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 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!

Crafty Catz #151


Hello once again!  It is sunny here today, with a very strong wind 

and the temperature has well and truly dropped.  I wish I stayed where it was warm all the time!!

The challenge at Crafty Catz Challenges is 

Have a watercolour background and we have no sponsor this week.

I have used a card which I have just made with the ladies in my Craft Class.  They all really liked it, and they enjoyed making it.  I try to do different forms of crafting with them, and I am always looking for new things for them to try.

Yellow is a colour I don't use very often, but I must confess, I do like the way this card turned out.  It was funny when the ladies realised I had used a Dymo machine to make the sentiment, and they were saying how unusual it was to do that on a card.  I do like the effect though. 
Now, it is over to you.  enter your card at Crafty catz weekly challenge and you may be picked as a winner!!

Crafty Catz Challenge 243


Hello again!!  Did you miss me?  I'm afraid I was a very bad girl last week and I didn't do a post as time ran away with me.  I seem to have so much to do at the moment, but I'm slowly ticking things off the list.

So, without further ado, here is my card for this week.

The theme is "Make it Sparkle"

We don't have a  sponsor this week or a prize, but you will receive a badge for your blog if you are lucky to win

I have used 2 images from Mo Manning and I have merged them together.

You can't really see the sparkle on my card, but it is all over the snow on the ground and on the snowman.

That's it from me today, I'll hopefully be back next week!!
