Bad news comes in three's !!!!

Hi All,

Well they say bad news comes in threes, and I am having my turn of it this week. Firstly my washing machine decided to conk out on Sat. Then yesterday the fuse kept blowing in the shop, got an electrian out and they think my wiring is shot. They have got me some lighting working as a temp measure, but it looks like I have got to have it all re-wired.
Thirdly and the most worst new of all concerns Abbie, we were at the hosptial last week for our monthly check up and last night her consultant called last night to say that the psuedomonas was back this time with avengance. We had to go back up and see them today and they explained how this was going to affect us now (I wont bore you by going into details). We are all in shock and totally devestated by this news, the upshot is that this will have a massive affect with her lungs and in her life expectancy. Sorry but I dont really know what else to say, but as you have all been so concerned about her in the past, I thought I would let you know how things are at the moment.

Will be back soon with some more cards, thanks for popping by my blog today.

Shop Samples

Hi All,

Well things have been pretty quiet round here on the crafting front, so not much to show at the moment. I have plenty of ideas swimming around, but just dont seem to have the time to actually sit down and craft. I have had a lovely parcel of stamps delivered the other day from Paper Artsy, you know some of those weird ones and am looking forward to having a play with those.

I just remembered these 2 cards, which I made as samples for the shop using one of the new ranges from Wild Rose Studio. So I thought I would show you these.

Looking Chic & Blog Award

Hi All,

Have another new card for you tonight, not made for any challenge but purely because at the Demo Day my friend
Fern pinched one of my stamps and coloured her up with a red coat. The image looked fab and I have been wanting to do it myself, so I did.

The image is a new Penny Johnson stamp from Stampaive, after colouring her coat red I have teamed her with Hampstead papers. A few paper flowers and some gorgeous raffia lace & gingham ribbon.

I have also been awarded this fab & funny Blog Award from one of my Customers the lovely
So here is the deal :- Post the award on your blog and tell 6 outrageous lies and 1 truth about yourself, or switch it to the other way round.

Are you ready (lets see if you can tell the truthfull one lol!!!!!)

1. My children are the product of a very steamy affair with Robbie Williams
2. I dont ever ever ever!!!!! eat chocolate or drink wine.
3. When I was younger my mom dressed me up in loo roll and sent me to a fancy dress competition as Little Miss Andrex.
4. I have such a fabulous figure, I never ever have to wear those Bridget Jones style pully in pants.
5. After having looked through my wardrobe, I have decided that I have enough Shoes and Handbags and dont need to by anymore.
6. I am a fantastic singer, but never go on X factor just in case I put the others to shame. I would win too easily you see.
7. I think I have enought craft stash to last me a lifetime, so I wont buy those new papers I have my eye on.

The next thing is to pass this on to 7 blogging buddies, so I will choose some friends of mine who I met through the shop, and who I think would be up for the laugh!!.

Wishful thinking

Hi all,

Well we had had an action packed few days here, am glad the kids are back at school tomorrow looking forward to the couple of hours rest lol!!!

Today's card is for the Charisma Cards challange, which this week is flowers. Not hard really as most of us use flowers on our cards, although as you will see from my card I have flowers on the papers, on the image and some for embellies as well (so well and truely covered it). I have followed a sketch, but its from a few weeks back and im not sure which challenge blog it was from (sorry!!).

The image is one of the new Leanne Ellis designs from Sugar Nellie, coloured with Poly's for a softer look.

In the Garden

Hi all,

Well another day, another post. Today's card is for three challenges - Friday Sketchers for the Sketch, Stampavie & More for the theme - Summer and Creative Card Crew which is a colour combo of Pink & Green. There is a bit of blue & cream in there too, but its mainly Pink & Green

I have used a gorgeous little Sarah Kay, coloured with promarkers and distressed around the edges with Tea Dye, teamed her with the delish papers from the Papermania Rose Garden pad and added some fabulous flowers and pins, a bit of tulle and another one of those fabric butterflies. Finally I spritzed the whole card with pearl Smooch Spritz Spray.

Hello You !!

Hello again,

Blimey 3 days and 3 posts I must be getting back into the swing of things lol !!!. Over at Stamp with Fun this week their challenge is to make a doorplate.

I think my creation is more of a door hanging rather than a plate, but it is along the same lines.

I took a scalloped circle chipboard shape, covered it with paper and then sanded the edges to try and get a more even shape on the scallops. I have then set eyelets in each scallop and threaded ribbon through making a loop at the top. The gorgeous image is from Stampavie and I think this cheeky chappy looks fab popping up over the plaque to say Hello!!. Finally finished off with a few cherry blossoms and pins.

lazy summer day

My stamps that I ordered for the shop from Stampavie in Feb, finally came the other week and I have fallen in love with some of the gorgeous Sarah Kays.

This image is called Isabelle with puppy and it makes me think of lazy summer days enjoying picnics in the park, which is fab because the theme over on Cupcake Crafts Challenges is summer delights and I have also followed the fabulous sketch over on Sketch Saturday .
