Christmas Wishes

Christmas is the time for family and friends,right ?


Well please forgive me for being an absent friend 
but you know what happened before with Darling Hubby.
 He's doing really well but I haven't crafted a thing in all this time. 
However,
I just couldn't let Christmas Day pass without wishing you all a 

VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS

I have a Winner

Hello Everyone x I hope you are all keeping well and are crafting away like mad and producing all your usual gorgeousness. I haven't managed to make anything myself and I have committed the worst sin ever for a crafter- I have bought some Birthday cards from a High Street store ! Shame on me (bowing my head in shame) but I just couldn't put glue to paper or ink to stamp to save my life just now.

Someone asked me the other day to give her one word that would describe me and I said "Tired"!!
It's true but never fear,after a good break and a little holiday,I hope to be back, bright-eyed and bushy tailed.

In the meantime,what is much more important is that I have a WINNER of my First Blogaversary Candy . I didn't have the help of my Grandson this time but after checking that you had followed the rules I asked (shy) Hubby to do the honours and he pulled a name from the 'hat'....................

and it is you    ......................................  MAGGIE

I see you are my newest Follower Maggie and you are very welcome. If you will send me your Postal Address I will get the Candy to you very soon.

Thank-you to everyone who entered and I am sorry I can't send you all some Candy but I do send you my love and hugs xxx

A Brick Wall

Have you ever hit a brick wall ?
I have - metaphorically speaking that is !

No crafting.
No nothing.
No worry.
I'll be back after a good rest.

In the meantime my Blogaversary Candy Giveaway Deadline is fast approaching.Just a couple of days to go and then I will pick a winner.
Hugs to you all xxx

An Apology and a Bit of News

An apology from me today because I don't have a card to show you. The little light at the end of the long tunnel I wrote about last week went out  : (
I did manage to get to the workshop last Thursday at The Scrapbook Shop and it was good but I haven't  managed to finish the project yet so I can't show you what I made.Sorry.
Also, I have reluctantly stepped down from the Design Team at My Time To Craft Challenge . Too much is taking up my time at home and something had to 'give'. It wasn't fair on the rest of the team so with great regret and sadness I reluctantly stepped down. I am really sorry about it because I loved working with the rest of the DT and I will miss them.
Finally,I may not be crafting much but when I do, I promise to show you what I make. I will also try to visit you when I can.
Lastly,I still have my Candy up for grabs until the 30th June so if you would like to win it please click on the link in the side bar and follow the rules.( PLUS If I get 50 followers I will add more goodies to the Candy)
That's it folks but I hope to see you again soon. Hugs x

Hearts for Daddy

Good Morning Peeps xxx  How are you today ? I think I am feeling a little less stressed.I might be actually seeing a light,albeit a tiny light,at the end of a very long tunnel. Hubby is getting better,I have had a bit of time with my sister and she is going back to Italy tomorrow and I have booked myself a place on a workshop at my favourite craft shop (The Scrapbook Shop) for a bit of 'me time'. Hopefully I will be able to show you what I make later.

A boost

Stunned and gob-smacked to have been picked by Ann on the DT at The Paper Players
with this little offering as one of their A Cut Above :
 
Ann said this about my card :
Who can resist a cute, scruffy face? Not I! And for this reason I selected this adorable card by Maria. Maria used a perfect color palette and executed a simple design to place the focus where it should be...right smack dab on what has to be one of the cutest doggy stamps I have ever seen! To further accent the image, she printed off a customized sentiment and designed and cut out the bones! This is a perfect example of whimsy done right! And now I am off to the cupboard to fetch those Boxer Twins a treat or two! Congrats, Maria, for being my choice for A Cut Above!

It is so uplifting  when something like this happens x Thank you Ann and everyone who came and visited me because of this little card. x

Panic is setting in !!

Morning All xxx
I think everything has caught up with me and I need to step back and review what is going on in my life, so with that in mind I am going to take a bit of a break. I am NOT going to stop crafting,nor am I going to stop visiting your blogs to see your wonderful work but I am going to step back a bit before panic sets in.
As well as coping with my Hubby's illness and all that that entailed,he has many appointments including a twice a week/8 week Rehab Programme at the hospital which starts today and on top of that my sister is coming to stay with us this week. She lives in Italy with her Italian husband and I haven't seen her for 4 years so we are very excited about her coming over and we have lots of visits to do as well as lots of catching up.
I will be back tomorrow to tell you about the challenge at My Time to Craft Challenge and I may get the chance to show the odd card I made a while ago but for now I just wanted to say I'm here and you are not forgotten !
See ya later alligator xxx 

PS.Don't forget I have Candy on offer x

Give a dog a bone ..........

