Hello ...

Happy St David's Day and Welcome March!

Today I have picked the word prompt for 

This week your word is Tangled...
And I'm am a little embarrassed to share this photo of my ribbons all tangled up ... 

I'm certainly no neat freak ... But hey this is me

Looking around at the trees and the garden made me think of the word ... everything seems to be tangled this time of year ... or maybe it's just the bareness that makes it appear that way

But do you see what I see? Look a little closer...

Cheeky grey squirrels ... These guys were having such a wonderful time charging up and down the trees and almost camouflaged in the tangle of twigs and branches

Share your Tangled photos with us this week at 

Have a lovely day

Pink Roses

Hello lovely people...

I have 2 more cards using the rose stamp by Clearly Besotted to show you ... They are very similar - Well when you like one why stop there?

This is an anniversary card I made for some friends of ours who celebrated 47 years of marriage yesterday

... The rose and stem was stamped, embossed and painted with Gelatos before fussy cutting

The next one is a birthday card for a very sweet lady I worked with over 30 years ago ... she's not in the best of health and her 93 year old husband takes care of her

 They are almost the same in design but the Gelatos shade differently on different types of card stock ... I used exactly the same red and green on both cards but you can see a slight difference

You can actually see the Wink of Stella on this one too

I hope you are having a good week ... I've 4 more days to go until I have my biopsy done and one way or another I hope they can find out what is wrong with me ... It could be Autoimmune disease they said  and there is no cure for that but better to know right?

Till soon ... be safe

City Crafter 250

Hi there!
I have the pleasure of  hosting the challenge this week at City Crafter and the theme I've picked is

Use it Up

I'm all about trying to use up my scraps and die cuts and that's what I want you to do this week
Make a card or project using mostly your scraps and we like you to tell us which bits were your scraps

Here's my card

It's very simple but the whole card was made from left over pieces from previous cards... 

I put glossy accents on the "you' die cut ... those scraps are perfect for die cutting little words and tiny hearts

Our GD this week is Oribella winner of week 247 ... click on the link and check out her lovely shabby style
Our winner this week will also have a GD spot with us so pull out those scraps and share your creations with us at City Crafter ... don't forget to go visit the Blog to see what the rest of the team has to share this week.

Enjoy your day

Till soon

Hello ...

It's bright and sunny here but we are forecast snow....
There's always lots of things to do indoors and that's where I'm staying for now

I recently bought a copy of the Cards and Papercraft magazine ... simply because there are free stamps by Clearly Besotted this month and I am a fan of theirs ... plus my friend Keren designs for them and it's always a pleasure to see what she comes up with ... 
I just love the rose stamp that was in the set and I've made a few cards using this stamp over the weekend ... Here's one of them ... 

You don't usually see me using these bright colours but I really like this ... I have roses of the same colours in my garden during the summer

I used my Gelatos to paint the flowers and though I'm not that good I do love the Gelatos and I'm happy with how they turned out and I think my fussy cutting may be improving

The sentiment is also part of the stamp set ... I'll share some more of my rose cards later in the week ...

Stay warm and have a good day

Hello ...

 I'm not going to mess up with the prompts this week

Kirsty has picked our prompt and it's

Well I didn't even have to set foot outside my craft room to find something for this prompt

My altered sewing box has circles in form of buttons and spools...
My little glass button jars have circular lids

And all those cut outs from making my special needs projects were just sitting here

...along with a few sequins and a new unopened set of watercolour paints 

Look at those colourful circles

I'm quite sure I could have photographed many more just here in my craft room ... It's amazing how many circles there are in one form or another... That's the thing about these prompts ... you see things you would have otherwise ignored....

Link up yours with us at Our Beautiful World this week

Have a beautiful day
