Home at last

Hello there...

Thank you so much for your comments and kind wishes for me and my Ginger boy - He's back home at last.
He was in a very sorry state and it broke my heart to see but with the love and care we are giving him, hopefully he will settle down and be well.
Knowing there were people out there who care means so much...

What I didn't mention was that late in the evening before Ginger took ill we also had a flood in the kitchen and somehow all the lights went out... There I was in my PJ's wading through water whilst Ian looked for a torch. We were up to our eyes in it when Ginger started to howl in pain... It was completely manic!
Hopefully today a plumber will be here to fix the cause of the flood, a blockage in the waste disposal and sink. It's weird how things happen all at once.

So...I posted a card on Saturday for my GD spot at Just us Girls and as I mentioned in the post I did 2 cards using the colours here

This is the other card

... done with stencils and distress inks

With a little stamping and embossing. 

I've some catching up to do so I'll get on.....

Have a lovely day

Ginger Boy

Good morning lovely friends...

I just wanted to pop in and let you know that my beautiful Ginger cat is in cat hospital... He developed a blockage last Thursday evening and it's been a really rough time.. Those of you who know me, know just how much I adore my fur babies.
Fortunately yesterdays post was scheduled - I just haven't been able to focus on anything these past few days and have been over to the hospital to visit my poor boy.
I hope to be able to catch up with you all very soon and fingers crossed my Ginger boy will be back with us soon.
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments... 

Till soon

Just us girls # 454


This is my 3rd week Guesting for 
and this week is Colour week
Lovely summer colours don't you think?
Here's what I came up with
There are so many ways to use these colours and I actually did another card which I'll share with you another time but this one just evolved with no plan in mind. It started with some ink blending in the 3 colours shown using 2 distress oxides Broken China and Fossilised Amber plus an ordinary distress ink Twisted Citron and then I die cut the sentiment and the balloon.

The little bear was coloured with Copics and I played about with triangle dies to come up with this design

We are so looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week... The team have created some wonderful cards to inspire you so pull out your inks, your paints, papers or whatever your preferred medium is and share with us at 

Have fun!

New Home(s)

Hello... How was your weekend?
We picked up hubby's new car on Friday and so far so good... We both love it and more importantly... No more trips to car dealerships!

I had to make 3 New Home cards last week... I usually only have to make maybe 1 a year of these type cards so I decided to keep them more or less pretty similar

Here's the first one... For a friend of my husband

The letters were cut on my Cameo and it was just easier to cut 3 lots and do some ink blending

This is the second one

Where the first card has a raised front, this one is flat as it's going across the pond to a blog friend 

And the third card

For my friend who lost her husband earlier this year and is making a new start with her two sons

 I've started to crochet again and made a few pairs of slippers. Funny, but after I lost my Aunt I just couldn't get into crocheting... It's something we started together and I had no mind for it but I'm settling into it now. I'll never be that great at it but it's just something to do in the evenings.

Ok... That's it for now - Enjoy your day

Till soon

Just Us Girls # 453

Hello and good morning!

Today sees the start of another new challenge at
Where I am lucky enough to be Guest designer for the month of August.

This week it's Trend week

It's a fun and simple technique which I urge you to try and here is a link to a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire for those of you who like me, perhaps had not heard of this idea.

Here's my card

Having stamped and embossed the flower and leaf images, I swiped them with a few distress inks...

...Spritz them with water and dried them with a heat gun before die cutting.
Of course you can just leave them to dry but I'm kind of impatient.

I love the results that you can get doing this and I hope you will give it a try. 
Do head on over to the blog to see what the team have created to inspire you this week and come and join us!

Have a lovely day

Silly Hen

Hello there...

This past week I've sent a whole bunch of cards out... Birthdays, Anniversaries, New home etc., etc., 
Since my computer was upgraded I lost a lot of events on my calendar so I'm doing my best to remember everyone ... But somehow I forgot my half brother Bill's birthday Eeek!

That called for a quick card this morning

This hen's hanging her head in shame...

Inside I put...

I think he'll forgive me though...

We're off to collect hubby's new car soon so I'll wish you a lovely day from a dull and wet Liverpool

Till soon
