Time flies

   Wow can't believe it's been that long since my last post. Suppose with not crafting anymore 1seemed to drift away from it all, still got me stash though, even if it is all boxed off'. Had some highs and lows the lows losing four family members last year all in the space of four month  taken suddenly by that stupid cancer. The biggest miss being my eldest brother Alan still hasn't sunk in.. oh well i didn't come on to get all morbid. wasn't sure wether me blog was still active or not was sat 10 minutes trying to figure out me username of all things. Oh and the highs since i last posted i have 2 more Grandchildren a Grandaughter Ceinwyn and a Grandson Mason  not babies anymore but by do they keep me busy.

Hi all back with my 2nd award love the colours. This one was awarded to me by the lovely Pat, Jane & Lynn Thanks Ladies "i think" haven't got to the last bit yet :O

In return for accepting this fabulous award I now have to pass it on to 8 stylish bloggers who I love to visit, leave them a comment and then link the award back to the person who passed it to me.Then I have to tell you 8 things about myself.
Right then who am I going to pass the award to so many it's difficult to choose might have to come back to this







Now the difficult part thinking of 8 things about myself eek

I've been married to my hubby Richie for 25 yrs this coming October ouch where's the time gone.

I used to work in a florists til i ended up getting an allergy to something, real christmas trees are a no no in our house.

I Have 2 gorgeous grandsons Callum 7 & Jack 2 who needs keep fit classes.

I have another grandchild due in July 4weeks til we find out wether a girl or a boy.

I'm moderator for Crafters Companion Forum have made some fabulous crafty friends there.

I will try anything craftwise even if it's just the once just to prove to myself i can do it.

I hate craft Knives have a collection of them still to find one that i can use, is it cos i'm a lefty or just too heavy handed, i can still manage to get some fine shavings off a metal ruler when trying to cut a straight line with one.

I'm a chocaholic too the darker the better it's got to have that zing.

Thanks for stopping by.

Twisted Easel card

Hi all just finished this card went for the Twisted Easel still prefer the original fold i'm afraid the opening is a bit off putting could just be because i'm a lefthander.

For this card i've used Joy sitting a digi stamp by Sugar nellie printed onto digital ultra smooth card from craftwork cards i've coloured her with copics. i just adore this image have another one of her already coloured ready to go on a card, hopefully will get it done tonight. The DP used is double sided so i didn't need 2 sheets think it was out of a pack of 12x12 papers. i've used the reverse side for the borders with some blue card punched with a Martha Stewart border punch attached to the back. Oh well i'm off to hunt for some green papers.

Spider Henry & web Easel card

Morning all finally got round to colouring Henry mouse dressed as spiderman in after pondering what to put him on decided to have a little play & blow the dust of robo here's what i came up with a Twisted Easel card think i should of cut a different colour for the base mat as you can't really see the webbing even though it has Atyou glitter pen on it.

Image Spider Henry which was a free digi stamp from Katharina coloured in using Copics the greeting is a Martha Stewart punch.

Lady in red

Hi all just popped on with the card i just made got some lovely red & black flocked satin ribbon couldn't decide wether to use it or not as you can see i decided against it. Well the wind did eventually die down so i had a normal walk home good in a way as i prefer to see where i am going not where i've been plus it meant the lamp posts were safe can be hazardous walking backwards you know.

Oh right back to the card forgot i'd bought these Kanban stamps found them tucked away in a drawer amazing what you find when looking for something else. I stamped the image onto Neenah cardstock coloured with copics i have also used an atyou spica glitter pen (in red) on the feathers, choker, straps & gloves not that you can see it on here.The backing paper is a sheet from 1 0f Crafters companions luxury A5 sheet packs another thing i found while looking for something else i cut the flourishes from black card using various Marianne creatable dies then attached them to the card using Anita's tacky glue, the sentiment is attached too a Nesties tag with a feather attached to the back & 2 pearls added to the front.
