IT'S HERE!!!!!!!








Friday, 22 June 2018


Here I am again!!

I know you are not used to seeing me pop up with 2 cards
in a week!! I even have a third one in draft!!

I actually make hundreds for the Charity I support.
A lot of them are what I class as, not as specials.  
Of course they do have a selection of specials,
but they call me if they need a very special one.

They do like CAS cards, that they can use for any occasion.

This one will be with me on this Saturday 23rd June,
at The Farmers Market/ Village and Craft Fayre.

It's in a village in Norfolk called Martham.

The image on this card is a free download from

I do love their Digis and they are great to colour.

I used Distress Inks for this sweet girl.
They are always my favourite to use.

Thank you for all your lovely messages on my
last post. I enjoy reading everyone.

So thanks for taking the time to pop in.

One Stamp

Morning all,
I thought it was about time I posted a card or two that
I have been making and not a Christmas one!!

This is an old favourite stamp from Hobby Art.
Love their stamps and Jenny, the owner,
used to have a table at the Craft Barn weekend 
Extravaganza events.

I was demoing at the stall next to her on one of the days.
She is great fun too!!
You can still buy this stamp and is so easy to colour.

I have used Copics this time.

This first one I think has a vintage feel.

This next one is a bit more modern.

We are waiting for a guy to come and finally 
connect and supply our Smart Meter reader, up to EDF.

The meters were changed on the 10th November 2017!!
They were unable to connect them on the fitting day,
as they couldn't get a signal on their Mobile phone!!

A few months later, they managed to connect the Electricity, 
remotely from their base but cannot do that with the Gas.

We did have 2 other appointments made to do this and
then cancelled at the last minute.

We are just hoping that they turn up today, 
just over 7 months later!!!!!!

Update!! They came and we now have it working!!

So there we are, 2 non-Christmas cards!!

Thanks for taking the time to visit.
Would love a message so I know you have been.
They are always treasured.

Winter Wonderland Challenge

We have another challenge at Winter Wonderland,
starting today.

Our host for this challenge is the lovely Kath
and she has a gorgeous prize for the winner.

Check out the WW blog and see the prize!

The theme Kath has chosen is 

Christmas Birds.

I have used an old stamp from my stash, 
which I love to use.
I coloured it with Copics.

Unfortunately you cannot see that the 
circle frame and the snowflakes
are cut from glitter card.

I hope you can join us at Winter Wonderland
and at least you can make a start on making 
your Christmas cards. 

As a design team, we will leave you a message,
so you know you have been.

Thanks for stopping by and for your
lovely messages you leave. 
They are all treasured.

Big hugs,

Absent From Blogging!!

Sorry that I have been absent from blogging
and will catch up over the next few days.

We have just had a week in Yorkshire, exploring the Moors
and the Dales. We were based in Thirsk, which is a lovely market town.
It was made famous, from the television program,
All Creatures Great and Small, many years ago.

We loved this program and they have now made a reality 
series, with real life Vets and follows them around 
to real life animal problems.

At the opening of the program, they have the 2 Vets standing
on the Moors, with an amazing scene behind them.
Seeing this, we decided that we just had to got to Yorkshire.

We actually found the view, which we couldn't believe
how we did on our first day on the Moors!!

This is it!! 
The pictures are a bit hazy because it was a very hot day
and it was heat haze.

We drove up a hill that was 25% steep to get here!!
In the next picture you can see the road in the middle, 
which is the one we came up from!

This card was a stamp that came with a magazine.
I really loved colouring this one with Copics pens.

I struggle with cards for men but this was nice and easy. 

Thanks for visiting my little blog corner
and hope you will come back soon.
I have displayed the new Privacy Policy, thanks to
Marianne for your help. 
I hope that you
will still leave messages. I know I will!!

Big hugs,

Here Comes The Bride!!

Hi to my lovely followers.

First a big 'Thank You' to the loyal followers that
leave me such lovely messages.
It makes my day to read them. 

I do so love visiting your blogs and always leave a message.
I thought that's what blogs were for and I am lucky enough
to have made such great friends across the miles too.

I am selling quite a lot of wedding cards at the moment.
I do love making them, as they are for such a special day
for the lovely couples.

This is just a very simple one and mainly using dies.
Very different for me, not having an image!!

The colour I added is Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Shimmer Polish.

Love this product, as it dries very quickly and the colours are gorgeous.

I bought mine at The Craft Barn. 
I started with a couple and now have loads!!

Did you visit The Craft Barn Sale?!!!
They had hundreds of orders in one day, that made part of the stock control
program crash!!

They are now finishing all the picking and packing from those orders.
They still have quite a lot of stock in some areas.

So watch for the next discount as it will be 70% off!!!

Yes I did say 70% off!!!!!!

Thank you for stopping by and you know
I will always return the compliment.

Big hugs,
