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!

Creatalicious Challenge #195

 Hello once again.  the time has sped by and it is time for another challenge at Creatalciou Challenges.

This time we are sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy 

and the theme is 

Anything Goes with the option to use a punch.

I chose this super cute little image, which is actually a colouring page, but I turned it into a card.   Little cupid is sitting on his bunny rabbit for a ride!

I used a Martha Stewart punch to make 2 borders at top and bottom. I coloured

 the image with my Polychromo pencils.

 I wanted to make this card as bright as possible, and I think I achieved that!

Creatalicious Challenges #194

 Well, here we are again at the end of another month.  where does the time go? Eric and I celebrated our 18th Wedding Anniversary today, and we were both amazed at how quickly time has passed.  So of course the end of the month means time for another challenge at Creatalicious challenges   

Challenge #194 ANYTHING GOES with optional pearls and/or lace

We are sponsored this time by  Cute as a Button

I coloured this with my Polychromo pencils.  I am still trying to find suitable paper for using these pencils.  The aoer i used for this image is fine, but it is a creamy colour and I would prefer it to be white.  I'll keep searching until I find something I like!!

Pop over to The Creatalicious Challenges blog and leave your card.  You may just be a winner!

Creatalicious Challenges #193

 Hello everyone!  I hope you are well as you read  my blog today.  I wish love and happiness for everyone during this sad time.  i wonder when the world will be back to normal?  I hope and pray that it is soon.

It's time for my card for the Design Team of Creatalicious Challenges.  Doesn't time fly by quickly?  It just seems 2 minutes since my last post.

The theme this fortnight is Anything Goes with Optional Anything but a square or rectangle.

I decided that another heart Triple Easel card would fit the bill.  I think it is a beautiful shape, and I love the papers I have used.  

I hope you like my card, and if you do please leave a wee comment.  I love to read them.

Welcome Harper

 Hello from a lovely sunny Perthshire.  things always fee better when the sun shines.  I thought I would tell you first of all about the birth of my second Granddaughter, Harper.  when my daughter was 12 weeks pregnant, she discovered that there was something wrong with the baby.  Some of her internal organs were outside her body.  this meant that Marie was scanned every 2 weeks and because of the Covid lockdown, her partner Jordan was not allowed to go into hospital with her.  

here is our wee miracle girl.

This Babygro is size up to one month and it dwarfs her!!  Poor we lamb has a long road ahead of her, but she has plenty love from her family to keep her going.