.......... and he will  __________ (fill in the blank/s) lol
This week at My Time to Craft Challenge the theme is 'Very Funny' - anything that makes you smile or chuckle - and this little dog makes me smile and chuckle : )


He is sweet and I love his cheeky antics. The stamp is called Bonnie Westies and is by Little Claire Designs. I stamped the design on to Neenah card and used a mix of Promarkers and Copics to add minimum colouring here and there. I'm not very good at colouring in animals so don't look too closely.



I wanted to keep the design reasonably simple so I stuck with a limited colour palette of blue and white with a bit of brown. You have noticed the string of bones of course and you will forgive me for using  bunting again - I think I am getting obsessed by it so watch out for more.I drew the bones onto scraps of Bazzill card,cut them out and strung them together with Butchers Twine.The bunting is simply fastened onto the front of the base card.The blue background paper was printed from the Polka Doodles Paper Boutique Vol 3. You can't tell from the photo but it has various doggie related words on it such as bark,growl,and woof. The stamped image has been mounted onto a white scalloped square cut using a nestie, which matches the base scalloped square card.

To complete the design  I added the ..... give a dog a bone ..... sentiment which I made on the computer and cut out with a Spellbinders Shapeability Label Die using a technique I picked up HERE from my team mate Chrissy (Thank-you Chrissy it only took me 3 goes to get it right. lol). Finally,I added tiny black gems to the noses - not sure if they look right but I love added dimension so I just went for it !!!


It would be great if you joined us this week with our challenge over at My Time to Craft Challenge with your Very Funny creations x

Well I'm off now as Hubby has his 6 week review at the hospital today so hoping all goes well - see ya later x
Update - Very happy to say the Doc was pleased with Hubby's progress - everything is healing well and all the signs are good for a full recovery . He is now discharged from that particular hospital and he just needs to continue with the Rehab Programme at Durham. Huge relief x Thanks so much for all your concern and best wishes xxx

Happy Birthday Bunting

It is my darling husbands birthday tomorrow and he never likes any fuss so what will he make of this :-




Does it look 'girlie' ? In real life the colours are much deeper and quite masculine I think but probably I should have made straight edged hearts and not scalloped. Nevermind,I hope it appeals to his never-to-be shown feminine side LOL




It just so happens that the theme at My Time to Craft Challenge today is Die Cuts so I was able to combine my DT work with making something special for the birthday celebrations. (I have made a few more things to go with the bunting but I can't show you yet - hopefully on another day x)

The Recipe :
Cut scalloped white hearts from card stock
Cut straight edged hearts from patterned paper (in this case Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934)
Adhere patterned hearts to white hearts
Cut lettering in black card stock (I used Tim Holtz Vintage Market Die)
Adhere lettering to centre of hearts
Punch small hole near top of hearts
Use ribbon or Butchers Twine to string hearts together as desired
Display banner as required

I would love to know what you think of my banner so please leave me a comment if you have time x
AND did you see my post yesterday ? A sneak peep at some candy I am putting together for my lovely followers,coming very soon !

I would love to enter the following Challenges :
1.Truly Scrumptious 57 - Anything Goes
2.Crafty Catz 83 - Anything Goes

4. Polka Doodles 20 - Anything but a Card

It is nearly 1 year

I can hardly believe that it is nearly 1 year since I started this blog. It was a very scary prospect because I hadn't done anything like it before and the nearest I had got to blogging was on a craft forum (now closed) and on facebook (plodding along nicely - not fb, me on fb lol).
Anyway the point of this post is to say that I intend putting some Candy together to celebrate my First Blogaversity so watch this space and here is a sneak peek  ;-)

 More details soon xxx

Toybox Treasures

Over at My Time To Craft Challenge this week the theme is Toybox Treasures and for my DT card I went back to one of my favourite designers for inspiration and made this great shaped design.

