few altered hearts....I could go on and on but will leave it there...thanks for looking and a Happy New Year to you all! xxxxxx

Santa Door Hanger......

My turn to post over at Dies to Die For today! I have made a wee door hanger....
Firstly I gave the hanger a wee coat of white paint.....the papers I have used are Magnolia..(which are now in the clearance section, go grab a bargain!) and MME Mistletoe Magic.....I have also used this gorgeous Hero Arts Snowflake die, I cut one in white and one in Vellum to layer over the top....I love this one and have been using it loads! The little blingy sparkle  is from Prima and I have added some bits of trim to finish it off!  Oh and you gotta have a Snowflake charm!

Have a lovely Sunday!!

Penguin Joy......

Good Morning! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! Anyone putting decorations up yet? I have scheduled this post as I am currently on a little jolly to Glasgow visiting family and with a bit of luck squeezing in some Christmas shopping as I haven't got anything yet....gulp!!
This is my second card for posting over on the Dies to Die For blog....still pinching myself!
This is shamefully only the second Christmas card I have made! Isn't this a cute image?  It's Penguin Joy from Whimsy Stamps....my wee girl has her eye on this!
The scrummy papers are from Echo Park and you can find them here I have also used the Christmas Greetings die from Die-namics

Sunday, 24 November 2013


So a while back I added my name to be considered to be on the DT for the amazing Dies to Dies For...not thinking for a minute that I would be picked....but I nearly fell off the couch when I received an email from the lovely Tracy asking if I would like to join the team!
So here is my very first card that I have shared today over on the blog!
I have used this gorgeous Memory Box Frosty Border  which I have added some stickles to to make it sparkle....the large snowflake is from a Marianne Design Creatable set....

I also had my Craft Fair on Saturday.....I was soooooo nervous as I have never done one before let alone organise one! I hardly slept the night before and was awake far too early......we had 8 tables of lovely crafts...it was sooo busy I never got a chance to get close up pics of all the lovely things everyone had!  it is a brand new church hall so it was beautiful and bright and airy...the Womens Guild were at the other end doing teas and coffees.....these pics were taken just at the start as people were coming in and the place was chocka for most of the day....I sold out of some of my stuff within a couple of hours!
oh I hate getting my picture taken

there is a room up the stairs that Lucy went up to to take these pics.....heehee the man with the grey jacket and glasses in the middle is my hubster!

heehee there he is again lurking with my Mum

The Church were really pleased with it and have asked if we can make it an annual event which made my day!

Thanks for popping by today!

Saturated Canary challenge #53!!

Yeah! Time for a new Challenge over at Saturated Canary and this time it is my turn to chose a theme.....drum roll......

"Paper Piecing!"

Now the details....

I have used the fabulous "Princess Peanelope"  I have never really done that much paper piecing before so wanted to give it a try and I have to say this one was a bit of a challenge but I am sooooo pleased with how she has turned out.......it took me forever to print out each wee piece of the different mattresses....I used up a load of my scraps to make this card!
I have added a tiny wee pea.......I gave this card to my Goddaughter....when she was little I was staying over at theirs one night as her Mum and I were having a wee wine and nibbles night....she put a pea under my pillow to see if I was a princess....cuteness!!
I hope you like and that I have inspired you to have a go and enter the challenge!

Saturated Canary Challenge #52

Time for another Saturated Canary Challenge!! This fortnight the lovely Vicky has chosen Shabby Chic!

Now the details....

I haven't really done much Shabby Chic before so after a quick few hours on Pinterest I had an idea of the style
 I have used the beautifully cute Butterfly Baby  lots of layers, distressing and inking of edges and I am pretty pleased with the result!  I am even happy with my flower arranging too! 

On a sadder note....I don't know if any of my lovely followers remember the guinea pigs we got from the rescue centre a couple of years ago....well Jude's one, Coco, died on Monday when I got home from work, she had been poorly for a wee while and I think her wee body just gave up....it was very sad.... and I had one of the worst moments for a parent...telling Jude when she got home from school...her heart was broken 

This was the letter she wrote when she was at school the next day....I had tears streaming down my face when she showed it to me!

Arrow Zombie.....

 Another Halloween card...this time "Arrow Zombie" the papers are from my new pad BoBunny Love Letters....again she is coloured with my Copics....greys and a bit of green for that zombie look!
I have spent most of today colouring....Lucy has been away at Cadet Weekend and Jude has been playing the Wii......will hopefully get them all on cards in the next few days!

Got my Spook on......

 Have you seen the gorgeous Halloween Digis over at Saturated Canary yet? Krista has come up with some yummy new stamps....they are FAB!
This is the cute "Vampire Pumpkin" ain't he sweet?
I have used my Copics to colour him and I have tried to keep him pale so only really used a small amount of grey on his skin....didn't want him to look to scary so gave him some little pink cheeks with some chalk...

On another note I just had to share my new funky wallpaper.....I am sooooo chuffed with how it all looks...although we still have to paint the rest of the room......we were supposed to do that in the summer hols but the weather was just tooooo good to spend inside ;0)

Off to finish off my second spooky card...see you tomorrow!

Sunday, 1 September 2013

Boy cards.....

Boy cards...always low on my list as I really struggle to find embellishments for the male gender cards....you can't throw loads of flowers and butterflies at them! So during the summer hols I spent a day just making boy cards.....so here are a couple of them....

  P.S.    please check out the tab at the top of my page....I am selling off my Promarkers...£1 a pen, I have a separate page showing which colours I have left, feel free to get in touch if you are after any ;0)

Enjoy your Sunday!

Saturated Canary Challenge #51

OOOo late again sorry!
We have a good one for you over at Saturated Canary Challenges this fortnight....the fab Ruby gave us the challenge to use a "Colouring Technique", so No lines, fancy backgrounds......you get the idea?

Now the details....

Now I have to admit I kinda freaked a bit when I saw the No lines as I have only tried it maybe once or twice...and I know I could have gone for a fancy background but I like to challenge myself! lol  I chose Mousey Mo   (little secret...chose this one has she only has one eye showing and that seems to be the bit that I struggle with...shhhhh don't tell)  I was cross-eyed by the time I had finished....you certainly have to concentrate!
I took sooooo long to colour her that I decided to let her be the main focus of the card and kept the rest pretty simple....

We have had drama here this past week.......Jude was sitting on a fence at the local playground chatting to her pals and fell off....resulting in a broken wrist!! For those who follow my blog...the SAME one she broke and dislocated last year.....I was so scared that she had dislocated the elbow again cos that would have meant a trip to Inverness to get it pinned....eeek! But thankfully it is a small break and she will get the stookie......scots word for cast ;0).......off on the 16th!

We have hit Challenge number 50!!! And this fortnight it is Rebekah's turn to choose a theme...

"Winged Things"

Now the details....

 I have used Catching Butterflies....now I made this card a while back for this challenge and when I made it she was in the shop, but unfortunately she has been retired.
She has been coloured with my Copics....the papers are all from my scrap box with a little bit of doodling and those yummy butterflies are clear acetate ones which I coloured with my pens...

Another angle so you can see them fluttering..........please head over to the blog......there are some to die for creations!
