About Me

My photo
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 who lives with his girlfriend Kim and their wee girl Freya 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!

Well, it is Wednesday once more so it is Let's Scrap Sketch Reveal  day.  The sketch this week is based on a card so it didn't take nearly as long as a layout to do.

Let's Scrap 09-21-11

I thought I would make a start to my Christmas Cards so this is Number 1!!!!!  It's a very simple card, but I like it.

Mo's DP2 Challenge #100

This card below is being entered into Mo's Digital Challenge where the theme is Celebration.  What better to celebrate than the birth of a new baby, so I have made this for my friend's son and his wife who have just had a wee baby girl and they have named her Eva.  I love this image and will definitely be colouring up another one to make another card like this!! 

Now - on to the important stuff.  October is Lupus Awareness Month and I do a fundraiser every 2nd year.  Normally, we do the "Extra mile walk"  which is a 3 mile walk, and then an extra mile!!  I have always had to rely on other people to do the walk for me, as I can't walk that far, so this year, I thought I would do something different, and I will be doing a sponsored swim.  I will do a mile a day for 4 days, making the 4 mile total required.  To do a mile at my pool, you need to do 80 lengths and I can normally manage 60 on a good day, therefore I need to get some training done.  I also only normally go 3 times a week, so I am adding on another day as well!! So from normally doing 180 lengths over 3 days, I am now doing 320 lenghts over 4 days.  (Am I mad, I ask myself!!??) I have been poorly for the last 2 weeks so didn't manage any swimming at all, but managed back today and I did 50 lengths in 50 minutes, which I thought wasn't too bad as I didn't want to push it.  Next swim will be on Friday and I will give you an update then!!  Watch this space!! LOL!!!

Love your cards! I need to get started on my Christmas cards, too!

Also, I was very happy to see your Lupus fundraising efforts. My mom has suffered from Lupus for years; it's a disease that needs more awareness!