Have you guessed who the designer is ?
Here is another image with a few additional props :


Yep ! It is from the creative mind of Nikky Hall at Polka Doodles.I used the Two by Two template from the Paper Boutique volume 3. As I was pressed for time this week (my 'nursing' duties take up a lot of my time I'm afraid )  I utilized the print,cut and create templates. They are brilliant and I would recommend them to anyone.Why not go and have a look.



Here is the back of the card and as you can see it is also printed with a mirror image.


This strange photo shows you the inside of the design which I printed a blue and white spot design (again from the Cd). The sentiment too is PD.I cut it with a scallop Nestie and matted it on to a larger scallop cut from  left over card. I did the same with a small flower punch. You may have noticed that the front design is layered and that the back is flat. I used foam pads to give dimension to the front layers and Glossy Accents to make the windows shiny.
The design lends itself to a few occasions I think - a child's birthday,birth of Twins,Engagement or even a New Home.In this case I settled on the sentiment "Congratulations" (it covers a few of the above) and used a stamp from Waltzing Mouse Stamps cut again with a Spellbinders die. Oh! nearly forgot - I couldn't resist the little bow ; )
I would love to enter the following challenges :-
1.The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge 9 - Babies
2.Make it Monday 37 - Anything Goes
3.A Spoonful of Sugar 152 - Anything Goes

I love a scallop or two

Morning Peeps x I hope you are enjoying a good start to this lovely Tuesday and it progresses into a wonderful day for you all x I don't know why I feel happy today but it might have something to do with having my super Hubby home for a whole week !! No more long journeys to the hospital every day and lots more 'us' time - heaven !!
I am also quite happy with my My Time To Craft Challenge DT card this week,especially as my Mojo up and left and only reappeared the other day - phew !! I had serious words with him (it has to be a him to be so naughty !!) Anyway,here is my little effort:


Cream backdrop showing a cream card base isn't the best way to show my design this week,so forgive me for poor photography but this first shot is to show the layers I have used to give depth and dimension.


The challenge this week at MTTCC,as you might have gathered, is Scallops and I have made full use of them by using red and white scallops cut from Bazzill card as my main focus.The cake image was stamped on to Neenah card using a free stamp set from Molly Blooms. It was free with Simply Homemade Magazine a while back.By the way,it is the first time I have used Neenah card and I must say I was very pleased with the quality and performance. I'd definitely give it 10/10.


I deliberately kept the base card plain because I felt there was enough going on with the shaped card and the added banners,hearts,stars and button elements.A patterned background,I felt,would detract from the main design but you decide and tell me what you think.I won't be offended if you don't agree.I used Promarkers to colour in the main image and all the other elements and secured them in place with foam pads.The final touches included adding faux stitching,Glossy Accents and 2 red gems as cherries on the cakes.

I would like to enter this into :
1.Make it Monday - 36 (Anything Goes)
2.Papertake Weekly - Fancy a punch ?

My first twisted easel

I hope you don't mind that I have used another LOTV image to do my DT card for this weeks challenge at My Time To Craft Challenge but because they are so lovely I just can't resist using them. Can you guess the theme just by looking at my card ?



Yep ! You got it right !! A Red and White Challenge. A bit obvious I think especially as I went totally OTT with the colour scheme.


I have made many easel cards as they are a favourite of mine but this is the first time I have made a 'twisted' easel.It wasn't difficult but I see that you clever people now do double and triple easels - wow! I might get around to it one day but I will never catch up lol.
Okay here is my recipe :
White Bazzill 6"x6" as the base card
Floral backing paper from Crafters Companion
Red card from stash
White paper from stash
LOTV cute square
LOTV stamped sentiment
Martha Stewart Punch around the Page
Nestie scalloped circle die
2 red gems
3 hand-made flowers (shown on previous tutorial and highlighted in picture below)

It would be great if you joined us at MTTCC this week. Why not pop over to see the fabulous examples the other team members have made for you ? - go on you know you want to xxx

I would be pleased to enter this into :-
1. Paper Cupcakes - Birthday challenge
2.Totally Gorjuss 78 - 3-2-1 
( 3 hand-made flowers,2 punch around the page,1 circle sentiment )

Two more Thank - You Cards

Fingers crossed we will be able to give our thanks to the great staff at The James Cook Hospital very,very soon (hopefully this week !)

