Reach for the stars

Hi there!

I have a quick little card to share ....
Thanks to a dear blog friend (love you Sue) I received some PTI dies today ...
Of course once other things were taken care of I had to make a card with one of the new dies ... The luggage tag die ... 

I used the tag to make a shaker style card ... the tag was cut from previously white CS that I sprayed with inks first

I'm still loving the grey CS and I thought this would be suitable for a girl or boy ... perhaps for graduation.

I'd like to enter this at a 'new to me' challenge blog

On another note I had to take little Ginger to the vet ... He has allergies and it makes his eyes sore and he tears at his skin ... Suffice to say I got lots of meds which together with the consultation fee totalled £87! Two problems ... He will not let us put drops into his eyes ... It stings and he goes ballistic! Secondly, one of his tablets is a steroid which of course makes him hungry but the vet has put him on a diet ... since being neutered he's put on 2 kgs! I feel so cruel right now!

I hope things are all good with you ...

Till soon

Animal Magic

Hello and good morning ...

It's cooled down here in Liverpool with some rainy nights and it's made life much easier ... I can sleep (cat permitting) and I'm not feeling so drained...

Today I'm hosting the challenge at City Crafter and the theme is
Animal Magic

Doesn't that guy just make you smile?

The challenge is to Create a card or project that features an animal

Now you all knew I'd use cats huh?

Well, there's Gypsy on the fence ... Ginger watching her (as he always does) and Teddy always somewhere in the background hoping to steal their food

I used the Memory Box star stencil again on top of some old Prima (Jack and Jill) paper and sprinkled glitter on the wet paste ... It's really sparkly and the cats are covered in Glossy Accents

My sentiment is computer generated...

Our GD this week is Bev (Gotta do the happy dance blog)... winner of challenge 212 ... Bev makes the most terrific cards ... please click the link and go take a look and say hi!
I can't wait to see what she comes up with this week along with my fellow DT so I'm off to the City Crafter Blog to take a look at all the projects ... I'd love you to come too and be inspired to join us this week.
Once again our winner will have a GD spot with us so get out your goods and start creating!

Have a wonderful day

Hello ...

At Our Beautiful World today we have a new word prompt brought to us by the lovely Robyn
The word Robyn has chosen is Time

I only have 2 simple photos for you this week ... 

For me Time is life and life is Time

It can pass by so quickly when it's good Time or drag it's feet when it's bad Time... 

There is no escaping it and it isn't always the greatest beautician 

But every moment of life is etched by Time and a million stories can be told

We'd love you to share your Time photos and maybe your stories too

I bet this one really gets you thinking

Have a wonderful day and enjoy your Time

How's your week been?
Well at last it's friday and the weekend awaits ... I'm hoping for cooler weather and maybe a good night's sleep ...

Today is a special day for a dear blog friend ... 
The lovely Stella  ( A Little Bit Of The Things I Enjoy) is celebrating her birthday!!

Happy Birthday To You!!

Here's a card I made for her ... hopefully it will have arrived by now

I know she's more of a 'blue' lady but I'm hoping she'll like this ... 

Some stencilling, paper piecing and lots of tiny beads

Have a wonderful day Stella ... sending Big Hugs

Mixed Media Mermaid

Hello from a very hot UK ...
We have a breeze blowing but it is still stifling and I am longing to be by the sea ...
Alas that can't happen so instead I created another sea themed mixed media wall hanging ...

I saw THIS brilliant tutorial by the equally brilliant Gabrielle Pollacco ... I was smitten ... I had to give it a try ...

Here's my version ... 

I used so many things here ... occasionally taking thing off and putting things on ... the background was  quite easy ...  I've watched a lot of you experts doing it for so long and with such lovely results

I made the mermaid and the shells ... everything else came out of my supplies

I wanted it to look like that little mermaid had broken free from the net

Dreams set you free ....

You remember my Dolphin Tag from a couple of days ago? Well, Miss Sophia my great niece was here yesterday and was besotted with it Lol! I asked her if she'd like it and she just lit up ... said she would love it to put on her wall ... So we wrapped it in pink tissue paper - Her favourite she said ...
I can't resist that cutie and she ended up going home with a box of my creations ... And she made a card for me too!

I'm catching up with my BFF this evening ... looking forward to it

Thanks for looking in

Till soon

Happy Birthday Charlene and Christmas at City Crafter

Hello and good morning to you ...

A bit of a long post as today is not only a new challenge at City Crafter, but we are also celebrating our lovely DT member Charlene's Birthday!

Happy Birthday sweet lady!

This card should be waiting for you when you get home ...
I hope you are having a wonderful time and your day is really special

At City Crafter this week we have our lovely Kirsty hosting with a 
Christmas in July challenge
(Make a Christmas card)

So here's my 2nd Christmas card this year!

Quite a simple one using the new digital paper line from Pink Petticoat to cut my stars and the word Joy ...

I tried to keep up with trends here by using vellum, sequins and some wrapped silver thread

My fellow DT members have some more inspiration for you up on the blog and of course we'd love it if you left your birthday wishes for Charlene too ...

I have Ross and Sophia coming to see me today so I'd better get organised

Have a beautiful day ... Be safe
