About Me

Perth, Perthshire, United Kingdom
Welcome to my little corner of the World! I live in Perthshire Scotland with my wonderful husband Eric. We have a daughter, Corinne who is married to Rob and lives in New Zealand, with their boys Harrison and twins Hadley and Dylan. Marie who has a wee boy Jackson, and Greg and his wife Kim, their wee girl Freya, even smaller baby boy Freddie and dog Buddy. I am happy when I am in my craft room, and I love making cards for Charity and also for commissions. I love scrapbooking, and I get my inspiration from my Grandchildren. They are the subjects in most of my Scrapbooking layouts. I have just started to do Mixed Media work, and I am loving it!! I have just started a craft group at our local Church centre, aptly called Saints and Scissors Club! If you can't find me, I will be in my craft room, buried under tons of stash lol!

Creatalicious Challenges #178

Hello again, and I hope you have all enjoyed your Christmas festivities.  I survived mine, only just, but alas, I am suffering now, and my fibro is having a bit of a flare up.  It could be lots worse though, so not going to complain too much!

So, The Creatalicious challenge this time is 

Challenge #178 ANYTHING GOES with optional wishes & DT call!!!

What do you have to do as a DT member at Creatalicious Challenges?

1) you need to have a Facebook account as all our DT info is on Facebook

2) comment on entries (everyone has 2 numbers out of 10 entries) 
3) chose your Top 3, when it is your turn
4) Have lots of fun!

You don't need to have any DT-experience, you just need to have fun creating things.

So, if you want to be part of our design team just add "DT" after your name when entering our challenge and Melanie will be coming over to take a look at your work of

Our sponsor this time is the Wonderful Hannah Lynn.  Here is my card 

I had so much fun colouring up this image and making my card.  I really went wild with my colour scheme, which is very unlike me!!! I love the finished result though!!!  I used Promarkers to colour this one.  
I'm off for now, but take care until the next time.xx

Creatalicious Challenges #176

Here we go - it's December!!  Where on earth has this year gone?  The months have just flown in, it is really quite scary.  I am not in the least bit organised for Christmas, and I have been asked to do  Craft Stall on 14th December, so need to do extra stuff for that.  WWWAAAAAAAAA!!!  I'm sure I'll get there though.

Now, confession time.  I have got in a muddle with my DT Challenge cards for Creatalicious Challenges.  I put the card below on for Challenge 173 by mistake.  What an eedjit I am!!    I honestly can't believe I got it wrong.  I am double checking the rest as we speak. 

There seems to be something wrong with my laptop, as photographs don't appear as bright and colourful on here as they do on the actual camera/phone. Very frustrating.
Anyway, our sponsor this time is Fabrika Fantasy and the image I used is called Young Mermaid

Why don't you pop over to Creatalicious challenges and load up your card?

I'll be back soon!

Hello  once more and welcome to my wee corner of the world.  Freezing cold weather here at the moment, we all have lots of extra layers!!

I have a really bad confession to make.  I am very, very late putting up my card for this latest challenge for Creatalicious.  Time is just flying by, and another week has passed in the blink of an eye!!!

So, without further ado, I want to show you my card.

there seems to be something wrong with my laptop, as photographs don't appear as bright and colourful on here as they do on the actual camera/phone. Very frustrating.

Creatalicious Challenges #174

Well, here we are again!  It's a horrible cold, miserable, wet night here in the village, not a night to go out for any reason.  I hope this weather ends soon, but I don't know when it will be.

I do know however, that 31st October means another challenge from Creatalicious Challenges.  The theme this time is

Creatalicious Challenge #172

Hello once more!!  I cant believe that is us now into October, what a quick year this has been.   sure sign  I am getting old!  Days go past so much quicker, and I think I have plenty of time to do something, and then lo and behold, that date is here and I haven't prepared my blog post.  So sorry, but I am a day late.  So onto business!!

It is time for a new challenge again today and our theme is "Anything Goes + optional use a punch". You're welcome to join us with the optional as most of the DT did, but as it is an optional, you can also choose not to do it  -  it's totally up to you. 
We just want you to have fun with us @ Creatalicious Challenges.

This is  a very simple card, but it is sweet, and just perfect for a new baby.  I used a Martha Stewart punch in 2 places, to tie in with the theme of the challenge.

why don't you look out your punches and make a card for the challenge?   I hope to see you there!