I have used this cute little nurse image from Heather Ellis and I coloured her with Promarkers to coordinate with the colours from the designer papers from Cosmo Cricket - Garden Variety. The sentiment is from Waltzing Stamps and I used a Woodware Tag punch to cut the shape.I used my Nesties to cut the circles and tried the 'out of the box' technique for the first time.



This version is using the same Heather Ellis image but the colour scheme is more girlie to again coordinate with the mix of papers I have chosen. The pink card is Bazzill,the gingham background paper is Crafters Companion and the floral paper is from Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose. The sentiment this time is Papermania and cut using this time a small Woodware Tag punch. I used my oval Nesties again with the same 'out of the box' technique.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
1.Craft your passion 56 - Anything Goes
2.Pollycraft 91 - Anything Goes
3.Papercutz 89 - Anything Goes
4.Wags and Whiskers 53 - Use Dies or Punches

Thanks a Bunch

I haven't made many cards lately as you know but here is the first of the Thank-You cards I have set myself to make for the nurses and hope to give in the next week or two. As you can see I have incorporated the Thanks a bunch circle sentiment that I showed you yesterday.

I have used the lovely image "Busy Doing Nothing" from Sheena Douglass that I have used before and which I stamped,as before, on to watercolour card and coloured with watercolour paints.You may have guessed that she is my favourite.


As you can see I have used several layers in my design. First the base card is an 8"x 8" scalloped edge card from Craft UK.The pretty blue background paper is from Cute Companions Vol 1. I made the doily on my Silhouette machine and threaded satin ribbon through some of the holes and I think the result is effective.

The image is layered on to blue metallic card from DCWV as is the circle sentiment which I generated on my computer.I used a scrap of the same card for the MS Butterfly (another favourite). I can't remember the make of the flowers which I bought ages ago but I think you will be seeing a lot of them as I have a shoe box full of them in lots of different colours lol . Finally,did you notice the shine on the dress ribbon ? I wanted it to look like satin so I added Glossy Accents and it seemed to work.

I am hoping to enter this card into the following challenges (the first for a while !!)
1.Craft your passion challenge 55 - Show us your layers
2.Top Tip Tuesday challenge 31 - Square Challenge
3.Simon Says Stamp challenge - Anything Goes
4.Charisma Cardz 17 - May Flowers
5.Moving along with the times 96 - Anything Goes
6.Sarah Hurley 40 - Butterflies

Thanks a Bunch Freebie

Dear Hubby is still in hospital but we can see a light at the end of a very long tunnel at last ! So in anticipation of handing out Thank-You cards sometime soon to well deserved,hard-working nursing staff, I have been trying my hand at producing a suitable circle sentiment.This is what I came up with :


It is simple but effective I hope. I originally designed it to fit one of my punches and copied and pasted it several times to fit on an A4 sheet. I wasn't sure how to show a single image here in it's original size but by taking it into a design programme such as My Craft Studio it can easily be altered to any size you wish.

I'm sure most of you will know better than me how to do these things but if anyone wants to copy this image they are welcome to do so although it would be nice if you could mention from where it come and include a link to my blog. Thanks a bunch xxx

Perfect Pets

Have you got a perfect pet ? We have - our Suzy Cat. She is so cute and no trouble at all, infact she has been good company for me lately although she much prefers Hubby. However, promise not to tell her but I would love a little doggie.One to go for walks with and groom and play ball. I love the idea of this great doggie image from LOTV with his young master - going everywhere together.
Don't you ?


This is my DT card for My Time To Craft Challenge which this week is entitled Perfect Pets. I am not entirely happy with my design this week and if I had the time (and energy) I would re-do it.
I know what's not quite right with it but I'm not telling !


The design started with an 8"x8" white square card base which I covered with a background paper that I made by stamping on a dog image over a distressed design from the Basic Grey basic white paper pack.The dog stamp was part of a free gift with a recent magazine purchase.The LOTV image was stamped onto watercolour card and coloured with watercolour paints. The spot paper is from the Basic Grey Kioshi paper pad and I pulled out the colours from this for my colour scheme for the image and orange glitter card.The circle doily is Marianne and the sentiment is LOTV.
We will be so pleased to see your Perfect Pet designs at MTTCC this week so do come and join us with your perfect pets.

