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 Challenges #215 Anything Goes with the option of Transport

 Hello again from Sunny Scotland

I have lots of washing out, taking advantage of the good day.

It is time for the challenge at Creatalicious Challenges

theme is Anything goes, but the option is Transport.  Most people think of cars for this I think, but i chose something different

Yes, I chose a horse.  A lazy horse i should say, and I don't think it will transport her very far! lol!!

I love Thelwell images, they are so funny, but cute at the same time! Why don't you make a card with a transport theme?  Be like me, get a different form of transport than cars.

Thanks for stopping to have a wee look at my blog, please leave a comment for me.

Jackson and Lara?

 Hello once again and thank you for popping by my wee blog.  I thought I would share the card I made recently for my grandson Jackson.

This image from Mo Manning just looks so like Jackson and my dog Lara.  I coloured using my Polychromo pencils and  I tried to colour the dog to look like Lara.  

I would  like to enter this card in the following challenges.

Creatalicious Challenge #214

 Well, I'm late again!!  time is passing so quickly now, it is unbelievable!!

I'm 3 days late posting this item, that's very very bad indeed.

It's challenge #214 at Creatalicious Challenges.  The theme is Interactive/Fancy Folds

I also forgot to do a fancy fold, so I'm really really really bad

our sponsor this time is The Paper Shelter

These are colours I wouldn't usually use, but I discovered 
that these little metal flowers matched 

I'm trying to use up stuff in my stash that I have had for ages,

 so, 1 thing down, 3,000 more to go! lol!!!

I tried to put my watermark on this card, but my laptop kept rejecting it for some reason, so I'm off now to find out why it won't accept it.

Thank you for stopping here, and I hope to see you again really soon.

Take care!

Creatalicious challenges #213 with option At/In the water


Hello again, and thank you for joining me today.  I haven't had much time for crafting lately, as I have been busy in the garden.  

The weather has been fantastic, so my hubby and I took advantage of that.  Lots of flowers, which we grew in our greenhouse, have now been planted. our garden will hopefully look wonderful once all the flowers come out.

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

We're sponsored this time by 

Here is my card using Peony Mermaid

Isn't this a gorgeous image?  I coloured it with my Polychromos, it was a joy to colour  the artist has made it easier for you with her clever use of shadows on the digital image.  

So, out challenge is open, and I'm late posting this, so it will be short and sweet!!

Bye for now, but please leave a little love, if you stop here.  Stay safe xxx

Creatalicious Challenges #212 with option - For a boy

 Hello again, and welcome to my wee corner of the world!  We have had lovely sunshine for the past few days, and it hs been super hot!!  I love it!  My husband and I have been busy in the garden, so busy that I forgot to put my blog post on here on 31st May.  Silly Me!

So without further ado

Our sponsor this time is Polkadoodles

I was given the image Superhero  this image will be so useful to make cards for my grandson to give to his friends on their birthday.  


I coloured the image using my Promarkers, and I used up
little pieces of paper from my stash of "boys' papers"
I hate to part with scraps of paper, Are you like that? lol!! Paper is my guilty pleasure. 
 I just love it.  Any size, any shape, any pattern, any colour!! 
 If you want to make me happy, just give me a paper pad.

Why don't you enter your card for the boys on the Creatalicious Challenge Blog?

I actually wonder where April has gone too!  I missed the deadline to get my Design Team card on the Creatalicious Challenge Blog. Oops! My Bad!!!!

This wee image is called Chibi Fuschia Fairy.  I coloured her with my Polychromo Pencils and the sentiment was a free stamp from a magazine.
