Not been feeling too great the last couple of days. Children and their germs!!!

We're heading down to York tomorrow to visit with my Dad and his partner for the holiday weekend so no time to make anything other than a card for my friends boy which I can't post yet cos she's a follower.
Here is one I made earlier tho

Not my best colouring, I'm finding that when I look back at older cards in my Box I'm often horrified at the colouring so I'm replacing a few images. She's not bad enough to merit that tho.

Sugar Nellie image is Jelly Pip, sentiment is LOTV and the rest from stash.

I'm entering her for The Sugar Bowl - Free for All
and Divas by Design -Anything Goes

Thanks for looking, leave a comment

What a weekend (long)

End of the week was spent helping Emma with a school project.

A recycled woodland scene. thanks Pinterest for the paper bag tree idea.

On Saturday Sam had a Trip to Kelburn Country Park with the Anchor Boys.

Pete, Emma and I went to a Family fun day run by the Wednesday Club, a youth group Emma goes to.
It was on a camp ground they have out the back of beyond where they go for camp.

Lots of fun had, playing games and messing in the Burn, eating burgers etc
I made sure there are no photos of me, tho I have a cracker of Yvonne in full flight!!!

Back home and time to watch the Grand Prix Qualifying, tho I didn't make it as far as Q3. Yawn!

Sunday had a Riding Lesson for Emma and then thru to Cumbernauld for their Rugby clubs festival.
I'm sure other clubs played wringers against Cartha's Micro's as they all towered over our lot.

And I won a bottle of Vodka at the tombola!!

After that a visit to the lovely in-laws who live locally.
Finally home for the whole Sunday night routine and then the Monaco Grand Prix.


I have several cards underway but nothing completed so you'll have to wait for a crafty post.

The above is my excuse

Woo Hoo

Busy weekend here and I've lots to post about but just a quick one for now

I made the Top 5 over at Cupcake Craft Challenge with the card I made for Yvonne.

How chuffed am I!!

Normally evenings, and hence after school, are busy but the kids organisations are coming to an end for the Summer. Makes life calmer.

Scrapping or scraping

In March my Uncle passed away leaving his house to my Mum.
She has decided to move into it as it's got 2 bedrooms where her own place is only one bedroom. The  problem is that it needs completely redone.
So today was spent stripping wall paper and there are layer upon layer of papers on the wall. Some of it must be older than me. So next time you decorate think of the poor people years from now who will need to remove it and don't paper on paper.

Any way on to some crafty stuff - here is another commisioned card.

The image is Lili of the Valley, matted using Martha Stewart Cherish punch around the page, Stickles on cake and wings, everything else from Stash.

I'd like to enter this to Paper Pretties Monday Challenge - Glitter

and Divas by Design - Tickled Pink.

I actually did it....

post again.  Woo hoo!!

This card I made for Sam's friends birthday. I'm rather chuffed with it.
Sam was more chuffed with the gift I got for Aidan, an Ironman Blaster glove thing, so much so I had to get him one too!

The image is Lili of the Valley, ticket is Tim Holtz and everything else came out of my stash.

I'm entering him for the Totally Papercrafts No Pesky Girls Challenge.
And the Crafty Creations Challenge Male Birthday Card

I've roped my lovely friend Susan into cracking the whip to get me posting so hopefully I'll keep the momentum going.

Really late.....

I know I said I'd post more and I haven't done a thing.
In celebration of restarting I've made over the Blog to this nice bright theme.

My defense is that in the process of moving the kids into their own rooms my craft stuff got buried and I really didn't make a thing for 6 months.
Then a friend asked if I could make her a couple of cards so I got the finger out, excavated the Stash and created these

This is a Ladybug Crafts Ink image coloured with Promarkers and blinged with Stickles.

 This is another Ladybug Stamp - Matini Nikki also coloured with Promarkers
All the papers are from stash.

She later told me that her daughter-in-law has framed them and last years card which I'd also made and has them in her hall. Isn't that sweet.

I'm trying to keep up the creating by doing challenges and I'll work on my photography too.