Good Friday

I should be happy tonight.
Hubby was allowed out of hospital for a few hours this afternoon and our son brought him all the way home just so he could spend a little time in his own home with me.He has now been in hospital 31 days and he is going stir crazy. He should have been home on Monday but he got a blood infection which knocked back his progress.He is still very weak and has lost a lot of weight. We haven't been told yet but it could be another week before he gets the all clear and finally gets discharged. 
It can't come soon enough for me - then I will be happy.


Thank-you to everyone who has sent me kind messages x

Easter Wishes to You All

I have had a hectic time since last Thursday and it continues but I was able to put a simple card together yesterday for this weeks My Time To Craft Challenge which has the theme of Easter Wishes.
I used this super sweet image from Clearly Vintage and teamed it with a background paper from the Popcorn Bear Cd : Birthday. I printed the image twice and decoupaged one cut out image of the girl and the rabbit onto the other with foam pads to give added dimension.
For a change I have made a gate fold card base made with Yellow Bazzill Dot and I used the same card for the Marianne Creatables fancy corners and the image mat.
The opened card shows the insert that you can create also using the Cd. To complete the design I added a little glitter to the flowers and two butterflies cut from the same background paper and embellished with blue gems.

(A short update : Hubby had his Bypass last Thursday but is still in hospital because he now has an infection and has been really poorly.He is as weak as a kitten. I'm so hoping that today he will have improved as the antibiotics do their job.)

Friday, 15 April 2011

Medical Update

My gorgeous Hubby had his Bypass Operation yesterday and I'm happy to say that everything went well and now he is on the road to recovery. It is early days but we feel confident that he has a great medical team looking after him and he will be home very soon.
I also want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has left me lovely messages. I want you to know that they mean a lot to me and they really help me to cope. XOX

On the Spot

I have made my first card in nearly 3 weeks thanks to this weeks challenge at My Time To Craft. The theme this week is On the Spot so anything that has something to do with spots and dots  - easy peasy !!


For obvious reasons you know that my mojo is rather low just now so I was pleased that I had treated myself to some lovely LOTV images recently. This is one of the cute squares so I didn't have to colour it in and it meant I could make a quick and easy card this week. The spots, regarding the challenge, are on the background paper and also on the dress.


I have teamed the image with a lemon and red colour scheme. The spot background paper is Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety,the lemon base card is Bazzill and the red card is from my stash. To complete the design I have added a white heart shaped doily,a metal heart charm,a die cut flourish from Marianne Creatables, cut from silver mirri card and a red organza bow.

I do hope you will join us at MTTCC this week as it's always lovely to see your fabulous creations.
Love to you all xxx

Nautical

It is difficult for me to craft at this time so I hope you don't mind me showing you a few cards I made last year  (and have already shown on here)  which fit the theme at My Time To Craft Challenge this week.


The papers and images are all taken from Kirsty Wiseman's fabulous Cd, Colour Me Crazy.I really love these images and colours.
The rest of the DT have made some gorgeous samples to inspire you, so please pop along and have a look and I hope you have the time to join our challenge this week.
Hope to see you next week xxx

Added Note :
Just to explain : I'm finding it difficult to craft because I'm tired,I make a 50 mile round, road trip to the hospital each day,get home late and not surprisingly,my head is somewhere else. Sorry x

Mum's the Word


Here is my DT card for the My Time to Craft Challenge which today is entitled Mum's the Word (or in my case Mam's the word ).The design is taken from the super Polka Doodles Paper Boutique I Cd which is probably my favourite PD Cd to-date.


The card is an A4 size and about 10.5" high.The flowers are formed and layered to give dimension. I added double layered MS punched butterflies which I glazed with Glossy Accents and added  letters die cut from TH's Vintage Market ( I might change the Mam to Mum for D in L to send to her Mum if she wants it).


It is embellished front and back.The Tags can be positioned where preferred or left off altogether.


The inside is decorated with a large matching flower.
I do hope you pop along to MTTCC and join in the challenge this week as it will be great to have your support and see your creations x


A Personal Message
A BIG Thank-You to everyone who has sent their best wishes and kind words for me and my husband. It is wonderful to know that there are such good people in this mad world. Your prayers must be working because he is remarkable well considering everything. The staff at the James Cook Hospital are looking after him really well and hopefully he will get his operation in the next week or two and then be on his way to a full recovery.Love to you all xxx
